As we’ve been sticking to all things clean and whole in our house, I must share with you the greatest temptation. Snacking and desserts. These two food categories could throw me off quicker than anything else. This recipe is legit, takes 3 ingredients, and doesn’t involve an ice cream maker. It makes it a winner for us. The sweetness of the sorbet comes through naturally through the strawberries. The citric acid from the lemon elevates the melded flavors of the basil and strawberries without being overly tart. (Also, it’s Whole30 approved which is huge. So indulge a bit and bookmark this recipe to make it through your 30 days.)
