COFFEE JELLY – Low Carb, Keto, Sugar Free
You can find coffee jellies at every supermarket and convenience store here in Japan. Even the Starbucks Japan has Coffee Jelly Frappuccino in the menu that’s only available in Japan. However, they are all loaded with sugar (and additives). I never liked these commercial coffee jellies anyway because I never liked coffee to be honest.
↓↓↓ I took a photo of coffee jellies sold at a convenience store near my workplace.
However, I somehow started drinking coffee when I started working at this new workplace last summer, and I kind of like it now. But the problem is that I can’t drink it black… I always have to add a bit of heavy cream and liquid stevia…
Anyway, now that I drink coffee, I decided to make my own coffee jelly! The commercial coffee jellies you can find in Japan come with sugary cream which contains vegetable oil and additives while you can simply use heavy cream and low carb sweetener…
This coffee jelly of mine is super easy to make! And it’s delicious if you like coffee with heavy cream and low carb sweetener added. I don’t know about those who like drinking coffee black though… Just adjust the quantity of heavy cream and sweetener to your liking.
Coffee Jelly / Low Carb / Keto / Sugar Free
- 4 tbsp Gelatin
- 1 cup Cold Coffee (240 cc)
- 2 cups Hot Coffee (480 cc)
- 3/4 cup Heavy Cream (180 cc)
- 2 tsp Liquid Stevia (Adjust to your liking) (Can use your favourite powdered sweetener)
In a large bowl, soften the gelatin by soaking in the cold coffee for a couple of minutes.
Add the hot coffee and stir to dissolve the gelatin.
Pour the mixture evenly into four glasses. (Or you can pour into a tray and cut into squares when set.)
Let cool to room temperature. Then refrigerate for 3 hours or until set and cold.
Beat the heavy cream until a bit creamy. (* This is optional.)
Make sure that the coffee jelly has set and pour the heavy cream over the jelly (cubes).
Enjoy! (Or you can soak the jelly (crushed) in the heavy cream for a while in the fridge before serving.)
Adjust the quantity of heavy cream and sweetener to you liking.
Personally I like these coffee jelly cubes soaked in heavy cream for one hour or so in the fridge before eating! (I usually pour into a tray and cut into squares when set.)
