Course Snack

Ingredients
  

  • ¼ cup strawberries frozen or fresh
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 tbsp agar agar
  • 1-2 tbsp maple syrup
  • Optional: a dash of lemon juice

Instructions
 

  • 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.

Notes

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.
