My kids saw this in Kraft's "What's Cooking magazine" and decided to make it for dessert when we had their teachers over for lunch. This is a simple make-ahead dessert that appeals to the eye and the stomach! Cook time is freezing time.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 cups raspberry sorbet (I used President's Choice fat free raspberry gelato and it worked great) or 2 cups sherbet (I used President's Choice fat free raspberry gelato and it worked great)
  • 1 cup cold milk
  • 1 (106 g) package instant vanilla pudding (or try chocolate for an extra special treat!)
  • 3 cups Cool Whip, thawed
  • 1 cup raspberries


  1. Line a 9x5 inch loaf pan with foil, spoon sorbet into pan and put in the freezer for 10 minutes.
  2. Pour milk into a large bowl and add dry pudding mix. Whisk until well blended and fold in whipped topping.
  3. Spread pudding mixture over sorbet in pan.
  4. Freeze for at least 3 hours or overnight. Wrap securely and label if freezing longer than 24 hours.
  5. Unmold loaf pan onto a serving platter and top with fresh raspberries just before serving. It will be easier to cut if it rests for 15 minutes.
  6. Enjoy!

Amidst the heat wave, we decided we would throw a pool party for our friends and family along with BBQ, salads, etc, etc. I wanted to serve a desert that was a bit healthier then cookies or cakes but yet I wanted it to be summery and refreshing. This was sooo easy to make, very flavorful, and I received so many compliments on the desert. It became an instant favorites of my family which now request it every time the weather gets hot. My changes wore, sugar free pudding, fat free whip cream, served it drizzled with chocolate syrup or chocolate jimmies.

This is great. I made it for Valentine's Day and my boyfriend loved it. I used a large-muffin muffin pan so I could make individual portions. Instead of fresh raspberries I used shaved dark chocolate. Great recipe!

This is very refreshing, simple to make and has as many variations as there are sorbet or sherbet flavors. My FIL has made it with lemon sorbet and white cheescake pudding. It might also be nice with orange sherbet and white chocolate pudding for a "dreamsicle" flavor. Thanks for sharing this.
