Real Food: Strawberry Sorbet

smooooothie-258409-m“Strawberries are the angels of the earth, innocent and sweet with green leafy wings reaching heavenward.” — Terri Guillemets

Today is a sad day for me. My local strawberry u-pick had it’s last day of picking. The only thing that keeps me from full on pouting about it is that I know strawberry season will come again. I just have to wait for the earth to circle the sun one more time and I will be gorging myself silly snacking on those delicious berries once again.

Thankfully I did make it out to the field today and picked 10 pounds of dark red, juicy and perfectly ripe berries. But what to do with these precious last berries of the season?

Since it is very hot here today, I decided to make sorbet. I love this stuff more than I can say. Sweet, refreshing, and cooling for the summer months. Above all, this is a dessert that beautifully highlights the intense flavor that freshly picked strawberries have. You just cannot purchase berries that taste this good in a store.

As a plus, this recipe uses no refined sugar but substitutes local raw honey. Notice also, the recipe contains a mere 3 ingredients. Easy peasy!


  • 12 oz fresh strawberries (or frozen)
  • 2 cups fresh filtered water
  • ¼ cup local raw honey


  1. Put all ingredients into a blender and blend on high for 2 minutes.
  2. Place in ice cream machine according to the manufacturers instructions.
