Sunshine Sherbet Recipe

Publisher Photo
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. -Barbara Looney, Fort Knox, Kentucky

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 6, 2013

"Love the sweetness of fruit in ice cream! BTW, the other person submitting a review was wrong: sherbet is basically like ice cream but uses fruit juices, sometimes sweetened, as the flavor base. Sorbet and gelato do not contain dairy products!"
