Think Summer, think strawberries - this sorbet recipe is a great way to do something a bit different. Plus, it's a lot lower in calories than serving the strawberries with cream!

Strawberry Sorbet

Ingredients

  • 4 Tbsp Caster Sugar
  • 250g Strawberries
  • 200 ml Water
  • ½ Lemon, Juiced
  • ¼ Sachet Agar-Agar, Vegetarian Gelatine
  • 4 Tbsp Sweetener, Canderel*

Method

  1. Place the water, sugar and sweetener into a saucepan. Bring it to the boil over a low heat, stirring frequently for 5 minutes.
  2. Remove from the heat and set aside to cool.
  3. Meanwhile, purée the strawberries in a blender (or mash by hand). Sieve the strawberries to remove the pips then add to the cooling sugar water along with the juice of half a lemon.
  4. Melt the gelatine in a bowl with 1 tsbp water, then add to the sugar water mixture in the saucepan and stir until all ingredients are combined into one smooth liquid.
  5. Place the mixture into your ice cream/sorbet maker and leave to churn for 20 minutes or until the required consistency is achieved.
  6. Serve in generous scoops.

How to Make Sorbet In the Freezer

You don't need an ice cream maker to make sorbet, but the texture of the finished sorbet will not be as smooth without one. Place the mixture in a container and pop it in the freezer for 3-4 hours. Mix the sorbet regularly with a fork as it freezes, or process it in a food processor once frozen.
