Make Your Own Sherbet With A Blender

Strawberry Sherbet Recipe

July 25, 2012   18 Comments

Who doesn’t love blenders? Whhhhhhirrrrrr, and voila, a frothy beverage.

I’m sure I would have millions more readers if I just started writing about blender drinks. But, today I’m going to talk about “Blender Sherbet”.

I was challenged by a reader to find a sorbet recipe for her blender. From JoyAnn:

I have a blender and have been trying a number of recipes to make fruit sorbets and almond milk ice cream, but no real success. I'm not sure if I'm using the wrong blender settings or my proportions are off.

I've seen YouTube videos that use food processor successfully but I don't want to buy another appliance nor do I have the space for it. Any suggestions?!?!

Well, how about sherbet? Sherbet is really similar to sorbet - I just added yogurt to give an extra creaminess to the recipe and it worked.

It is kinda crazy how easy this is. Just cut up some strawberries, add lime juice, and one yogurt and blend. Add honey or whatever sweetener you want to taste and freeze it.

Apologies to those who are tired of strawberries. Last week, I did a low sugar strawberry jam. This recipe also features very little added sugar when you compare it to commercial sherbets. My sherbet does taste more sour, but it tastes of fresh strawberries.

I tried to make this in my ice cream maker but I didn’t follow the manufacturer’s instructions (whoops!) so mine came out a bit grainy. The taste was so gooooood. The freshness of your own sherbet puts packaged sherbets to shame.

I think this recipe would be perfect for popsicle molds and then you don't have to worry about an ice cream maker.

Strawberry Blender Sherbet Recipe

(makes 8 servings)

4 cups sliced strawberries
3/4 cup (6 oz.) strawberry yogurt
Juice of 1 lime
3 tablespoons honey (to taste)

Place all of the ingredients (except the honey) into the blender and blend until smooth. Add honey and sweeten to taste.

If you own an ice cream maker, follow the manufacturer’s directions and make the sherbert. If you do not have an ice cream maker, pour the sherbet mixture from the blender into a freezer safe container and take it out of the freezer to mix it every half hour until the desired consistency is achieved. Or pour mixture into popsicle molds for “sherbert pops”.

My husband and I were recently trying to figure out what to do with fruit that was getting too soft - we used a small blender with 1 cup of nectarines and 1 cup of fat free vanilla yogurt - it didn't even need any sweetener. Wow - delicious! I'm going to try adding the lime juice that you have listed in your recipe - I've seen that a few times in recipes recently and would like to see the difference in flavor.

Never thought about making sherbet/sorbet on my own. I actually have a food processor and not a blender... so I may be looking up those You Tube videos! Thanks for sharing.

Great stuff...I am not sure if this would make it into my freezer. I would probably just eat this stuff like soft ice cream.

Every time I try something new with a blender, the blender stops working. So, now I have my daughter or husband use it, This sounds right up their alley.

Thanks for sharing. For a non-dairy option, I'm going to try a non-dairy yogurt. Thanks again! I'm excited to give it all a try!

I make banana almond milk ice cream in my blender. I add a frozen banana, 1 cup of almond milk, a tablespoon of chopped walnuts, ice and blend. Sometimes I use a sweetner, but if the banana is ripe enough when frozen, it's usually sweet enough. Comes out like soft serve, or you can freeze it. Makes good creamy popsicles too.

If you use frozen strawberries, you won't even have to freeze it. It'll take awhile to get everything blended, and you may have to add more liquid, but it turns out like a really thick smoothie with a soft-serve consistency. My kids love it!

I HATE bananas, so I've been trying to think of an alternative for the banana based "faux ice cream" recipes -- this one is perfect

Just bought myself a Nutribullet (which I love) so am definitely going to try this in that.

I bought a "Yonanas" machine last week. You feed frozen fruit into it and out comes sorbet. Delicious!

Can I do the same for other fruits like watermelon,papaya, pineapple etc? Berries are very expensive where I live.
