  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup orange juice (Juice of 3 oranges)

Note

*RAW EGG WARNING
Food Network Kitchens suggest caution in consuming raw and lightly cooked eggs due to the slight risk of salmonella or other food-borne illness. To reduce this risk, we recommend you use only fresh, properly refrigerated, clean grade A or AA eggs with intact shells, and avoid contact between the yolks or whites and the shell.

Directions

Step 1
In a bowl, beat the cream with a whisk until soft peaks form. Set aside.
