  • 500 ml cold whipping cream (35% fat)
  • zest of 1 orange
  • 125 ml orange juice
  • 1 tbsp orange liqueur
  • Pinch of sea salt

For the decorative topping

  • 6 mint tops
  • Zest of 1/2 orange

Beware: For this recipe you need 8 oranges in total!

  • Kitchen knife
  • 2 mixing bowls
  • 1 medium sized bowl
  • Electric mixer with wire whisk(s)
  • Spoon
  • Spatula
  • Can opener
  • Brownie tin

How it’s done

1. Cut off the top of 6 oranges like a lid you can lift up. Work a spoon around the inner edges of the oranges to scoop out the pulp of the oranges. You do not have to scoop out the pulp of the orange lids. (It can take a little bit more or less effort depending on your oranges. But be careful not to slip with you spoon. This could damage the orange peel.) Collect the orange pulp and juice in a bowl.

2. In one bowl whip the cream until stiff/firm. In another bowl mix the condensed milk, orange juice (Use the juice of the scooped-out orange pulp), orange zest, orange liquor and salt with a spatula.

3. Fold a couple of scoops of the whipped cream into the condensed milk mixture to loosen it up. Then add the rest of the whipped cream and gently fold it in.

4. Place the hollowed-out oranges in a brownie tin (or same size plastic container). Fill the oranges with the orange cream. Place the lids of the oranges next to the corresponding oranges and freeze the Orange Cream cups for at least 4 hours or overnight.

5. Take the Orange Ice Cream cups out of the freezer, 10 minutes before serving. This way the Orange Ice Cream is nicely scoopable. Push the orange lids slightly diagonally into the ice cream. Top the Orange Ice Cream cups off with some freshly zested orange and some mint leaves.
