What’s your favorite summer fruit? We go strawberry picking once a year and come home with a few pounds of strawberries, so it’s safe to say that is one of our favorites! Needless to say, we had tons of strawberries at home and had to find something to do with them before we had to freeze them.

Try our all-natural strawberry sorbet recipe with basil

After we got strawberry wasted in the car on the ride home, we still had tons left! We did end up freezing some of them for smoothies, but we thought we would try making a strawberry dessert. Sweet summer strawberries pair well with basil, I’ve tried a version of strawberry balsamic & basil ice cream at one of our local shops that was really, really good. We thought a homemade strawberry sorbet with basil would be a really good one to try!

If you’re a fan of ice cream but can’t really do dairy, sorbet is the perfect treat. This is no ordinary strawberry sorbet – we used all-natural ingredients in this recipe for a healthy sweet treat! We used fresh basil in this delicious recipe for a twist on one of our favorite cool desserts. If you’ve got extra strawberries after you make this sorbet, try our easy strawberry poke cake recipe using the rest of them. It’s a really good one!
