Introduction: Citrus Sorbet

Picture of Citrus Sorbet

              An original tasty treat for a hot day. I love Orange Julius and wanted to make something kind of like it with some fresh fruit. I thought of some things that would go well with oranges and put in random measurements of them in until I got it just right. It tastes fresh and light and is perfect for hot summer days. This recipe can also be made with grape fruit instead of oranges, but if your'e using grape fruits you may want to put in more sugar.

Step 1:

3/4 c whipping cream
1/2 c sugar
2 oranges
1/2 lemon
3 key limes
1 tsp. almond extract
4 c ice
6 oz frozen orange juice

Step 2:

You don't need almond extract but it adds to making it taste lighter.

That sounds delicious! Do you need almond extract? Do you know how that adds to the recipe and the flavor?
