In anticipation of summer – not that we had a particularly harsh winter in NYC – I’ve been craving a refreshing sorbet this whole week. A while back my mother-in-law gave me this easy and delicious strawberry coconut sorbet recipe that I’ve been meaning to try out. I’m not exactly sure if this is technically a sorbet because it contains ‘milk’. However, I think the distinction between sorbet and sherbert is more about dairy, so I’m just going to go ahead and call this a sorbet!
This sorbet came out really creamy in texture because of the coconut milk. The coconut flavor isn’t too overpowering and the sorbet remains refreshing with a hint of tart lime juice. I really enjoyed making this recipe because it was so easy to prepare, no need to heat anything or re-freeze twice.
Strawberry Sorbet with Coconut Milk Recipe
Add all ingredients to blender or food processor and puree until smooth. Place puree mixture in ice cream maker and churn until creamy and thick. If you’re planning on freezing this overnight, add a splash of vodka now (This keeps the sorbet from getting too hard). Transfer to an airtight container and store in freezer.
