Strawberry Sorbet and Breville the Smart Scoop Review VIDEO

Strawberry SorbetSometimes you just need a tasty treat to satisfy your food cravings. This Strawberry Sorbet is easy to make and delicious to eat! It is from Oprah Winfrey’s new cookbook, Food, Health, and Happiness. I mentioned before how great this cookbook is, so I thought I would share one of her recipes with you.

I made this strawberry sorbet with a kitchen gadget that I am currently obsessed with. The Breville Smart Scoop is the first ice cream maker to automatically sense the hardness of the mixture based on your selection and keeps it ready until it’s time to serve. Everything I’ve made it so far has come out perfectly! My kids love helping me make all the frozen treats also. I have a few recipes I want to try and share!

To be honest, I’ve never made sorbet before. I’ve made my share of fruit popsicles, but never a good sorbet. With the Breville The Smart Scoop, it is easy to make a variety of frozen treats. Depending on the hardness setting, you can make sorbet, frozen yogurt, gelato or ice cream. The Smart Scoop pre-cools to the optimal temperature so that when you place your mix into the machine it can start making it immediately. It only takes a few minutes to cool!

Food, Health, and Happiness have fantastic recipes from some of Oprah’s favorite chefs alongside wonderful stories that she shares. Everything from savory to sweet. I can’t wait to try more of her recipes. There are 115 to choose from.

The removable bowl in the Breville Smart Scoop holds 1.5 quarts of ice cream. It also plays fun ice cream truck songs when it is finished churning. Check out the video to hear all of them!

I REALLY love the Breville Smart Scoop. It makes frozen treats better than anything I’ve used at home. Stay tuned for more awesome frozen treat recipes!
