Matcha Jelly

This Matcha Jelly is not only delicious but it’s also full of different health benefits!

When I learned about all the health benefits of gelatin, I started making all kinds of different desserts that included gelatin, from jello to creams to pie and cakes!

This dessert is no different and I was inspired by my Coffee Jelly recipe, which is one of my favorite Japanese desserts, to add this Matcha Jelly into the mix!

Matcha Jelly served in a glass cup with whipping cream on top.

This Matcha Jelly is similar in that you pour heavy cream (or half n half) over the set gelatin before serving with a dollop of whip cream.

First, a little info on gelatin and its health benefits: Gelatin is a great source of collagen which is known to improve the skin, nail and hair growth.

It also reduces inflammation, improves digestion, and is a great source of protein.

Studies have also shown that consuming gelatin reduces appetite and increases feelings of fullness thus helping with weight loss.

Add that to the energy boost that matcha provides and you got yourself a pretty solid dessert.

And all you need to do to make this recipe is mix some gelatin and Matcha Powder in a pot, throw some Monkfruit Erythritol Blend in there and heat it up.

From there, cool it down in the fridge and there you go, you have yourself some Japanese style matcha jelly!  Still sweet with no carbs or sugar!

**Because real Matcha Powder is made up of ground tea leaves, it does not fully dissolve in water.  So, some settling will occur on the bottom of the jello.

  1. Any substitute for half and half?

    • LowCarbingAsian

      Hello! Actually, the half n half is a mistake! It should be heavy cream and optional as a topping (now updated). Sorry about that!
