What is Sherbert (you might be thinking…) ?

Sherbet is not quite ice cream and not quite sorbet. It is made with fruit and water, but also has the addition of dairy—usually milk or buttermilk. This gives it a slightly creamier texture than sorbet, as well as a lighter, pastel color.

Mine is made with THREE Ingredients!
Freshly Squeezed Red Ruby Grapefruit Juice, Coconut Milk & Pure Cane Sugar.

Vegan – Coconut Milk replaces the usual dairy milk… and the taste: no strong coconut flavor (but I love toasted coconut on top for some crunch!)

My Grapefruit Sherbert is tart ~ and I’m loving it this way!
Sure, it could be a palate cleanser, but I find it totally refreshing as a light dessert after dinner.

Enjoy this special zesty sherbert!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup red ruby grapefruit juice freshly squeezed
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon red ruby grapefruit pulp*
  • 1 cup coconut milk not "lite" (I use organic)
  • 1/2 cup pure cane sugar I use organic

Optional Toasted Coconut Topping:

  • 1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut** toasted, I use organic

Instructions

  • Add the coconut milk and sugar to a small pot, set to low heat. Stir over a simmer until the sugar is just dissolved, about 3 minutes.
  • Remove from heat. Add to a medium sized bowl to fit. Add the grapefruit juice and pulp. Cool. Cover tightly and refrigerate until very cold or overnight.
  • Process in an ice cream machine until firm. Scoop into a pint container, will have a little extra. Freeze and enjoy!
  • ** A nice touch: Add toasted coconut on top of the sherbert! Add to a parchment lined baking sheet and bake in a 300 degree oven until just golden, about 6 minutes. Keep an eye on it, can darken quickly!

Notes

*Red Ruby Grapefruit Pulp: Remove pulp from grapefruit half after you squeeze for juice. Use a fork to separate the pulp, with no white membrane pieces - adds great texture.
Freezing the Sherbert Without an Ice Cream Machine: Pour the cold sherbet mixture into a metal pan so it freezes faster, cover with plastic wrap, and place in the freezer for about four hours or until firm. Stir the mixture ever 30 - 45 minutes to break up any large ice crystals that may have formed. Then, transfer the sherbet to a container and store in the freezer.
