This produces a wonderfully light dessert, similar to an intensely flavored, opaque coconut jelly! Try topping with fresh fruit for an extra-special treat.

Pretty good recipe. Not sure what the other reviewer was expecting but this is meant to taste light and not artificial. A lot of people are used to strong coconut-flavored items that contain a lot of coconut oil and artificial flavors. Since this recipe is made with Agar the texture will be different than JELLO. Recipe worked well for me and my friends. Read More

I was really hoping for a coconut flavoured jelly with this but it did not even taste like coconut and I did not care for the taste and texture. Read More
