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.

Here’s a fun way to serve some refreshing sherbet and a bit of fruit. I like assembling this cute piglet—who’s splashing around in a chocolate “mud puddle”—as a dessert or as a snack for me and my friends.—Sara Martin, Brookfield, Wisconsin
"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."
Priced at a cool 20¢ a bowl, this frozen treat is just as refreshing when it's made with orange or raspberry gelatin. "My family especially enjoys it in the summer," relates Julie Bendenstein of Arcola, Indiana.
"My mother started serving this recipe, doubled for four, a few years ago for Christmas dinner," notes Elissa Armbruster of Medford, New Jersey. "It's a special-occasion favorite that's fancy but light."
Looking to save some time when preparing for a party? Throw together this creamy crowd-pleaser and freeze it a day or two before the event. The combination of raspberry and chocolate in this dessert is delightful, but it's also good made with lime sherbet, vanilla sandwich cookies and walnuts. —Donna Carper, South Jordan, Utah
"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."
