Angela's notes for this recipe:
My mother-in-law,Betty, made this out of a 1950's orange juice advertisement she got in the mail. I updated it by using an ice cream freezer and not freezer trays. This sherbet is easy and so cool and refreshing on a hot day. Only has 4 ingredients !

This is one of the creamiest orange sherbets I have ever enjoyed! Great for kids of all ages.


Open evaporated milk and put in freezer until ice crystals begin to form around the edges.
In a separate bowl combine last 3 ingredients and have them ready to add to whipped milk.
Turn the iced milk into well chilled mixer bowl and whip with beaters until stiff.
Add the last three ingredients very slowly, 1 TBS at a time to whipped milk.
Whip until very stiff.
Pour into prepared ice cream machine and process according to your freezers directions. *The original 1950's recipe says pour into freezer tray and freeze till firm. If you do not have access to an ice cream maker you may do this also.
Makes 1 1/4 quarts

Katie, I think this would be perfect for a nice hot afternoon by the pool. It is really refreshing and all the whipping that you do in the recipe makes for a very light and creamy result. I hope you enjoy it as much as my family always has. Blessings
