I loved jelly with fruits in it, I also loved buttery cake. One day I told myself, “Hey, why not combine it together?”. I’m glad that I thought of it! It turn out to be so delicious, so yummy! It is refreshing when you consume it cool. You guys definitely have to try this, is just so fast and easy!

I used agar agar powder which is extracted from seaweed. It contain lots fibre, so it’s really healthy! Don’t forget that strawberries are high in antioxidant!

As I stated above, agar agar is made from seaweed, which is great for vegans and vegetarians.  I’m sure lots of Asian prefer agar agar to collagen.

Notes
  1. Jelly/agar-agar will set in room temperature, so make sure to stir every few minute if you are waiting for the jelly/agar-agar in the pan to set. Why do I freeze? It is to let the jelly set faster.
