These healthy jellies are a great alternative to regular jelly.
The secret setting agent is agar agar which is seaweed and therefore a plant based alternative for gelatine.
It doesn’t have the same rubbery texture, it is a little firmer which has its benefits when trying to cut them into shapes and pick up with fingers.
Here’s the ingredients.
4 tbs Agar agar strands
1 1/2cups Apple juice
1/2 cup water
2 tbs xylitol
2 tbs Açai berry powder
Pour the apple juice and water into a saucepan and begin to heat.
Add the agar strands and xylitol and stir until dissolved.
Once dissolved. Take off the heat and add the açai powder. Stir until combined.
Pour the saucepan contents into a heatproof (Pyrex etc ) dish to set.
When cooled slightly, transfer to fridge to harden.
When set it will be quite firm to touch.
Use a star shaped cookie cutter to cut out your stars.
Store in the fridge in an airtight container.
Nb- you can add sliced strawberries to the jelly too.
