The reason why i made this sorbet was, that i was so disappointed when i went to my most favourite restaurant in Ghana – spent a lovely evening there with my family and had a fantastic dinner and when it was time to wrap up with a sweet ending, i got served some really nasty stuff. Ordered sorbet, and it was the yukkiest stuff I’d ever tasted ! I mean how difficult is it to make sorbet ??? And specially if you’re one of the finest places in town ! Well so i had to get back and try my own. Gosh this stuff is easy ! I bought a whole lotta strawberries so i made some extremely healthy yogurt lollies too. Never hurts to have something sweet n nutritious in the freezer right :p, for those crazy irristible cravings at the 11th hour.

Strawberry Sorbet

Strawberry Sorbet Infused with Orange Blossom Water

  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1  pound  fresh strawberries, hulled
  • 2  tablespoons orange blossom water
  • 2  tablespoons  lemon juice
  • pinch of salt

 

In a small pot over medium-high heat, bring sugar and 1/2 cup water to a simmer. Stir to dissolve sugar, then remove pot from heat and cool to room temperature, about 20 minutes. Meanwhile, puree strawberries in a blender. Pour puree through a fine-mesh sieve to remove seeds, pressing down with a spatula to extract liquid. Discard seeds.In a medium bowl, combine sugar syrup, strawberry puree, orange blossom water, lemon juice, and salt. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until well chilled, at least 2 hours. Stir mixture well, then freeze in an ice cream maker according to manufacturer’s directions.

 

Strawberry Yogurt Lolly

Strawberry Yogurt Lollies

  • 6 tablespoons low fat yogurt
  • 8 strawberries hulled
  • 1 tablespoon sugar

In a small saucepan, heat through the strawberries and the sugar, till the strawberries begin to break down a bit. Turn off the heat and let it cool and the puree the strawberries and beat into the yogurt, blending it well. I don’t like to put the yogurt in the blender and it become really runny then, so mixing it thoroughly with your whisk is sufficient. Pour into the lolly molds and freeze overnight. Makes four lollies, may vary from shape of the lolly mold.

getting sorbets in restaurants is not always the best thing. i love the color yours has and the lollies look absolutely divine! soeren will love em!

Oh my God nice to see you back. Pink pink pink….My favourite color. Both of then look luscious, alluring and tempting. Yummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

You’re right! These are really easy and delicious too!

I love the fresh colours! Did you use some sort of a mold for the lollies or just water glasses?

Nothing beat homemade sorbet. I always make my own, and it’s not really complicated to make either.
Yours look mouth watering, and I should try those lollies when my nephews come to visit.

Wow….the sorbet looks delicious! So refreshing and yummy!

I love the color in your photos. They really POP! 🙂

what an elegant way to serve sorbet, my friend! lovely as usual.

How can you take such stunning pictures of something as difficult to photograph as sorbet!? That’s it.. i know.. you’re a *magician*! 🙂
Hope all is well on your side of the world!

Your pictures are seriously amazing! I love…love…love looking at your website!

Nice music, sounds just like what my son listens to… hehe, anyway I must say the sorbet and lollies are to die for the colours are just amazing, and I am sure the flavours too…great 😀

Wow, Kate! Those look incredible! Definitely something for when the strawberries come in abundance– especially those yogurt pops, I’ve never had those before 🙂

What a perfect colour your sorbet has!

The color of that sorbet is simply stunning.

I could do with a few of those in my fridge. Its already so hot here!

I totally understand the need to make something to take away the nasty taste of something substandard which was supposed to have so much promise.

Can’t wait to enjoy these when it warms up here!

They look wonderful and refreashing. Who is that adorable child?

These look sinfully delicious and so perfect!

Love the pictures. I’ve heard about a lady in osu who bakes cakes to order…is that you?

Kajal, your sorbet looks gorgeous!!! I like the idea of adding some orange flower water to strawberries. It may nicely enhance their flavour. Definitely to try in the strawberry season!!

I think we’re on the same wavelenght right now. I was just about to go and defrost some strawberries for a sorbet!
