Not all “jello molds” have to be made from gelatin and not all have to be super, sugary, sweet (although those are good too!). This uncommonly refreshing treat is made with watermelon, basil, and gelled with agar-agar, a vegan gelatin alternative. I don’t work with agar very often but I did devote an entire chapter it in my book, Hello Jell-O!. This recipe appears in my book but I have included it hear so you can try it before summer slips away. Even if you yourself are not vegan you can still enjoy this healthy and delicious treat… or you can make it for your vegan friend. We all have at least one.

I have had several inquires into vegan jello alternatives so I have been experimenting with Agar Agar, a flavorless, orderless, seaweed derived ’gelatin’. My mother gave me this tiny mold for Christmas and I thought it would be perfect for this recipe made with vanilla soy yogurt and clementine zest. A creamy, delicate flavor that even an unrefined, carnivorous palate (my father’s) could appreciate as he devoured the whole thing. This recipe will be included in my new book, but I have included it here as well so you can try it now. Have a Happy New Year everyone!
