Many years ago, I began making homemade ice cream and sorbet for my family, using an ice cream maker attachment for my KitchenAid mixer.
That method has served me well for many years now. I’ve also made many no-churn ice cream recipes, which don’t require an ice cream machine at all!
Every summer, we happily enjoy some of our favorite homemade frozen desserts, thanks to those two methods.
But more recently, I invested in a Ninja Creami ice cream maker, which uses a different method for preparing cool and creamy frozen treats.
And because I love using fresh fruit to make sorbets, I decided to try making some Ninja Creami strawberry sorbet!
The result is a smooth, refreshing frozen treat that disappears fast. It’s perfect for summer or any time you need a cool treat.
Eat it plain or use it as the base for some smoothie bowls! It’s the perfect way to use up everyone’s favorite berries!

Making Strawberry Sorbet in the Ninja Creami
Normally, when you make sorbet, you prepare the fruit base and then freeze it by churning it in a frozen drum of an ice cream maker.
The Ninja Creami is a fantastic kitchen appliance that reverses that traditional process of making sorbet! You start by preparing the fruit base, and then freeze it for at least 24 hours.
Then you use your Ninja Creami to transform the base into sorbet, with just the touch of a button.
To do this, you’ll use the Sorbet function (one of seven settings on the machine), which finely chops or shaves the frozen concoction.
It’s worth noting that the Ninja Creami is not a blender–in fact, the blades aren’t even sharp.
But the Ninja’s Creamify technology somehow transforms the solid bases into the perfect sweet treat for a hot summer day–especially with this delightfully refreshing strawberry sorbet!
How to Make Strawberry Sorbet in the Ninja Creami
It’s really easy to make this simple strawberry sorbet. It’s one of those easy Ninja Creami recipes you’ll want to make again and again, and you only need a couple of simple ingredients!
Ingredients You’ll Need:
- Fresh strawberries
- A dash of milk or juice (for re-spinning)
How to Make this Easy Strawberry Sorbet Recipe:
(Full printable recipe is available below)
Mix the base. First, you’ll start by chopping some strawberries. Add those to the bowl of a food processor along with some granulated sugar.
Puree the mixture until smooth. You want to end up with roughly 2 cups of strawberry mixture, but it’s okay if it’s a little less. Sometimes I only get about 1 3/4 cups, and that still works fine.
Freeze. Next, you’ll pour the strawberry mixture into a Ninja Creami pint container, being careful not to fill past the max fill line, and close the lid.
Transfer to a level surface in your freezer (you want it to freeze nice and level) and freeze for 24 hours.
Creamify. After 24 hours, remove the lid from the pint and insert into the bowl of the Ninja Creami. Lock the outer bowl lid and place bowl assembly in the Ninja Creami machine.
Select the Sorbet and let the Ninja do the rest!
Re-Spin if needed. After spinning for the first time, check the texture. If the mixture is a bit crumbly, add a tablespoon of milk or juice (such as apple or orange juice) to the pint, then use the Re-spin function.
You can do this once or twice, or until the desired texture is achieved. The whole process shouldn’t take more than 5-10 minutes, and you can enjoy strawberry sorbet whenever the craving strikes!
Scoop and serve!
Notes and Adaptations:
- If you want to decrease the refined sugar in this recipe, you can try using monk fruit sweetener (such as Lakanto) instead of granulated sugar.
- I find that the best way to enjoy leftovers is to let the container sit at room temperature for about 10-15 minutes before serving. If you’re in a hurry, you can put it through the re-spin cycle in your Ninja Creami (just be sure to smooth the top out before re-freezing).
- 16-ounce container of fresh strawberries
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1-2 TBSP milk or juice
- Wash, hull, and halve the fresh strawberries. Place in the bowl of a food processor.
- Add sugar to the bowl of the food processor. Puree until smooth.
- Transfer mixture to a Ninja Creami pint container and secure the lid. Place on a level surface in the freezer and freeze for 24 hours.
- Remove pint container from freezer and remove lid. Place pint into the outer bowl of the Ninja Creami and lock the outer bowl lid into place.
- Secure the outer bowl into the Ninja Creami machine. Press the Sorbet button and let the cycle run (this should take about 2 minutes).
- Remove outer bowl from machine and take off the lid. If the mixture appears crumbly, add a tablespoon of milk or juice, then return to the machine and press the Re-Spin button. If necessary, repeat re-spin cycle until desired texture is achieved.
- Scoop and serve!
