Health benefits of pomegranate are extraordinary, but mangos, berries and chia seeds are pretty awesome, too. Feel free to substitute raspberries with any other berries you’d like. Strawberries will do exceptionally well. Jellies are made with agar-agar, a vegetarian gelatin substitute made from algae. That sounds a little repulsive, but trust me you won’t taste any algae or sea monsters. If you don’t want to use it or don’t have it, you can simply use regular gelatin. The top layer is made of chia seeds and coconut milk, as the sweet taste makes a good duo with the sour raspberry layer.

If you want to make jellies to look like those in the picture, you will have to incline the cups on 45 degrees angle.

To do that, you can use some old wrinkled printing paper or newspaper and lay the cups on an angle. Then pour the first layer of jelly and let it cool completely.

  3. I’m going to use this recipe for my final exam in my culinary class and I do plan to buy serving cups similar to those pictured. Under those circumstances, how many servings does this make with the specified amounts?

    • Hi Rachel. The recipe is for 4 servings. Those cups are actually from Ikea and they cost just a few bucks. Each of these serving cups holds about 3/4 cups of liquid.
      Good luck on your exam :)! If you need anything else just ask 🙂

    • Hi. Thanks for the question. About 2 tsp (4 grams) of agar powder to every cup of liquid. So for this recipe is about 3 tsp. Usually it is specified on the package. I recommend that you follow instruction on the package because recommended quantity can be slightly different on agar flakes and agar powder.
