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.
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.
