I read somewhere on the Vitamix site that approx 8 ice cubes was equal to 1 cup. On this recipe, it's calling for 4 1/2 cups = 11 ice cubes. Can someone please help on this?
So 1 cup = 8 cubes 4.5 cup = 36 cubes ( 8 * 4.5)

Do you also leave the seeds in the oranges when tossing in the blender?
You can leave the seeds in or take them out, if you prefer.

I can't seem to save to recipe book. I opened an account, but when I go to recipe book, only one recipe (the first one I did is in there). What am I doing wrong?

In making this orange sorbet don't u need to add some sort of liquid to it? When i made it and was pushing my igrediants down with the tamper my vitamix was making some pretty strange sounds.
You could have been getting an air pocket in the mixture. The juice from the oranges should be enough liquid. You want to make sure you are adding the ingredients to the container in the order listed in the recipe, starting with the oranges first.

A big e demo they served a lemon lime sorbet made with coconut water agave etc but can't find recipe online or book? Very good and would like to make
You can substitute the orange with the lime, the agave with the sugar and add 1/4 cup coconut water and that should work. We do not have the exact recipe that the demonstrator was using.

I am assuming that I can make ahead and put in small containers and freeze. Is that correct? I am going to feed an athletic group and was going to put in small styrofoam cups with lids into the freezer so that are ready when they are.
Yes you can go ahead and freeze them in individual serving portions. Remove them from the freezer about 10-15 minutes ahead of time to allow them to slightly thaw so that they can be spooned.
