Vegan Fruit Jellies
Got a serious sweet tooth, but sick of your chocolates melting at this time of year? Homemade jelly candies are a welcome treat for your loved ones this Valentine’s day!
- ¼ cup strawberries (frozen or fresh)
- ¼ cup water
- 1 tbsp agar agar
- 1-2 tbsp maple syrup
- Optional: a dash of lemon juice
- Put the strawberries and water into your Omniblender. Purée for 60 seconds, until smooth. Strain through a fine sieve, cheese cloth or a clean kitchen towel to keep all seeds out. Then simply mix all the ingredients together in a saucepan. When the agar agar powder has dissolved completely, bring the mixture to a boil. Keep stirring and allow to bubble for 1-2 minutes until thickened.
- Pour into moulds and let sit in the fridge for about 30 minutes until you can pop them out of the molds easily.
Alternative flavours: instead of strawberries, use raspberries or oranges. You could also try them using almond milk and vanilla for a different flavour and texture.
