Lime Sherbet Freeze

Lime Sherbet Freeze

We are big ice cream fans at our house, always have been.  When I was young one of my favorite treats to get at the local drive, The Spot was a “freeze.”  I loved pulling up at the drive-in, having the server come out of her little booth and hook that tray onto our car window.  They made their own root beer so I usually got a root beer freeze.  Their hamburgers were amazing too and every trip I have made back to my hometown since then there is always a stop at The Spot!

Two of my favorite flavors of freezes are orange sherbet freeze and a root beer freeze.  A freeze is a combination of sherbet, ice cream and soda.  It’s blended all together like a milkshake but has an ice- ier texture and taste than a milkshake because it uses soda (usually a lemon lime soda or rootbeer) instead of milk.

Since we are nearing St. Patrick’s Day I decided to make a lime sherbet freeze – green is the color of the season!  But this recipe could be made with any flavor of sherbet.  For a root beer freeze just use vanilla ice cream and root beer soda.  It was so yummy and may just be my new favorite flavor!!  I give away a lot of the treats I make on the blog because if I didn’t I’d be the size of a house. I didn’t give away any of the lime sherbet freeze!.

Lime Sherbet can be a bit tricker to find but I found mine at Fred Meyers.  It’s worth looking for.

I used a 4 to 1 ratio.  4 scoops of sherbet to 1 scoop of ice cream to 1/2 C liquid.  This made two small lime sherbet freezes.  So depending on how many people you are going to feed will depend on how much you need.  The ice cream gives it bit of creaminess too.

Of course the next step is to grab a spoon and dig in.

Nothing beats a cold, icy lime sherbet freeze on a hot summer day or on any day!  Even a gloomy, rainy day like we’re having today in Portland!  It would make a perfect dessert for your St. Patrick’s day feast too.
