Making a 2-ingredient orange sherbet is indeed a fun and easy process. Sherbet is a frozen dessert that falls somewhere between ice cream and sorbet. For this recipe, you’ll only need two main ingredients: orange juice and sweetened condensed milk. Here’s how you can prepare it:


  • 2 cups of orange juice (freshly squeezed or store-bought, but avoid pulp)
  • 1 can (14 ounces) of sweetened condensed milk


  1. Chill the Ingredients: Make sure your orange juice is chilled before you start. You can either buy pre-chilled orange juice or put fresh orange juice in the refrigerator for a few hours or overnight.
  2. Mixing the Ingredients: In a large bowl, combine the chilled orange juice and the sweetened condensed milk. You can use a whisk or an electric mixer to blend the two ingredients together. Mix until the mixture is smooth and well combined.
  3. Freeze the Mixture: Pour the blended mixture into a freezer-safe container with a lid. A shallow, flat container works well, as it will freeze faster and be easier to scoop. Alternatively, you can use an ice cream maker if you have one.

  1. Freezing Time: Place the container in the freezer and let it freeze for at least 4-6 hours or until it becomes firm. It’s a good idea to check on it after about 2 hours and give it a gentle stir to prevent large ice crystals from forming.
  2. Serving: Once the sherbet is fully frozen and has the desired consistency, it’s ready to serve. Scoop the orange sherbet into bowls or cones and enjoy!


  • You can customize the flavor by using different fruit juices instead of orange juice. Try using lemon, lime, raspberry, or any other fruit juice you like.
  • If you want a creamier texture, you can replace some or all of the orange juice with heavy cream or half-and-half. However, remember that this will make it a 3-ingredient recipe instead of 2.
  • Adding a pinch of salt can enhance the flavor of the sherbet.

Now you have a simple and delightful 2-ingredient orange sherbet ready to enjoy on a hot day or whenever you’re in the mood for a refreshing frozen treat!
