Cost: 1


  • Frozen yogurt or ice cream maker or baking pan for no-churn version


  • 4 cups carbonated orange soda (More can be used according to ice cream makers capacity)


  • For the Cuisinart or Donvier frozen-cylinder-ice cream maker, remove the frozen cylinder from the freezer (frozen at least 8 hours in advance) and place on the base. Place the paddle in the middle, lock the lid in place, and turn on the machine.
  • Pour the orange soda the frozen cylinder ice cream maker and freeze 19 minutes or until slushy but firm enough to scoop. Be sure to start the machine before pouring in the soda. The sides of the cylinder will start freezing the soda immediately, so you want to have the paddle in place and machine on before pouring it in.
  • For the traditional ice cream maker, pour the soda no more than two-thirds full. Place the cylinder in the middle of the "bucket" and fill in around it with ice and rock salt freeze until according to manufacturers directions.
  • Warning: This sorbet melts FAST! To freeze for later serving, transfer the sorbet out of the frozen cylinder into an airtight container and store in the freezer.


Important to know:
The paddle on a frozen yogurt/ice cream/sorbet maker with frozen cylinder doesn't move. The frozen cylinder turns around the paddle.
For a more firm consistency, pour the slushy mixture in a shallow baking pan and place in the freezer until your desired consistency.
Make other flavors! Just substitute your favorite flavored soda-grape, pineapple, lemon-lime.
Make Orange Soda Sherbet by stirring in 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk for every 4 cups of soda. Or, 1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk for a 2-liter of soda for a bigger yield. Optionally, you can add an 8-ounce can of crushed pineapple (undrained). Follow freezing directions in the recipe.
Freeze It Faster: Start with soda chilled in the fridge.
