Bitter Orange and White Chocolate Soft Serve

A Philadelphia-style ice cream which doesn't contain any eggs!



2 whole oranges
1 cup of full cream milk
1 cup of cream
1 cup double cream
3/4 cup caster sugar
pinch of salt
100g chopped white chocolate


Place the oranges in a pot and cover them with water. Bring it to the boil and simmer for 45 minutes.

Remove the oranges, let it cool down to room temperature and place in a food processor. Blitz the oranges until a smooth silky pulp.

Mix the orange pulp with all the other ingredients, except the white chocolate. Place in an ice cream maker and churn according to the manufacturer instructions.

Once churned, fold in the chocolate and freeze the ice cream for a few hours to firm up but still have a soft consistency, and serve. 

* This ice cream is rich and creamy, with an underlying bitter flavor thanks to the boiled oranges. It is best served if you freeze it only for a few hours after churning it, so you will get that soft-serve consistency.
