Happy Friday! I can’t believe I made it through the week!

I’ve been a little lazy this week and it feels I haven’t done much! Well things like that happen, so I’m hoping to be back to normal next week!

I’m a little busy baking Easter breads this weekend, because it is Greek Easter on Sunday!

But in the mean time, I have a pretty easy, sweet and delicious recipe for a homemade strawberry sorbet.

To be honest, I’m not a huge fan of frozen desserts, I do prefer chocolate and cake. But lately, I’ve been starting to make ice cream more often. My husband loves all sorts of ice cream, so this sorbet made him happy.

The idea for this sorbet came to me while I was looking through the book “The Slanted Door Charles Phan Modern Vietnamese Food“, which was given to me by a friend for my birthday. Charles Phan is a Vietnamese chef, who owns restaurants in San Francisco. Definitely planning to visit The Slanted Door Restaurant on my next trip to San Francisco. And the book includes some of his amazing recipes, so I really enjoyed it.

For the sorbet, I used fresh strawberries and my Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker. It does not take a long time to make, just around 40 minutes, but I recommend that you chill the sorbet mixture for at least 2 hours, before adding it to the ice cream maker. And if you are using an ice cream maker or ice cream bowl for Kitchen Aid, make sure you chill these bowls properly, following the manufacturer’s instructions. This recipe makes around 3 pints of sorbet.
