Springtime Strawberry Sorbet

Strawberry Puree

This is a super-simple sorbet recipe that packs a big fruity flavor punch. Drizzle some warm chocolate sauce on top and you have a refreshingly  satisfying dessert. Credit for the original recipe goes to @DavidLebovitz and his book “The Perfect Scoop.”


2 punnets of strawberries

1/4 cup sugar

1 tspn lemon juice

1 tspn vodka – alcohol is optional but helps to alter the freezing level and iciness of the sorbet.

pinch of salt


Let the sliced washed berries macerate with the sugar in a bowl for an hour.  Then toss the berries and the puddle of juices into your blender. Add the lemon juice and the teaspoon of vodka and pinch of salt, and process until its completely smooth.

Chill the strawberry puree in the fridge for a minimum of an hour, then churn it in your ice cream maker until its a frozen slushy consistency. Store in freezer to harden.

Ready for the freezer...
