I don't know if you know about Philippe Conticini, who is one of the most fabulous and famous French Pastry chief, and one of my favorite ones.

He creates remarkable pastries and cakes, and here comes a light dessert deriving from one of his recipes. I say deriving because I did not have all the ingredients to make the original one. But I had some nice others that appeal to me. Some flavors which can be perfectly associated.

I wanted to have a light and fresh dessert. Even if the weather looks like winter time actually, I wanted to have some this fresh but warm in flavor, like some Indian dishes.

After tasting : it was what I expected. A real good surprise !

I hope you will enjoy it as we had.

4 oranges
350 ml orange juice
1 lemon juice
1 tablespoon cornflour
1 tablespoon shredded coconut
1 teablespoons rose tea (or jasmine tea)

Divide among dessert cups.
