Strawberry Mint Sorbet

strawberry mint sorbet recipe

With the summer in full swing, icy cold desserts are basically all that I can think of right now. After trying my hand at this strawberry mint sorbet the other day, I now know that it will most probably stay with us as a favorite go to treat for pretty long. It is oh so yummy! And it is is very easy to prepare too. Just have a look…

To make your strawberry mint sorbet you need these simple ingredients: strawberries, mint, lime or lemon and a bit of simple sugar syrup.

1. The simple sugar syrup is just a combination of sugar dissolved in water. That easy! To prepare your simple syrup for this recipe, in a small saucepan, combine 1/3 cup (80 ml) water and 1/3 cup (65 grams) granulated white sugar. Cook over low heat until the sugar dissolves, then boil for 1 minute. Remove from heat and let cool completely.

2. Place the strawberries, mint, lemon/lime juice and simple syrup in a food processor. Process until the fruit is pureed.

4. Transfer the mixture to the chilled container of your ice cream machine and process according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Once made, transfer the sorbet to a chilled container and store in the freezer.

If you don’t have the ice cream machine, that’s no problem at all… just transfer the mixture to a larger freezer-friendly container, cover with plastic wrap and place in the freezer. When the sorbet is completely frozen (3 to 4 hours), remove from freezer and let stand at room temperature until partially thawed. Transfer the partially thawed sorbet to the food processor, and process to break up the large ice crystals that have formed on the sorbet. Place the sorbet back into the pan and refreeze for at least three hours, and up to several days.

Serving is easiest when your sorbet gets partially thawed.
