Vegan Coconut Orange Curd 🍊A lightly sweet, citrusy, creamy spread to enjoy on freshly baked scones, biscuits and quick breads. Or whatever you like!
I was in the mood to make something new with my crop of fresh oranges. I’d never made a citrus curd before, so I thought I would give it a try!
I found an interesting recipe for vegan lemon curd on The Minimalist Baker, and using it as a jump-off point, I created this version which I call Vegan Coconut Orange Curd.

Wouldn’t you know it? I made this and then realized we needed something to enjoy it with. So we made cranberry scones!
The results were delicious! Silky smooth, not too sweet, not too tart. The subtle flavor and richness of the coconut cream was nicely offset by the bright taste of the fresh orange. This was such a great addition to the scones. Just right!
