Summer time is equal ice cream time! All kinds of ice cream are amazing but in the summer time a strawberry sorbet can be a great and refreshing alternative to regular ice cream. This sorbet has a wonderful taste and has a strong and natural taste of the fresh strawberries. At the same time this sorbet has the most amazing color which makes it both tasteful and visually beautiful. The portion of sorbet I made was not that large but it can be scaled easily to fit you needs. I made my sorbet using my ice cream maker which is able to make 1 liter of sorbet – But you can also use your freezer. This sorbet has an amazing taste and is perfect for the hot periods and is a healthy alternative to regular ice cream.
