This post was made possible thanks to my friends at Voortman Bakery. I was provided the products to facilitate this review.
Kids are now back at school … Yeahhh!!!! (for moms). This little “extra time” gives us a little more time to get creative in the kitchen, and when you do it gives you time to enjoy it too. Like this super easy Strawberry Sorbet that I prepare this weekend. Super easy, seriously!
With all honesty, I couldn’t enjoy a full ice cream cup nor a scoop by myself without first having it shared with the kids. Fun right? Preparing this strawberry may take some time but you can definitely make plenty for the entire family.
Why is it that when you (as a parent) ask your kids what flavor of ice cream they want they chose their “favorite” but, is always mom’s ice cream the one that tastes better…?
Now that I have the time and we all love strawberries and tried this strawberry sorbet recipe. It’s easy and no one needs to fight for the biggest scoop or the cup that taste the best, also I don’t have to worry about extra sugar or fake ingredients and I love to pair this sorbet with the banana wafers from Voortman Bakery. It tastes just like strawberry, banana smoothie 🙂 REFRESHING!
This Strawberry sorbet recipe is pretty simple:
- 2 lbs of fresh strawberries.
- 1-3 Tbs agave nectar, depending on how sweet you like it &
- Slice up 1/2 of the strawberries into large pieces, place them on a baking sheet, and put them in the freezer for a few hours until they are hard but not completely frozen.
- Take the other half of the berries and put them in a medium-sized pot, along with 2 or 3tbs of agave and 2 cups of water.
- Simmer this mixture over medium heat for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Remove the mixture from the heat and let cool completely.
- Then, put the frozen strawberries and the cooled mixture in the blender and blend for 3-4 minutes on high or until creamy.
- Pour into a freezer-safe container and freeze overnight.
Ready to enjoy this sorbet? Set it out on the counter for about 10 minutes to soften a little before serving. Enjoy with Banana wafers on the side. Yummmmmm
