Delicious and incredibly easy to make blood orange curd! It's made with handful of ingredients, and they are all vegan!
Unusual, mid-week post from me! We are still going through this snow blizzard over here, and as predicted, most of the country is suffering with snow-induced chaos...
So to keep myself warm and cosy, I've been experimenting with some recipes in my kitchen, and this vegan blood orange curd is one of them!
Blood orange season doesn't last anywhere near long enough in the UK, and I think they are just too beautiful not to be used and featured on the blog. I also can't believe that I've never featured them before... So, trying to make up for it with this sweet, delicious and super simple vegan blood orange curd today will be a good start, right?
I'm relatively new to the curd, as it goes. But I've been seeing it around a lot lately, and hearing all the good things about it... so I couldn't help it but try it for myself. And... I'm already hooked! The possibilities for using this vegan blood orange curd are endless, and making this white chocolate cake with it was the first thing on my list! But why stop there? It can also be used on your breakfast pancakes or porridge, in a pie, or as a filler for cookies and biscuits! Some may even say that it tastes great on toast (I'm yet to try it...)!
As you can see, there are many things to try this delicious spread with, so I better be off then! But I will see you very soon, with another exciting recipe!
Vegan Blood Orange Curd
- 2 large blood oranges (zest and juice)
- 4 tablespoon cornflour (or arrowroot powder or cornstarch)
- 5 tablespoon agave syrup
- 220 ml soya milk
- Place all the ingredients in a blender until smooth.
- Transfer the mixture into a small saucepan and place on a small heat. Keep stirring until it comes to boil and thickens. The mixture should be smooth.
- Transfer into a small jar or container and allow it to set for few minutes.
Please note that all my recipes are developed and tested in metric grams. I recommend that you use digital scales for a more accurate results. I have provided a conversion to US customary in the recipe but please note that I haven’t tested using this method.
- The curd will set more as it cools, you can place it in the fridge to cool it down quicker.
- If you prefer the curd to be sweeter, just adjust the amount of agave nectar.
- You can store it in the fridge for up to 5 days
Hi! What are the measurements for the juice? Just wanted to make sure i measure correctly.
Hi Oriana, I haven't actually measured the juice of oranges for this recipe, I just used 2 medium blood oranges. Quick Google search suggests that there is roughly about 1/4 cup of juice in a medium orange, so around half cup would be the good starting point. Hope this helps.
This is delicious! We reduced the amount of starch and it still turned out a bit too thick, but it tasted incredible. We'll just reduce it next time. Thank you for sharing the recipe 🙂
Hi Laura! Thanks so much for your lovely comment! I'm so glad to hear that you have tried and liked this orange curd!
I've been looking for a good use for my blood oranges! This is so creative Anna and can be used on so many things!
The possibilities are endless with this curd Jess! You are absolutely right! I've made vegan sponge cake with this curd over the weekend, and it tastes like heaven! Glad you like this one! Thanks for stopping by!
This looks and sounds incredible!
Thanks Cassidy, glad you like it!
This recipe is so clever; I've never heard of blood orange curd before! My husband was just saying how much he loves lemon curd, but I think he'd like this one better because he's crazy about blood oranges. I'm totally going to surprise him with this soon. Thanks so much!
That's so great to hear, I really hope he will like this recipe! Great way to preserve these beautiful blood oranges!
Curd. It's such a funny word. Doncha think? Move the letters around a little and it's not a fun word at all! Haha. But it tastes SO GOOD! So, sometimes there's just not much in a name. But blood orange curd? Gosh. Just sounds so so good! Can't wait!
Haha, Marly, that made me giggle!
And thanks so much, I really hope you will try this one! It's too good not to!
I have never had cuts and I am so intrigued, this looks good!
I'm quiet new to the curd scene too Jasmine, but it's delicious! And it has soooo many uses! Hope you will try it!
I love lemon curd so much, so I know that I'm going to love your blood orange curd. Thanks for sharing, and stay warm!
Thanks so much, if you like the lemon curd, then this one is for you too! Hope you will try it soon!
YUMMMYYYY!!! This looks delicious Anna! And the pictures are so beautiful! I can't imagine still having snow at this point- we are just now seeing the beginnings of spring time here in the southern states!
Hey Randi! I know, it's unheard of in the UK to have so much snow, especially at this time of the year! Jealous to hear you already enjoying beginning of spring!
Heard about the snow blizzard on the news! I can only imagine how crazy it is over there :). Hope it gets back to normal for you soon. Love your photos and I bet that curd tastes just amazing!
Oh Julia, it's crazy! Although, coming from Poland, I'm familiar with tons of snow and bitter cold, having it in the UK always causes a huge chaos! 😉 And thanks so much, I hope you will get a chance to try this curd, because it really is delicious!
I would love to give this a try!
You should Rebecca, it's so yum! And ready in no time!

Ohh yum! That looks delicious! I've been loving blood oranges. Winter citrus is the best!
It is! Mainly because it's bright colours are so much needed in these winter months! And blood oranges are my favourite! Glad you like it!
What a great idea for a curd! It sounds so bright and delicious and I would totally have it on biscuits! I'll bet it would make a great filling in some macarons as well!
Hey Amy, I can't wait to try it on some biscuits, and yes, macarons are a great shout too! Thanks so much!
Nothing like a bit of blood orange curd spread on a scone to brighten a snowy day! I wish we had blood oranges year round!
Wouldn't that be amazing?!? And I didn't even think of using it on scones! Genius!

I've made curd every which way but vegan, love this!
Thanks Sue! It's quite new to me too, with the difference that I have never made it it before, but it's so delicious! How could I have live without it for so long?!?
