Old-Fashioned Orange Sherbet

Angela Gray


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 !

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
This is one of the creamiest orange sherbets I have ever enjoyed! Great for kids of all ages.


1 can(s)
evaporated milk 12 oz can
1 can(s)
6 oz can of frozen orange juice concentrate, undiluted
1/2 c
1/8 tsp


1Open evaporated milk and put in freezer until ice crystals begin to form around the edges.
2In a separate bowl combine last 3 ingredients and have them ready to add to whipped milk.
3Turn the iced milk into well chilled mixer bowl and whip with beaters until stiff.
4Add the last three ingredients very slowly, 1 TBS at a time to whipped milk.
5Whip until very stiff.
6Pour 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.
