Introduction: Strawberry-Lemon Sorbet
Keep cool this summer with this mouth-watering dessert. This refreshing sorbet fits the mood right after a delicious barbeque.
- 14 Strawberries
- 1 Lemon
- 1/6 cup Honey
- Vitamix (with the cold dessert feature)
- Glass Container
- Icecream Scooper
Step 1: Prep the Strawberries
Here is a simple trick to remove the top of strawberries.
- Place the straw at the bottom of the strawberry
- Poke through the strawberry but aim towards the center of the top
- Remove the top by adding water in the straw or blowing it out
Step 2: Prep the Lemon
So first you want to cut your lemon in half. Please avoid doing this if you are not confident in your cutting skills. Then grab a strainer and push each half through pouring the juice into a bowl.
Step 3: Prep Honey
This step is simple, just pour 1/6 of a cup into a bowl or a measuring cup. As you can see in the picture, I poured the honey into the 1/3 size and filled it halfway.
Step 4: Place Items Into Blender
Once you place the items in the Vitamix, set the preset knob to the cold desserts mode. Before pressing start make sure:
- the lid is on
- the power button is on
- your hands are away from the blades
- the container is properly sealed
If all these conditions have been met, then you may press start. The process should take around 1 minute.
Step 5: Pour Mixture Into Glass Container, Then Place in Freezer
After the blending process is over, remove the lid. After that pour mixture into a glass container. Once that has been accomplished, you may place the item into the freezer. You should let it sit in there for about 2 hours or until everything freezes and is soft.
Step 6: Plating
Once the sorbet comes out of the freezer, the process gets easier. You can use an ice cream scooper of whatever method you prefer to put your sorbet into a bowl. So you may want to use a couple of plates and bowls to decorate your dessert. For example, I used 2 bowls and 1 plate. Have fun with it! Enjoy sharing this with your friends and family.
