Fruit Konnyaku Jelly

Fruit konnyaku jelly

Serve your favorite fruits with konnyaku jelly in shot glasses, garnish with mint leaves!

Konnyaku jelly has always been made using plastic moulds in the shape of florets, sea shells or stars. When served, they have to be remove from the moulds. They are very pretty, but they are not easy to serve as dessert unless they are placed into individual dessert plates. I started making konnyaku jelly in shot glasses for our parties and they are really a hit!


Fruit Konnyaku Jelly

Makes 30 cups


1 pack (10 g) Konnyaku Jelly
100 g sugar
1000 g water
2 tbsp lime juice
1 mango
1 dragon fruit
150 g strawberries
1/2 melon


Combine jelly powder and sugar in a pan

Add cold water and stir to melt the sugar and jelly powder. Add lime juice

Cook the mixture over high heat till boiling point

Cut all fruit into cubes

Place some fruit cubes into the shot glasses. Pour the jelly mixture to fill up the glasses

Refrigerate till firm. Serve cold and garnish with mint leaves

For a more grownup version, I would add 30 grams of vodka (or more) into the mixture. That would get the party going!

    I’ve seen quite a few fruit jelly recipes lately and every times I see one I feel like trying it myself. They look so gorgeous that I don’t think I would ever eat them even if I end up making them anywhere closer to yours :-)

      It is very easy and quick to make, no need to unmould. I am sure you won’t have any problem to eat them! :)

    wow looks so pretty! i have never seen konnyaku come in 10 g packs, but would it be okay to substitute it with agar agar powder?

      I am so sorry for the mistake! I just re-checked, it was in a 15gr pack. Thanks for bringing into my attention! This is what I used :

      Yeah definitely, agar powder is a great substitute!

    so gorgeous! I’m glad you didn’t add any artificial colouring – the clear jelly is so pretty surrounded by colourful fruits.

      Yes we don’t need those! Let them color our batik instead of our food! :)

    If i were to add the vodka as suggested would i hve to lessen the water in the list of ingredients? Would it be possible to get the above converted to ml or cups? Also do u think these can be served cut up into squares? Thks!!
