4 Ingredient Homemade Strawberry Sorbet (V+GF): an easy recipe for deliciously creamy and refreshing strawberry sorbet. Vegan, Dairy-Free, Paleo, Gluten-Free.
Sometimes the coolest things happen when you stop trying. Or when you kinda sorta failed and go, “to heck with it!”, throw out the rule book and decide to just have some fun.
Remember fun? I always ask Erik this question and remind myself of the same. Anyway, it was just a few weeks ago that I was testing a recipe for Strawberry Coconut Popsicles and Strawberry Coconut Milkshake. It was all strawberries, all the time. And who wouldn’t want that? 😉
I was trying to defy the laws of food science (or unicorns, or who knows what) and whipping up the leanest possible strawberry coconut milkshake. But. The thing is, milkshakes aren’t supposed to be lean. Note to self: don’t just forget about fun, remember reason too! *Blushing* Needless to say, but I’m gonna say it anyway, I ended up making a trial run of milkshakes that didn’t have enough delicious coconut fat and had too many strawberries.
As for my second “but” of the day: But, the frozen strawberry mixture that I made was so unbelievably good. It tasted lightly creamy, but super refreshing fruity. Huh… refreshing fruity. I like the sound of that. Do you?
So after kicking myself multiple times, then turning in a circle to try to kick myself better, then looking like a perfect dork, I decided, to heck with it! Now that I’m dizzy and I’ve got nothing to lose, let’s pour this strawberry sweetness into a bucket and freeze it! Oh YES.
And guess what? I had fun. And I made strawberry sorbet. Wait a minute, I made 4 ingredient Homemade Strawberry Sorbet. Even better.
Mayhaps a little circle-spinning, “messing up,” and loosening of the reins is a good thing. Don’t you think?
I poured that deliciously fruity refreshing (yep, this is a thing now), would-be 4 ingredient homemade strawberry sorbet mixture into a bucket (this is as glamorous as it sounds). I checked on it every hour, gave it a sassy stir, then did a few more circle spins for good measure. Then, voilà, a few hours later, Erik and I were scooping this sorbet awesomeness into ice cream cones like it was our job.
Btw, if anyone’s looking for an extremely professional ice cream/sorbet scooper and taste tester, I might know of somebody. Or two somebodies. Ahem. Uh, we promise not to eat all of the frozen treats.
Yeah, right. 😉
I also know of someone who is fantastically amazing at creating the most delicious fruit-sweetened treats. Meet my friend Natalie from Feasting on Fruit. Well, you know how I love creating secretly healthy sweet treats? Natalie is like my recipe soulmate. ❤ She makes the most incredible desserts and more. I’ve been fantasizing about her Strawberry Cupcake Milkshake since forever. And if you think it sounds good, wait til you see the pictures and you’ll just pass out. 😉
So now that it’s blissful summer, and now that you feel so much better about being waaaay cooler than me, I invite you to just breathe. To enjoy some time for yourself. Sometimes mess-ups can turn into the most delicious of things. And sometimes even the happiest. And and, if you still feel like you just can’t resist being hard on yourself and you need a reminder to go easier, read this.
In the mean time, let me tell you all about this refreshing treat. My 4 Ingredient Homemade Strawberry Sorbet is:

Just sayin’. 😉 Then, call up some friends, and plan that movie + snacks night that you’ve been putting off. You bring the strawberry sorbet, and they’ll bring the movies and nachos. Heck, plan that spa weekend you’ve been meaning to treat yourself to. If not now, when? 🙂 You deserve it.
