How to Eat Water…for dessert

25 Mar

I used agar agar to make almond water jelly cubes!  Like the coconut kanten, this concotion, too, might be an acquired taste.  But these cubes makes for a refreshing, low-calorie dessert option… made from seaweed!  The translucent cubes look quite beautiful when topped with fruit — like wild blueberries cooked down in lemon juice.


  • 4 cups filtered/spring water
  • 4 tbsp agar agar flakes
  • 5 packets of organic Stevia
  • 2 tsp almond extract

Bring the water boil.  Add the agar agar flakes and Stevia, and simmer until the flakes are completely dissolved, whisking frequently.  Add the almond extract, stir.  Once the agar agar flakes have dissolved completely, take off from the heat and pour into a glass container (I use a 9 in. x 7 in.  glass tupperware).  Cool and then refrigerate.  When the liquid has solidified into jelly, cut strips into cubes and top with fruit!

    I really want to try your recipes, but can you please specify the Stevia? I’m not sure how to use it and since I have no idea how much stevia is in a ‘packet’ I’m stumped.
