2 Cups Water
1/2 cup Sugar Syrup or Honey
2 Tablespoons fresh Mint (minced)
Cut all of the Citrus in half. Scoop out the inside pulp and juice using a small paring knife and spoon. Place in a large 4 quart container. (Reserve the Orange halves so they can be filled with the ice and used as small bowls)
Add the Water, Sugar Syrup or Honey and blend with an emersion blender until smooth.
Stir in the minced Mint and freeze 4 hours or overnight.
When ready to serve, remove the Citrus Ice from the freezer and let warm up for 10 min. Using an ice cream scoop or spoon, place the Ice into the halved Oranges and garnish with mint.
On a hot summer day there is nothing more refreshing than this dessert. All of the pulp and fruit juices are blended together giving you pure Citrus. Your will be enjoying all of the nutrients and fibers from the fruits which is so beneficial in aiding in your digestion. Any type of sweetener can be used and any amount. If you prefer a more tart ice, reduce the amount of sweetener and if you want to play with flavors, perhaps just a Lime or Lemon Ice suits you better. Also there are Blood Oranges, Meyer Lemons and Grapefruits to consider as well. Perfect, clean and hydrating.
Heat equal parts of Water and Sugar in a sauce pan until all of the Sugar crystals have dissolved.
