Yummy Fruit Sorbet

Strawberry Sorbet

I went over to a dear friend’s house for a cook out a couple of weeks ago and she made me realize that healthy and homemade can be easy and tasty!

She had me chopping sweet potatoes for fries, had the guys making hamburger patties and then she went downstairs and brought up some of the applesauce she canned herself (which was so good I wanted to sneak it in my bag and bring it home).  Then to top it all off, after we ate this wonderful home cooked meal, she made this strawberry sorbet.  It was healthy, tasty and the perfect dessert to eat to get in the mood for summer!

I got the recipe for my own selfish reasons but wanted to share with all of you lovely folks as well.

My friend made sure to let me know “I’ve made it using limes, strawberries, peaches, raspberries, blueberries, and lemons.  All so stinking good!  Be warned though, the blueberries leave you looking like you haven’t brushed in a week!”

  1. I will definitely be trying this! A great use for the frozen strawberries I still have in my fridge from last summer AND a great way to get yogurt into my husband! Thanks!

  2. I will be making this, oh yes, I will.

  3. Yes it was very yummy in the strawberry…I have some blueberries in the freezer I want to use up but am afraid of what my teeth will look like after I eat it :-)

  4. I’m a little disappointed to see all that sugar on a site like this! 1/4 cup sugar with 2 cups of fruit? Just seems like a lot for a healthy treat! I’ve made similar sorbet with no added sugar and it is delish as is, sans sugar! Esp with some bananas…..Even just frozen bananas + water or coconut milk blended is great with no added sugar. Would love to see some healthy/no sugar recipes! Thank you for the inspiration though to try some sorbets with other fruit options. Num!

      @Sue, All of us here at NLM come from different nutritional standpoints. :-) And the sugar mentioned is ‘to taste’ so can definitely be reduced or completely eliminated as well!

      Don’t worry – as a brand new blog we’ve had very little time yet to post a lot of our recipes – more are coming!

      Thanks for commenting. :-)

  5. Being in the southern US, frozen treats are a summer favorite. Don’t get me wrong – I love my fruit fresh off the vine/tree/bush, but puree & freeze it on a hot day in August – ahhh!

  6. This sounds like an excellent summer treat! I am a lime addict, so will be trying it with lime!
