Do you know Nata De Coco that is sometimes called Coconut Jelly? Nata De Coco is a slightly chewy, translucent, jelly-like food produced by the fermentation of Coconut Water. I have been fond of Nata De Coco since my childhood. Yoghurt Jelly with Nata De Coco is a popular dessert in Japan. I have never seen it in Australia. It’s quite easy to make, and Canned Nata De Coco is available from many Asian grocery stores.
4 to 6 Servings
2 teaspoons Gelatine Powder *about 8g
2 to 3 tablespoons Water
1 cup Milk
1/4 cup Caster Sugar
1 cup Unsweetened Yoghurt *Greek Yoghurt makes firmer texture jelly
1 tablespoon Lemon Juice
100 to 150g Nata De Coco *after drained
- Sprinkle Gelatine Powder into Water in a small bowl and soak for 5-10 minutes.
- Heat 1/2 cup Milk and Sugar in a saucepan, bring close to the boil, and remove from the heat. Add soaked Gelatine, mix well until Gelatine dissolves, then add remaining 1/2 cup Milk and mix well. *Note: This method cools the mixture quicker.
- Whisk in Yoghurt and Lemon Juice. Pour the mixture into the serving glasses or jelly moulds, and add the drained Nata De Coco. Leave them in the fridge until set. *Note: You can place Nata De Coco into the serving glasses first.
- *Note: You can add some Fruit as well.
