Jelly is soft, sweet, and so yummy! However, it is often made with gelatin which is not vegan-friendly! We’re here to show you how to make five unique, vegan jelly recipes for your belly!
This Red Currant Jelly With Basil Syrup gets its gelatinous texture from agar agar, a natural ingredient that comes from red algae. The jelly is infused with the flavors of red currant and is naturally sweetened with apple juice.
Pineapple Pepper Jelly sounds a little crazy but it’s actually amazing! Serve a little with basic scrambled tofu or in savory sandwiches. Or, use the jelly in quesadillas made with your favorite vegan cheese!
This Fruit Jelly is a classic! It’s a fun, multicolored dessert that still has an air of elegance. Champagne, agar agar, and sugar come together to create the translucent base and the fruit mixed in provides the array of displayed color and of course, the sweetness in every bite
This Kyauk Kyaw: Burmese Coconut Jelly is deceptively creamy and rich! This coconut kyauk kyaw is a simple, refreshing treat that uses only five ingredients. Serve it chilled for a bite of something sweet and cold on a hot day.
This Mango and Coconut Jelly is vibrant and perfect for summer! The mango adds extravagance, with its pronounced, sweet, and tangy flavor. The creaminess of the coconut complements the sharp flavor of the mango.
