Lime sherbet is zingy, citrusy and so refreshing! Make it at home and it’s exceedingly better than store-bought.
- 1 cup fresh squeezed lime juice (7 to 8 large limes)*
- ½ tablespoon lime zest
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup ice
- 1 cup whole milk
- 2 drops green food coloring (optional)
Note: Make sure the base of the ice cream maker is frozen overnight before making this recipe.
- Place the lime juice, lime zest, sugar and ice in a blender and blend until sugar is dissolved. Stir in the whole milk and food coloring.
- Pour the mixture into an ice cream maker and churn for 20 to 25 minutes, until the texture becomes frosty and creamy. Line a container with parchment paper and add the sherbet. Place it in the freezer and freeze for 2 hours to allow it to come to a scoopable texture. Store in a parchment lined sealed container for up to 1 week; allow to come to room temperature for about 10 minutes before scooping.
