Soy Milk Pineapple Jelly


















I would make this soy milk jelly occasionally for the kids and Jo would love to have this ready in the fridge all the time , so that she can have them for dessert or when she craves for something sweet. Easy to make and it is such a versatile jelly . You can add in any canned fruits or fresh fruit you want,  or you can have them plain. Either way, it is one mouth-watering jelly. It  has a not too wobbly and not to hard texture but a silky smooth texture that we love :)



















I have a can of pineapple in the pantry and it is time to use it before it expired on me. I bought it for making upside down cake but too lazy to make it , and use it for the jelly instead :)



















set them in ramekins and it is easy to take them out of the ramekin and serve them as a whole piece. I am sure your dinner guest would love this chilled jelly for their dessert. Something simple yet taste good.  A very refreshing soy milk dessert...good for the adults and the youngsters. You can serve this to toddlers too but without the fruits in case they choke on them.


















You can add canned lychee, longan, fresh strawberry, raspberry , kiwis and seedless grapes to this jelly. I used to make this for church functions and it was a great hit with the adults and teens :) but for this Christmas pot bless , I will be making egg sandwiches for a change :)

Ingredients:


(A)

1 liter unsweetened soy milk
1/2 cup of castor sugar * you can add more if you have sweeth tooth
3 screwpine leaves – tie into a knot

(B)

1.5 tsp of agar-agar powder plus some cold soymilk ( to prevent lumps )

1 can of pinecapple cubes * you can use any fruits to your likes


Preparation:

Boil the above (A) together in a pot under low heat till the sugar has dissolved and the aroma of screwpines filled the air. Add in the agar-agar powder mixture and stir till it is well incorporated into the soy milk. Off the fire and pour into ramekins, add in pineapple cubes and leave it to cool. 

Leave it in the fridge till it has totally set, it will normally take 3 hours to set. Tilt the ramekin , if no runny liquid seeps out ,then it has set though .

* For easy removal of jelly from the ramekin, place ramekins bottom in warm water for a a minute.

  1. oh we used to make alot of these to serve relatives during CNY, but with canned lychee & longan instead. It's usually extremely hot during that time, a refreshing dessert is vital! :)
