Easy to make Kool-Aid Sherbert Recipe for a fun summer treat. 

  • Author: Melissa
  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time: 4 hours freezing
  • Total Time: 3 minute
  • Yield: 4 servings 1x


  • 1 cup of granulated sugar
  • 1 Kool-Aid flavor packet – your favorite flavor
  • 3 cups of milk (I used 2%)


  • In a medium sized mixing bowl, pour sugar and Kool-Aid packet into milk
  • Stir until dissolved
  • Cover and place in the freezer for about 1 hour – until it is partially firm
  • Using an electric mixer mix the sherbert mixture until smooth
  • Freeze until firm (about 2-4 hours or overnight)


  • I used a my Kitchen-Aid mixing bowl to both mix and freeze the ingredients in. This way there is no transferring of ingredients and less mess to clean up. 
  • The reason for partially freezing and then mixing it until smooth is to give the Sherbert a creamier consistency. You can skip that part if you want. It will have more of an icy texture.
