This tastes like a lemon ice but with a more gourmet flavor, from the soymilk website. Sometimes I add lime zest instead of the orange or a combination of the three. You can make this lower in calories by using splenda in place of the sugar. The cooking time is for freezing. Sometimes it takes a little less than 3 hours to freeze.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place 8- or 9-inch square baking dish in freezer to chill.
  2. Meanwhile, in 1-quart saucepan, heat 1 cup of the soymilk and the sugar just to boiling over medium-high heat, stirring frequently.
  3. Add tea bags and push into soymilk mixture; let stand 5 minutes. Discard tea bags.
  4. Stir in remaining 2 cups soymilk, the orange peel and lemon peel until well blended.
  5. Pour into chilled pan; freeze 30 minutes. When ice crystals begin to form at edges of pan, stir mixture with fork. Freeze about 3 hours longer, stirring every 30 minutes, until completely frozen.
  6. To serve, scoop into individual dessert bowls. Garnish with mint leaves.
