Strawberry Sorbet

Sorbet is a frozen fruit dessert typically made with sugar (or honey) and a fruit puree. The dessert's name is derived from 'sherbet', a cooled drink served widely in the Middle East. It is made like ice cream and gelato, by slowly freezing down the ingredients while churning them constantly to create a dense and consistent texture. Unlike gelato, sorbet is vegan and it tends to be slightly softer.

Sweet sorbets are often served as a dessert, or as a refreshment in summer. Any type of fruit can be pureed for sorbet and it can also be made with flavours like chocolate, coffee, and nuts.


1 cup sugar
4 cups rinsed and hulled whole strawberries
1¼ cups water
2 Tbsp orange juice

Cooking Instructions

  • In a small saucepan, combine the sugar and the water and bring to the boil over a medium heat, whisking continuously.
  • Reduce the heat and simmer for 2 to 3 minutes, or until reduced by a quarter. Remove from the heat and cool.
  • In a blender, combine the strawberries and the orange juice until smooth, then press through a fine sieve.
  • In a large bowl, combine the fruit puree with the sugar mixture. Cover and freeze until set.
  • Whisk until smooth, freeze for an additional hour, and whisk again. Repeat twice more.
  • Garnish with fresh mint and serve whilst creamy.
