I am in nigella lawson's recipes mood, this is another recipe from her show. I have been eyeing on this recipe for quite a long time and since summer is here i finally decided to try it out. This recipe is such a easy one, you need just 4 ingredients and you dont need a icecream maker to make this, plus you dont have to keep on whipping them up when they are freezing like you do for normal icecream. So simple and it has a real fragrant and taste of oranges and lemons..So yum on this hot summer season..
Freezing Time : Overnight
Makes : 250 ml
Cream - 1 cup ( i used 25% fat amul fresh cream)
Icing Sugar / Confectioners Sugar - ½ cup + more if needed
Orange - 1 large
Lemon - 1 large
First zest the orange and lemon. Now squeeze them through a strainer into a bowl.
Add the zest and icing sugar. Mix so the sugar is melted.
Add in cream and whip till it is little thick, not too thick.
Now pour this in a container and freeze overnight.
Scoop and serve.
