17 Homemade Sherbet Recipes (Easy Desserts)

Once you make these sherbet recipes at home, you’ll never go back to store-bought. 

Sherbet is a refreshing cross between icy sorbet and decadent ice cream.

Although it does have some creamy elements, it’s still possible for it to be made dairy-free.

These sherbet recipes use creamy ingredients from heavy cream or coconut milk to Greek yogurt and sweetened condensed milk. 

This list is full of variety. There are so many fruits to make sherbet with.

You can even combine flavors to make your own version of rainbow sherbet. 

Skip going out for ice cream tonight and make these recipes at home!

1. Orange Sherbet

Orange sherbet is a sweet and tangy dessert that’s refreshing and delightful. 

For this recipe, you’ll need orange juice, fresh squeezed or natural but make sure there’s no added sugar.

The sugar in the recipe is plenty and any more would make this treat overly sweet. 

Add some vanilla extract for that creamsicle flavor and churn it in an ice cream maker.

2. Raspberry Sherbet

Raspberry is one of my all-time favorite fruits, so it’s safe to say that I adore this sherbet recipe. 

Coconut milk makes this a vegan sherbet and adds some tropical flavor notes that go so well with the fresh raspberries. 

Bright pink in color, this sherbet will please any fruity dessert lover.

With only four simple ingredients, you can easily churn this out to satisfy a craving or prepare for guests.

3. Blueberry Sherbet

When blueberry season hits, this sherbet is a must!

It’s cool, sweet, and ideal for summer. Blueberry sherbet isn’t a common flavor in grocery stores, so making it at home is a special treat. 

You’ll love the blueberry flavor, and the heavy cream and yogurt make it extra creamy.

Serve this gorgeous sherbet with even more blueberries or a sprinkle of granola for crunch. 

4. Homemade Strawberry Sherbet

Strawberry sherbet is a classic flavor with a homemade touch. 

If you’re looking for a perfect summer or spring treat that everybody will love, here it is. Who can resist fresh strawberry flavors? 

Kids and adults will all go crazy for this sweet and creamy dessert

5. Coconut Sherbet

Coconut sherbet will instantly transport you to a tropical vacation of your dreams. 

If you love coconut flavors, you have to make this creamy dessert. It’s the best vegan ice cream around. It’s heavenly. 

Coconut milk, coconut cream, coconut water, and sugar combine to create an island paradise you don’t want to miss out on. 

You can even try this recipe with coconut sugar for a pure coconut experience!

6. Lime Sherbet

Limes are fantastic when you want a treat that will make you pucker. 

This creamy, sweet-tart dessert is palate pleasing and so tasty. You can’t go wrong with fresh lime juice and zest! 

For all the sour candy lovers out there, this sherbet will easily be a favorite. 

Make this tart recipe along with the coconut sherbet for a sweet and sour duo that’s pure deliciousness. 

7.  2 Ingredient Peach Sherbet 

Peach sherbet with only two ingredients can’t get any easier or tastier.

You don’t even need an ice cream machine for this no-churn recipe!

Start with frozen peaches, as it takes all the work out of peeling and slicing them yourself.

Throw them into a blender, then add sweetened condensed milk and blend away. 

All you need to do is pour your sherbet mixture into a container and freeze.

The waiting is the hardest part but once it’s frozen, it’s so worth it!

8. Lemon Sherbet 

Lemon sherbet is another tangy and creamy dessert that’s irresistible any time of year. 

Fresh lemon juice and sugar marinate together to create a super bright syrup.

From there, you just add in heavy cream and milk and freeze! 

This is such a simple recipe, you can make it with fairly little notice.

It’s perfect for hot summer days when you need something to keep cool. 

9. Rainbow Sherbet 

Rainbow sherbet is classically made with orange, lime, and raspberry flavors.

It may seem complicated, but it’s surprisingly easy and even better than anything you’ve had before. 

The tart lime, sweet raspberry, and citrusy orange go so well together.

This recipe is unmatched, and you’ll want to keep some of it in your freezer at all times. 

10. 5-Ingredient Raspberry Peach Sherbet

Raspberry and peach is an incredible duo. 

The flavors are absolutely divine and with only five ingredients, this recipe is a cinch to make. 

I would totally make this sherbert for a summer dinner party or to end a fun game night.

It’s easy, insanely good and, it’s guaranteed to become your new favorite recipe. 

11. Cherry Sherbet

Cherries are one of my absolute favorite fruits and I have never seen cherry sherbet in stores before. You have to make this one at home. 

This festive dessert is wonderful any time of year. However, the color makes a lovely holiday dessert.

12. Kool-Aid Sherbet Ice Cream

Kool-Aid sherbet is a kid’s (and the kids at heart) dream! 

Use your favorite flavor of Kool-Aid for this recipe or you can theme the colors to a party or holiday.

Whatever you choose, it’s sure to be a sugary delight that will keep you cool and refreshed. 

This is definitely a very sweet sherbet, but it’s so fun and easy to make!

13. Iced Coffee and Almond Sherbet

For a more sophisticated sherbet, the iced coffee and almond flavors in this dessert will have you wanting ice cream for breakfast. 

The hardest part of this recipe is making or finding the best iced coffee possible.

The better the coffee, the better the recipe will turn out. 

With the addition of sliced almonds for crunch and flavor, this iced coffee and almond sherbet will make any day a little brighter. 

14. No-Churn Hibiscus Sherbet

Hibiscus is a wonderful flavor, and if you’ve never tried it, this is the time. 

Sweetened condensed milk helps take the churning out of this process so this recipe is super easy to make. 

Dried hibiscus flowers give a subtle floral flavor while ginger adds some spice and lime gives it a little bit of tartness. 

This is a well-thought-out recipe that will impress anybody you serve it to. 

15. Blood Orange Sorbet

When blood orange season hits, I run to the stores or farmer’s markets. 

The integrity of the oranges is really preserved in this recipe since all you need is blood orange juice, lemon juice, and sugar. 

They have a gorgeous color that should not be overlooked so this sherbet is a fantastic way to showcase it. 

You can (and should) try this recipe with champagne or white wine mixed in for a boozy treat. 

16. Tropical Sherbet Punch

I have distant memories of sherbet punch from those fancy parties my friends used to throw when I was a kid.

I was so impressed that there was ice cream floating in our drinks that I still remember it to this day. 

The tropical juices and bubbly ginger ale combine and slowly melt the pineapple sherbert.

This makes everything slightly creamy and super fruity. 

Punch is always great for parties, and this tropical sherbet punch is even better.

17. 5-Minute Strawberry Pineapple Sherbet

Strawberry pineapple sherbet that’s quick, easy, and healthy? I’m SO in!

This recipe is simple but surprisingly delicious and healthy.

With protein-packed Greek yogurt, the bright strawberry and tart pineapple get a creamy makeover. 

Combine frozen fruit, Greek yogurt, honey for sweetness, and a dash of vanilla extract and blend until it’s all smooth and creamy. 

Enjoy this immediately or freeze and love it later.
