Strawberry Lime Sorbet (Low Carb)

low carb strawberry lime sorbet

In South Carolina summertime always means two things: 1) It will be hot the ENTIRE time…plus into the Fall and 2) Berries are fresh and in seasoning.  Ok, well strawberries are more of a spring thing, but you can still catch some fresh strawberries in the early parts of the summer.  Luckily for me there has been fresh strawberries at the farmers’ market.  Since I got my ice cream maker last year right before I started a Whole30, and couldn’t eat sweets, it didn’t leave me much time to make any ice creams or sorbets.  This year I got right to work as soon as there was the slightest bit of warm weather.  Before I get to the recipe, I want to share with you why strawberries are so nutritious and good for those that are trying to heal from adrenal fatigue.

Benefits of Strawberries:

  • Contain calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, and potassium
  • A good source of vitamin C which is essential for healing tired adrenal glands
  • Have been found to protect against cervical and breast cancer
  • The flavonoids gives strawberries its anti-inflammatory properties

It’s important to note that strawberries are on the “Dirty Dozen” produce list which means they are most likely to contain pesticides and chemicals so it’s important to always chose organic strawberries.  I use this ice cream maker and absolutely love it.  It’s so easy to use and makes sorbets and ice creams in 20 mins or less.

    Can you also do this by pouring the liquid into a glass dish and freezing, while stirring every so often to keep it pliable? I don’t have an ice cream maker, so wondering if there is any viable solution.

    Wonderful recipe…i had no idea sorbet could be this easy and delicious. I used liquid EZ Sweetz and added one tablespoon of vodka to keep it from getting so hard. I didnt care for the zest tho and wont use it again. I didnt do it right and the zest pieces were too large. Cant wait to try blueberries and raspberries. Thanks for the recipe!

      Glad you liked it! I use a microplane to zest the lime so it’s very fine. I could see how larger pieces wouldn’t taste very good. I need to make some with the blueberries I have. Thanks for the reminder!
