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.

    1. 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!

      1. 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!
