I’ve been on a sherbet kick lately. Homemade sherbet is so easy to make, so I’m experimenting with different flavors. Orange Kool-Aid Sherbet is another family favorite and is really popular with all the grandkids. Make sure to check out my kool-aid pie recipes.
This is a 3-ingredient recipe and I usually make it the day before I’m planning on serving it and letting it chill overnight. Homemade sherbet can’t get any easier than this one.
It has finally warmed up here in South Carolina. We had a crazy weird spring. It snowed a few days ago for about an hour. The next day it was 75 degrees. Thankfully, the cold weather has ended and spring has sprung. That means it’s time for homemade sherbets and ice cream.
Orange Kool-Aid Sherbet
To make Orange Kool-Aid Sherbet you will need three ingredients.
- sweetened condensed milk
- sugar-free orange kool-aid
- orange soda
In a large bowl, whisk together the orange kool-aid and sweetened condensed milk. Mix well.
Add two cups of orange soda. Whisk well.
Pour the sherbet mixture into a shallow freezer-proof container.
Cover and freeze for 2 hours or until partially frozen. Remove from the freezer and spoon sherbet into a mixing bowl. Beat with an electric mixer until smooth.
Pour the sherbet back into the shallow container. Cover and return to freezer for a few hours or until frozen.

Mix and Match Flavors
You can make so many different kool-aid sherbet flavors. Just change up the soda to go with your favorite kool-aid flavor.
Next, I want to try grape kool-aid and grape soda. I also want to make watermelon flavored sherbet. I’ll use Sprite or Ginger Ale when I make it and I’ll be sure to share the results. So stay tuned!
Who invented Kool-Aid?
According to Wikipedia, Edwin Perkins invented Kool-Aid in his mom’s kitchen in Hastings, Nebraska. He first invented a liquid concentrate called Fruit Smack. In 1927, to save on shipping costs, he figured out a way to remove the liquid from Fruit Smack. That’s how Kool-Aid was invented.
