Moustalevria – Greek Grape Juice Bites


How delicious are the sweet Greek grapes and how delicious this dessert.

I presented this dish last year and this year I changed the recipe of the traditional moustralevria recipe as I wanted to prepare small pudding bites.

The change consisted in boiling the juice until I had only half of the volume, I did not change the other ingredients, but instead of pouring sesame seeds on the pudding I used them to coat the bottom of the bites.

You need:

  • 8 cups fresh grape juice
  • 1/2 cup sugar, to taste ( depends on the quality of the grape juice)
  • 8 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 3 rose-scented geranium leaves (optional)
  • Cinnamon to taste
  • roughly crushed roasted almonds or walnuts
  • sesame seeds


  1. In 2 cups of grape juice, dilute the corn starch, whisk well..
  2. In a large pot pour the rest of grape juice.
  3. Add the leaves and bring to boil.
  4. Boil at low temperature until you get only the half of the volume or even less.
  5. Remove leaves
  6. Add the diluted corn starch and keep stirring.
  7. Boil until entire mixture is creamy.
  8. Add almonds and cinnamon.
  9. Remove from heat.
  10. Pour the cream in a greased mold.
  11. Set to cool. Cover with plastic wrap before placing in refrigerator.
  12. Cut into bites, coat the bottom of the pieces with sesame seed and place on a serving dish.

Tip: instead of 8 cups grape juice you can use 7 cups of grapes  juice and one of wine! Why not?
