Strawberry sorbet is simply the perfect spring dessert. During this season, after long months of waiting, we’re finally lucky enough to taste again this amazing berry!
The recipe is very easy, it just takes 15 minutes of preparation and half an hour to churn it in the ice-cream machine. The greatest thing ever is that you can do it easily even without any machine, you just need a freezer.
Amazing right? I’m going to explain both methods below.
Are you ready sweet tooth? Let’s do this!
ready in a jiffy
- 1 kg of strawberries
- 300 gr icinig sugar
- Orange juice
- Lemon juice
Wash the strawberries, remove the stalks and cut them in small pieces. Usually I cut a strawberry in 4 pieces.
Now that you’ve cut your strawberries, put them in a bowl and then switch on the blender and make a killing! Have fun! ;)
Once you’ve finished your little revenge on the strawberries you’ll have a thick red juice (it’s less creepy than it sounds, I swear). Now you can add the icing sugar a little at a time. Believe me, don’t rush this step or you’re gonna find yourself like a kind of modern version of Casper, the friendly ghost.
Squeeze half a lemon and add it to the bowl. Yes, it’s gonna hurt your little wounds, you my little nervous friend.
Squeeze half an orange and add it as well.
Now, mix it altogether with the blender and pour it in the bucket of your ice-cream machine. Then select the program for the sorbet, that usually is different from the ice-cream one and just wait until is ready!
When the ice-cream will be ready don’t start to eat it immediately — WHAAT?
Leave the ice-cream in the freezer for 1 hour before tasting it, if you can resist ;)
PS: don’t forget to add the perfect topping for chocolate: whipped cream — of course!
If you don’t have an ice-cream machine, that’s perfectly fine. You can still make a super tasty sorbet.
When you finished mixing all the ingredients as explained above, you can now pour your mixture in a food container with a cover. Put it in a freezer for 2 hours in total and every 20 minutes move the mixture with a spoon.
At the end of this process you’ll come with a very creamy strawberry sorbet. Buonissimo!
