- 2 cups orange juice (freshly squeezed or store-bought)
- 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
- Optional: orange zest or orange slices for garnish
- Make sure the orange juice has cooled down before you start making it.
In a large bowl, mix orange juice and sweetened condensed milk.
Using an electric mixer or paddle attachment, stir well until well blended and smooth.
- If desired, you can add a teaspoon of orange peel to enhance the flavor of the orange. Add it to the mixture.
Pour the mixture into a freezer-safe bowl or loaf pan. Make sure the container is large enough to hold the mixture with some room for expansion.
Cover the container with a lid or plastic wrap to prevent ice crystals from forming. Put it in the freezer.
Allow the sorbet mixture to solidify for at least 6 hours, or until it reaches a firm consistency. You can also leave it overnight.
- Once the sorbet is frozen, remove it from the freezer and let it sit at room temperature for a few minutes until it’s slightly mushy before serving.
Put the orange sherbet in bowls or cones for serving.
If desired, garnish with a sprinkle of orange zest or a slice of fresh orange.
Enjoy our homemade two-ingredient orange sherbet!
- Note: Sorbet can become quite solid after prolonged freezing. If it’s too stiff, you can leave it at room temperature for a few minutes to soften it up before softening it. You can also move the sorbet to the refrigerator for 10 to 15 minutes to make it easier to prepare.
- Remember, this recipe is for a simple two-ingredient orange sorbet. If you want to experiment with flavours, you can add other ingredients like vanilla extract and lemon juice or even mix in small pieces of fruit to customize your sherbet.
- Enjoy !
