Step 1. Cut your oranges in half and set them aside. Get your juicer and extract the orange juice. We are aiming to get 600ml of fresh orange juice.

Step 2. Resist drinking that fresh orange juice. Get another container and a strainer.

Step 3. Pour your orange juice through the strainer to remove any remaining pulp.

Step 4. Depending on the sweetness of your orange juice, add two to three tablespoons of honey.

Step 5. Add 1/2 cup of cornstarch and stir well. Once all the lumps are gone, turn on your stove and cook over medium heat until thick.

Step 6. Pour into another container and let it cool down for 10 – 15 minutes.

Step 7. Cover with cling wrap, and let it chill in the fridge for 3 hours or more.

Step 8. Gently pull the edges away from your dessert. Place in your serving place and cut into serving sizes.

Step 9. You can already taste this or to make it more presentable, you can cover each slice with desiccated coconut.

Place them on your serving plate and add one candied cherry and a mint leaf. Enjoy!

We love that this recipe doesn’t have any added sugar. Also, we all know that orange juice has lots of nutrients.

Aside from its naturally sweet and refreshing taste, it’s packed with antioxidants, micronutrients, potassium, and folate.

They used honey in this delicious dessert, which is high in calcium, manganese, niacin, magnesium, and zinc.

One comment said that they tried using lemon and more honey and it was delicious.

That’s another version of this healthy dessert. Now, can you guess the other fruits that you can use?

Mangoes and pineapples would also be a great substitute for oranges.

You can also experiment with other fruits.
