This strawberry banana sorbet magically blends up in just 5 minutes! It is naturally sweet and amazingly refreshing.
Fruit sorbet is different than ice cream because there is no dairy in the recipe. Because the main ingredients are just fruit, it isn’t as creamy as ice cream. Sorbet has more of an icy refreshing texture. It is an amazing treat when you want something sweet but not overly decadent and heavy.
How to Make Strawberry Banana Sorbet
One of the reasons we love sorbet is because it is one of the easiest recipes to make in the entire world. Yes – the world. This is a great recipe to make when your fruit is very ripe and very sweet. There is no added sugar and so the more ripe your fruit, the sweeter your sorbet will be.
- Slice your strawberries and bananas and lay flat on a baking sheet. Freeze for an hour or so until they are mostly frozen through. If you forget about it and they freeze solid, just leave them on your counter for about 15 minutes before you want to start making your sorbet.
- Place strawberries, banana and a squeeze of lemon in a blender or food processor. Pulse until mixture begins to combine and looks like small pebbles. Then blend together until smooth and creamy.
- You can serve it right then and it will have the most amazing texture. If you aren’t ready to serve it, then place in an airtight container and freeze until you are ready to eat it!
Strawberry Banana Combination
Bananas are sweet and creamy and so they are the perfect balance to tart and more firm strawberries. The different flavors of these fruits blend so good with each other, especially in a frozen dessert. If your fruit isn’t very ripe, you can add a little bit of honey to the mixture to sweeten it up a bit.

- Slice strawberries and bananas.
- Put the strawberries and bananas on a baking sheet in the freezer for an hour. To save this step, you can make up pre-portioned out bags ahead of time so you can just pull out a bag when you want to make your sorbet!
- Once the fruit has been in the freezer for at least an hour, put it in your food processor or blender along with the lemon juice from one lemon and process until smooth – scrape down the sides when you need. The sorbet will be soft serve style texture right out of the blender, or you can put it in the freezer to firm up for a bit if you want.
