Vanilla Ice Cream with Hot Orange Sauce

Posted October 13th, 2009 in Food 2 Comments »

Although I’m not a big fan of citrus fruits, I push myself to buy them and eat regularly. I don’t mean I don’t like them, I just prefer other fruits. The reason for trying eating citrus fruits is that they are high in vitamins. Especially when I’m sick I eat oranges/grape fruits, or squeeze out lemon juice and drink it with water.

Vitamin C, contained in citrus fruits, works on your skin and bones (helps absorption of collagen, decrease melanin on your skin, etc), lower stress level, helps increasing immunity against virus, and much more.

This hot orange sauce gives a great refreshing taste and it matches with rich vanilla ice cream. Pour the sauce while hot and serve immediately.

<Ice Cream with Hot Orange Sauce> 2 serves

  • 1/2 orange
  • 100ml orange juice
  • sugar
  • 1tbs Cointreau
  • 2 serves vanilla ice cream
  1. Cut off orange skin, and remove just orange flesh (segments).
  2. In a sauce pan (non aluminium pan) place orange flesh, orange juice and sugar, then turn on the heat. Simmer for few minutes, just to reduce the amount of liquid. (not completely) Turn off the heat.
  3. When it’s not too hot but still warm add Cointreau and pour over ice cream.
  4. Serve immediately.
