I was so excited last Wednesday to see fresh strawberries at the Holland Farmer’s Market! I love strawberry season. Actually, there are many seasons I love in the summer (raspberry, cherry, peach, blueberry, tomato…), but I can't help but be especially excited for strawberries!
It was a good base, but I tweaked it a bit because when I tried it, it didn’t have a strong enough flavor, despite the fact that I used fresh strawberries.
So, here’s what I did:
I combined in a blender (Vitamix) the
4 cups fresh strawberries
1/2 cup fresh strawberry jam
1 pinch of sea salt
3 1/2 tsp. fresh lemon juice
1 Tbsp. honey
Then I put it in a 13 x 9 glass pan in the freezer for about 4 hours. I scooped it out and blended it again, and served. It was still a little soft for me, so I just had a little bit (I couldn't resist), and put it back in the freezer in a covered container to harden some more.
It is soooo easy and everyone really loved it. It’s quite refreshing and a fun summertime dessert for your family and friends.
By the way, how many of you have a Vitamix? I’ve had mine for over 8 years and it’s still going strong. This is the 4th time I’ve used my Vitamix today - once for a smoothie for breakfast, once to make the sorbet, once to make a Bulletproof Coffee, and once again to blend the sorbet after it was frozen. You gotta love Vitamix!
