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.
This is one of my favorite recipes. My family and friends love it, so simple yet so good. I had lost the recipe and wanted to make it. thanks.
