Sherbet, a frozen treat made with fruit juice or a simple syrup with fruit flavoring and fruit puree as well as cream or milk, is a fruit-based dessert that's easy to whip up at home with a high-speed blender and ice cream maker. The sweet fruit flavor of sherbet melts quickly on the tongue, coating the tongue with it refreshing essence (which is why its also used as a palate cleanser between courses in multi-course formal dining). Not quite as rich and thick as ice cream or gelato, but with a hint of creaminess that allows the fruit to linger for a bit in your mouth, sherbet can be confused with sorbet—another fruit-forward frozen treat that's made of fruit and sugar or simple syrup without any cream, milk, or milk alternative.
Our sherbet recipe uses equal amounts of mango and pineapple chunks blended with our Pineapple Mango Collagen Quench, a collagen supplement made with real fruit powders. Instead of milk or cream, we used coconut cream. To get coconut cream, use unsweetened full-fat canned coconut milk: Scoop the velvety, thick coconut cream that sits at the top of the can. Don't stir in the water that lies underneath the cream, just take a spoon and scrape off the creamy top. Our four-ingredient frozen sherbet recipe comes takes 25 minutes to prep, and with another 20 minutes to set in the freezer, you can have a kid-approved dessert ready in less than an hour.

Time: 45 minutes
- 1 cup pineapple chunks (fresh or frozen)
- 1 cup mango chunks (fresh or frozen)
