Vegan orange ice cream - especially delicious with blood orange

This is an example of the variation of the basic recipe from the article Making vegan ice cream the easy way. I made this ice cream with blood oranges, hence the beautiful red coloring. The soy products make the ice cream completely without animal products.

Preparation of vegan orange ice cream

  • Dissolve sugar with water in a pot with some heat.
  • Scrape out a small piece (1-2 cm) of the vanilla bean and stir in.
  • Stir in the soy cream with a whisk until a homogeneous mass is formed.
  • Peel the orange. Remove the white peel residues as thoroughly as possible and cut the oranges roughly into pieces.
  • Then puree the sugar mixture together with the oranges, soy drink and lemon juice in a blender.
  • If you don't like the slightly bitter taste of the white orange peel, pass the mixture through a fine sieve.
  • Allow the ice cream mixture to cool in the refrigerator.
  • Freeze in the ice cream maker (about 30 minutes) or in the freezer every 30 minutes, stirring well with a mixer (about 4 h in total).

If you keep the vegan orange ice cream longer in the freezer, it becomes very hard. Therefore, you should let it thaw in the refrigerator for about 30-50 minutes before eating.

Things to know about oranges

  • Ripe oranges can be recognized mainly by their fruity smell. If they are also fresh, they yield slightly under pressure, but are still firm.
  • Older oranges may already have a somewhat musty odor and give way noticeably under pressure.
  • If an orange does not yield at all under pressure, it is usually already dry inside. You should avoid these.
  • It is best to buy small to medium sized fruits as they are often more aromatic.
  • Oranges should be stored in a cool, dry place, for example wrapped in a kitchen towel in the crisper.
  • If the oranges still need to ripen, then it is best to store them at room temperature together with apples.
  • If you have bought organic oranges, you can use the peel for various purposes. I usually dry them cut into small pieces at room temperature and use them for teas.
