The Power of Orange!

ORANGE is a stimulating and energizing color. It connects to attraction, stimulation, control, personal strength, authority, and power. Also encouragement, adaptability, luck, and sudden changes.

Aside from the power of the color orange, I LOVE oranges when the weather starts getting hot! So, let's mix a little orange magic in your life with this refreshing recipe! Now you'll need an ice cream maker for this but I plan on investing in one this summer. I want to make an assortment of sorbets throughout the summer!


4 pounds blood oranges or other oranges
1 1/4 cups water
3/4 cup sugar


Finely grate enough peel from oranges to measure 1 1/2 tablespoons. Combine 1 1/4 cups water, sugar, and 1 1/2 tablespoons orange peel in heavy medium saucepan. Stir over high heat until sugar dissolves and syrup boils; remove syrup from heat.

Cut all peel and pith from oranges. Working over bowl to catch juices, cut between membranes to release orange segments. Discard any seeds. Transfer orange mixture to processor; puree until smooth, about 30 seconds. Measure 2 1/3 cups orange puree and mix into orange syrup (reserve any remaining puree for another use). Cover orange mixture; refrigerate at least 6 hours and up to 1 day to blend flavors.

Process orange mixture in ice cream maker according to manufacturer's instructions. Transfer to container; cover and freeze. (Can be made 2 days-ahead).

Enjoy and bring some positive power into your life!!
