Peach Sherbet

I will sure be glad when you go back to your WW cause all the recipes I really like and want to post are carbs....LOL..

And, unfortunately, I do not have a picture of this....yep, you guessed it. I ate the evidence!  I could pull some out of the freezer but I just don't feel like snapping photos right now, the flower beds are calling out to me! The weather is awesome right now and I've spent the last 2  1/2 days outside sprucing up the place to get ready for flower planting time.  I got both the front and back decks power-washed off and the patio furniture drug out of storage.  I can't decide if I'm going to stain or not....they probably need to be stained but they still have some color left and I'm thinking they might last another season.

But, I got hungry this afternoon for something nice and cold and had some frozen peaches just beckoning at me to use them up...

This is what I made and it really hit the fact, I don't even think I'll tell Bill I made the last 3 servings just for me!  LOL...

Peach Sherbet

2  1/2 cups frozen unsweetened peach slices, slightly thawed. (I used the whole bag, it was a bit over 2  1/2 cups but I couldn't see much sense in putting a half cup back in the freezer. )
2 Tbs. unsweetened orange juice
2/3 cup Carnation Nonfat Dry Milk Powder
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 cup Splenda granular (you could use plain sugar here or the Splenda blend, which is half Splenda, half real sugar)

In a blender container, combine peach slices and orange juice. Cover and process on CHOP for 15 to 20 seconds. ( My blender took a lot longer than this...I think I need a new one) Add dry milk powder, vanilla extract and Splenda.  Re-cover and process on BLEND until mixture is smooth and creamy. Serve at once or freeze for future use.

Serves 4 (1/2 cup)
Each serving equals:
96 calories, 0 gm fat, 5 gm Protein, 19 gm carbohydrate, 63 mg Sodium, 156 mg Calcium and 2 gm fiber.

Look at that calcium!  Women need lots and lots of extra calcium and by using the dry milk powder we are getting a boast of it!  Plus, the added benefit of 5 gm of protein!  I think this is a very healthy dish!  


Pin It!


  1. Sounds really good and refreshing on a hot day after working outside all day. I love peaches so this is extra appealing.
    You can post any kind of recipe you want I can either make it or save for another time.
    Thanks for the recipe.

  2. It was! In fact, I think I'll have a dish for lunch....after I get these dang invitations worked up...why do I get myself into this things? The weather is awesome and I'm stuck in here today! Yuck!
    But, I've got to get a couple mock ups done to get her approval for and then, hopefully, I can get them printed on Sunday morning and delivered on Sunday afternoon. I've also got to do three birthday cards! Oh, my....what was I thinking?

  3. You get yourself into things like this because you are nice and you want to.

    It was fantastic here yesterday but rainy and humid today.
