Whether I actually go strawberry picking or just buy them fresh from the grocery, one thing I love about spring and summer is how sweet the strawberries are. I find myself trying to incorporate strawberries into just about everything - jams, salads, shortcakes, sorbets!  To me, nothing beats a fresh strawberry plain, directly from the stem, but this recipe here might come close! 

Summer nights just got a whole lot better thanks to this refreshing treat. Fresh strawberries give it a sweet foundation, yet the white wine and lime juice enhance the sorbet and ensure the final product doesn't turn out too sweet. This "grown-up" treat is perfect to serve at your next get together. 

Want to make this strawberry sorbet kid-friendly? Just sub the wine for white grape juice and you have a treat the entire family can enjoy!

  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1⁄4 cup chopped strawberries

Method

  1. Set aside 1/4 cup chopped strawberries. Blend remaining ingredients together in a blender or food processor.  After mixture is blended, fold in chopped strawberries.
  2. If using an ice cream maker, let mixture cool completely before churning according to manufacturer's instructions.
  3. If not using an ice cream maker, place mixture into the freezer for 4-6 hours or until frozen to desired consistency.
