Preparing a tasty and nutritious dessert does not involve investing in exotically named ingredients or premium superfoods. Simply mixing orange juice and cornstarch instantly results in a delicious dessert on your pan. It bears resemblance to fruit jelly, yet possesses a sturdier texture and can be conveniently sliced into smaller portions.

Dessert from two ingredients

When I presented this treat to my sister-in-law, she was in disbelief over its simplicity. Without hesitation, she fetched her phone and jotted down the recipe. It's truly simple - orange juice and cornstarch. The thickening qualities of cornstarch metamorphoses the beverage into a visually appealing snack.

If you prefer a more firm texture to the dessert, opt for agar or gelatin. It will certainly impress jelly enthusiasts.

  • 2.11 cups of orange juice,
  • 2.12 ounces of cornstarch.

Preparation Instructions:

  1. Strain the orange juice for clarity and removal of membranes. Squeezing fresh fruit is optimal, but if that's not feasible, pick a high quality 100 percent juice.
  2. Add cornstarch to the juice, ensuring thorough mixing to prevent clumping.
  3. Pour the mixture into the pan and initiate heating at medium intensity, stirring continuously.
  4. Once the mixture thickens, allow it to cool off the heat for half an hour.
  5. Post-cooling, transfer the dessert to a plate and portion it for serving.
