No Churn Orange Saffron Ice-cream

By Priya Srinivasan - I Camp in My Kitchen - Friday, June 19, 2015

The last in the series of Ice-creams, is this flavorful, citrus-y Orange ice-cream. 2 days before, while idling in FB, i saw this post in a group, I totally fell in love with the way it was served, when checked the you tube link, it is similar to the pomegranate ice-cream. 
I was bit hesitant to try orange and cream, was scared whether the cream will curdle or people might not love that taste. But to my surprise, it is a super hit. The small change i made to the original recipe, is the saffron and liquid glucose. Do try adding saffron, it gives you a mild taste in between the orange creaminess. 
Everybody at home loved it and they had this for breakfast, can you believe?? yes, after i finished clicking the photos, both my hubby and my kiddo sat together and finished the glasses, clean!!!

5 nos oranges
2 generous pinches of saffron
1 cup whipping cream (fat content 35%)
1/4 cup sugar
1 tbsp liquid glucose
juice of half a lemon
a drop of red color, i used gel color (if you have orange, use it)
  • Juice the oranges first. I first tried to cut the top of the orange like a shell and  scoop out the flesh of it using spoon. But the skin was very delicate, it started tearing apart. So, i simply cut them into two halves and extracted the juice using the old orange squeeze juicer. Try to use the juice along with that pulp, it gives a nice citrus burst in your mouth.
  • Add sugar and lemon juice to the extracted orange juice,stir well and set aside until use. I used normal sugar, so i stirred well with a spoon for it to dissolve well. you can also use powdered sugar, to skip that stirring.
  • In another large bowl, take the whipping cream, whisk using an electric blender until soft peaks form. Add saffron and whip again for a minute. Now add the orange juice, liquid glucose and food color to it and whip again, for it to blend well. 
  • Pour the blended cream into a freezer-safe plastic box with lid. Freeze atleast 6-8 hours or overnight. 
  • While serving, take out the ice-cream and leave it on the counter for 10 minutes. Use an ice-cream scoop spoon for easy handling, scoop and top it with your favorite toppings and serve.
