Ingredients + Tips for Homemade Strawberry Sherbet

Equipment Needed

  • This strawberry sherbet recipe is a fun, easy, and delicious homemade version of a classic frozen treat. For the no-churn version, all you’ll need to make this creamy and fruity dessert is a blender, a large mixing bowl, a hand mixer or whisk, and a 9×5” loaf pan.
  • Of course, if you have an ice cream maker (this is the one I have) Just add the mixture to your ice cream maker and follow the manufacturer’s instructions.

How to Make No-Churn Strawberry Sherbet

4.Once your mixture is uniform and a bit thick, transfer it to your 9×5” loaf pan and cover it with a layer of plastic wrap.

5.Allow your strawberry sherbet to set in the freezer for 4-6 hours or until firm. Serve and enjoy!

Recipe Tips

  • Like your sherbet to have a little extra texture? Try folding a few diced strawberries into your sherbet before freezing.
  • Looking to make an airier, more ice-cream-like dessert? Try whipping your cream before folding it into the rest of your ingredients. Your resulting sherbet should be softer and lighter.
  • For best results, let your sherbet freeze for at least 6 hours or overnight.
  • I don’t like strawberry seeds in my sherbet, so I strain the puree through a fine-mesh strainer to make it extra smooth.
