Strawberry, Nectarine, Orange and Banana Sorbet

What would you do if you have lots of fruits and they are all becoming over ripe? Sorbet is your best answer and that’s what I did with mine. I had several pieces of strawberries, nectarines, oranges and bananas and they are nearly over ripe so I peeled them, removed any seed and blended them with my choice of sweetener and some liquor like cognac or brandy to prevent it from totally freezing.


There are no set ingredients if you want to make your own at home just choose your favourite fruits and adjust the sweetness to your liking, remember frozen items taste less sweet than when it’s warm so you want to add a bit more sweetness.

  1. This looks like a great way to use up fruit before it goes to waste! I love the color.

    It’s that easy? Thanks for the ice cream maker recommendations. I’m starting to see way too many ice cream recipes and it’s really hot out now. I think I may have to give in and get one.

    We buy so much fruit at this time of the year that some always gets a bit overripe. Great way to use it! And the weather is hot here, so sorbet is so refreshing. Thanks for this.

  4. Absolutely wonderful combination of flavours!
    Have a super day.

    I’ve never made homemade sorbet. What a great idea! This flavor combo sounds so good. I love banana combined with orange and strawberry. Those are typically my go-to smoothie ingredients.

    Too much fruit in the fridge to even start listing it all. We’ve been making smoothies but I LOVE the idea of sorbets. Headed to put the ice cream container in the freezer. Thanks Raymund. Great idea!
