Coffee Jelly is one of those desserts I used to always order when I went to Japanese restaurants. It’s light and not overly sweet which makes it the perfect after dinner dessert!
Although you can find pre-made coffee jelly in most Japanese markets, most are packed with sugar. So if I wanted some, I would have to venture out and make my own low-carb/keto friendly version!
The base of coffee jelly is very simple. Get some coffee, gelatin and sweeter and mix it all together and let it cool down.
You can use espresso for the coffee but I instead used syphon brewed coffee, which still delivered the strong wonderful coffee aroma that is so distinguished in coffee jelly.
Coffee jelly can be enjoyed as is or even better with half and half, heavy cream, and or whipped cream on the top. My preference is half and half and whipped cream but any of the above would complement the dessert very well!
Either way, this dessert is super simple and easy to make!
