2 Ingredient Orange Sherbet

Please share

This homemade orange sherbet recipe only takes two simple ingredients to make. It is a cool, refreshing, and super fun summer treat!

If you are looking for a fun and easy frozen dessert, you are in the right place! This simple orange sherbet is made from orange soda and condensed milk.

It doesn’t get much easier than that!

Little Dude is a sucker for frozen desserts. He loves eating popsicles and ice cream, even when there is snow on the ground.

Of course, those cravings are even stronger when it gets hot outside. He often comes in all sweaty, asking if there is anything in the freezer that he can have.

So when I saw this recipe, I knew he would love to make it.

The original recipe I saw called for two liters of pop. I knew that wouldn’t fit in our ice cream maker, do I cut it back.

Besides, with less soda, the final product would be a little creamier. You could easily get away with even less, 4-5 cups would be good too.

We used orange Fanta this time, but whatever your favorite is will work fine. Of course, you can use other flavors of soda besides orange.

I think strawberry would be good and Little Dude can’t wait to try root beer. Almost anything goes here.

The sherbet does freeze a little bit hard. So it is easier to scoop if you set it on the counter for a few minutes first.

It tastes delicious, though, and will satisfy your cravings.

If you like the idea of making your own sherbet, try making homemade strawberry sherbet or some tangy key lime sherbet. Both recipes are a little more traditional than this soda based one, but they are still super simple.

Or whip up some lemon lime sherbet bars with some store bought sherbet. The layers of goodness are as pretty as they are delicious.

Have fun experimenting with different flavors of soda.
If you don’t have an ice cream maker, you can make this like you would a granita. Pour it into a large container and put it in the freezer. Break it up with a fork every half hour or so until it is completely frozen, then just store it in the freezer until you are ready to enjoy it.
