Did you try my Sugar Free Orange Sorbet ?
That orange sorbet features fresh orange juice that brings its own natural sugar to a tasty dessert.
This recipe is similar but, it is sweetened with the natural sugar from strawberries.
While I am using a no churn recipe that calls for a food processor or blender, you could use a sorbet maker instead. You can find sorbet makers at decent prices here.
People often ask does sorbet need sugar.
Traditional sorbet often uses sugar to make a syrup when heated on the stove.
The syrup acts as both a sweetener and to keep the texture and the sorbet from freezing as a solid.
Thankfully, there are other ways to add flavor to sorbet while preventing it from becoming frozen solid.
We are adding lemon juice to help keep the the texture of the sorbet.
And for sweetening, or balancing out the flavor, we are using sugar alternative.
What makes a sorbet a sorbet and not a sherbet?
Yes, sorbet and sherbet seem so much alike.
I mean, they are both frozen and both (usually) are made with fruit.
However, there is a difference between sorbet and sherbet.
Sorbet is traditionally made with fruit and sugar with maybe some lemon juice.
Sherbet on the other hand, has a bit of added dairy, making it a bit smoother and less icy.
Here are some tips for making homemade sorbet.
Yes, we are using strawberries to make this sorbet.
However, you really can use about any fruit or even a combination of fruit.
More tips for you.
- You can make this recipe into a sherbet. Simply stir in a half of cup of milk or similar dairy that measure like milk.
- My sorbet was made using a loaf pan similar to what ice cream can be frozen in. You really can use any kind of container to freeze your sorbet in.

How to store homemade sorbet.
This homemade sorbet should be stored in a freezer as airtight as possible to prevent it from getting too icy. If yours does get icy, simply re-process it in your blender.
