The Easiest Frozen Lemonade Ever May 17, 2016

What are your feelings about frozen lemonade?  As a lifelong citrus lover, I am a HUGE fan; I like it tart with a hint of sweet.  A few years ago, we tried some frozen lemonade pops from Minute Maid that were just perfect.  I never really thought about making them at home, but a couple weeks ago I tried a recipe that turned out to taste just like them.  With only 3 ingredients, it’s super easy to make and only requires a few minutes of hands on time.  The recipe calls it sorbet, but I think that’s a bit of a misnomer, since sorbet’s are supposed to be all fruit and no dairy.  Technically, I think that makes this a sherbet, but either way it’s so delicious.

Lemon Buttermilk Sorbet (from Buzzfeed)

1 1/2 c. sugar

1/2 c. lemon juice (from 5-6 lemons)

2 tbsp. lemon zest

4 c. buttermilk

I know that looks like 4 ingredients, but 2 of them come from the lemons, so it’s really 3.  😉

  1. In a medium bowl, stir together the sugar, lemon juice, and lemon zest.  Add the buttermilk and stir til the sugar dissolves.  Place in the fridge and chill til cold, about 4 hours.
  2. Once cold, process according to your ice cream maker’s instructions.  Once processed, put in a container and freeze til firm.

So, what do you think, would you call it a sherbet or a sorbet?
