Does anyone make sherbet?

I want to make lemon sherbet. All the recipes I have found have milk, cream, or coconut milk. I know that the addition of dairy is what makes it sherbet and not sorbet. But, they all use a lot of dairy. Is that right? I want lemon sherbet, not lemon ice cream.

I decided to go ahead an try one of the sherbet recipes I found using Google. Lemon Sherbet Recipe - Yankee Magazine

Yup, that was sherbet. It's delicious. It may be a tad creamier than the sherbets I remember, but it is close enough.

Glad it came out well for you. I've thought about making sherbet from time to time but never have.

Sounds yummy. I bet it would also work with the True Lemon powder that Janet H mentioned previously.

I didn't realize that sherbet contained dairy.

I always thought it was made with egg whites and simple syrup similar to this recipe.

‘Old school’ Raspberry sorbet (prepared with Italian meringue)

Sherbet reminds me of my Grandmother and her summer parties, baby showers, etc...

I've never made sherbet but let me add one of my favorite summer drinks....
one part of lime sherbet with two parts of buttermilk blended. I don't drink plain buttermilk, but blended with lime sherbet, it's wonderful.

I make sherbet and one of our favorites is cantaloupe. Delicious and it's frozen in the scooped out shell of the cantaloupe. Nice presentation, too.

That does sound like a nice presentation (and it saves on dishwashing). Do you mind sharing your recipe?

I'll be happy to share it but I'll have to look for it in my cookbook. Won't get to it today, but I promise I'll post it some time tomorrow.
