No ice cream maker needed for this creamy, dreamy strawberry peach sorbet!
I’m going to go on record right here and say it: I am anti-ice cream maker. There’s something about making the custard (terrifying enough) and making sure the ice cream maker insert is frozen enough, and going through all the churning and never knowing for sure if you are going to end up with ice cream or a really sweet-tasting soup that makes me want to bolt for the nearest Dairy Queen.
But sorbet that you can make in your food processor in 10 minutes flat? Sorbet made of fresh strawberries and peaches? Sorbet that comes out perfectly every single time? Yup, I’m going to go on record right here and say I’m in.
You only need three ingredients for this sorbet. First, three of these babies.
Peel, pit and slice them up. You also need a pint of these:
Strawberries are obviously a key ingredient in this recipe, and here’s a handy guide to everything you need to know about buying, storing and prepping these delicious fruits.
Hull them and slice them in half. And if you want to know the world’s fastest, easiest way to hull strawberries, check out my recipe for Strawberry Lemonade. It will rock your strawberry world.
Now lay all the fruit on a cookie sheet lined with nonstick foil and freeze them up. I like to prep the fruit one day and make the sorbet the next. You can also transfer the frozen fruit to a plastic freezer bag and just keep it on hand for whenever you get a sorbet craving.
When that craving hits, put the fruit along with 1/4 cup of sugar into your handy dandy food processor and turn it on. Cover your ears, because the first minute or two is going to be LOUD. Process for about 5-6 minutes – you should stop the processor once or twice to scrape down the sides.
And that, my friends, is it! You will have a lovely, creamy, soft sorbet! If you like your sorbet a little firmer, put it in a bowl and pop it in the freezer for an hour or two. Peach strawberry sorbet heaven, and exactly no ice cream maker required!Print
