Orange Goat Milk Sherbet Recipe

This sherbet recipe uses only goat milk and water for the liquids, making it lower in fat and calories than traditional goat milk ice cream. It's not low on taste, though! Light and flavorful, it's the perfect finish to a summer meal, or a simple mid-day treat. The recipe below is for a 4-quart freezer.

Homemade goat milk sherbet


  • 2 quarts whole goat milk
  • 6 oz. sweetened orange gelatin mix
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice (or the juice from two lemons)
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 cups water
  • optional--1 can mandarin oranges, finely chopped

Bring water to a boil in a saucepan. Remove from heat, and add gelatin and sugar, stirring well with a whisk until dissolved. Add lemon juice, and let mixture cool in the refrigerator, or by placing in a larger pan of ice water.

Add goat milk, stir well, and freeze according to your ice cream maker's directions.

A fresh mint leaf, orange slice, or curled orange peel makes a beautiful garnish for this simple, but divine dessert.

The next time you want a lighter ice cream recipe, think sherbet! You can easily substitute other flavored gelatins and fruit to make your favorite; lemon, lime and cherry are all great choices.
