Home Made Sherbet

It has been hot here in the Carolina's. This mean lots of cold treats. Like sherbet for example.
I admit I'm more of an Ice Cream eater over sherbet. My husband on the other hand, prefers sherbet.

My favorite sherbet flavor is Orange. I remember many years ago back in elementary school, they had an ice cream cart visit each room once a week. The kids would line up to purchase their favorite ice cream. I loved the Orange Push ups. I also like the Nutty Buddies, but there was just something refreshing about the sweet orange creamy sherbet.

Yesterday I thought I was going to have to have a tooth extraction and would want something cold to eat so I pulled out a bag of mixed berries and made my own sherbet to enjoy for my late night snack.
I ended up not needing an extraction but I still have a delicious snack.

It was so easy to make....

Just kidding, I had a mess with no end as I had berries everywhere. My blender was not strong enough to mix the frozen berries so I moved them to the food processor and that didn't work either. I then found a more powerful blender that I had stored away and it worked. Wheeew. I had a mess and three appliances to clean up.

So, if you have a powerful blender, this sherbet is easy to make.

Home Made Berry Sherbet

1 bag frozen of mixed berries (approx 2 1/2 cups).
2 tsp fresh lemon juice.
2 Tbs honey
3 Tbs warm water as needed to mix. 

Place all ingredients in high speed mixer.
Pulse until smooth and creamy.

I enjoyed my sherbet in a waffle bowl. As it melted, it coated the bowl with sweetness. 


  1. With the exception of all the clean-up, it sounds easy enough.

  2. I’ve never made serbert. Looks and sounds delish! xo

  3. ahhhh, brings back memories of us cousins congregating at the grandparents after church on Sundays in the summer, cranking the homemade icecream bucket...ohhhh the headaches...the memories

  4. This sounds like the perfect dessert to cool off!

  5. I am the sherbet eater in our family. it does sound good. I loved the orange push ups also. Vanilla Ice cream and orange sherbet is still my favorite dessert methinks. WAIT other than butter-pecan Ice cream. LOL Hot in NC? also hot up here in Pennsylvania. We head back that way the first of the week.

  6. Oh my goodness I am making it What a great healthier treat Thanks a lot beautiful xoxo Cris
