A close-up view of a scoop of blood orange sorbet in a glass bowl. The text "BLOOD ORANGE SORBET" is displayed at the bottom.


  • Zest from one blood orange
  • 2 cups-blood orange juice (about 6-8 oranges)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup sugar (or use 1/3 cup honey or agave)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice


  1. Zest one orange and place the zest aside. Juice all the blood oranges (or any other citrus), enough to make 2 cups.
  2. Place the water,  zest, lemon juice, and 1/2 cup sugar in a small saucepan, warming over medium heat, stirring frequently, until the sugar has dissolved. You don’t want this hot, just warm enough to dissolve sugar.
  3. Chill thoroughly, then place in your ice cream maker or sorbet maker, churning until desired consistency.
  4. Best eaten immediately!
