Homemade Orange Sherbet:

A favorite treat at our house:

This is super easy! And made from only 3 ingredients!
*1 can evaporated milk
 *1 can frozen orange juice
 *1/2 cup sugar

Chill one can of evaporated milk in bowl in the freezer for 30 minutes.
You want it really cold, but not frozen. *Just until ice starts to form in the bowl.
(The colder it is, the quicker it whips up!)

Thaw one can frozen orange juice.

Whip milk until soft peaks form.
Blend in orange juice and 1/2 cup sugar.

Place in the freezer for approx. 2 hours.

-Freeze leftovers in serving size cups for easy-serve.
-Try other flavors with frozen juices, chilled nectar may even work but I haven't tried it yet.
-You may need less sugar with other flavors!
-Also- if the OJ is too strong for your liking, you can add about 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla for a 'creamsicle' taste! 
-Even if you freeze overnight, this doesn't get hard, like ice, it stays soft.

 This picture is made like the orange except I subbed the O.J. for a can of apple-strawberry-kiwi juice with no HFCS. Very good- very doesn't need but about 1/2 the sugar amount!
