Thanks to our friends at the California Strawberry Commission for sponsoring this strawberry-ginger sorbet recipe post. As always, my comments, opinions, and love for strawberries are my own.

I have loved strawberries all my life. In fact, I would blend up a strawberry licuado for myself most every day before school when I was growing up. My mom would buy large baskets of strawberries in the mercado, then wash them and keep them in the fridge just for me. Thanks, mom!

Strawberries, available all year round in California, contain so many good things for you. A good source of fiber, folate, antioxidants and other nutrients, I love using them in many different types of dishes so I can be sure to get at least my portion of 8 strawberries each day! I invite you to read more about why experts recommend eating 8 a day here.

Here is one of those favorites dishes, Strawberry-Ginger Sorbet. Fresh, light and nutritious, I’ve added no sugar thanks to the natural sweetness of the strawberries and the apple juice, just make sure to buy 100% pure apple juice.

The only other ingredient is ginger. We like ginger so much for its refreshing spiciness, it complements the strawberry’s fragrant fruitiness. If you are not familiar with fresh ginger root, this is how it looks. You can remove the skin with a potato peeler.

Well anything that only needs three ingredients to make is a winner in my eyes and like you I grew up loving strawberries. I love the unexpected inclusion of the ginger as well, do you find that adds some spice to the sorbet? Sounds divine x

This looks refreshing. I have never used fresh ginger before so this would be a first. I may wait a few months until the strawberries go on sale.
