Tangy Valencia Orange Gelatin

Complete your meal with a refreshing fruit gelatin. Adding fruits to your meal will help to better balance your daily diet. All you need is hot water, fresh oranges, sugar and gelatin-making it is as easy as 1-2-3!

Ingredients (serves 4):

  • 3-4 large Valencia or Navel oranges
  • 1 envelope (7g) unflavored gelatin
  • 3 Tbsp. sugar
  • 2 oz. (60 mL) boiling water (212°F or 208°F)
  • Cold water if necessary to make 1 cup (240 mL) of orange juice


  • Ice water in separate container for chilling
  • Four 3.3 oz. cups

Peel and segment one orange, cut into half inch pieces then set aside.



Squeeze all remaining oranges to make 1 cup (240 mL) of orange juice. If it is less than 1 cup, add water to make 1 cup.


In a medium bowl, place 3 Tbsp. of orange juice from the liquid you just made, sprinkle an envelope of gelatin and let stand 1 minute. 



Add sugar to the bloomed gelatin, pour boiling water and stir until gelatin dissolves completely, about 3 minutes.


Add orange juice (liquid) from step 2 and orange pieces from step 1 to the bowl and mix well.


Place the bowl over ice water, stir and chill gelatin until it becomes slightly thick.


Pour mixture into jelly/pudding cups and refrigerate until firm, about 3 hours. 


Remove the gelatin from the container and serve.
