Strawberry Banana Sorbet

This sorbet packs a burst of fresh strawberry and banana flavor in every bite. The consistency of a sorbet should be very smooth, not chunky, so using an electric mixer in step 3 is critical to provide smoothness and fluffiness.

(5 cups, 10 servings)

  • 1 lb. frozen unsweetened strawberries
  • 2 ripe medium bananas, peeled 1 (16 oz.) container plain low-fat yogurt
  • 1 Tbsp. sugar
  1. Purée the strawberries and bananas in a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth. Add the yogurt and sugar. Blend until smooth.
  2. Pour into an 8-inch-square pan. Freeze for 2 to 3 hours, or until firm. Break the frozen mixture into chunks and place in a chilled mixer bowl.
  3. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until fluffy. Return to the pan; cover and freeze for at least 6 hours, or until firm.
