After seeing the other glowing review, I had high hopes for this recipe, and have really wanted to find a good gelato recipe.But this wasn't it.Although a bit overly sweet, it was refreshing, but more like sherbet, NOT gelato.I followed the recipe to a T, with no alterations.It made 8 medium sized servings, with none left over for second helpings, but no one wanted any.Overall, it wasn't bad, but just wasn't what we were looking for.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place confectioners’ sugar, orange juice, water and lemon juice in a large pan; stir over medium heat 4-5 minutes or until sugar is dissolved; bring to boil; reduce heat; simmer gently for 15 minutes; remove from heat; pour into a large bowl; allow to cool; stir in liqueur.
  2. Using electric mixer, beat egg whites until soft peaks form; gradually beat in the extra icing sugar until thick and glossy; using a metal spoon, gently fold egg whites into orange mixture; pour mixture into an ice cream maker and churn for about 30 minutes or freeze until just solid.
