Vegan Orange Curd

Vegan Orange Curd

Going vegan doesn’t mean having to give up all your favorites, including tangy Limoneira® orange curd. This version uses non-dairy milk, and achieves the same kind of creamy, delectable flavor and texture. You can use to top desserts like ice cream and cakes, spread it on toast, add a spoonful to your yogurt, fill cakes and muffins with it, and much more.

  • 5 large Limoneira® oranges juice only
  • 1 Limoneira® lemon juice only
  • 4 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/3 cup caster sugar
  • 1/3 cup non-dairy milk
  • 3 tablespoons vegan butter


  • Measure the cornstarch into a saucepan, and stir constantly as you add the orange and lemon juices.
  • Now, add the sugar, and then the milk, as you continue to whisk constantly to ensure a smooth texture.
  • Over a medium-low setting, cook the mixture slowly, stirring constantly until the sugar has completely dissolved.
  • Continue to cook as you stir until the curd reaches a boil. It should become very thick. Do not let it boil for more than a minute before removing from the heat.
  • Add the vegan butter and stir it into the mixture thoroughly.
  • Transfer it to a clean jar, and let it cool to set.
  • You can place it in the fridge overnight to set completely if you like.
  • It will keep up to two weeks in the fridge. Stir before using.


Note: You can make curd with Moro blood oranges, Cara Cara oranges, lemon, and other citrus. The only caveat would be that you might need to adjust the amount of sugar.
