Strawberry Sorbet (Two-Ways)

  • RECIPE MAKES: Approx. 1L of sorbet (6 serves)
  • PREP TIME: 10 min
  • COOK TIME: 4-6 hrs (method dependent)
  • THIS RECIPE IS PROTEIN FREE

This Strawberry Sorbet includes just a few ingredients and is incredibly simple to make. We have given two ways of making it – either by freezing, or by churning. The first is an icy sorbet, whilst the second, using an ice-cream maker, is smooth. Whichever way you choose, you’ll end up with an intensely - flavoured striking dessert that everyone will love.

Simple Freezer Sorbet

step 1

Combine water and sugar in a medium-sized saucepan. Bring to boil over medium heat, stirring to dissolve sugar. Reduce heat, simmer 5min. Remove syrup from heat, pour into a bowl, and place in refrigerator to cool.  

step 2

Place strawberries into a food processor and blend until smooth. Add cooled syrup, and lemon juice, and pulse briefly, to just combine.  Place mixture into a shallow 20cm x 20cm pan. Place into freezer. After 2hr, stir, and bring frozen edges to the centre. Return to freezer.

step 3

Continue to stir every hour, until sorbet is as firm as desired (minimum time approx. 4hr). Once sorbet is entirely icy (like a slushy drink), puree in blender/food processor, place in a bowl and return to freezer.  

step 4

Sorbet should be ready to serve between 4-6hr, after first placing into freezer. Once ready to serve, remove from freezer, let stand 5-10min, then scoop into dishes. 

Churned Sorbet

step 1

Combine water and sugar in a medium-sized saucepan. Bring to boil over medium heat, stirring to dissolve sugar. Reduce heat, simmer 5min. Remove syrup from heat, pour into a bowl, and place in refrigerator to cool. 

step 2

Place strawberries into a food processor and blend until pureed. Press puree through a fine mesh strainer, to remove seeds. Spoon blended strawberries into a bowl, add cooled sugar syrup and glucose syrup. Chill in refrigerator 1hr., until cold.

step 3

Churn sorbet mixture according to manufacturer’s directions for your ice-cream maker.

The finished sorbet will be fairly soft, firm it in the freezer for 1-2hr., if desired.
