    Ice cream can be as simple as cream, sugar, flavoring and a few hours in the freezer.

    This is perhaps the easiest ice cream you will ever make. And with a blood orange in the house, your dreams might come true!

    Recipe: No-Churn Blood Orange Dreamsicle Ice Cream

    Summary: Flecked with peel and colored a delicate pink, this Blood Orange Dreamsicle Ice Cream needs no churning, and is a simply sophisticated dessert that recalls beloved childhood flavors.


    • 1 cup cream (regular, not heavy)
    • 1/4 cup sugar
    • Zest of 1 blood orange
    • 3 tablespoons blood orange juice (from 1 orange)
    • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • Pinch kosher salt


    1. Pour cream into a 2-cup measuring cup. Add sugar, zest, blood orange juice, vanilla and salt. Stir well until sugar dissolves. The mixture will thicken slightly as you stir, and turn a light pink color.
    2. Pour into a plastic lidded container and freeze for 8 hours, or overnight.
    3. To serve, small scoops go well with fresh berries or fruit, plain cookies or even a sprinkling of granola on top.
    4. Serves 4-6.
