Recipe: Coffee Jelly (low carb, gluten free, dairy free)

Coffee jelly is a common dessert in Asia and it's very easy to prepare, low in calories and free from any artificial flavours or additives.

Coffee Jelly

4 cups of coffee
2 packets unflavoured gelatin
3 tbspns sugar or stevia


  • Prepare coffee as usual - brewed or French press coffee works best
  • Pour 1/2 cup of the brewed coffee into a bowl and sprinkle with the gelatin 
  • Wait for the gelatin to bloom into the liquid
  • Pour the remaining coffee and sweetener into a saucepan
  • Add the bloomed gelatin and coffee 
  • Heat and stir until the sweetener and gelatin have dissolved
  • Using a sieve to catch any undissolved gelatin or loose coffee grinds pour into moulds or cups

  • Cool overnight or until set in the refrigerator
  • To remove from a mould set the mould in a bowl of warm water then turn onto a serving plate
  • For a vegan alternative use agar agar in place of gelatin
  • If desired serve with unsweetened cream or sweetened condensed milk
  • Makes 4 1 cup servings (Macros with stevia: 20 calories, 1g carb, 0g fat, 4g protein)
