This orange sherbet recipe is simple and sweet. It just might remind you of a great orange Creamsicle because of the combination of fresh-squeezed juice with milk and heavy cream. Although you can use just milk in this recipe, the addition of the whipped cream will incorporate more air and creaminess to the finished sherbet.


  • 2 cups fresh-squeezed orange juice

  • 1 tablespoon orange zest

  • 1 cup granulated sugar, divided

  • 1/2 cup heavy cream

  • 1/2 cup milk


In a medium bowl, mix together the orange juice, zest, and 2/3 cup of the sugar until the sugar has dissolved.

In a separate bowl, use a whisk or hand mixer to whip the heavy cream and the remaining 1/3 cup sugar until the cream is thick and forms soft peaks.

Stir the milk into the orange mixture.

Gently fold the whipped cream into the orange mixture.

Refrigerate the sherbet base for at least 1 hour until chilled. Churn according to the directions for your ice-cream maker.

The churned sherbet will have the texture of soft-serve ice cream. Freeze the sherbet in an airtight plastic container for a firmer texture or if you do not plan on eating it right away. Enjoy.

Tip: For a richer, creamier sherbet, increase the cream to 3/4 cup and decrease the milk to 1/4 cup.
