Equipment

  • blender
  • ice cream maker

Ingredients

  • 16 ounces strawberries
  • 1 cup lemonade concentrate
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest

Instructions

  • Wash and remove the stems from your fresh strawberries.
  • Place the prepared strawberries along with the lemonade concentrate in a blender and blend until smooth. DO NOT add the lemon zest to the blender.
  • Add the strawberry lemonade puree to an ice cream maker along with the lemon zest. Read and understand the manufacturer's directions. Your inner barrel or freezing bucket may need to be frozen ahead of time.
  • Freeze for up to 60 minutes. It will be a soft-serve when it is finished. Place in your freezer for another couple of hours if you would like for it to harden more.

Notes

Lemonade concentrate can be found in your freezer section. It is the type of product that requires water to be added in order to make lemonade. DO NOT add any water. Just use the concentrate as-is. OR make my lemonade concentrate in the Instant Pot with fresh lemons! 
After the sorbet has frozen in the ice cream maker it will be more of a "soft-serve".  If you would like your sorbet to be a little firmer, then put it in the freezer for a couple of more hours. This time is not included in the total time above. If your sorbet becomes too hard then allow it to sit on your counter for a few minutes.
If your ice cream maker requires freezing the inner bucket ahead of time, then please do so. My compressor ice cream maker does not require pre-freezing.
