Coffee Kanten with Whipped cream.

Updated: Sep 29, 2021

Kanten agar agar flavoured with coffee and topped with whipped cream served in a cocktail glass by kurumicooks tasty vegetarian easy to make healthy Japanese Asian and Fusion cooking for your kitchen.

Do you remember a recipe for berry fruits kanten that I posted a few weeks ago? I'm a fan of kanten because it's easy to use, versatile, low/no calorie and contains no animal products.

So, I thought I'd post another kanten based dessert today - this time using coffee as a flavouring. As kanten has no calories, I thought I'd be a little extravagant and top these desserts with whipped cream but, of course, that's up to you entirely. Coffee kanten and jellies are popular in Japan and you can find them in most chill cabinets in supermarkets and convenience stores there - Japan has a long time love affair with coffee generally, so maybe that's the reason why.

If you want to try these out, you can find the written recipe just below and the Youtube tutorial by clicking Coffee Kanten or scroll to the bottom of the page.

Happy cooking! Kurumi XXXX.
