Coconut Sorbet with Orange Marmalade Swirl
Coconut sorbet with orange marmalade swirl. Rich and creamy tropical sorbet studded with bursts of orange marmalade!
It snowed yesterday and yet, here I am sharing coconut sorbet of all things. Makes total sense, right? I blame severe vacation withdrawal.
I first made this coconut sorbet several weeks ago. There is something about a tropical dessert that makes everything better, particularly during the winter months.
It almost makes me forget the fat and fluffy snowflakes falling outside my window.
As you can probably tell, this coconut sorbet is not just any ordinary coconut sorbet. It has an orange marmalade swirl! As in, you literally take some good-quality canned orange marmalade, grab a spatula, and fold it into the just-churned coconut sorbet.
It is magical, particularly the spoonfuls that contain orange rind! It is essentially the coconut version of a classic creamsicle.
The coconut takes everything over the top.
Creamsicles have always been one of my favorite ice creams. As a kid, we used to spend nearly all summer at our local pool and whenever we visited the pool’s ice cream stand, I would always choose a classic creamsicle Popsicle.
If you’re a creamsicle, coconut, or marmalade fan, I promise you will love this sorbet!
The coconut sorbet base is extremely simple to throw together (you will need an ice cream maker!) and the recipe requires just four easy-to-find ingredients. Be sure to use full-fat canned coconut milk.
It is hard to believe, but a simple combination of full fat coconut milk, granulated sugar, and a touch of vanilla bean paste (or extract) is enough to produce a ridiculously rich and creamy sorbet.
Oh, and this dessert just happens to be vegan too. Enjoy!
Coconut Sorbet with Orange Marmalade Swirl
- 2 (14.5-ounce) cans full-fat coconut milk
- ¾ cup (150g) granulated sugar
- ½ teaspoon vanilla bean paste or 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- ½ cup high-quality orange marmalade
- Before opening the cans of coconut, shake gently (this will make them easier to pour out as the fat and water tends to separate). Combine the coconut milk and sugar in medium saucepan. Place over medium-low heat and stir continuously until the sugar has completely dissolved.
- Transfer the coconut mixture to a large heatproof bowl and stir in the vanilla paste (or vanilla extract, if using). Allow mixture to cool to room temperature before transferring to the fridge. Chill until very cold.
- Pour the mixture into an ice cream maker and churn according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Transfer sorbet to a container - layered or folding in the orange marmalade. Cover the surface and freeze for a minimum of 6 hours or preferably overnight before serving.

Me me me! I’m a creamsicle, coconut, AND marmalade fan! I’ll trade my sunny weather for your snow if it means I get a bowl of this swirly sorbet!
I’ve actually been craving ice cream intensely, so this sounds awesome. In lieu of actually going to a tropical isle, of course.
This is such a good idea! I love the high contrast between sweet vanilla and tangy marmalade.
Coconut ice cream is such a dream and I love the idea of a marmalade ripple, too!
Beautiful photos! Just looking at them makes me hungry. I love coconut and oranges so this looks pretty perfect.
It’s weird. . I crave ice cream and shakes and stuff when it’s cold. . adds to the fun! 🙂 love love love this coconut sorbet and the orange marmalade swirl is perfection!
I don’t mind it either! Thanks Alice! 🙂
Snow sounds exciting! I wish it snowed more around here. This sorbet looks DELICIOUS!
Haha! I’m sure I would miss the snow if I lived in California too. I actually really like snow, it just isn’t quite as enjoyable when you’ve recently spent a week in 80+ degree temperatures 😉
Yum! I need this now! I”m pregnant and craving sweets and have been addicted to coconut ice cream made with honey and vanilla…I love the addition of marmalade!
Oh yay! I think you’ll love this! Love the idea of the honey too.
This is such a wonderful looking sorbet! And dang, I am loving that flavour combo!!
I, too, happen to be in major vacation withdrawal. I almost drove to TCBY for fro-yo at 9pm last night…wish I had had some of this in my freezer. Looks perfect to beat the cold-weather blues!
Totally feel you. And love that you went out for fro-yo last night! I need to take a visit to Pinkberry’s!
I am dreaming of warm weather and sunshine. This sorbet is taking me to my happy place right. 🙂
Oh my, I’m so sick right now, but I really could use a cup of this deliciousness! Getting that coconut milk asap!
Oh no! I’m so sorry! Feel better Shinee!
Looks good, and super easy!
Vacation withdrawl is real and hard, right?! Buuuut I think I could get over it with this dreamy looking sorbet!
Yes, it totally is! 🙁
Gluten and dairy free, this sounds fantastic and my kid would love it! 🙂
Yes! I forgot to mention gluten free 😉
I am melting in the southern hemisphere, so this icy delight is a slight for sore eyes! Delightful Laura!
A little tropical flavor in the middle of winter is the best. Love this, Laura!
Love the photo with the orange swirled into the white coconut ice cream and dotted with black flecks. Beautiful!
Thanks so much Barbara!
I absolutely LOVE orange marmalade! This sorbet looks incredible.
