Friday Night Dessert Night #6: Orange Sherbet

     This recipe was so much fun to make! Abby got to squeeze the juice out of 5 oranges. She was ecstatic! We made the sherbet on Wednesday and had to wait until today to eat it, an agonizing lesson in patience for a three-year old but she made it!

Orange Sherbet 


2 cups orange juice from about 5 oranges (pick heavy oranges) 
1/4 sugar 
1 cup whole milk 


1. Squeeze 2 cups of orange juice from the oranges.

2. Add the sugar to the juice and stir until dissolved.

3. Pour juice through a strainer to get all the pulp out.

4. Refrigerate juice for about 3 hours.

5. Add milk and stir until mixed well. 
6. Pour into ice cream maker and turn it on for 20 minutes.

7. Remove from maker and put the sherbet in a freezer container. Let freeze for 3 hours or up to 3 days.


  1. Looks like a fun time, making sherbert and delicious!

  2. Refreshing!!!! Might have to make this one, I enjoy orange sherbet.

  3. Yum! I've been using my ice cream freezer more this year, and this sounds great!
