1/1 Photo of Alea's Strawberry Sorbet
As a mom, I love sorbet. It is lower in sugar than ice-cream and my kids are getting a healthy dose of fruit on their ice-cream cone. However, the frugalista in me winces every time I look at the price of a pinto container of sorbet. This recipe is an easy and frugal alternative to store-bought sorbet. When I buy strawberries on sale, I can make twice as much sorbet, for half the price of packaged sorbet. When I use strawberries from my garden, it costs pennies per serving. When I make strawberry sorbet, I do not put the pureed fruit through a sieve to remove the seeds. If you have a child who is very sensitive to texture, put a bowl under a sieve and push pureed berries through sieve with a spatula to remove the seeds. I use an ice-cream maker to process the sorbet, but if you don't have an ice-cream maker you can still enjoy this tasty treat by dividing the strawberry mixture between popsicle containers and freeze. They will be the tastiest popsicles ever. You can use fresh or frozen strawberries. If you use frozen strawberries. If you use frozen strawberries, allow them to thaw in the refrigerator before using. It doesn't take much active time to prepare the sorbet, but the strawberry mixture does need to cool in the refrigerator and then the sorbet requires several hours in the freezer to harden. If your kids cannot wait for it to harden, you can cheat and give them a "soft-serve" sorbet cone.
