How to Make orange sherbet in orange shells


  1. put coconut in a small, dry skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir until coconut is browned and toasted, watching carefully to avoid Browning. It turns brown quickly. Let cool.

  3. Fill clear glass dessert dishes with crushed ice. Place each filled orange shell on top of ice. Sprinkle sherbet with toasted coconut. Place mint sprigs around oranges for garnish. Serve at once. Serves six.
