Orange Sorbet Recipe

I hope everyone had a safe and happy 4th of July holiday and celebrations with family and friends. We spent our weekend with my husband’s family and had a busy fun filled weekend. I have some pictures to share of our trip coming soon. At least some fun pictures till my camera battery died and I had to resort to using my cell phone camera. It was really hard to be without my camera which is usually attached to my hip. The weather was fabulous but hot! And one of our favorite ways to cool off is to eat some Orange Sorbet using this easy orange sorbet recipe, a cool and icy treat.

Have you heard of Bountiful Baskets? Well, sometimes we get our produce at this co-op. My sister introduced me to it and she volunteers at our local one. The produce is so amazing. This time we ordered some oranges and we didn’t quite eat them all fast enough before they started to go bad.

So we juiced them and decided to make some orange sorbet. Ummm…can you say DELICIOUS! So Good! Every single one of my kids loved it. They thought it tasted better than ice cream. And it was so refreshing.

3. Chill in refrigerator. Make your sorbet according to the manufacturer’s instructions for your ice cream maker.

(If you don’t have an ice cream maker you can place it in your freezer and stir the freezing mixture every half an hour until it is a nice frozen consistency)

4. You can create frozen orange cups from oranges cut in half, and gently scooping out the contents and removing all the pulp.

5. When sorbet is ready, scoop into orange cups, garnish with fruit and serve.

How fun would this be for a summer party or a Girl’s Night Out? I also think it would be perfect for a baby or bridal shower. Such an easy and summery treat that is sweet, fresh and cool for these hot summer days! We will definitely be making this recipe again.
