Sugar Free Orange Sorbet (E)

The boys in our house have an evening ice-cream addiction.  So I have been working on some refreshing summer options that meet the picky standards of my guys while appeasing a health-conscious mom.   Well, by-golly, I think I’ve done it!!!DSC_0407This refreshing treat is made from whole foods and nourishing ingredients… We are loving it!  You will need a high-end blender to get the smooth sorbet-like consistency but the flavor will be great even if you don’t have one.

    • Yes, I have tried it with protein powder and it has a creamsicle like flavor… But I liked it better without… I am more of a straight up citrus kind of gal… but go ahead and modify it to your hearts content!

      • Tried it both ways! Delish! Better without protein powder, for sure. Thanks for sharing!! My kids thank you too 🙂

  1. This recipe is WONDERFUL! Thank you for sharing–it was a wonderful treat for us after a less than stellar “E” meal. (Sometimes it just happens that way.) I added a teaspoon of vanilla extract, and it made it like an orange dreamsicle. Heaven!
