Coffee Jelly Recipes - Delicious Dessert Especially For Coffee Lover

You can also replace the coffee with other flavours like tea, green tea powder, chocolate milk powder and so on. Enjoy !

For more variety and creativity, you can also try the chocolate coffee jello layers. See the full recipe below.

4) Then add the gelatine mixture and coffee to the pot. Stir well.

5) When thoroughly mix, turn off the heat.

Chocolate Coffee Jello Recipe


Chocolate Coffee Jello is slightly more creative, but nevertheless another easy to make dessert. With chocolate and coffee flavour, it gives you a mocha taste; delicious and refreshing. To make this dessert, just boil the jello powder in the coconut milk, split the liquid into two portions, add coffee in one portion and chocolate in the other.

To ensure that the two layers stick to each other, scratch the top of the hardened first layer with a fork, before you pour the second portion of the liquid jello over the first. The scratches will provide the grip for the adjacent layer, and will not slip as you cut the layered jello into slices.



Ingredients for Chocolate Layer


400 mlcoconut milk

80g sugar (adjust according to desired sweetness)

1 ½ tablespoon jello powder

2 tablespoons Cocoa powder (or Milo powder)

1 teaspoon vanilla essense



Ingredients for Coffee Layer

400 mlcoconut milk

100 g sugar (adjust according to desired sweetness)

1 ½ tablespoon jello powder

2 tablespoons instant coffee powder


Method


Part 1 : Prepare the chocolate layer

1.) Add the cocoa to 50ml of coconut milk, and stir well until no lumps. Set aside.

2.) In a pot, add the jello powder to the remaining 350 ml coconut milk. Boil this mixture at medium heat until the jello powder is completely dissolved.

3.) Add vanilla essence.

4.) Stir in cocoa milk mixture.

5.) Boil the mixture for a minute before turning off the heat.

6.) Pour the chocolate jello into a square stainless steel container. Allow to cool and hardened.

Part 2 : Prepare the coffee layer

Repeat the same procedure as part 1, but replace cocoa with coffee powder, details as followed :

1.) Add the coffee to 50ml of coconut milk, and stir well. Set aside.

2.) In a pot, add the jello powder to the remaining 350 ml coconut milk. Boil this mixture at medium heat until the jello powder is completely dissolved.

3.) Stir in coffee milk mixture.

4.) Boil the mixture for a minute before turning off the heat.

Part 3 : Making the second layer

1.) Use the tip of a fork, scratch the surface of the cooled and hardened chocolate layer lightly.

2.) Pour the liquid coffee jello to the side of the chocolate layer, gently and slowly, so that it flows smoothly and evenly over the top of the chocolate layer.

3.) Allow to chill in the refrigerator before cutting into slices.




Low Fat tips

1.) If you like to cut down on coconut milk intake which is more fattening, use low-fat cow’s milk, rice or almond milk instead.

2.) Reduce the sugar quantity, or replace it with molasses or brown sugar, a healthier choice.

Hendrika, I used un-flavoured jelly. Jelly is softer than jello. To make jello, add less water, and you get a harder liquid.
