Almond Jelly

Almond Jelly


"This is one of my favorite desserts that I get when I go to a Chinese restaurant. With this recipe, it is easy to make it in the comfort of your own home! Serve with some canned fruit cocktail with syrup or just some fresh fruit! It's such a refreshing dessert to enjoy and a very good change from plain gelatin."

This is a quick standby for a classic Chinese dessert. It took minutes to prepare and set within hours. The only modification I made the first time round was to reduce the sugar from 3/4 to 2/...

As many have said, this isn't like the Asian-style almond jelly in texture because this recipe calls for gelatin as opposed to agar-agar (sp.?). However, it is tasty and a great addition to a fr...

I grew up making this with my mom so it's such a nostalgic treat!! I substitute soymilk now since I've become lactose intolerant. Don't pass this up - it's so so delicious!!

My family enjoyed this so much that I ended up making it twice this week! It's really good and easy to make. The only modification I made is that I used slightly less sugar (1/2 cup) the second ...

I love to add fruit cocktails in this. I also halve the milk into 1 cup of milk, and substitute the other cup of milk of 1 cup of table cream milk (nestle kind). I noticed when I use kiwis or pi...

This is so good, so refreshing. I would suggest using the fruit cocktail with extra cherries "Very Cherry" I believe its called. I used whole milk, turned out perfect!

I couldn't find agar agar so I tried this gelatine-based recipe. I used less sugar too (1/2 cup) but still turned out to be too sweet. I also substituted part of the milk with evaporated milk (l...

Was good, but not something I'd make again. Cheap and easy.
