Are you a person who loves soft drinks but avoid them because of the extra calories they add in your diet? Then this recipe is definitely for you! Ever since I have tried Mogu Mogu, making a homemade version of it was always on my mind and here it is! Homemade mogu mogu, which tastes better than the store bought one and its super healthy.
INGREDIENTS USED IN MAKING HOMEMADE MOGU MOGU
Mogu Mogu is a Nata de Coco juice drink, the jelly of the drink is made of coconut water and artificial ingredients. To make homemade Mogu Mogu I have used fresh coconut water to make it as healthy as possible. It tastes exactly like the Nata de coco jelly in mogu mogu.
To make my Mogu Mogu more flavour full I have used this caster sugar. As the coconut water is already a little sweet you just have to add a little to give it a better flavour. If you want you can also use powdered sugar which is made by blending granulated sugar in the blender. Do not use brown sugar or jaggery.
It is a vegetarian alternate to gelatine. It is a helpful culinary ingredient and can be used to thicken soups, make jams and jellies, custards, ice creams and other desserts that need to gelatinize and set. This is the most important ingredient to set nata de coco. You can use gelatin also. Which ever is available to you. I have used this agar agar powder.
Since this recipe is in orange flavour, I have used fresh orange juice which makes this drink super refreshing and healthy. You can also add store bought orange juice or any other flavour you like. Jelly in this homemade Mogu Mogu pairs well with any juice.
TIPS TO MAKE HOMEMADE MOGU MOGU
If using gelatin instead of agar agar, bloom the gelatin first in cold water and then add it to the boiling coconut water. Mix well until gelatin is fully dissolved.
You can use stevia also instead of sugar, but as stevia is 5 times sweeter than normal sugar, add 10-12 drops only.
If using store bought coconut water, try avoiding sugar because tetra packed coconut water is generally sweet.
Make sure you use cold orange juice and not the one at room temperature.
EQUIPMENTS USED IN MAKING HOMEMADE MOGU MOGU
The kind of equipment you use in the kitchen makes a huge difference to the end result! I would always recommend you to use quality gadgets and other equipment to make your cooking and baking game strong.
For orange juice I have used borosilandyou cold press juicer for the fresh orange juice. It is so stylish and also separates the pulp from the juice, which is too satisfying to watch. It’s easy to assemble, disassemble, clean and use!
