Homemade Kool-Aid Sherbet

Amy Alusa


This is a fun, inexpensive and low calorie snack or dessert for hot days and nights in the summertime!
Remember you want to use the Kool-Aid that is UNSWEETENED. If you are calorie conscious, you will want to use milk instead of Half and Half. The difference being the fat content, and you will have more of an ice texture to your desert. Half and Half in the dessert yields a creamy sherbet texture, along with the calories. It's always a trade off, eh?! We like it both ways...depending on who you talk to in the family!
