This Sunday has been a major reboot from what most of us can agree was an insane week. Personally, I learned first-hand about the power of social media and news outlets, and was able to share my story with millions this week. That was pretty cool. But this week was also marked by profound grief. As I continue to learn more about the tragedies in Louisiana, Minnesota, and Texas, my heart has been broken and my mind baffled by the stronghold hate and fear still have in our country. I won’t say much more at this point for fear of my words being gratuitous, but I will say this: God is with our country, and love will always win in the end.
Now, let’s talk about strawberries.We’re making sorbet! Fresh, sweet, and a sound note this summer. This recipe really isn’t even a recipe. You’re gonna start with some strawberries (if you want your sorbet right away, you’ll need to freeze them for a few hours first). Pour them in a blender or food processor (no ice cream machine needed!) and add some lemon juice and honey to accentuate that sweet-tart flavor.Blend. Freeze. Scoop. You didn’t really even need this post, did you?
This sorbet tastes like frozen fruit and 100% guilt-free indulgence. Garnish with fresh berries, basil, and a slice of lemon. Sit back and let summer happen.
Three Ingredient Strawberry Sorbet (paleo, vegan, gf)
- 4 cups strawberries (fresh if you’re freezing later, frozen for about 3 hours if you’re wanting to enjoy now. If your berries have been well-frozen, let them thaw a little.)
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon liquid sweetener (like honey, maple syrup, or agave), to taste
Place all ingredients in a blender or food processor. Blend until pureed, then pour into a freezer-safe container and freeze until solid, or enjoy immediately.
