Orange sherbet is simple to make and much tastier than store-bought! This creamy nostalgic recipe is full of tangy flavor.


  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 pinch kosher salt
  • 2 1/2 cups orange juice (100% natural juice or fresh squeezed)*
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup whole milk


Note: Make sure the base of the ice cream maker is frozen overnight before making this recipe.

  1. In a pitcher, whisk together the sugar, kosher salt, and orange juice until dissolved. Stir in the lemon juice, vanilla extra and whole milk.
  2. 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 orange 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.


*Want to punch up the orange flavor even more? Add 1/2 teaspoon orange zest and blend all ingredients in a blender prior to churning.
