  1. 5 leaves of beef gelatine (platinum grade)
  2. 600ml clementine juice (roughly 20 clementines)
  3. caster sugar, to taste
  4. a small piece of fresh ginger
  5. 2 clementines
  6. 1 heaped teaspoon vanilla syrup or a few drops of vanilla extract
  7. 200g natural fat-free yoghurt
  8. good-quality dark chocolate (70% cocoa solids), to serve


  1. Measuring jug
  2. 2 bowls
  3. Saucepan
  4. Chopping board
  5. Knife
  6. Microplane or grater
  7. 6 serving glasses (200ml each)
  8. Sieve


1. Pour 500ml cold water into a bowl with the gelatine leaves and soak for a few minutes until softened. Meanwhile…

2. Squeeze the juice of roughly 20 clementines until you have 600ml of liquid. Then, pour into a pan over a low heat until warmed through.

3. Add the softened gelatine and let it dissolve, stirring occasionally. Add a little sugar to sweeten the juice, but not too much – you still want that zippy clementine flavour to come through.

4. Peel the ginger and grate a tiny bit onto the chopping board then squeeze it over the juice so you get a few drips of ginger juice in there.

5. Peel 2 clementines and slice each into thin rounds. Then, arrange 6 small serving glasses on a tray and put 2 clementine rounds into each one. Sieve the clementine mixture into each glass and put them in the fridge for at least 2 hours, or until they’re set and wobbly.

6. To serve, mix the vanilla syrup into the yoghurt and dollop a spoonful on top of each jelly, then grate or shave a few pretty bits of chocolate on top.
