Ingredients & Substitutions to Make Strawberry Sorbet in the Ninja CREAMi
There are only three ingredients in this recipe, and you probably already have them on hand! Here’s what I used in the recipe below:
Fresh strawberries I used fresh strawberries in my batch of sorbet. But you could also use frozen strawberries. Just remember that you must thaw them first before using in the recipe.
A Note About Frozen Fruit!
Remember, if using frozen fruit in a recipe, you must first thaw it. This is important for two reasons. First, soft, mushy fruit mixes more evenly with the sweetener and helps it dissolve. Second, once you mash the fruit, this eliminates any air pockets in the blend, which can cause damage to your Ninja CREAMi machine during processing.
Sweetener Since I follow a low-carb/keto diet, I always use this monk fruit sweetener in all my recipes. It’s not only perfect for a keto diet, but I think it has the best flavor of all the low-carb sweeteners on the market. But if you prefer another sweetener, then feel free to substitute it in the recipe. If you choose to use sugar, just remember that the carb count is going to be significantly higher, and the recipe may no longer be considered low-carb or keto.
Raw agave nectar This is an optional ingredient in the recipe that I choose to use sometimes when the berries aren’t as ripe as I think they are, or are otherwise tart. This sweetener will give a “warm sugar” flavor to the sorbet, in my opinion, and adds just a touch more sweetness when necessary, but does add more carbs. Feel free to leave it out if you like.

Recipe for Ninja CREAMi Strawberry Sorbet
- 3 cups fresh strawberries, washed and quartered
- 1 Tbsp monk fruit sweetener
- 1 Tbsp raw agave nectar (optional)
- In a medium bowl, mix together the fresh strawberries, monk fruit sweetener, and raw agave nectar if using. Using the back of a fork, smash the strawberries until they begin to release their juice. Stir everything together with a spatula until the sweetener is dissolved.
- Pour the strawberry mixture into a CREAMi pint. Ensure that it doesn't go over the MAX FILL line. Then put the lid on it.
- Place the pint in the freezer, making sure it's level. Freeze for 24 hours.
- Take the pint from the freezer, remove the lid, and place it in the outer bowl of the Ninja CREAMi. Install the paddle in the lid and attach the lid to the outer bowl.
- Plug in the Ninja CREAMi unit and install the bowl on the base.
- Press the power button and select LITE ICE CREAM.
- When the unit shuts off, remove the bowl from the base and remove the lid.
- If the sorbet is crumbly, then reattach the lid and install the bowl on the base again. Select RE-SPIN. You can re-spin the mixture twice if needed.
- Once the sorbet is at the right consistency, serve immediately.
