Orange Popsicle Ice Cream

It has been more than two months since I last posted  an Ice Cream recipe. I have made Ice Cream a couple of times since then, and they are all repeats, the same ones which I have made earlier. I made Dragon Fruit Ice Cream one weekend, when my nieces and nephew came for a visit. I made some Peach Ice Cream when my daughter's friend planned to come over to spend the day with her, in the end, she could not make it and we finished the ice cream ourselves! And I made some Mango Ice Cream when my neighbour gave me some big juicy mangoes from her tree. These ice cream are all worth making again. I figured it's time to try out a new flavour.



 I have some oranges in the fridge which I thought of making some ice cream with and found the perfect Orange Ice Cream recipe. David Lebovitz did it again with this delicious, creamy, orangy ice cream.


Instead of using the blender, I  mix the sugar and the orange zest by hand! Wow! Smells fantastic! I almost did not want to wash my hands! : o ) My son happens to come back from school at that time, the minute he walked into the house (not the kitchen!), he goes, "Wow, smells nice, oranges!" 


 Yum!


 Yum!


 Yum!


This is is a delicious, creamy and refreshing Ice Cream bursting with the tangy, citrusy taste and the fragrance of the oranges! Simply a beautiful fabulous ice cream! There will definitely be a repeat of this delightful ice cream, for sure! 


And I'm bringing this to a Cookbook Party, hosted by Louise of Months of Edible Celebrations. Louise is celebrating her Blogoversary by throwing a Cookbook Party, and October being the National Cookbook Month! There's a whole list of food celebrations just for the month of October! For full details, hop over to Months of Edible Celebrations. I'm submitting this delightful Ice Cream under the list "Dessert Month"!



Orange Popsicle Ice Cream
(adapted from "The Perfect Scoop" by David Lebovitz)
Makes about 1 quart (1 liter)
2/3 cup (130gm) sugar (I use about 1/2 cup, depending on the sweetness of the oranges)
grated zest of 3 oranges, preferably unsprayed
1-1/4 cups (310ml) freshly squeezed orange juice (from 4 or 5 large oranges)
1 cup (240gm) sour cream
1/2 cup (125ml) half-and-half (I use whipping cream)
2 teaspoons Grand Marnier or another orange liquer (I omit this)


In a blender, pulverize the sugar and orange zest until the zest is very fine. Add the orange juice, sour cream, half-and-half, and Grand Marnier and blend until the sugar is completely dissolved.
Chill the mixture thoroughly in the refrigerator, then freeze it in your ice cream maker according to the manufacturer's instructions.

  22. Your ice cream sounds delicious! Good job with the pictures too! Ice cream is one of the hardest to take pictures of as they melt so easily.
