Yes, I am crazy. I admit it. I’m making sorbet in the fall. This recipe should have been made in the summer, but it never occurred to me that I eat more ice cream, sorbet, and frozen yogurt in the colder months of the year.

Maybe I am just weird like that, or it’s just because I love my frozen treats. Whatever it is, I love strawberry sorbet!

Heck, in our household, summer is practically all year long (regardless of the weather outside)! It can be below zero and guess what? We’re eating ice cream or other frozen confections.

It’s not exactly below zero, or even close to it, but it has been rather chilly outside and I did have some free time about a week or so ago. I went to our local supermarket and was surprised by how fresh and good-looking the strawberries were.

The biggest thing that made me get the strawberries was that they were on sale… What would I do without things being on sale?

After thinking about what to make with the strawberries, I decided that I needed to make sorbet. Sorbet is probably one of the easiest things to make, and it is simply delicious. Of course, I took another challenge and decided to keep that ice cream maker in it’s place.

Yes, this is another recipe without an ice cream maker required (but I have included directions if you do decide to make this in your ice cream maker)!

Sure, an ice cream maker would make this recipe nice and smooth, but for those of you who would rather not make this in an ice cream maker (or if you simply do not have one)- I’ve got an amazing strawberry sorbet recipe for you!

It is relatively one of the easiest things to make and doesn’t require much effort at all for something simply irresistible.

    Hi, new to your site, awesom site. . I’m wondering what I can use to replace the orange juice, I can’t have oranges/juice? Thanks

      Sue, you can try to use more lemon juice, some lime juice, or even grapefruit juice. If you’re able to have tangerines or something similar to an orange, that would be best, though.
