4 Ingredient Homemade Strawberry Sorbet (Vegan, Paleo, Dairy Free, Gluten Free)
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:
- made of just 4 ingredients (in case you missed the memo) 😉
- exceptionally easy to make
- vegan, dairy free, gluten free and paleo
- awesome for making you feel better about your “mistakes”
- refreshing, creamy and packed with strawberry flavor

Whip up a nice, cool batch of this 4 ingredient homemade strawberry sorbet. And I do mean that literally… eh, you need to whip this once an hour. 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.
Sending you all my love and refreshing fruity strawberries. xo

Have you ever had a mistake turn into something good?
I can’t wait to hear your responses.
Just wondering if you know what i could exchange the coconut for that is still healthy? We have a couple of people in our family allergic to coconut. Can’t wait to try it!
Hi Steph! Hmm, I’m not sure. Maybe try dairy-free yogurt? 🙂
So I’m finally making this today, Demeter, lol. But it’s going to be a little different because everyone is eating my ingredients! So the bananas are in the freezer, I have to use frozen blueberries instead of strawberries because everyone ate the fresh strawberries and they drank my coconut milk so I’m using almond! Should be interesting – I’ll let you know what happens!
YAY!!! I’m so excited! But not about everyone eating all of your ingredients. Goodness gracious! Lol. Sounds like you have a house-full of people that may or may not belong to my family. Haha. Also, shoot… I don’t know how it’s gonna work out with you replacing the light coconut milk for almond milk. The lite coconut milk has a nice, thick layer of creamy and delicious coconut fat that makes this sorbet so yummy. Not totally sure how almond milk will replace that. Let me know how it turns out! 🙂
I love when you “mess up” and come up with such deliciousness. This sorbet was definitely meant to be! Because bananas, strawberries and coconut are meant to be together <3
As usual, I love that this treat is healthy, creamy and so easy to make. Plus only 4 ingredients, so good! Pinned of course 😉
It’s so satisfying when you do. Kinda like a freebie from the universe. 😉 Right? That combo of ingredients is just a match made in heaven. <3 Thanks for pinning and stopping by, my friend! 🙂
Sometimes our “mess ups” turn out to be the most delicious and perfect treats. Like this pretty pink sorbet 🙂 also, if you see a job listing for an ice cream/sorbet tester – hook a girl up! That’s a dream job for you!!
Exactly! Funny how that is. 😉 I will SO hook a girl up–maybe even with some BIG buckets of ice cream! 😉
Note from Demeter: (in strong deep voice –>) Don’t mess with the laws of food science! You’ll end up with delicious strawberry sorbet in your hands 😀 haha That doesn’t sound so bad. I could live with that! 😀 Glad you had fun and you kicking with your frozen treats this summer you know 😉 Love it! Have a great weekend friend!
Lolol. Who knew my voice could get THAT deep? Hahaha. You know, I may or may not have a variety of voices up my sleeve. 😉 Thank you, Natalie! I hope you have a wonderful weekend too!
We were in a strawberry mood together, this week! I’ve made granita but never sorbet and this looks delicious! I love the close-up of the scoop! Your pictures and stories just make me happy! But you knew that!! Have a great weekend, my friend! xo
Here’s to ALL the strawberry recipes in the world! Do you think we can make them all before the end of this century? 😉 Granita, and especially your gorgeous ice cream, sound delicious! Thank you, my friend. It truly means a lot to me. <3 Have a great weekend to, my dear! xo
I hate/I love when things don’t turn out like I expect. So many times I’ve been disappointed when things didn’t go like I thought they would, but usually I’m pleased with the result anyway. This sorbet looks so yummy and delicious!
I definitely remember you having some true winners that were the result of unexpected kitchen experiments. Isn’t that the best? When it works out, it makes everything worth it. 🙂 Thank you, Megan! <3
Haha – Demeter, I am a visual person and I’m sitting on the floor trying to pick myself up off it after I fell out of my chair having pictured you kicking yourself multiple times, then turning in a circle to try to kick yourself better! 🙂
I love how “snafus” can turn into “brilliance!” though your “snafu” that lead to this “brilliance” sounds just as “deliciously fruity refreshing!” And, here I was thinking I had no competition trying to vie for a job as a blog taste tester – and then I find out you are Erik are running for my job?!?! GAH!!! Alls I’ll say is even the taste tester’s (whose supposed snafu- recipes are sheer brilliance) need taste testers too – and that’s where you find moi! 🙂
Have a lovely weekend friend – I hate that I will be missing your “deliciously fruity refreshing” posts next week – but will catch ya soon! XO
Lolol. It was quite the sight, let me tell you! I may or may not be known for doing *some* zany things. But if we can’t have a bit of fun in life, then what’s the point, right? 😉 Blog taste tester: LOLOLOL. Oh, Shashi, you always crack me up! Maybe we can just test for each other? 😉 Aw, your presence will certainly be missed. But go have LOADS of fun with your daughter–I’ll be right here when you get back. 😉 Sending you lots of love. xoxo
