This is really worth a sky of stars! Giving you only 5 is breaking my heart, but that's the max., so I have no choice, but let me tell you, I have a total dislike for green tea, but this green tea sherbet is so delicious, that it has now made me change my mind. It is beautiful! I would call it an "Elixir of life"! I can now be free of tension as to how I'd use up my green tea box ;) Thank you for sharing this recipe:)

delicious. I used 5 green tea bags instead of real tea leaves, and added 1 cup milk to make it more creamy and reduced the sugar to a scant 2/3 cup. Came out wonderful, fresh and perfect for a hot summer day. Thanks

Yummy! I really enjoyed this! Just the right blend of flavors. I did use Splenda, so reduced to 2/3 cup. Delicious! Thank you for posting! I will make this often!!! Made for Comfort Cafe 09
