Chocolate Vannila Agar Agar

facebook twitter pinterest googleplus email

Ice-creams are all time favorite for any kid. However we restrict many times with a fear that they would catch cough/colds particularly before we travel or exams. When it comes to parties we are much more hesitant to prepare as all kids cannot take cold items. Dishes with agar agar is a good alternative in such cases. It is a seaweed extract and a vegan substitute for gelatin. The good part is the dish gets set in room temperature and becomes guilt free for us to prepare.

We get this in two forms – powder & strips. This post is using the powder. The measurement for this to set properly – 320ml water for 10gms of powder or 320ml water for 8gms of strips. A little variation in the measurement is still fine. In India we get it in the name “China Grass”.
Here goes the recipe.

Notes


  • Adding sugar or honey is a must as we are diluting with water.
  • Cooking with the agar agar strips will take slightly more time. Make sure it is dissolved completely.
  • Adjust the amount of sugar if you need it more sweeter.
  • Make any of your regular chocolate drink.
