You don't need an ice cream maker to churn out this pretty light green refresher from Carolyn Hannay of Antioch, Tennessee. The mild lime flavor and frosty consistency make it a perfect summertime treat.
"When my mother-in-law first served this torte, I thought it was the prettiest dessert I ever saw," recalls Betty Tabb of Mifflintown, Pennsylvania. "Not only does it keep well in the freezer, but different flavors of sherbet can be used to reflect the colors of the season."
The sky's the limit with this delicious dessert! Substitute raspberry, pineapple or orange sherbet or replace the mandarin oranges with pineapple tidbits or fresh raspberries. Whipped cream and toasted nuts make tasty toppings.
Icy chunks of fruit add color and interest to this pretty pink alternative to ice cream. "My family and I love this dessert because it's not too sweet and it's so refreshing," explains Robyn Jessop of North Ogden, Utah.

This recipe, however, actually originated with one of the boys. It was published in his Sunday school paper about 10 years ago. First-time tasters comment on how light it is...and say they can't believe it's made with cranberries.
