Reviews forSunshine Sherbet
"This is absolutely delicious sherbet! I don't know why someone who hasn't even tried it is rating it when they have no idea what it tastes like. I discovered the recipe in a TOH magazine a number of years ago and have been making it ever since. I crave it in the summertime!"
"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!"
"In case yiou don't know,sherbet does not have heavy cream in it,just milk,sugar and fruit juice. it shouild not be called sherbet."
