Sweet and Silky Strawberry Sorbet

Sharing is caring!

Sweet, soft strawberry sorbet that will rival any brand bought in the grocery store. Not being able to find the perfect recipe, I made up my own! Most homemade sorbets resemble an icy slushie, but this one is thickened before freezing, yielding a melt-in-your-mouth treat that will please even the pickiest sorbet lover! Dually great because it can be made in an ice cream freezer, or in your regular freezer.


  • 1 pound ripe strawberries, hulled and chopped
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 ½ teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1 ½ teaspoons cold water
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice


Place berries in the work bowl of a food processor and puree until smooth. Combine berry puree, sugar, and salt in a large saucepan. Heat until melted and just simmering. Whisk cornstarch into the cold water; stir into heated berry mixture. Remove from heat, and stir in lemon juice. Cool slightly. Refrigerate berry mixture until cold, about 2 hours.

Freeze in ice cream maker according to manufacturer’s instructions.
