Indulge in the refreshing citrusy delight of homemade Orange Sherbet, a fun and easy treat that’s sure to brighten any day. With just a few simple ingredients and minimal effort, you can create a creamy, tangy sherbet that’s bursting with vibrant orange flavor.

Start by gathering your ingredients: fresh oranges for their juicy zest and vibrant color, sugar for sweetness, and heavy cream for richness. You’ll also need a splash of lemon juice to balance the sweetness and enhance the citrusy tang.

Begin by zesting and juicing the oranges, being sure to reserve some of the zest for garnish. In a blender or food processor, combine the orange juice, zest, sugar, lemon juice, and heavy cream, then blend until smooth and creamy.

Once your sherbet base is ready, transfer it to a shallow dish or ice cream maker and freeze until it reaches your desired consistency. If you’re using an ice cream maker, simply follow the manufacturer’s instructions for churning.

After a few hours in the freezer, your Orange Sherbet will be ready to enjoy! Scoop it into bowls or cones, garnish with a sprinkle of orange zest for an extra burst of flavor, and savor every spoonful of its creamy, citrusy goodness.

Whether you’re hosting a summer barbecue, cooling off after a day in the sun, or simply craving a sweet and refreshing treat, homemade Orange Sherbet is sure to hit the spot. So gather your ingredients, whip up a batch, and get ready to delight in the simple joy of homemade sherbet that’s as fun to make as it is to eat!

  • 2 cups orange crush soda pop or orange juice (freshly squeezed or store-bought)
  • 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
  • Optional: orange zest or orange slices for garnish
1. Ensure that the orange juice is cooled down before starting the recipe.
2. In a large bowl, combine the orange juice and sweetened condensed milk.
3. Use an electric mixer or a paddle attachment to blend the mixture thoroughly until smooth and well combined.
4. For an extra burst of orange flavor, consider adding a teaspoon of orange zest to the mixture. Mix it in well.
5. Pour the blended mixture into a freezer-safe bowl or loaf pan. Make sure the container has enough space to accommodate the mixture while allowing room for expansion.
6. Cover the container with a lid or plastic wrap to prevent ice crystals from forming on the surface. Place the container in the freezer.
7. Allow the sorbet mixture to freeze and solidify for at least 6 hours, or preferably overnight.
8. When you’re ready to enjoy your homemade orange sherbet, remove the container from the freezer and let it sit at room temperature for a few minutes. This will soften the sorbet slightly, making it easier to scoop.
9. Scoop the orange sherbet into bowls or cones for serving.
10. If you’d like, you can enhance the presentation by garnishing the sherbet with a sprinkle of orange zest or a slice of fresh orange.
