Sherbet and Watermelon Boat Recipe

This recipe tastes great and it looks cool and very appealing. Want to know what’s also great about it? It’s a dessert that’s low in milk fat. If you compare it to ice cream that has 10% milkfat, having a few scoops of this fruity sherbet accounts for 1% or 2% milkfat. So enjoy this fruity cream-based dessert without the guilt.
