For a show-stopping spring or summer dessert, serve this colorful, refreshing "cake." This recipe takes a little time to prepare, but it's a beautiful and delicious creation. Family members often request it for their birthdays. —Paula Wipf, Arlington, Virginia
"The recipe for this frosty treat is more than 30 years old, and kids love it," reports Elizabeth Stanton of Mt. Vernon, Washington. You'd never guess that powdered soft drink mix provides the yummy flavor.
"Tart and fruity, this wonderfully light and frosty dessert is a delight for the eyes and taste buds," assures field editor Marsha Ransom of South Haven, Michigan. "I love its sunny yellow color and the juicy bits of pineapple."
One spoonful of the cool, fresh-tasting and delicious treat and you'll never eat store-bought lime sherbet again! It's terrific following a heavy meal, on a hot summer day or anytime your taste buds are bored.
Meet the Cook: Together, my mother and I "invented" this recipe. Warm, humid evenings in Georgia, where I grew up, were all the inspiration we needed! It became a favorite part of gatherings with family and friends. After I got married, my boys and their pals would all be there when the sherbet left the freezer.
My husband and I have six children, 31 and 13, and four grandchildren.

This easy-to-make sherbet is the best way I know to enjoy the taste of fresh strawberries all year long. It's also a very pretty dessert—the perfect way to end a meal. My husband says it's better than any store bought ice cream!
"This refreshing summer dessert was served at a baby shower I attended," writes Shirley Colvin of Tremonton, Utah. "It was so delicious I asked the hostess to share her secret. I couldn't believe it was made with only three ingredients, and was low-fat as a bonus."
