Original Sherbet Recipe

A lip-smackingly sweet and sour treat that's perfect for your next party, sherbet is a fantastic dessert that can be enjoyed by people of all ages. It is made from sherbet powder, which is a combination of sugar, citric acid and bicarbonate of soda.

Sherbet is a popular dessert in Australia, and Aeroplane Jelly has an easy to follow sherbet recipe that will ensure you can make this delicious treat at home.

What is Sherbet Actually?

Sherbet is a fizzy, sweet powder that may be eaten by dipping a lollipop or liquorice stick into it, or licking it off of a finger.

What Else Can You Make with Sherbet?

It is also used as a flavouring in some drinks. Sherbet powder can be bought at most supermarkets, and it is also easy to make your own sherbet at home using Aeroplane Jelly's flavoured jelly crystals.

Our sherbet recipe is perfect for hot summer days or afternoon snacks for the kids, and it's also a lot of fun for the whole family to make. Give it a try!

How Else Can You Enjoy Sherbet?

Serving it inside citrus fruit rinds, is another delicious option. Cut oranges in half and take out the flesh but keep it for later consumption. The orange rind halves should resemble tiny bowls. Scoop frozen orange sherbet ice cream into the orange halves and freeze on a baking sheet until you're ready to serve.

Sherbet FAQs

What happens when you mix sherbet and water?

When you put the paste on your tongue, it reacts with the water in your mouth, causing carbon dioxide to be formed. The reaction happens as a result of acids like citric acid being added to water, which release charged hydrogen ions when dissolved.

What is the most popular flavour of sherbet?

The most popular flavors are lime, lemon, and orange.

What is the chemical reaction in sherbet?

The reaction between the citric acid and sodium bicarbonate causes fizzing when eating sherbet. This reaction also creates tiny bubbles of carbon dioxide only when the dry ingredients are wet with saliva in the mouth.

What flavour is rainbow sherbet?

Rasberry, pineapple and orange flavoured sherbets.

What is sherbet ice cream?

Basically, sherbet ice cream is a tarter relative of traditional ice cream. It has a pastel colour and rich creamy texture, but is usually more 'tart' in flavour than normal ice cream because of the citric acid ingredient. If you've tried sorbet and ice cream, be sure to try sherbet ice cream next!
