Ice cream is a calorie crazy dessert but if you go with sherbet you can cut down on the calories and still have a cold delicious drink. If you feel creative you can even go with frozen yogurt and have less than half the amount of calories than you do with the ice cream.Lemons are a great addition to many desserts but not everyone is a fan of the tarty citrus fruit. Try oranges and make a creamsicle type of drink or go fancy and try mangoes. Like all recipes this one is also a great vehicle for you to show your creativity and come up with a new and exciting mix.
