Strawberry Crush Recipes for Strawberry Sherbat


40 ounces of strawberries frozen in light syrup
8 teaspoons of corn starch
½ cup sugar
2 teaspoons of lemon peel
2 tablespoons of lemon juice
3 teaspoon of vanilla extract
2 cans of evaporated milk, fat free about 12 ounces
Fresh strawberries halved for garnish (optional)

Juicy Strawberry Crush Method:

  • Thaw the frozen strawberries thoroughly before proceeding with the method. Stir the sugar, lemon peel and corn starch in a small sauce pan. As the sugar melts add the evaporated milk. Cook over medium heat stirring constantly until the mixture turns thick and bubbly. Cook for 2 more minutes and add vanilla extract at this stage. Stir for few seconds and remove from the heat. Transfer the contents to a bowl and cover it with cling film. Place the covered bowl in the refrigerator to chill for up to an hour or till it is completely chilled.
  • Combine lemon juice with strawberries in light syrup in a food processor or blender. Cover the processor or blender and process or blend to get a smooth paste. Remove the milk mixture bowl from the fridge. Stir this strawberry paste in the chilled milk mixture. Pour the mixture in a 2 quarts ice cream freezer and freeze in the refrigerator according to the manufacturer’s direction. Now pack this mixture in a freezer container and cover it. Freeze it until firm, for approximately 3 hours.
  • As the contents are firm scoop the chilled sherbet in serving bowls and serve chilled. If desired, serve the sherbet with fresh halved strawberries. This recipe makes 2 serving.
