Cool Mandarin Dessert

This dessert is so easy to make, but it looks so elegant. I serve it in a pretty dessert bowl or a large martini glass. Cook time is chill time.

    I was going to post this recipe, but since someone beat me to it, I get to do the next best thing: review it! This dessert reminds me of my favorite ice cream bar from childhood, a vanilla ice cream and orange sherbet concoction called (I think) a 50-50 bar or a dreamcicle. To me, it tastes like summer. Add this one to your cookbooks and try it, folks. It is the perfect antidote to the mid-winter blahs.
