Punch (non alcoholic)

Hi there,
I just printed the recipe for making later-on. What is a pint of sherbet?
The ingredient is not in South Africa or maybe it is... any alternative I can use please?
Thank you for your time.
All the best,

Sherbet is an American version of gelato; a pint is 2 cups, about 1/2 litre. Just use whatever size container of gelato comes close.

Sounds delicious,can't wait
