  • 1 liter natural squeezed orange juice, tangerine or both.
  • 8 gelatin leaves or sheets (if powdered, refer to the package for instructions)
  • Sugar (60gr), or the preferred honey or sweetener equivalent


  • We squeeze oranges or tangerines
  • Let’s strain the juice so it’s fine, no lumps.
  • Put the gelatin leaves or sheets to hydrate in cold water for 5 to 10 minutes until the water dissolves and drains.
  • In a heated saucepan without boiling, half the juice along with sugar or sweetener
  • Mix the drained sheets into the scoop by adding the rest of the juice and mix it all together
  • Pour the contents into the cups leaving to cool and once cooled we will put them in the fridge for at least 2-3 hours. When it cools down, it’s when it’s curdling.
  • One detail to keep in mind is that we should cover them so that they do not absorb odors.
