Sherbet is a type of frozen dessert that is similar to ice cream but contains less fat and is more tart in flavor. It is a popular summertime treat, often made with fruit juice or other flavored syrups. Sherbet typically contains milk, sugar, and flavorings such as fruit puree and fruit juice, and often contains some form of stabilizer, such as gelatin, egg whites, or pectin. Sherbet is generally served in a cup or dish and is usually eaten with a spoon or straw. Sherbet is available in a range of flavors, from traditional fruit-based flavors such as lemon, raspberry, and orange to more exotic flavors such as watermelon, mango, and lime. Sherbet is also sometimes served with a topping, such as whipped cream, nuts, or sprinkles.
