This was a favorite dessert at Thanksgiving and Christmas when we all gathered at Grandma's house - the holidays weren't complete without her delicious homemade sherbet. I remember those days fondly whenever I make it.
Seeing a beautiful rainbow after a storm is always a thrill, and my brother was delighted with his colorful sherbet dessert. Served along with the birthday cake, it put a refreshing finishing touch on the climate-conscious menu.

My husband, two daughters and I first enjoyed this refreshing treat at our friends' house. They graciously shared the recipe after we all raved about it. The sherbet is always popular at ice cream socials.
This recipe was handwritten in a booklet that came with my family's first refrigerator in the early 1940s. I was very young at the time, but I can still remember the iceman delivering huge blocks of ice. Since finding the booklet among my mother's things, I make this refreshing dessert often.

"Simple and refreshing, this dressed-up sherbet is a real treat in the heat of summer," assures Rhonda Robertson of Casper, Wyoming. "I often serve it on special occasions, too, and in late winter, when everyone's eager for spring. With only four ingredients, it's a breeze to make."
Talk about a dessert that pops. Sometimes, I make this easy cake even more eye-catching by coloring the whipped cream, too. Use whatever sherbet flavor combination you like. —Bonnie Hawkins, Elkhorn, Wisconsin
