Orange Agar Agar

Someone I gave this to thought it was an actually orange. It's looks and taste nice. My son loved it!

  • 5 oranges
  • 6 tablespoon sugar (depending on how sweet you want)
  • Clear agar agar powder

How to do it:
  1. Wash the oranges and cut it into halves.
  2. Squeeze the juice out. Be careful not to damage the orange skins.
  3. Scoop out the remaining orange pulp.
  4. Measure the orange juice you have and set aside.
  5. To make the agar agar, boil water required as instructed on the pack MINUS the amount of orange juice you have.
  6. Stir in the sugar till dissolved. Add more sugar if your orange juice is sour.
  7. Turn of heat and add in the orange juice.
  8. Pour the orange juice agar agar to the orange cups.
  9. Before that, make sure you put the orange cups on your drinking cups so it doesn’t topple when you pour the juice in.
  10. Chill till it set.
  11. Cut the orange agar agar into 3 slices and serve.
  • Do not cook the orange juice otherwise it will turn bitter.
  • You use carton orange juice too.
  • If you do not have a juicer, you can use a fork to poke in the orange and twist. Do it for a few times (not on the same spot lah). As you do that, squeeze the juice out at the same time. Works the same as a juicer.


    1. yeah! i learn this from a colleague too :)

    2. i tried once... but my mixture turn hard once i pour the orange juice on it if i turn off the heat.. any solution.. im using konnyaku

    3. Jolene,
      Hmmm ... interesting! I have not tried using konnyaku with orange juice so not sure what's the problem. Maybe I will try this weekend to test it.

      Use Cai Yan (agar-ager) sure can make it!

      i tested on both tray and orange skin ... end up the orange skin konnyaku was nicer

    5. Jolene,
