Small Batch Strawberry Sherbet – The Recipe Bandit


Here are the best information about Strawberry sherbet ice cream voted by readers and compiled and edited by our team, let’s find out

This simple four ingredient recipe transforms a pint of fresh summer strawberries into a deliciously light and refreshing dessert without leftovers!

I love my ice cream maker but I don’t use it as often as I should. One of the reasons for this is because we happily eat whatever I make on the day that I make it but whatever we have left over has a tendency to get forgotten in the freezer. This recipe makes just enough for four servings and it is absolutely delicious. This Small Batch Strawberry Sherbet is lighter than ice cream, bursting with flavor, and makes exactly the right amount!

Ingredients and Variations

STRAWBERRIES – 1 pint of strawberries is used in this recipe but I have used 2 1/2 cups of raspberries instead with fantastic results. With raspberries, you really need to strain out the seeds. With strawberries, you can choose to strain the seeds or not. You could also use peaches (remove the skin and cut into chunks) or blueberries, processed and then strained to remove the skins.

MILK – I use 2% because that is usually what I have in my refrigerator and it comes out a really nice consistency. You could use skim milk, 1% milk or whole milk just as easily but the sherbet will not be as creamy and will freeze harder because the increased milk fat helps to keep it soft. Using half & half or heavy cream will make the sherbet richer and more like ice cream but can totally be done!

SUGAR – I use regular white granulated sugar in this recipe but you can substitute 3/4 cup honey if you prefer.

LEMON JUICE – Don’t skip this. You need it. The acidity really makes the flavor amazing. You can use fresh lemon juice or bottled, either is fine!
