My mom has been bringing bags and bags full of oranges to our house every weekend, much more than we can finish. I was trying to think of what I could make with all these oranges, possibly some kind of sherbet or sorbet? A quick glance at my David Lebovitz ice cream book led me to what I was looking for .... orange creamsicle ice cream!
The recipe calls for grated orange zest in addition to freshly squeezed orange juice - perfect for using up lots of oranges! And with the recent warm weather, orange creamsicles in ice cream form sounded perfect.
After blending up the orange zest with sugar, and then adding yogurt and heavy cream, it was ready to be churned. The resulting ice cream was fresh, creamy, and perfectly orangey. If you've ever had Orange Julius, that's what it reminded me of. I'll definitely be making this one again!
