Coffee Coconut Tofu Jelly

These jelly taste so good! It's soft as the tofu fah dessert. So smooth, it slip down your throat in seconds. I feel like I'm in heaven when eating this. The taste of coffee and coconut so good together. I used the silicone ice tray mold for these delicious cubes.

Coffee Layer:

2 tsp instant coffee
1/4 cup + 1 tbsp sugar
1 tsp konnyaku jelly powder
2 cups water

Boil water and add in the sugar. Then add in the coffee. Stir well and taste. Add more sugar if you want sweeter. Now slowly add in the konnyaku jelly powder. Stir until powder dissolve. Then pour in mold. Let it cool.

Coconut Layer:

1 can coconut milk
1 cup water
1/4 cup + 3 tbsp sugar
1 1/2 tsp konnyaku jelly powder

Boil coconut milk, water, and sugar. Careful not to let it over boil or it will spill. Now slowly add in the konnyaku jelly powder. Stir until dissolve. Now pour over somewhat harden coffee layer. Let cool and place in refrigerator. Serve cold.

Tips: Place mold in ice water bath to cool jelly faster. If you want a firmer more crunchy jelly then add more konnyaku power.

Hi Ling,

Usually one can is 400 ml. Mine jelly is tofu if you want the jelly to be firmer then add more jelly powder. The more powder the more crunchy.

Hi Ch3rri,

Where can I find Jelly Powder? Is this jelly powder is the same as the powder to make vietnamese suong sa? I live in VA and we have Giant Food, Shoppers, Wegmans, Bloom and some Asian groceries. Can you give me the exact brand?

This konnyaku powder is a little different than the regular agar agar. It's more chewy. I like this one more. I can find this powder at most Asian supermarket. I don't think they have more than one brand at the supermarket. The on I bought is Jim Willie. Here is a picture of it from their website.

Some stores sell it for $1.39 and if you're lucky some sell it for $0.99.

Remember to add more powder if you want your jelly to be crunchy.
