Recipe Collection: Orange Sherbet

Since we’ve been no-sugar, I’ve been seeking some type of “dessert” I can eat. I tried a super simple recipe for orange sherbet and it was “okay.” I decided to scrap that and try again. The second attempt is what I’ve posting for you today, and it is excellent! In fact, it tastes like an Orange Julius to me! So for those of you missing fast food…make some of this!!

2 egg yolks (pastured/organic)
2 vanilla beans
1.5 c. coconut milk, unsweetened
3 c. orange juice

Heat coconut milk in a medium saucepan on low. Beat in eggs yolks. Scrape out vanilla beans and add the caviar to the milk mixture. Cut the vanilla beans in half and add them too. Stir and cook on low until the mixture is steaming and slightly thickened. Watch it carefully so the eggs don’t cook. Remove it from the heat, and add cold orange juice. At this point, pour into an ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer’s directions.

I haven’t tried this, but if you used orange zest and freshly squeezed orange juice, I’m betting it would be even better!!
