Roasted Strawberry Sorbet

Roasted Strawberry Sorbet

This Roasted Strawberry Sorbet is made with Eastern Shore Honey and plant milk. In this version, I used coconut milk. I didn't realize how amazing it would taste. I didn't think my version would be as rich and creamy as a similar recipe made with buttermilk. Even my peeps who skipped dessert went for extra servings! It's amazing when topped with my "hot fudge," made with equal parts dark cocoa powder, honey, and coconut oil.

Roasted Strawberry Sorbet

I considered grilling the strawberries to get that smokey flavor from the wood, but the strawberries didn't hold up well. When you roast fruit, you are more in control than when grilling. With roasting, the flavor becomes more intense, the juices sweeter and richer and they almost take on a savory character. If you love strawberries, you'll love this recipe.
