3 Ingredient Fresh Strawberry Sorbet

The most perfect, simple, 3 ingredient strawberry sorbet. Sweet, refreshing, tart and creamy, this recipe will not disappoint you and will keep you from ever buying it again.

This summer we have seen an amazing crop of strawberries. In a household where almost everyone disagrees about what to eat on a daily basis, strawberries are one of the few universally loved foods. My local supermarkets have been selling one pound clamshells of organic ones for 1.99/lb. At that price we have been gorging ourselves on them and I have been making a ton of baby food with them for our youngest. With such an abundant bounty I’ve been looking for ways to keep the strawberry season going for us well into the fall.

There are so many ways to store strawberries. I’ve never been a fan of freezing whole strawberries, they always look so sad when they defrost and we almost never have smoothies in our house. I don’t own a dehydrator and had a total Pinterest fail when I tried to make strawberry fruit roll ups. So aside from making some delicious strawberry jalapeno jam (it is a close second to my favorite cherry jalapeno jam) I’ve made strawberry sauce and I’ve begun experimenting with strawberry bbq sauce (total fails so far). So what else can I do?

I made strawberry sorbet. The most perfect, simple, 3 ingredient strawberry sorbet. This recipe has been a favorite of mine for years. I make so many variations of this base recipe that it actually makes me want so badly to write them all out for you here. But I should take one step at a time. Make this delicious recipe first, then we can talk about mix-ins, added flavors, etc.

Put the ingredients into a food processor and process until smooth. Refrigerate for an hour, or put in the freezer for 30 minutes, this helps the ice cream maker tremendously. The most perfect, simple, 3 ingredient strawberry sorbet. Sweet, refreshing, tart and creamy, this recipe will not disappoint you and will keep you from ever buying it again.
Freeze in a gelato or ice cream maker per machine’s directions. Try not to overfill the machine. Look at my level of it unfrozen. Once frozen it was full to the top: The most perfect, simple, 3 ingredient strawberry sorbet.

Because this recipe is so short I thought I would be playful and take an 80’s inspired shot… The most perfect, simple, 3 ingredient strawberry sorbet. Sweet, refreshing, tart and creamy, this recipe will not disappoint you and will keep you from ever buying it again.Ok one more thing I wanted to share! And probably the most important reason I made this recipe in its purest form. Here is a sneak peek to a post next week… This is where some of the delicious strawberry sorbet ended up! In a 100% homemade 100% nostalgic Strawberry Shortcake Ice Cream Bar!! It tastes EXACTLY like the original, but with no packaged cookies in the mix.  (My oldest just came up behind me, pointed at the shot of the sorbet and said “yummy mommy I want shobbies.” I love toddlers.Strawberry Shortcake

  1. This is too easy! I never knew it was so easy,lol. I will be going to pick up some strawberries today for sure! My kids are going to be so excited when they see this sorbet!

  2. Thank you so much for the wonderful fresh strawberry sorbet recipe. I like making healthy treats that make the family happy.

  3. This looks so good. I love making fresh fruit sorbet or homemade ice cream. We use bananas or avocados as the base. Just whole food and a food processor.

  4. Mmm! I love sorbet and even more, love that this is homemade. You know it doesn’t have junk in it like the store bought varieties do!

  5. That sounds like the perfect summer treat. My kids went strawberry picking over the summer, and now they are so excited about growing their own.

  6. i see all these easy ice cream and sorbet recipes and i wonder why i still don’t have an ice cream maker!

  7. Ok, I have seen a PILE Of your ice cream/sorbet desserts and am thinking i SERIOUSLY Need to invest in a machine. I also love the freshness of the strawberries and then making it more of an adult dessert with the rose! Very creative!

  8. Wow, the color on the sorbet is so vibrant! You can’t go wrong with 3 easy and simple ingredients

  9. Wow, three ingredients? That is so super-awesome. I tell you, I have tried making something like this before but it didn’t go so well… I will be trying this. Thanks for sharing.

    1. I hope this one is a hit for you! Something that works really well for me is to put the sugar in the food processor with the strawberries. I find it makes it smooth instead of grainy rather than combining the ingredients after pureeing the strawberries.

  10. Oh how I adore Sorbet! And my kids have been begging for a strawberry Dessert! this would be perfect! Refreshing and cooling at the same time. Perfect for summer!

  11. This strawberry sorbet looks so good! I love that it’s only 3 ingredients! 🙂

  12. Mmmm this looks so delicious. I will have to try this for my get together on the weekend.

  13. I have never tried making anything like this. I am excited to try it. I am sure it will be a big hit.

  14. My mouth is seriously watering Sabrina! The strawberry sorbet looks great on its own but the shortcake ice cream was a my go-to treat from the ice cream man as a kid.

    1. Marcie, I can’t wait until that post goes live!! I have been rationing them out so I can keep eating them. I didn’t even let my husband have any as his memory of the original was “just ok.” That doesn’t get one of the bars! Haha.

  15. this looks absolutely delicious! I’m going to have to give this a try with the boys. I know they would love it.

  16. This is so much simpler than I expected! I’d really like to start making my own frozen treats with fresh fruit like this.

  17. I love how organic this recipe is, so simple- I bet it tastes just wonderful. We like to make fresh ice cream and sorbet often during the Summer.

    1. You know with flavors as bright and rich as a summer strawberry it just doesn’t need a lot to make it amazing. I probably could’ve even cut the sugar to 2 tablespoons if my toddler wasn’t eating it too.

  18. I love how simple the ingredients are! Definitely allergy friendly and safe for my family to enjoy! Thanks for sharing.

  19. I just love anything with strawberries in it. This looks so refreshing for a hot summer day!

  20. Holy smokes does this look delicious! I don’t have an ice cream maker, but if I did I would make some!

  21. I’ve made a lot of home made ice cream, but I’ve never thought of making sorbet before. I can’t wait to give it a shot. Yum!

  22. I love this raspberry sorbet from the supermarket. I would try this recipe though because it is so simple. I have pinned it.

    1. Thanks for pinning it! If you substitute raspberries you are going to need three half pints, but the flavors are AMAZING. I also do it with blackberries (also three half pints)

  23. Strawberries are a huge hit in our house too, which is funny since it took forever to get my son to try them!

  24. That looks so cool and tasty. As hot as it is outside, that would make a great treat to cool off with.

    1. Oh yes!! Also raspberry with zinfandel and blackberries with cabernet. Blueberry with moscato and one time we even did strawberry with champagne for a New Year’s Eve dinner party!

  25. Now I want an ice cream maker just so I can make this! I am lactose intolerant so this would be something I could easily enjoy!

    1. Yes! Also, if you wanted to add coconut milk for it, that would make the best tropical treat ever!

  26. There is no better dessert than fresh fruit sorbet in the summer! Love this recipe so much.

  27. Just read that strawberries are the most important thing to buy organic because they are so porous. Going to try that sorbet here.

    1. Yes! I go back and forth about which fruits and vegetables to buy organic, but I buy strawberries organic unless I am in a pinch and I can’t find any. I hope you love the sorbet!
