Lemon Sherbet

Makes about 1 quart (can be doubled for half-gallon machines)


Here's the easiest sherbet in the book, a no-cook refresher. If you want a classic lemon sherbet, see the variation under Lime Sherbet (page 117 of the book).

One 12-ounce can lemonade concentrate, thawed
One 7-1/2-ounce jar Marshmallow Fluff or Marshmallow Cream
1 cup water

1. Place all the ingredients in a large blender; blend until smooth. Transfer to a medium bowl and refrigerate until cold, for at least 4 hours, or overnight.

2. Freeze in your ice cream machine according to the manufacturer's instructions. Serve at once—or scoop into a large container, seal tightly, and store in the freezer for up to 1 month.

Customize it!
Substitute a 12-ounce can of any of the following, thawed, for the lemonade concentrate: Concord grape juice concentrate, cranberry juice concentrate, frozen daiquiri mix, grapefruit juice concentrate, limeade concentrate, pineapple juice concentrate, raspberry juice concentrate, raspberry-lemonade concentrate, or any tart juice concentrate.
