You will never want store-bought Orange Sherbet again after trying this easy and delicious homemade recipe! Only 5 ingredients.
Do you guys remember the Flintstones Push Pops?
I just had to google them to make sure I didn’t make them up. But I have these weird memories that only kind of make sense of staying with my kindergarten teacher in the summers (she had a pool!) and we’d walk to the gas station close to her house for a treat on Fridays and I’d always go for the Flintstones Push Pops.
Or candy cigarettes. The 90’s were weird, man.
Do you have memories like that? Where you wonder if you made it all up? I was so young but I have all sorts of fuzzy memories like sitting in her kitchen and listening to the rain on their tin roof while she made fried chicken.
This Orange Sherbet made me think of those Flintstones Push Pops.
- Granulated sugar
- Oranges – you are going to use the zest and the juice of the oranges. And you’re going to need a lot. I think I went through an entire bag of oranges but it will be worth it, I promise.
- Salt – just a little bit to bring out all the flavor.
- Vanilla – don’t skip the vanilla! It gives it that less bit extra.
- Whole milk – the milk makes it creamy and delicious but not as heavy as an ice craem made with heavy cream or eggs.
How To Make Orange Sherbet
- Combine all ingredients. Whisk together sugar, orange zest, salt, orange juice, and vanilla until sugar is dissolved. Whisk in milk.
- Chill. Cover and chill for 1 hour.
- Freeze. Freeze in ice cream maker according to manufacturer’s instructions.
Homemade sherbet is best if eaten within a week of freezing. It will stay fine to eat for longer but the quality will start to go downhill.
Make sure to store it in the freezer in an airtight, freezer-safe container.
