Blood Orange and Coconut Sorbet

Here’s to the season of blood oranges! Chefs and citrus lovers alike wait all year long for the short period between January and March of each year to get their hands on blood oranges.  Since we’re nearing the end of the season, I wanted to celebrate and make the most delicious, creamy sorbet around. It’s a super easy, healthy and low-calorie dessert that takes just 15 minutes to make.?

This Blood Orange & Coconut Sorbet is the perfect way to enjoy the subtle, floral flavour of blood oranges with a stronger flavour such as coconut. I came up with the idea when I was gorging down on coconut chips – that’s my latest snack obsession and let me tell you, they are goooooood. I’ve got a link to my favourite brand on my shop page – trust me, they are addictive!?

Did you know that sometimes people call in to Sunkist to report their oranges have gone bad when they buy blood oranges? ? Since they are available for such a short time of the year, the dark red colour can be shocking to some people. Really, blood oranges are rare, beautifully coloured citrus with just a hint of raspberry with a more delicate than tart flavour when compared to navel oranges.

I always think citrus pairs nicely with coconut, and the toned-down flavour of the blood oranges fits especially well in a sorbet. This isn’t your average bright and colourful, overly fruity sorbet – it’s more of a hybrid between sorbet and ice cream. ? And who doesn’t love coconut?

Top these delicious sorbets with coconut chips and serve in martini glasses for an extra pop of presentation – these sorbets are perfect for a party or social gathering, but that’s not to say you can’t enjoy yourself after a long hard day while catching up on all your favourite prime time shows!
