Fresh Rec Stop Recipe: Strawberry Sorbet

By Garrett Simpson, NASM-CNC, Community Health Leader

The summer is here and there’s no better way to cool off than with a bowl of this perfect three ingredient sorbet. The vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants in strawberries provide important health benefits.

  • Strawberries are rich in vitamin C and polyphenols, antioxidant compounds that may help prevent some diseases.

If you don’t enjoy strawberries, this recipe can easily be changed to your favorite frozen fruit, including mangos, raspberries, or blueberries.
