    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 teaspoon unflavored gelatin, soaked in 1 tsp water
    • 1 1/4 cups orange juice, heated

    1. 1
      Soak gelatin in 1 teaspoon of water.
    2. 2
      Heat orange juice and dissolve gelatin and sugar in it. Cool to lukewarm.
    3. 3

      I tried this out with fresh squeezed oranges and lemons and it was FABULOUS!!!! I used 4 naval oranges and 2 lemons to get the measurements, but it was well worth the effort for the authentic flavors. I couldn't believe something so simple tasted SO amazing!!! Definintely a recipe for the books, so THANKS!

      Lovely!!! I used half a package of orange Jello and omitted the sugar. It turned the ice cream a beautiful orange. I also zested the (organic) orange and added the zest when heating the OJ. Would have left it in but my kids wouldn't like that, so I poured it through a sieve to remove the zest pieces. Used my ice cream maker. We had it with chocolate syrup ;-) This totally was the orange ice cream I was looking for, thank you for this delicious recipe!

      Very nice! After chilling, I finished this off with my Cuisinart ice cream maker, and we had the sherbet in about 30 minutes. Delicious. It really does taste like a creamsicle. Made for the Comfort Cafe.
