Well, this dessert is splendid cos it contains citrus fruits (mandarins and grapefruits), is cold as it is refrigerated, and the best part is that I don't need to switch on the oven and make myself even hotter than I already was. It's also flat out easy to make, say, ten minutes top? Okay, maybe not ten minutes if you count the peeling fruits time and chilling time. It does take ten minutes to prepare with ready ingredients though!
Grapefruit mandarin pomegranate white tea jelly with strawberries
Pomegranates; Citrus segments; Jasmine white tea bag; Jelly without strawberries
Peeling those citrus segments were really a pain in the ass, you gotta remove all the membranes and seeds so that only the juicy bits are left. Also, some people might find obtaining the pomegranate seeds from the fruit might be a bit troublesome. So it really is great that from one pomegranate, you can get roughly a small cup of seeds for the dessert.
Oh, it just occurred to me that I have yet to list the recipe source. Haha. Totally love the mytartelette website. Lots of awesome food photography and every post has a really interesting story behind it. I'm so motivated to try out half of all those recipes... ;)
Grapefruit mandarin pomegranate white tea jelly
The taste of these fruit cups were sooooooooooo good that I actually made them twice in a week. That explains why there's some pictures with strawberries and some without. I first made it without. Then cos I had another pomegranate, and grapefruits and strawberries lying around, it really didn't take me very long to decide if I should make more. This was a totally refreshing dessert to eat, cooling in this hot hot weather. Ice-cream would be too fattening to have too often, and these are great cos the only unhealthy thing is the minimal amount of sugar you add (which you can even omit if you want to be totally healthy). And there's fruits! Fruits are good for the body! Rights? (: This is a keeper and I can see myself making this very often in the future! Can't wait to try find more of such jelly desserts recipes. I'm so not daunted by gelatine already. Here I come, gelatine-based desserts!
