Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 oranges
  • 3 tablespoons freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 8 ounces vanilla ice cream or 8 ounces vanilla frozen yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon caramel topping or 1 tablespoon butterscotch topping
  • 1 tablespoon honey


  1. Cut off top of the oranges and scoop out pulp with a melon baler or serrated spoon down to the pith, or white membrane, inside orange.
  2. Reserve 3 tablespoons of juice.
  3. Cut off a thin slice from bottom of each orange so they will stand without rolling, being careful not to puncture bottom of the oranges.
  4. Soften ice cream in refrigerator for about 10 minutes. Stir in orange juice and mix well. Place ice cream mixture and empty orange shells in freezer overnight.
  5. In a small bowl, combine topping and honey. With an ice cream scoop, fill orange shells with ice cream mixture. Drizzle 1 tablespoon topping mixture over each orange.
  6. Serve immediately.
