Strawberry-Banana Sorbet

by Laura

Today’s cool treat is all about fruit.  We are making a sorbet.  According to Wikipedia, a sorbet is a frozen dessert made of sweetened water flavored with fruit, wine or liqueur.  I went for fruit, more specifically strawberries and bananas.  They are a combination that goes so well together.
Now you don’t have to make this in an ice cream maker.  You can just freeze it in a container.  I do enjoy it in my ice cream maker which makes this nice, thick, and icy in about 20 minutes.  It’s another refreshing way to beat the heat and cool off.  My two youngest kids are pretty picky both of them downed their serving in no time.  My son even told me how much he liked it.  I about fell over in shock.  We were lucky he even gave it a taste, that’s how picky he can be.

Strawberry-Banana Sorbet

  • 2 cups diced fresh strawberries, divided
  • 2 very ripe bananas
  • 1/2 cup cold water
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  1. Set aside 1/2 cup of the diced strawberries for later.  Place the remaining 1 1/2 cups strawberries and remaining ingredients in a blender or food processor.  Process until smooth.
  2. Pour mixture into your ice cream maker or freezer container.  If using your ice cream maker, freeze according to manufacturers instructions.  I did this in my 1 1/2 qt Cuisinart and it worked perfectly. It takes about 20 minutes to freeze.  Serve immediately and top each serving with some of the reserved fresh strawberries.
  3. If using a freezer container, add the remaining diced strawberries to the mix.  This will give you some nice pieces of berries in your sorbet.  You will need to freeze it for about 2 hours to get it thick enough.  Give it a stir a few times during the two hours.

Made this last night and LOVED it! My whole picky family loved it. We can never eat the frozen desserts because of all of our food allergies, but we all ate (and loved) this one. Thank you! Pinned it to my Recipes board on Pinterest and shared it on Facebook too.
THANK YOU!

Could you use frozen strawberries?

You can, I would just recommend that you thaw them before using.

Sounds yummy! My husband has been trying to get me to get our ice cream maker out, it sounds like we have the same Cuisinart.
