This sweet-tart Cranberry Orange Sorbet is a deliciously refreshing dessert!

A few weeks ago, as we were cooking for the Thanksgiving holiday, we made a fantastic cranberry orange relish to eat with this turkey leftovers recipe. That relish – made with fresh cranberries, fresh oranges and sugar – gave up some delicious juices as it sat in the jar.

Jack and I both hate to see food go to waste – so of course, we drank the juice (and there may or may not have been some vodka and triple sec involved in our juice taste-testing too!) Hey – it was the holidays! 🙂

At the time, I suggested to Jack that the sweetened cranberry and orange juice would make a delicious sorbet – and that was the recipe inspiration behind today’s Cranberry Orange Sorbet.

This sweet-tart Cranberry Orange Sorbet is a deliciously refreshing dessert!

This Cranberry Orange Sorbet whips up in minutes in a food processor – simply add orange sections, a little orange zest, fresh cranberries and sugar and process until completely puréed.  Then churn in an ice-cream maker according to manufacturer’s instructions.

This delicious sorbet makes a wonderful, refreshing dessert – or you can make your holiday dinner guests feel like they are dining at a fancy restaurant and serve this Cranberry Orange Sorbet as a ‘palate cleanser’ in between courses at your family meal.
