Jiggly, jelly-like desserts are tasty and low in calories, but they’re usually filled with weird chemicals. They aren’t vegetarian friendly either, because gelatin is typically derived from pig or cow collagen. So the next time you want your dessert to shimmy, make it using agar. Made from seaweed, this product is odorless, tasteless, and practically calorie-free.
- 2-1/2 cups 100% fresh-squeezed fruit juice (orange, watermelon, cantaloupe juice, or other)
- 1 tsp. powdered agar
- Combine fruit juice and agar in medium saucepan. Stir to dissolve.
- Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly; boil for 1 minute. Remove from heat. Pour into molds.
- Let cool for 30 to 40 minutes at room temperature. Place in refrigerator for 1 hour or until fully set.
Tip: Powdered agar can be found at almost any gourmet grocery store or Asian food market.
