Orange Berry Sherbet Recipe
Fresh berries are always available in summer, and the following Orange Berry Sherbet is luscious and not-too-sweet. You can use any fresh berries you happen to have around, or you can substitute fresh peeled peaches; a combination of fruits is ideal. Sherbet is similar to ice cream, but it is generally lower in fat, since milk or buttermilk is used rather than cream or half and half. Usually sherbet comes in fruit flavors, and the addition of real fruit makes for a very refreshing finished product. You can experiment with different fruits to find what you and your family or friends like best. Orange Berry Sherbet is actually "Bikini Friendly," and only contains one gram of fat and minimal calories for what tastes like a very rich dessert.
