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.
You’ll wonder why you’ve never made this delicious concoction before once you try this simple Kool-aid sherbet recipe… it takes any flavor of unsweetened Kool-Aid that you prefer and transforms it into a creamy frozen sherbet treat that is loaded with flavor!
Create various flavors and combine them atop each other in a cone, such as orange and lime for a spectacular taste-bud pleasing treat any time of year. What I love best about this recipe is that it takes very few ingredients and doesn’t require any special equipment to throw it together.
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 half & half and pour into ice cream maker, process according to manufacturers directions on your machine.
If you don’t have an ice cream maker, no worries, you don’t need one! Simply pour into a dish ( large loaf pan works great!) and place in the freezer.
Remove from freezer after 1 hour, blend well with a blender until smooth and return to freezer for 20 minutes or so.
Please note, if using milk, it will have an “icy” texture rather than a smooth sherbet texture.
