Lime sherbet combines the ingredients of lime sorbet with dairy, in the form of milk or heavy cream. You get to keep the sweet and tart fruit flavor of the sorbet while adding the smoothness of ice cream. Citrus fruits like lime and orange are classic flavors for sherbet. Try making both of them and swirling them together to make your own rainbow sherbet.
This recipe is a very easy one to put together, so it’s a great introduction to making sherbet. If you can heat up water in a small pan, you can make this recipe.
Gather the ingredients.
Heat granulated sugar and water in a small saucepan, stirring frequently until sugar has completely dissolved.
Remove pan from heat and stir in lime juice and zest. Refrigerate mixture until it is completely chilled.
Stir milk and green food coloring (if using) into lime juice.
Churn sherbet according to directions on ice cream freezer.
Store lime sherbet in an air-tight plastic container in your freezer. Allowing it to set for at least an hour before serving will give you a firmer texture than if you serve it right out of ice cream maker.
- For an adult option, add two tablespoons of tequila. It is a great combination with the lime.
