Coconut Milk Lemon Sherbet [Giveaway]

Dessert, Frozen Desserts, Giveaway, Kid Friendly Recipes | 139 comments

This giveaway is now closed. Congrats, Mika!

I am so excited to tell you all about this recipe for Lemon Sherbet. The recipe comes from my friend Michelle of (What’s Cooking with Kids) new cookbook The Whole Family Cookbook. If you have kids, are passionate about eating well and teaching them how to help and cook in the kitchen then this book is for you and I’ve got 1 copy to giveaway today!

lemon sherbet

I’ve adapted Michelle’s Buttermilk Lemon Sherbet recipe to make a dairy-free sherbet (it’s also vegan now) for a couple of reasons: my dear mother-in-law is lactose intolerant so I thought I would offer her a simple alternative to ice cream, and two because I was totally out of buttermilk (related: 5 Homemade Buttermilk Substitutes) and almost out of milk.

I’d seen other recipes before that use coconut milk in ice cream, and so I though – why not? The pantry was stocked with several cans of light coconut milk that I had purchased during a recent sale.

This recipe for lemon sherbet is creamy and smooth and so easy to prepare – it only has 3 ingredients! I topped ours with a little blueberry sauce for an extra special treat.

In The Whole Family Cookbook, Michelle shares her passion for teaching kids of all ages the importance of getting into the kitchen, preparing, and eating wholesome food – together as a family.

It’s not just a book of family-friendly recipes, but a hands-on, educational tool for anyone who wants to teach their family about responsible cooking and eating. I love the color-coded age guidelines to help those new to the kitchen learn what preparation steps are appropriate for what age level.

Michelle is so incredibly passionate about what she does that it’s hard for me to put it into words. Instead, I’ll Michelle her tell you a little bit what she does and why she loves it so much.

For more of Michelle, check our her blog: What’s Cooking with Kids where she shares recipes, tips for cooking and meal planning with kids, and suggestions for how to help our communities as well as the planet through food and cooking.

If we are going to change children’s relationship to food, save their health and the health of our planet — then we need to find our kitchens again. To teach our children the symbiotic relationship between healthy food, a healthy earth, and healthy kids, we need to shop, cook and grow together. The Whole Family Cookbook is a wonderful and delicious tool to help us all eat better, feed our kids well and teach them about good food.

Coconut Milk Lemon Sherbet

adapted from The Whole Family Cookbook, by Michelle Stern

Print Save Recipe

Ingredients:

1 quart (4 cups) coconut milk
4 large lemons
1/2 cup granulated sugar

Directions:

First, be sure the freezer insert of your ice cream maker is frozen. If not, put it in the freezer and make this recipe another day.

Measure the coconut milk and pour into a medium-sized bowl (ideally, one with a spout). Zest the lemons using a microplane. Or, if you use a regular peeler, finely chop the zest. Set aside in a small bowl.

Slice the lemons in half width-wise. Juice them until you have 1/2 cup of lemon juice. Discard any stray seeds. Add the lemon juice to the coconut milk. Stir in the sugar.

Refrigerate the coconut milk mixture for 15 minutes, or until the mixture is cold and sugar has dissolved.

Katie's Note: We made the coconut milk mixture the night before and chilled it over night.

Pour the cold mixture into the frozen bowl of your ice cream maker and process for 20 minutes, or according to the manufacturer's directions. Add the lemon zest and continue to process for another 10 minutes.

How do I make ice cream if I don't have an ice cream maker?

Pour the coconut milk mixture into a lidded container. Place it in the freezer. Every 45 minutes, remove and stir vigorously until desired texture is achieved - about 3 hours.

Store in an airtight container in the freezer for 2 weeks. After being frozen overnight, be sure to take the sherbet out of the freezer about 20 minutes before scooping.

    I must have been only 3 or 4 when I sat on my grandma’s kitchen counter to help her make cookies. We added flour to the KitchenAid and I turned it on–full blast! Flour was everywhere. Everybody laughed and I cried. I guess that wasn’t a good kitchen experience, but in retrospect, it’s become a favorite memory.

    When I was older, we got my mom to videotape us doing “cooking shows”. I made soft pretzels. I was so stiff and uncharismatic that I’m sure it was a terrible video–but a fun project nonetheless!

    One day not too long ago, I permanently switched homes between parents; I would forevermore be separated from my father’s fresh baked loaves. I told him of my woes, and he pointed out the obvious: I, too, could bake bread. I helped with many, many loaves over the next few days. My hands and I aren’t quite as adept at kneading and loving the dough, but we’re getting continually closer.

    My favorite childhood cooking memory would have to be making orange glazed cinnamon rolls on Christmas morning with my mom. Every Christmas Eve (all the way to the present!) we would prepare the dough and all the ingredients and put them in the refridgerator. On Christmas morning we would open presents, then my mom and me would go in the kitchen and make the cinnamon rolls. To this day the smell of baking cinnamon rolls is the most comforting smell on earth to me.

    When I was little my family had apple trees in our yard. My favorite memory is of my whole family, the neighbors and some friends having a “picking party.” We would pick all the apples we could and even glean those on the ground for things like apple butter. My mom had a homemade dehydrator the size of a Volkswagen bug. We would slice apples for what seemed like hours and line them up to dry. She would make pies and we would make applesauce. My dad had a cider press. It was a great, sticky mess! And it was great fun :)

    My favorite childhood kitchen memory is pulling up a chair to the counter and pretending to do a cooking show while I made cookies or something. My mom let me have my run of the kitchen, as long as I cleaned up too, after I was 7 or 8. :-) We have many pictures of me doing “cooking shows” as I grew up.

    My favorite childhood cooking memory…. may be the first time my mother showed me how to make my favorite cookies. We called them oatmeal candy cookies, and I was amazed at how simple they were.

    My second favorite was when a friend in college showed me you could just make the ‘batter,’ and then just eat it out of cups. We dubbed it ‘happiness in a cup.’ And I wonder why I gained so much weight in college.

    My favorite kitchen memories all involve just being in the kitchen with my mom while she cooked. I especially loved baking Christmas cookies with her, as well as the homemade bread she made on a regular basis. And sometimes she even made foods based on the books I was reading in school (I was homeschooled), like Johnny cakes when we we read Johnny Tremain.

    My favorite childhood cooking memory…I would have to say standing on a chair in my Grandmothers kitchen helping my mom and my Grandmother hand grind peppers, onions, squash, cucumbers, and zuchini to make canned relish. Many a summers were spent on that chair, with that grinder, and most importantly with the 2 most important women in my life.

    I can’t say I have one favorite memory of cooking as a kid ( but I will share my kitchen disaster on your other post). My best memory is really just of doing a lot of baking and experimenting in the kitchen, and sharing my concoctions with my parents and neighbors. My parents next door neighbor still talks about the key lime pie I made for them (almost 30 years later!). I hope our neighbors now will be talking about the rhings my children bake and share with them 30 years from now!

    My favorite cooking memory is creating new things with my sister. My mom was a working mom and so we were left home alone at times. My sister and I just added this and that and made all sorts of great (and not so great stuff!) I remember creating a candy bar called “The Mummy” that was shaped like a mummy and covered in powdered sugar.

    O MY CUPCAKES!!!

    Didn’t get to cook to much when I was a child, not a happy family then, but I do remember when I was at my sister’s home and we had all the children, plus our four, come over and we baked the most unusual chocolate chip cookies ever.

    What a fun time being able to throw cookie dough, and eat it at the same time. We didn’t think about the eggs then..

    Also I like the entry to the book. I am 61, and hoping to get a food truck one day, not many left so I guess I better get a stirring up some money to make my one dream come true.
    But I really like her comment on bringing us back to the real food, and making food a fun adventure, healthy, love filled, and a family and friends event again.
    I know the old days are gone, but our creativity and enthusiasm can bring the ambiance of that era back with open arms, and yes hungry tummies.
    My goal is to make all food a healthy happening for all to enjoy, and with our education in what is good for our bodies, I hope that I can accommodate all types of palates, likes, and loves. thanks, redraven

    My favorite cooking memory is making biscuits with my great grandmother. She would always give me my own little tin pan to mix a little bit of dough in, then she let me help her roll and pat out the biscuits. It never seemed to matter how long it took or how big of a mess I made, well at least that’s how it seemed to me at the time. She would always let me sneak a little bit of the uncooked dough to eat too! She passed away when I was 10, That was 23 years ago, but every time I make biscuits I think of her..and yes I still have to taste the dough.

Nowadays I can make much more complicated meals, but it was fun cooking for the whole family as a 13 year old.

    My favorite childhood cooking memory is when I used to bake with my grandfather. He would call me to go upstairs and assist him in making some rice krispy treats. I loved doing that. Nothing was better than a hot, fresh, gooey batch of marshmallows and rice krispies. Yum…

    When I was little, a LONG time ago, every fall you were allowed to burn all of your raked leaves in giant piles in the street. We would get raw potatoes, wrap them in foil and throw them in the blazing piles and wait what seemed like HOURS for the embers to burn down. We would fish out the hot potatoes and open them up right there and eat them. They had that wonderful, smoky, burned leaf smell and it was just so much fun to eat and enjoy them as the sun was setting and the air was getting chilly. Good times!

    When we were kids and out of school in the summer, rain = baking day. To this day, I still get the baking bug every time it rains.

    My favorite childhood cooking memory is making blueberry muffins with my dad. We always used the box kind with the can of blueberries. Right when we pulled them out of the oven we would put them in a towel lined basket to keep them warm, and then eat (at least) a couple each spread with butter while they were still warm.

    i actually don’t have any good childhood memories of cooking – sad isn’t it? it just wasn’t considered “fun” in the house but rather a chore. i think about it differently now – thank goodness.

    I love Easter at my grandma’s house, every year we go and every year it’s the same as when I was little. Family being crazy and laughing in the kitchen and dining room, everyone a little bit in everyone’s way and the end result, a table full of delicious New Mexican food to break our Lenten fast. Mmm.

    Honestly? I grew up in a single parent household with a mom who had little time and didn’t enjoy cooking. My favorite food memories are about baking Christmas cookies. We used Pillsbury slice and bake dough. There used to be instructions on the side that showed you how to make your slices into angels, trees, and Santa Clauses’. We placed our slices on the sheet and they actually came out just like the package. We decorated them with egg wash and sprinkles. It still makes me smile.

    My best childhood memory has got to be sitting on the kitchen counter, cookbook in my lap, figuring out with my mum (who I still think is the best cook EVER) what to make for dinner…we would pore over cook books for hours together! I can still spend any amount of time reading cookbooks :-)

    What a great idea using coconute milk for sorbet. Did you know that the only difference between light coconut milk and regular is that they add water to the ‘light’ one? Save yourself some money and just add your own water if you want. But coconut milk is a good fat anyway. ;) just a thought.

    My favorite childhood cooking memory was making scrambled eggs for my mom for a breakfast in bed, it was the first time I had attempted anything like this alone, and it was terrible, I ruined her brand new pan, burning the eggs, the pancakes were good though, well maybe. :) We all still laugh about it and I still don’t like to cook eggs.

    One of my favorite childhood cooking memories was making cookies. When I put them in the oven, some dough must have fallen off and a fire started in the oven. This was not the first time I had started a fire in the kitchen. It’s one of my favorite memories because everyone used to cringe when I would cook, but now everyone want to come to my house to eat!

    I tried this recipe but I found when I added the lemon juice it curdled the coconut milk and then the ice cream never really froze in my machine…it got colder with a few ice crystals but the lemon juice and curdled coconut milk stayed separated. It looked kind of like it does when you pour scrambled eggs into boiling water. Is that normal? Any ideas on what to do? That picture there just looks soooo good, and I even made some fresh blueberry syrup to boot!

      I have no idea what happened here as this is not something I’ve ever experienced when preparing this recipe. Off the top of my head – the ice cream machine insert was not fully frozen and/or the coconut milk was out of date? Sorry about that!
