Kool-Aid Sherbet 

I love making classic desserts like this one. This recipe came from an old church cookbook just like this Kool-Aid Slushie Recipe, Pistachio Fluff, and Chocolate Sauce Recipe

I have always loved sherbet over ice cream. I prefer the refreshing fruity flavor over creamy desserts. 

Sherbert isn’t only a fun summer treat. It’s always a staple at holiday parties. What fun would punch be without sherbet floating around?

  • 1 cup 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 my Kitchen-Aid mixing bowl to mix and freeze the ingredients. This way, there is no transferring of ingredients and less mess to clean up. 
  • The reason for partially freezing and 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.
