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.

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.
