Lime Sherbet Recipe

Lime Sherbet RecipeSherbet, especially lime sherbet, has always been one of my favorites. It reminds me of going to my Nana and Granddaddy’s. It’s a refreshing and sweet treat, perfect for summertime. They always had a freezer full of sherbet flavors, but I always went for the lime.

Lime is yum.

And even mo’ bettah, it’s quick and easy. All you need is half and half, sugar and limes. Three ingredients, that’s all. Doesn’t get much easier than that.

Lime Sherbet RecipeOf course you’ll need an ice cream maker. We own both an ice it down, add salt kinda churn, as well as a small, indoor, counter top version. For small batches the small, counter top version is perfect. Our Cuisinart Ice Cream/Yogurt/Sorbet Maker works like a charm.

Let’s get this party started. Zest and juice the lime(s).

Combine zest and juice with the half and half, and sugar.

When frozen thick, serve right away or transfer to plastic container, and place in freezer until ready to serve. It’s as simple as that. Frozen yummy goodness!
