Strawberry Kiwi Sherbet

Have you been following my I Dream of Ice Cream series? So far I've shared two recipes - Very Vanilla Ice Cream and Cake Batter Ice Cream. I'm continuing today with a third frozen treat. This week I decided to try a strawberry kiwi sherbet. I love practically anything strawberry flavored, but I wanted to mix it up a little and add in the kiwi flavor too!  I love the combination of those two fruits. When I was younger, my absolute favorite drink was Strawberry Kiwi Gatorade. I haven't been able to find it in years, but I used to drink it all the time.

I decided to twist a strawberry sherbet recipe, using about a 3:1 ratio of strawberries to kiwi. That seemed to be common in various other strawberry kiwi recipes. What I found was that while the color resembled just strawberry, the kiwi flavor was still really strong. Next time, I might reduce it down even more. I liked the flavor, I'd just like the strawberry to be a tad more prominent. I've included the recipe the way I did it, but just note you might want to add in a little more strawberry.

Strawberry Kiwi Sherbet ingredients:
  • 3 cups hulled strawberries  
  • 2 small kiwi (about 1 cup)
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 1/4 cup sugar
  • Juice of one lemon
Strawberry Kiwi Sherbet instructions:
  • Make sure ice cream maker bowl is frozen and ready to use (if not freeze at least 24 hours)
  • Give the hulled strawberries a quick chop
  • Peel and give the kiwi a rough chop
  • Place kiwi and strawberries in a food processor
  • Sprinkle 1 tbs of sugar over the top
  • Squirt a whole lemon over the top of the fruit as well
  • Puree until smooth (you can push puree through strainer if you don't want seeds in your sherbet)
  • Place sugar and water in pan and heat on low until the sugar is dissolved
  • Remove from heat and whisk in with the fruit puree in a bowl
  • Beat heavy cream until it forms stiff peaks
  • Fold the heavy cream into the fruit mixture
  • Refrigerate at least a few hours
  • Prepare sherbet per ice cream maker instructions
  • Freeze for a couple hours before serving
