    • Kool-Aid Sherbet

      Kool Aid Sherbet Create your own creamy smooth fruity sherbet using your favorite flavor of Kool-Aid! This recipe is very simple and makes a great low calorie snack during the hot summer months.

      1 cup sugar
      1 envelope unsweetened kool-aid (any flavor; not artificially sweetened)
      3 cups Half & Half (or milk)
      1/4 c. Water

      In a small saucepan mix kool-aid, water and sugar over medium heat until smooth and sugar is completely dissolved. Remove from heat and cool 10 minutes. Mix with 3 c. of Cold Milk and pour into ice cream maker, process according to manufacturers directions on your machine.

      If you don't have an ice cream maker, pour into a dish and place in the freezer. Remove from freezer after 1 hour, blend well until smooth and return to freezer.

      Please note, if using milk, it will have an "icy" texture rather than a smooth sherbet texture.

        I'll need to try this one...without an ice cream maker.

        I don't have an ice cream maker, but this might be a fun idea for the kids to make. And my step-son's birthday is coming up so that could be something special for him to do.

        Sounds good. I think I will invest in a Ice cream maker this summer.

        My husband and I just made a double batch of the sherbert (strawberry and lemon -lime cheap kool aid). We used half and half and it is so good...it is not weak in flavor. We are planning to serve it at a 4th of July fish fry. We are making a second batch with grape fool aid (cheap kool aid) with milk. I can't wait to sample this sherbert!!!

        I love sherbet but it can be quite expensive for some of the better brands and flavors. I usually go without because it's just cost to much. this is going to be my favorite reciepe I can already tell and I can't wait to try it with the keylime koolaid I found the other day. (my favorite flavor). yummy.

        I just looked at sherbet in the store because my daughter loves it. I didn't buy it because of cost. I am trying this recipe today!

        That sounds good to me! I am going to try to make orange and then mix the finished sherbet with some plain vanilla to make creamsicle!

      These are great ideas for my almost 3 year old. I cannot get him to eat anything. If anyone could share more tips on getting little ones to participate in making their meals, I would really...
