Here is a Lemon Pineapple Sherbet smoothie recipe that brings up the question of just what, exactly, is “sherbet”? Turning to trusty Wikipedia we get this definition”
“Sherbet in the United States must include dairy ingredients such as milk or cream to reach a milkfat content between 1% and 2%. Products with higher milkfat content of 10% or higher are defined as ice cream, while those between 2% and 10% milkfat are termed “frozen dairy dessert”. Its this limited amount of milkfat in sherbet that makes it a bit lighter than ice cream and a much better smoothie ingredient.
To create this tasty Lemon Pineapple Sherbet smoothie, in your favorite blender mix:
- 1 cup (small container) low-fat lemon yogurt
- 2 cups lemonade (Crystal light has no calories)
- 1 1/2 cups frozen pineapple chunks
- 1 cup pineapple frozen sherbet (or sorbet)
- 1 Tbsp. Chia seed
Mix until smooth and enjoy!
