All you need are three simple ingredients: butterfly pea flowers, a sweetener, & a gelling agent, like agar or gelatine powder. That's it!

The recipe is based on the basic jelly (or jello) dessert: sweetened and flavoured water jellified with gelatine.

Erythritol is a natural sweetener that tastes like sugar but has no calories — great for sugar-free desserts. But, if you prefer, you can swap erythritol with sugar in 1:1 ratio.

Agar powder is a vegan alternative lớn gelatine that gets activated when you cook it và sets in the fridge when it cools down. If you want lớn use agar flakes or vegan gelatine, check our tips in the recipe below.

Recipe Instructions

Tip in the agar-agar powder a bit at a time lớn avoid lumps, & stir well with a spoon until it's completely dissolved.

Make sure you weigh the agar powder accurately, as even a small amount can affect the final result.

You can swap agar powder with the same amount of gelatine powder (vegan if needed). If you want to lớn use agar flakes instead, you need lớn double the amount — but always check the package instructions.

Next, stir in the sugar-free sweetener erythritol (or regular sugar if you don't need the jelly to be sugar-free), followed by dried butterfly pea flowers.

You can substitute the flowers with blue pea powder (also called "blue matcha"), using half a teaspoon for every 2 tablespoons of flowers.
