A Strawberry Sorbet with a Secret

Remember to check for added sugars or sodium when buying frozen vegetables or fruit.  I didn’t have frozen strawberries so I threw a box of them in the freezer.  This is a great alternative if you are buying in bulk as I do.  It prevents rotting fruits and veggies and saves you from having to buy pre-packaged.  My kids LOVED this sorbet, as did I and you know what I didn’t have while eating this?  GUILT!  Isn’t it fantastic to indulge while rewarding your body?

  • 1 1/2 cups frozen strawberries, stems included
  • 5 baby carrots
  • 1/2 lime, rind and all
  • 1/8 c. agave sweetner, or a sweetner of your choice
  • 1-2 cups of ice, depending on how thick you want it

Begin with Vitamix on variable, speed 1 and quickly increase to 10.  Use tamper to push ingredients into the motor.  This machine will not overheat!  It is a powerhouse, so don’t worry.  Increase to high and blend about 45 seconds or until you see 4 mounds form inside your pitcher.  The 4 mounds are you cue that your dessert is completely frozen and ready to enjoy.  We topped ours’ with a little whipped cream:)  This makes enough for 4.

    When Vitamix hires you as a sales rep, make sure you get some free and give one to me!

    *Really, they should be paying you for all the free advertising you are doing for them. I am so serious, not even being a smart ass 😉

      I wish I could be a sales rep:) I really do love that machine! I agree though, maybe I should stop plugging Vitamix until they pay me something to do so. But there’s nothing else like it.

    Can these be done with a juicer?

      Crystal, I’ve never used a juicer, but I’d lean more towards no. Juicers extract juice and you then toss the pulp and rinds and such, while Vitamix uses the entire fruit or vegetable. You could probably do it with peeled carrots, stemmed strawberries and a peeled lime, but you lose alot of the fiber, vitamins, and minerals when you discard it.

    My Vitamix is being delivered today!! (Had to order via QVC because they offered a payment option). I am SO excited! Just hoping to catch a demo at Wegmans soon because I have no idea how to use it. Thankful for your posts as a reference of recipes to try 🙂
