Each summer I try to showcase at least one vegan “jello”. This year’s Coconut Raspberry Agar, made with agar-agar a gelatin alternative, is the perfect summertime treat. Not only does it taste like a tropical vacation, but, since agar melts at much a higher temperature then traditional gelatin, it will survive the journey in the summer heat to your friend’s cookout where you will be the hero for bringing something everyone can enjoy, even your vegan friend. This, and many fun and tasty recipes, appear in my book Hello Jell-O! but I have included it hear so you can give it a try.

Year of the Snake

A couple of years ago for the Chinese New Year I made a Year of the Rabbit jello. According the the Chinese Zodiac, this year begins the Year of the Snake. I don’t have a snake mold so I used this goldfish mold to symbolize surplus in the new year. I made a traditional Chinese dessert recipe of almond gelatin and mandarin oranges with a red cherry eyeball. The red symbolizes good luck. The Year of the Snake begins on February 10th and if you are like me and you were born in 1965, 1977, 1989, or 2001 this is your year!

A departure from the usual fruited jello molds I create, this earthy, hearty, jello mold is made with almonds, pecans, and rolled oats all held together with sweet honey and brown sugar. The recipe for this can be found in my new book, Hello Jell-O!.

I wanted to make something very warm and fall-like for Thanksgiving this year. I found a maple leaf shaped baking pan and thought that maple gelatin would be the perfect fit. To balance the sweetness of the gelatinous pure maple topping, I used creamy almond flavored Dofu Delight gelatin as a base with a little brown sugar and vanilla added.  Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

This recipe came from the classic Joys of Jell-O recipe book and boasts a new way to make the old fashioned confection. These strawberry, cherry, orange, and banana shaped candies are molded from ground coconut and almonds and are flavored with the corresponding fruit flavored gelatin. Whole cloves and mint leaves put the finishing touches on these tiny fruits. While the taste of the finished product bears little resemblance to actual Marzipan, they are sweet and yummy, especially if you like coconut, and were very fun to make.

Still inspired by the Dim Sum dessert I had in Chinatown, I purchased a variety of flavors of DoFu Delight, “a favorite Asian treat”, from a Chinatown market. For this jello I used the almond favored agar dessert and cranberry jello.
