Strawberry Lime Sorbet

I will apologize in advance for another ice cream-y post, and for the third sweets post in a row. What can I say? I have a major sweet tooth. And it certainly wasn't helped by my new ice cream maker! I have already made two batches of ice cream, and wanted to try something different. I decided I'd try sorbet. I always buy sorbet at the grocery store...and it is $4-something for a tiny little carton that Mr. Z and I sometimes (ok, more like always!) eat in one sitting.

This recipe makes a lot more than one of those little puny cartons I get at the grocery store, and was much, much better tasting. I bought the ingredients for this sorbet for about the same price as one carton of the Häagen-Dazs stuff. I would definitely like to make this recipe again, although I'll probably try lots of other new recipes before repeating any.

Strawberry Lime Sorbet
from Cook Like a Champion, written as I made it


1 lime, peeled and roughly chopped
2 c. sugar
2 lb. strawberries (I used thawed frozen strawberries)
2 tbsp. lime juice, or more to taste

Put lime and sugar in a food processor and pulse until well combined. Transfer to a mixing bowl and set aside. Put strawberries in the food processor and pulse. Add strawberries and lime juice to the lime/sugar mixture.

Mix with hand blender until mixed. Pour in ice cream maker, and freeze according to ice cream maker directions (mine was about 25-30 minutes), until desired consistency. Transfer to another container and put it in the freezer to harden even more.


  1. I'm glad you liked it! We still have some left in the freezer, but I imagine it won't last much longer. It's so tasty!

  2. I think I need an ice cream maker! That looks so refreshing and delicious.

  3. Courtney, ours is already long gone! :-)

    And, I do believe everyone should have an ice cream maker! I definitely didn't know what I was missing out on!
