Spring is in full effect here in Ontario. I swear, everyday I hear more and more birds chirping and animals wandering around, but where is the warmer weather? — it just isn’t as consistent as it should be at this point. It’s been really cold on and off the last two weeks and I’m crossing everything that the weather network isn’t wrong with the prediction of warmer weather later this week. I know I’m ready for it, and my kids? Are dying for me to make more of this Strawberry and Peach Sorbet.
I made it a couple summers ago, and never posted it. I’ve made it 100 times since, and still never posted it so I figured now would be a great time.
I want to start off by saying you can add anything to sorbet’s and because my kids tend to be picky when it comes to the more healthier options I’ve added in frozen vanilla yogurt to this recipe.
- 3 + 1/2 Cups Frozen Peach Chunks (which was the whole bag!)
- 3 + 1/2 Cups Frozen Strawberries
- 4 Tablespoons of honey
- 1 Teaspoon fresh lemon juice
- 1/3 Cup water
- 1/3 Cup frozen vanilla yogurt
- 6 Ice Cubes
- Dump frozen peach chunks into your blender and switch to “smoothie”
- Add two tablespoons of honey, 1/3 cup of water and mix well
- Place half of your other ingredients into your blender – so half the 1/3 cup frozen vanilla yogurt, three ice cubes, half of 1/2 a teaspoon of lemon juice and one tablespoons of honey into blender and blend until a smooth consistency
- Stir frequently to ensure it doesn’t get too much like a liquid
- Once blended and thick (if it isn’t as thick as you’d like, add a bit more frozen yogurt) pour into pan and place in freezer
- Then you’ll need to repeat steps for the strawberry chunks
- Once you repeat steps 1-5 with strawberries pour on top of the peach mix
- Place back in the freezer to firm up for 4+ hours. Or, serve immediately if you are like me and like a smoother, creamy sorbet!
It’s so simple, and my kids absolutely love homemade sorbet. Sometimes I think more than homemade ice cream, and that is a huge hit in my house too.

While we all are dealing with the stresses of life, and our new normal this recipe is quick and easy to make, the kids can help and it will be the new treat of the summer!
