Sarah’s Strawberry Sorbet

on September 4, 2012

We went for a quick overnight getaway this weekend.  I packed a cooler of snacks (hard boiled eggs, cut up fruit, salami, Black Forest ham, nuts, etc.) and water to help us get to our destination, Monterey.  It was a good thing I did because our trip took us twice as long due to Labor Day weekend traffic.  After visiting the aquarium, we headed for a hotel and started talking about dinner.  My husband and kids decided they wanted “real pizza” and nachos, while I decided on a BLTA salad.  After dinner, we all wanted something sweet and headed to the hotel’s restaraunt.  The boys went with a chocolate lava cake with vanilla ice cream, while the girls ordered mango sorbet.  Sarah loved it and asked if we could make some at home.  I decided it was a perfect “treat” for at home and was something she could make on her own.

Today, we gathered the ingredients (which I had already at home) and dusted off the ice cream maker.  Sarah made the recipe on her own with a little guidance. Everyone loved it….even my son who HATES coconut!

Ingredients:

16 oz. strawberries, washed and chopped up

1 cup full fat coconut milk

1 lime, juiced

2 Tb. Big Tree Farms Sweet Tree Vanilla Coconut Palm Sugar (I got mine at Whole Foods.)

2 1/2 Tb. raw honey

splash of vodka if you are storing in freezer

What to do…

  1. Wash, cut off stems and chop up strawberries.
  2. Put all ingredients into a food processor.  Blend until smooth.  You may need to stop and use a spatula to scrap sides and continue to blend.
  3. Once smooth, pour into ice cream maker.  Make sure your bowl is nice and cold!
  4. Sorbet will take between 15-20 minutes.
  5. Serve immediately or transfer to a bowl and store in freezer until ready to eat.

We are thinking about different combinations we can make and are looking forward to trying different variations of sorbets.  Watch for recipes to come!
