Sherbert is not ice cream, they are two different (though similar) things.

Side note: Sherbert, first off, is an incorrect spelling of the word sherbet. At this point in time the words are interchangeable depending on what part of the world you live in as the misspelling has been around for decades.

To understand their relationship, a bit of history:

Originally there were sharbats, a non alcoholic fruit drink mixed with crushed ice to produce a slushy like texture.

Later some people would simply take crushed or shaved ice and splash fruit juice on it instead of taking the time to properly mix into a Sharbat. That style of desert creation is like a modern snow cone or a sorbet depending on how much juice is added and the texture of the ice.

The next step was developed as people wanted a smoother version of the crushed ice desert with a stronger flavor but not as liquid as a Sharbat. They would mix the drinks for a longer period of time and add small amounts of dairy or eggs to create a creamy texture. This could be drank while liquid (similar to a smoothie but still typically called a sharbat or sharbat with cream, etc) or frozen to a more firm texture and eaten with a spoon: The result was known as Sherbet (derived from its drink version the Sharbat).

Eventually people began adding more cream, and would sometimes remove the fruit juice entirely. Using the same process with mostly cream instead of fruit juice creates either a milk shake (if served partially liquid) or ice cream (iced cream/milk) if frozen to a firm texture.

Doing the same process but replacing the cream/milk with yogurt produces frozen yogurt.

Sherbet (in the US) can legally only contain between 2% and 5% of dairy or eggs. Above 5% is an ice cream and below 2% would simply be a sorbet or flavored ice. Good quality ice creams are far over the 5% dairy requirement and are not close to meeting the legal definition of sherbet.

In summary: Calling something a sherbert ice cream is simply misunderstanding the product.

It is either mostly fruit juice based and thus a sherbet, or it is mostly cream based and thus an ice cream, or it is mostly yogurt based and thus a frozen yogurt. (and of course if there is no dairy at all its neither a sherbet nor an ice cream)

Even if you were to balance equally the fruit juice with the dairy, you would legally end up with a fruit flavored ice cream (as you'd be over the 5% dairy limit); there is no balance of ingredients where it would ever qualify as both a sherbet and an ice cream at the same time.
Sherbet is not an Ice cream but I think is made up of mostly strawberry and some other fruits. Hope this answer helps you. :)
