Coffee Sago Jelly

Coffee Sago Jelly

If you like coffee, this coffee sago jelly is surely your type of dessert! This jelly is made using agar agar powder which is vegan friendly

Jelly on a plate, jelly on a plate, wibble wobble wibble wobble jelly on a plate! I guess everyone is familiar with this nursery rhyme especially if you have young children at home. This song describes exactly how’s jelly texture should be which is jiggly and wobbly. Jelly is usually made from gelatin, fruits and sugar in many Western recipes.

In others Asia countries like Japan, jelly can also be made with agar agar powder, a vegan version of gelatin. This types of jelly give you a firmer texture and are often incorporate with milk. In Japan, coffee flavour jelly is one of the top favourite. You can have your jelly serve in a glass pairing with some fruits and cream, cut into small cubes and serve with milk tea, coffee or simply enjoy it on it own.

Sago on the other hand are very popular in Asia countries like Thailand and Malaysia. It is made from Tapioca and are often used to make desserts like pudding or top with ice shaved.

Today, I’m incorporate both coffee jelly and sago in one recipe – Coffee Sago Jelly. The ingredients I’m using include coffee powder, cocoa powder, sago, agar agar powder, sugar, coconut milk and water. I made 9 coffee jellies using mini tart molds in this recipe and add extra milk and chia seeds to make another 2 coffee breakfast puddings! What a great 2 in 1 recipe you get! You should be able to make 12 coffee jellies without the breakfast pudding.
