Raspberry and Orange Ice Dessert

Raspberry & Orange Ice Dessert
Perfect for these hot summer days. This dessert is easy to make, uses fresh ingredients, has relatively few calories, & is utterly deliciousness personified (or should that be ‘dessertified?’)


  • 3 cups freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 2 tbsps lemon juice
  • 1 mugful of raspberries
  • 1/2 mugful of sugar
  • 1 tsp each lemon & orange rind
  • fresh mint leaves for garnish

1. In a bowl combine 3 cups of freshly squeezed orange juice (do use a juicer, or get someone with strong arms, or someone who wants big biceps to do this for you!), 2 tbsps of lemon juice, 1 mugful of raspberries (put through a mouli to remove the pips, or mash through a fine seive), 1 tsp each of lemon rind and orange rind, and 1/2 a mugful of sugar (big mug!). Use an electric whisk on a low setting, or a good old mixing spoon – this will give you good biceps!
2. If you have an ice dessert maker then pour the ingredients into the machine and follow the manufacturers instructions to complete the ice dessert.
3. For the rest of us plebs (!) freeze the mixture
 in a shallow dish suitable for the freezer (d’oh!) for at least 2 hours.
4. Then take the dish out of the freezer and break the mixture up using a wooden utensil. Then with your electric whisk (or Grandma with arm set to no.3!), beat the mixture again until smooth.
5. Freeze the mixture again for another couple of hours (pref. longer) and serve with fresh mint leaves!
6. If you are a greedy guts (or it’s a really hot day), you can eat the dessert after the first freezing and first mashing. It will be mushier.
