"I used rainbow sherbet, too. I also used light Country Crock instead of butter and reduced fat Nilla wafers. It turned out great with lower fat!"

"I couldn't find lemon sherbert, so I used rainbow sherbert,(orange, raspberry, and lime). Everyone loved it. I also used low fat vanilla wafers, lowering the calories."

"Absolutely delicious. Didn't change a thing. I've made it twice since last week. This one is a keeper. My husband has to have dessert with his dinner but they need to be light, low fat & low sugar."
