Rated 5 out of 5 by HotSpringCyclist from SIZE MATTERS! (Of ice, and oranges!) I think the wide variety of reviews on the Vitamix recipies are due to the vast variety of ripeness, size, quality, and type of the fruit available. The size of the ice could be specified to get a more consistent result, but fruit will always be a toss-up. What we did that made it 5 stars: Five "Cutie," brand tangerine-type oranges (they're about an inch in diameter), and one standard, manual ice cube tray of ice cubes. Followed the recipies instructions, and it made 30 oz. of perfect sorbet, with the four perfect mounds. My 11 and 9 year old boys and I wolfed it down!

Rated 4 out of 5 by fredwrgmg from Clemen...FINE Sorbet My son and I grabbed a Navel orange and added Clementines, followed this simple recipe and had a FANTASTIC dessert in less that 5 minutes. Frozen Raspberries make this treat even better! (next time we'll try mixing them right in) Sometimes 7 yr olds have the best ideas.

Rated 4 out of 5 by otterheart from Tweaked to make Orangesicle. Made to recipe except... 1. Added 1 TBS of real vanilla 2. Added 1/2 cup of half & half. Froze 2/3 of it and slurped up the rest as a smoothie. I suggest that real cream would be better or a scoop of a vanilla smoothie mix to thicken this into a sherbet vs. sorbet. I bet the sorbet is awesome. Trying it next.

Rated 1 out of 5 by john12706 from couple problems with this recipe Terrific idea in principle, but I think something's wrong with the recipe. There's no way that two oranges and 4.5 cups of ice cubes fit into my Vitamix (64 oz). I managed to get close to 3 cups of ice in there, but it was a push. Even so, the results were disappointing. Consistency and color were fine, but there was barely any sense or taste of orange. If I were to try this again I'd probably freeze some orange juice to use for the recipe.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Alan A from Terrible! This recipe contains way too much ice and not nearly enough orange. The machine can't handle 4.5 cups of ice, and the resulting product has very little taste.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Daveg from Its a good base The recipe was ok like this but when i added a half a lime to it, it really made a difference. And if you want a creamcicle just add some vanilla greek yogurt to it

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mayotes from Yummo! Very refreshing and super quick to make. Didn't have oranges, so used 4 clementines. Worked fine for us.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lisa Evers from Good Not sure why there's often a difference in recipes on their site vs recipes in their book. I made this recipe using the BOOK, which calls for 2 oranges and 4 cups of ice. I also added some chopped fresh mint to mix up the flavor. Note that this is best eaten fresh. I found it didn't freeze well ...it ended up looked like one big mound of orange 'ice' versus a sorbet with a slight texture to it...
