Strawberry Lemonade Sorbet

6:00:00 AM

I love making frozen treats from scratch!! I've made popsicles, ice cream, and now...sorbet! And guess what: I don't use any special tools - no ice cream maker! This strawberry lemonade sorbet is the perfect blend of sour and sweet - perfectly refreshing on a hot day without weighing you down!

I love lemons...but my kiddos and husband can't handle too much tart/sour flavors. So I came up with this dessert that is perfect this time of year when strawberries are in season!

Here's how you make it:

2 cups sugar
1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (I used 1 lb of lemons to get this amount of juice)
2 tablespoons freshly grated lemon zest

1 3/4 cups water 
12 oz. (by weight) strawberries

In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine the water and sugar. Stir and boil until the sugar dissolves, about 1 minute. Remove from heat and allow to cool. While the syrup cools, hull the strawberries and then puree them in a food processor. Stir in the strawberry puree, lemon juice and lemon zest, then pour into a metal loaf pan or other similar freezer proof container. 

Place in freezer. Stir every 30 minutes for at least 3 hours. Cover. The sorbet will solidify in the freezer.
Makes 2 pints.
