{Homemade} Strawberry Mint Sorbet

May 16th, 2012 § 7 comments

Yes, you read that right. Homemade. Strawberry. Mint. Sorbet.

Did I mention it takes just minutes to make? AND that it tastes even better than it looks? Double score.

It’s so refreshing and wonderful, I promise you’ll want to savor it and share it with friends all summer long. You should definitely make it for guests after a dinner party. “Homemade sorbet anyone?” you’ll ask as you clear the table.

Well, color them impressed!!!  You’ll be the talk of the town. {It’s really that good.}

Don’t worry  – you don’t have to tell them how simple it is, or that it only has 5 ingredients.  Shhh, I won’t tell either.

Strawberry Mint Sorbet

Adapted from a recipe by My Green Diet

  • 2 cups frozen strawberries, cut into pieces
  • 1 frozen banana, cut into pieces
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup {or to taste}
  • Around 10 fresh mint leaves, washed with stems removed
  • Water as needed

Using a Cuisinart or blender, chop the mint, frozen strawberries and bananas {using the pulse function helps here} until they resemble the consistency of snow cone ice.  Then add the lemon juice and syrup to blend into a smooth sorbet.  If your mixture remains solid and not smooth, add a few teaspoons of water at a time until it blends into a smooth consistency without any chunks remaining.

At this point, your sorbet will have the consistency of soft serve ice cream.  Serve immediately, or scrap into a freezer safe container and save for later. To serve, just allow the frozen sorbet to soften at room temperature for 10 min or so before scooping.

Bon appetite luvs!!!

PS –  Play around with making your own sorbet flavors!! Just imagine the endless possibilities…
