Sometimes I really just want to show you picture of a recipe and say: make this. Would you be upset if I did that? You’d have to fully trust me that it’s a must make recipe. Worth any and all effort to please your taste-buds, belly and anyone else you’d be feeding.
This is one of those recipes. It’s worth absolutely ever second of effort.
I just want you to make it. And love it. Because I am certain you’ll love it.
You know those orange creamsicle pops? Creamy vanilla ice cream, coated in a layer or bright orange sherbet? They’re ridiculously tasty and disappear too fast. This ice cream is just like that only better. I wanted to recreate it but in a better way. I didn’t want creamy smooth vanilla ice cream paired with hard sherbet. Store bought wouldn’t be a big deal because they are frozen at a lower temperature so they are softer in your own fridge. But when you make sherbet at home it’s a lot harder and takes longer than custard based ice cream to soften. Basically a recipe for disaster if you ask me. And every recipe I came across for orange ice cream or sherbet didn’t call for eggs, which meant a harder ice cream (or sherbet). I knew I wanted it to have eggs and be a creamy delicious orange ice cream paired next to a creamy amazing vanilla ice cream – thus creating the most amazing homemade orange creamsicle ice cream recipe… ever. Yes, ever.
Chocolate sprinkles are necessary. And a cone wouldn’t hurt either, but a glass or bowl is acceptable too.
I love ice cream any way you want to serve it to me. But sprinkles or chocolate sauce for this ice cream would just send it over the top. It has to be chocolate though. No rainbow sprinkles.
A bit of warning that this recipe does take more than the average ice cream recipe to make, but again… it’s completely worth it. A second freezer bowl is very helpful, but not necessary. Freeze half and continue with the rest when your bowl is frozen again.
