I loved this recipe! I tried to cut back on the canned milk because of other reviews and it was a bit strong. I only made three changes to the recipe . . . I added 1-2 tsp lemon juice and 1 tsp vanilla. To get a smooth flavor more like fruity ice cream place the pre-canned milk mix in your freezer in a tubbaware bowl and stir it about every 45 minutes. When it seems a bit more firm (about 2 hrs) add the canned milk (only 4-5oz!) and let set overnight. Break it up in the morning and mix in a blender or stand mixer till smooth (the more air you get into the mix the lighter the end product will be) Then place back in the freezer to firm up again. Note: You can use strained watermelon, mango, grapes, or any fruit or mix to create your own favorites with this recipe.


Tastes more like creamsicle than orange sherbet. I put all ingredients in my ice cream freezer, and it came out like thick soft serve. Not a lot of orange flavor, doesn't taste like the store bought stuff at all.


We could taste more of the evaporated milk flavor than the orange flavor. Not very good at all.
