Warning: Dangerously addictive.
Hi, you guys! Did you miss me? I know, it’s only been like a hot second since we last spoke, and I am coming at you with one more recipe on the same day, buuuuut I have a very good reason!
1. Delicious Honey-Orange Curd. ’nuff said?
2. Organic, NON GMO, good for you things!
There are certain events in a person’s life that call for citrus puddings. Right now, like right this very second, Winter is that event.
Oranges = Winter
You know what tops that? Orange-Dessert! Of course!
AND what tops that?!
Desserts made with good-for-you components! Things like, Organic, Non GMO, all-natural and pure ingredients.
See? Suddenly things are looking reeeeal good for us.
Can we talk about something semi-related for a minute?
Two words. MELT Organic.
That would be that pretty little container up there, filled with luscious butter improvements that are good for you!
Bonus? MELT Organic is made with a blend of the healthiest fruit and plant based oils, and each variety supports healthy weight when replacing other fats in your daily diet.
That being said, today’s dessert is already a rock star!
So far, I know that MELT tastes delicious on pancakes and toast, but surprisingly, it also bakes/cooks/melts just like butter. And it’s 22 calories LESS than butter!
To satisfy my citrus cravings, and to update my Lemon Curd recipe, I used MELT’s “Honey MELT Organic” which is made with certified organic virgin coconut oil and palm fruit oil. It’s soy-free, dairy-free, and dang delicious. I had to stop myself from eating it straight out of the container.
Consequently, I made Honey-Orange Curd and ate it straight from the jar.
Then, surprise guests (my Mom and Dad) showed up and the half-cup I had left over, I piped it inside these cute tartlets, topped ’em with berries and mint, and TADA! Dessert is served! I bet you wish you were there for that moment. 😉
Now it’s your turn to try MELT and feel good about it. Hop over to MELT Store Locator to get started.

- Remove from heat and whisk in the butter; continue to whisk until melted and smooth.
- Cool mixture to room temperature.
- Store refrigerated in an airtight container for about a week.
