Strawberry-Banana Sherbet

Sherbet is lighter than ice cream and richer than sorbet. It's made from a frozen mix of sweetened fruit juice and water that's often fortified with milk, cream, egg whites, syrup, or gelatin to impart a smooth, soft consistency.

  • servings: 8




  • 4 cups (2 pints) strawberries, stemmed
  • 4 medium, very ripe bananas, peeled
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup (about 4 oranges) fresh orange juice
  • 3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice (about 1 1/2 lemons)
  • 2 cups whole milk


  1. Step 1

    Place strawberries in a large bowl. Using a potato masher, mash strawberries, and set aside.

  2. Step 2

    Place bananas and sugar in a medium bowl. Using the potato masher, mash until smooth.

  3. Step 3

    Add banana mixture to strawberries, and mix well. Stir in orange juice, lemon juice, and milk. Divide the mixture among four metal ice-cube trays, about 2 cups per tray. The sherbet can also be poured into a 9-by-13-inch glass baking dish and placed in freezer. Stir every 30 minutes until frozen, about 4 hours.

    This makes a very large amount of frozen product. If you want you can freeze it in 3 oz. paper or plastic Dixie cups with a plastic spoon or paper Popsicle stick instead of in an ice tray. It is very flavorful and health-wise. I substitute a calorie free sugar substitute for the sugar so it is perfect for dieting, additionally.
