Breville Smart Scoop Ice Cream Maker: Homemade strawberry sorbet

Last evening, I made strawberry sorbet using strawberry ‘seconds’ that I’d purchased from a local farm. The sorbet is sugar-free. I used a small amount of honey in place of sugar. Results? It was amazing. I did not make a lot, so I’ll be making another batch soon, most likely later this evening.

I used my Breville Smart Scoop Ice Cream Maker to make the sorbet.

My Breville Smart Scoop has a compressor

I’ve had the Breville Smart Scoop Ice Cream Maker for a few weeks. It’s a step up from the Cuisinart I purchased many years ago. My Cuisinart ice cream maker did not have a built-in condenser, so I had to freeze the pail holding the ice cream (for 24 hours) before making my ice cream. Since the Breville Smart Scoop has a built-in compressor, I can make ice cream, gelato, sorbet, frozen yogurt… well, you get the idea! Yummy frosty goodness in under an hour! It tastes just as good as frozen treats bought from the store.

Memories of my first time eating homemade ice cream

I fondly remember my Sunday School teacher, Mrs. Zirk, making homemade ice cream manually at her place. She had her Sunday school class at her home. I sat on her porch steps with her, and a few other children were gathered about her as she talked and stirred the heavy cream and other ingredients within the wooden bucket.

I bought the Breville Smart Scoop locally

Typically, I buy items from Amazon; however, I wanted to make ice cream later that day, and although I can get many things the same day, depending on what I chose, this was unavailable. A quick search showed me that the closest place that had them available was WIlliams-Sonoma which is almost an hour from where I live. Fine, road trip! My lovely daughter created the first item in the ice cream maker; She made her favorite ice cream, mint chocolate chip ice cream.

I look forward to making many frozen treats with my Breville Smart Scoop ice cream maker.
