  1. This looks really good and maybe it might be nice with yogurt instead of cream? I just picked up an ice cream maker at a garage sale so I’m going to start using it and this looks really nice and refreshing.

  2. This sounds so utterly lovely and fresh. Cheers to you for mid-winter sherbert making, I’ve been making ice cream all winter.

  3. @kickpleat, The whipped cream lends a lot of lightness to the sherbet, but I think your could sub in yogurt if you used a lighter, strained variety (like skirr). The double tang would be fantastic.
    @Dana, Thanks! So glad to know I’m not the only winter ice cream maker.

  4. I need to make this. I like the yogurt idea too. :)

    I tried this today – everyone loved it – perfect for a hot summer day.
    I picked this recipe because it used a bit of cream, different from a lot of the other sherbets which called for egg whites. The cream seemed more appealing.
    Also I added about 1/3tsp guar gum per quart of mix as an emulsifier, to make it smoother.
    (The usual rate is around 1tsp/qt.)
    Then I froze it in a Donvier ice cream maker which froze it quite well.

    Is that really the right photo above ? That one has more of a coffee color on all the screens I’ve viewed it on, whereas my sherbet turned out more the expected light pink.

      Hi Kent, Glad to hear you liked the recipe, and thanks for sharing your recipe modifications! My sherbet did turn out to be more of a tan/orange color as opposed to pink. I assume it has to do with the color of the grapefruits. The color of yours sounds gorgeous!
