We love citrus and frozen desserts. This is the best of both worlds! It’s really easy to make without the aid of an ice cream machine. It is a frozen burst of sunshine!
Cara Cara Orange Sorbet
- 1 cup Sunkist Cara Cara Orange juice, 6 to 8 oranges
- peel of 2 Sunkist Cara Cara Oranges, no white part
- 1 Tablespoon Sunkist Lemon juice, more if desisred
- 1 cup water
- 1 cup sugar
Peel the skin, not getting any white, from 2 oranges. Place peeling, sugar and water in a saucepan. Stir to dissolve sugar and bring boil. Lower heat to a simmer while you squeeze oranges.
Remove simple syrup from heat, remove peeling and discard. Add juice from oranges and 1 Tablespoon lemon juice. Taste and add 1 more Tablespoon of lemon juice if too sweet.
Pour into a freezer safe container. I used my metal lasagna pan. Put in freezer until just frozen, about 1 hour, depending on size of pan used. Scrape frozen juice with fork, fluffing it. Lightly smooth down. You can eat it now or freeze again to make it a little harder. Put back in freezer for at least another 1 hour or until hard.
Remove pan from freezer and scoop out a burst of sunshine! Enjoy!
