No-Churn Strawberry Basil Sorbet

  • Category: Dessert


  • 4 cups strawberries (tops cut off)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup basil (packed)


  1. In a small saucepan, combine the sugar, 1 cup water and basil. Simmer over medium heat for 10-15 minutes, or until sugar is dissolved. Let cool. Drain the syrup away from the basil leaves and discard the leaves. Reserve syrup for the sorbet.
  2. In a blender, combine the strawberries, vanilla, and 1/2 cup water. Blend until smooth (I left a few chunks in mine). Stir in cooled basil syrup. Pour into a deep container and freeze for at least 4-6 hours before serving. You may need to let the sorbet sit out at room temperature for 20 minutes or so before scooping and serving.
