One of my favorite Think Outside the Blender techniques is to use foods that are naturally soft, like bananas. They are especially soft when they are ripe and easily mashed with a fork. I left the slices whole (in different sizes) to give the presentation some shape and height.  And strawberries and bananas are always a great pairing!

1 cup of fresh strawberries, stems removedStrawberry Sorbet
1 tsp fresh lime juice
1/2 tsp honey or agave

1 ripe banana, sliced

Cut up strawberries and place on a plate in a single layer, cover with plastic wrap and freeze. Blend frozen strawberries, lime juice and honey or agave until smooth.  Scoop strawberry sorbet into bowl or on a plate and add sliced bananas, or layer into a parfait glass.
