Coconut milk agar jellies

These are the coconut milk kanten jellies that I made. After making the basic jelly mix below, I then made 4 variations. The one at the bottom right looks a bit lumpy, because the mixture was already setting.

The 4 variations, clockwise from top left: with chopped strawberries (add gradually, topping up with jelly mix as you go so that the strawberries do not sink to the bottom), added dessicated coconut, added dessicated coconut with chopped strawberries, basic mix. I wouldn't add the dessicated coconut again - I think it's better smooth.

4g pack of agar (kanten)
250ml of water
250ml of coconut milk
4 teaspoons honey

  • Prepare any fruit that you want to add to the jellies.
  • Heat the water to simmering point and sprinkle the contents of the sachet in, stiring continuously. Continue stirring for 1 -2 minutes until the agar is fully dissolved and there are no lumps.
  • Remove from the heat and stir in the coconut milk and honey. Mix well.
  • Working quickly, pour the mix into individual containers, adding other ingredients.
