A low-cal/healthy dessert that is a great way to use strawberries when in season. This makes extra strawberry ice that can be used in extra orange shells or for another meal. Recipe source: Bon Appetit (January 1985)

This was a nice light dessert. I didn't serve it in the orange peels, but if I was serving this to company, I would. The berry flavor was almost too strong for us, so we added Sprite to it and made it kind of like a slushie. It was very good. I want to try this with other kinds of frozen fruit!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut the 4 cups of fresh strawberries in half and arrange in a single layer on a cookie sheet and freeze until firm (2 hours) - obviously if using frozen berries you skip this step.
  2. Cut off upper third of each orange. Hollow out shells and set shells aside. The orange pulp can be used for another use.
  3. Using a food processor chop berries with the sugar using on/off turns, then process until slushy (5 minutes).
  4. With machine running, add lemon juice and egg whites through the feed tube and mix until light and thick (2-3 minutes).
  5. Spoon 1/2 cup strawberry ice into each orange shell.
  6. Freeze for at least 1 hour but can be prepared up to 3 days in advance -- if frozen solid let soften in refrigerator before serving.
  7. Top each serving with a whole strawberry if desired.
