We had a heat wave here in Los Angeles this past week, and it’ll start heating up in other parts of the country in short order. I was burning up this weekend and needed to cool off with a refreshing snack, so I came up with this sorbet. The results are astoundingly simple and refreshingly tart.

Blood oranges are just coming into season and are my absolute favorite citrus fruit, not to mention one of the most nutrient dense. If you don’t have blood oranges, use one navel orange and a squeeze of lemon instead to achieve a similar flavor. Easy desserts like this make me wonder why store-bought sorbets include so much extra sugar, this one is sweet enough!
