Orange Sorbet

By Kira On September 27, 2010 Under Cooking

So I seem to be into snacking…I think it is a habit I picked up during my pregnancy.  So I am always looking for something fun and interesting to snack on in the evening. Ultimately my goal should be to keep it healthy so I was excited to try out this new recipe tonight out of my Blendtec Lifestyles Recipe Book. The recipe says it makes 6 (1/2 cup) servings. However, my husband and I split the batch of sorbet giving us each 1 1/2 cups. The directions below are for the Blendtec blender (our family’s favorite appliance, my daughter is always saying “Mom, your blender makes such good food”) but you may be able to adapt the recipe for another blender. If you are trying in a different blender I would add some liquid as well.

Orange Sorbet

2 oranges – peeled and cut in half

2 Tbsp sugar

2 1/2 cups ice

Place ingredients in jar in order listed, and secure lid. Press the Ice Cream button.
