Learn How to Choose & How to Use Green Tea Powder

Do you know Agar? It’s made with seaweed and works like gelatine but it is plant-based. When I was a kid, I enjoyed “Anmitsu,” which is a popular dessert made with “Kanten.” Kanten, which is the Japanese name of Agar, is translucent like gelatine, but it is farmer than gelatine. Agar firms up quicker than gelatine without refrigeration, so it is easier to make layered “jello.”

This recipe creates beautiful two layers of brown and green. It can keep a few days, and the flavor deepens and tastes sweeter, which is convenient because we can make the dessert ahead of time!

Ingredients

Date layer:

  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tsp. Agar
  • 3/4 cup Date Syrup*
  • 1/4 to 1/2 tsp. Immune Booster or Chai spice or Pumpkin pie spice

*To make date syrup, put dates in a mason jar, loose but up to the top. Add pure water to fill the jar. Secure the lid on, and leave it in the fridge for a few days until the dates are completely soft. When they are soft, process the dates with water until smooth. Keep the date syrup in a clean mason jar up to a few weeks in the fridge.

6. Pour the green tea mixture into four bowls evenly on top of the date layer.

7. Keep the “jello” in the fridge for at least 30 minutes before you serve. When they are completely cool, cover them with plastic if you keep them in the fridge for more than one day. They will keep up to 3 days.

8. When you serve, garnish with toasted coconut flakes.

How to toast coconut flakes: Spread shredded coconut flakes in a single layer on a baking sheet. Toast in a 325F oven for 3-5 minutes. It gets browned really quickly, so keep an eye on it.
