Benefits of a Ninja Creami
Making this sorbet is a breeze thanks to our trusty Ninja Creami. If you haven't gotten yourselves one of these yet, I cannot recommend it enough.
Here are some of its standout features:
- Make Ahead: One of the major benefits of the Ninja ice cream maker is the ability to make your mixtures ahead of time. You can prepare several different bases, store them in the freezer, and then churn them into ice cream, sorbets, or milkshakes whenever you're ready. It's perfect for meal prep or when you want a sweet treat on demand.
- Easy to Make Different Flavors The Same Day: With its fast churning process, the Ninja Creami allows you to create multiple flavors in a single day. Want to serve a selection of homemade ice creams, gelatos, and sorbets at your next dinner party? With the Ninja Creami, you can!
- Easy to Clean: Unlike many other brands, the Ninja Creami ice cream maker is easy to clean. Its parts are removable and dishwasher safe, which means less time cleaning up and more time enjoying your delicious creations.
- Multiple Modes: The Ninja Creami isn't just for making ice cream. It also has modes for creating light and refreshing sorbets, rich and creamy milkshakes, and even smooth bowls. This versatility makes it a valuable addition to any kitchen.
- Strawberries: The star of the show, strawberries give our sorbet its vibrant color and sweet-tart flavor. If you don't have fresh berries on hand, frozen strawberries can also work, just make sure to thaw them slightly before use so you can blend them.
- Sugar or Honey: This sweetens our sorbet and helps give it a smooth texture. If you'd like to try an alternative sweetener, agave syrup or maple syrup could be used instead. Monk fruit sweetener or allulose could also be used. Just remember that different sweeteners may slightly alter the final taste and texture.
- Fresh Lemon Juice: The lemon juice adds a touch of brightness and helps enhance the strawberry flavor.

Tips and Tricks
- Choose ripe strawberries: The key to a flavorful sorbet is using ripe, juicy strawberries. They'll give your sorbet that natural sweetness and vibrant color we're after.
- Sweeten to your taste: The recipe calls for a ¼ cup of sugar or honey, but feel free to adjust this based on your preference. If your strawberries are super sweet, you might want to cut back a bit.
- Don't skip the lemon juice: It might seem like a small detail, but the fresh lemon juice really makes a difference. It helps balance the sweetness and brings out the flavor of the strawberries.
- Experiment with flavors: Once you've mastered the basic strawberry sorbet, don't be afraid to mix things up! Try adding fresh basil or mint for an interesting twist.
- Re-spin if necessary: If after your sorbet is done processing and you give it a good stir you aren’t happy with the texture, you can process it again on the re-spin cycle. Make sure to use the back of a fork to give the top of the sorbet a level surface first.

You can use frozen fruit, but you need to partially thaw and blend it with a little liquid first. It is important that they be fully blended and that there are no large chunks.
