Tips on Making Lemon Sherbet

In case you’re still wondering what is sherbet, it is a chilled sugar and liquid mixture flavored with fruit. Sherbet also contains a dairy component such as milk or cream, that’s why it has more of a pale pastel color. What makes this sherbet lemon recipe stand out is the use of cream cheese and light corn syrup. The result is creamier and silkier. Here are helpful tips on how to make lemon sherbet:

  • Meyer lemons are the sweetest among all varieties. You might need to adjust the amount of sweetener, which in this case is light corn syrup, if you happen to use those. So it’s best to add little by little and taste as you go.
  • Use an ice cream maker if you have it. It gives the best texture. However, if it’s not available, you can still make a batch of lemon sherbet ice cream using things you already have on hand.
  • Place the sherbet in an aluminum or glass container so that it freezes faster. But you can also use a plastic container.
  • Top the cheesy sherbet with toasted sliced almonds, shredded coconut, or sliced strawberries. These flavors go well with lemon and cream cheese.
