Ingredients You’ll Need for This Coffee Jelly Cream Recipe

Here are the [Recipe Name]’s ingredients you’ll need to make this fruity coffee jelly cream recipe:

  • Coffee Jelly: For the coffee jelly dessert, you’ll need 2 cups brewed strong black coffee, 1/4 cup granulated sugar, and 1 tablespoon unflavored gelatin powder.

  • Whipped Cream: You will need heavy whipping cream and sugar to make whipped cream. You can also add vanilla extract to give a luscious flavor.

The Recipe How-To

Step 1: Making Coffee Jelly

To make the coffee jelly for this recipe, I start by dissolving the unflavored gelatin powder in a small bowl of water. In another pot, I mix 2 cups of brewed strong black coffee and 1/4 cup of sugar. Then, I heat the mixture until it boils. Once boiling, I add the dissolved gelatin to the mixture and continually stir for 5 minutes.

Afterward, I pour the jelly into a square or rectangular container and let it cool in the refrigerator for at least an hour until firm. Once cooled, I cut the jelly into small cubes of about 1 inch by 1 inch.

Step 2: Making Whipped Cream

In a mixing bowl, I whip 1 cup of heavy cream using a hand mixer until it starts to thicken. Then, I add 1 tablespoon of sugar and a teaspoon of vanilla extract for flavoring. Finally, I continue whipping until stiff peaks form.

Step 3: Making Graham Cracker Crumble

In a food processor, I pulse about 12 pieces graham crackers until they turn into small crumbs. Afterward, I melt 1/4 cup of butter over medium heat and then mix it with the cracker crumbs.

Step 4: Preparing the Coffee Jelly Cream

In a large bowl or individual dishes, I layer the coffee jelly cubes, whipped cream, and graham cracker crumble alternatively. Then, I pour some condensed milk over the top to sweeten before serving.

This easy Japanese dessert offers a perfect balance of sweet and bitter from the coffee jelly and whipped cream while providing texture from the graham crackers bits.

Substitutions and Variations

Do you want to add a little twist to your coffee jelly dessert? Here are some substitutions and variations you can try:

– Agar agar instead of gelatin: If you are vegan or prefer not to use animal-based products, you can substitute the gelatin with agar agar. It is a plant-based thickener that works similarly to gelatin. However, keep in mind that the texture will be slightly different, and you may need to adjust the amount based on the brand you are using.

– Use flavored gelatin: Experiment with different flavors of gelatin instead of unflavored. A few options include strawberry, raspberry, peach, mango, and orange. Adding a fruity twist to your coffee jelly can make it even more refreshing.

– Use coconut milk or condensed milk: For a creamier texture, replace heavy cream with coconut milk or condensed milk. Coconut milk will provide a tropical flavor that complements the coffee taste while condensed milk provides a sweet twist.

– Use iced coffee: Instead of brewed hot coffee, try using iced coffee as your base. It will give an additional refreshing touch that will be perfect for the summertime.

– Add toppings: Top your dessert with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream for an extra rich and luscious bite! You can also add chocolate syrup drizzle or chocolate flakes on top.

There you have it! Enjoy playing around with these substitutes and variations in your easy Japanese coffee jelly dessert recipe.

Serving and Pairing

Alright, buckle up because serving and pairing is where the real fun begins. This fruity coffee jelly cream recipe is an explosion of flavors, and I’m here to help you elevate it even further.

First things first, this dessert is best served cold. So make sure you let it chill in the fridge for a couple of hours before serving. Once it’s nice and cold, you can cut it up into cubes or serve it as a whole slice.

Now let’s talk about the pairing because that’s where you can really take this recipe to the next level. A classic combo is pairing this dessert with a warm cup of coffee. That may seem like overkill since the recipe already has coffee jelly, but trust me on this one. The sweet flavors of the dessert perfectly complement the bitterness of a good cup of joe.

But why stop at coffee? You could also pair this dessert with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream. Go wild and experiment with different toppings and sauces until you find your perfect match.

Lastly, let’s talk presentation because let’s face it, we eat with our eyes first. The recipe already looks fantastic, but if you want to take your serving game up a notch, add some sliced fruit or berries on top. Not only does it look great, but it also adds a touch of freshness that balances out the sweetness.

Pairing and serving are all about experimentation and finding what works best for you. So don’t be afraid to play around with different combinations until you find the perfect way to enjoy this delicious fruity coffee jelly cream dessert.

We know life can get hectic sometimes, so we’ve got your back with this Fruity Coffee Jelly Cream recipe! You can make the coffee jelly a day ahead and it will still taste as fresh as ever. Once made, store it in an airtight container in your fridge until you need it.

If you want to enjoy this delicious dessert later in the week, you can freeze the coffee jelly cubes for up to a week. When you’re ready to serve, just defrost them and engage your taste buds in the mouthwatering combination of fruity flavors and coffee!

Another way to store this dessert is to prepare the coffee jelly but store it separately from the whipped cream mixture. Simply fold them in when you are ready to assemble and serve.

When reheating the dish, keep in mind that you don’t heat it for too long or else the texture will be ruined. To reheat this recipe, pop it into a microwave-safe dish and heat for 10-20 seconds intervals with a low power setting until it reaches your desired consistency. Now sit back and enjoy every last bite with a warm cup of Japanese coffee or top it off with ice cream, coconut milk or any favorite toppings of your choice.

Tips for Perfect Results

Now, let’s dive into some tips and tricks to ensure that your Fruity Coffee Jelly Cream comes out perfectly!

First, when making the coffee jelly, it is important to use gelatin powder that is specifically designed for desserts. Using regular unflavored gelatin may result in a different texture or taste.

Second, make sure to let the coffee jelly set completely before adding the whipped cream layer on top. This will prevent any mixing of the layers and ensure a beautiful presentation.

Third, if you want a stronger coffee flavor in your jelly, you can add a teaspoon of instant coffee or espresso powder to the mixture before boiling.

Fourth, for an extra twist of flavor, you can substitute the fruity gelatin with flavors like mocha or caramel to complement the coffee flavor even more.

Finally, for an added touch of indulgence, serve the Fruity Coffee Jelly Cream with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. Trust me when I say it takes this dessert to a whole new level of deliciousness.

Follow these tips and you’ll have a delicious, beautiful dessert that will impress all your friends and family.


Before we wrap up this Fruity Coffee Jelly Cream Recipe, let’s take a moment to answer some frequently asked questions. I want to ensure that you have all the knowledge you need to make this recipe perfectly so that you can enjoy it with your loved ones. So, without further ado, let’s dive into the FAQ section.

What is Japanese coffee jelly made of?

A sweet treat called coffee jelly is created by combining black coffee with gelatin. While it used to be a popular dessert in British and American cuisine, it became widely known in Japan during the 1960s after it was introduced by a local chain coffee shop.

How to make a jelly coffee?

To make some delicious coffee jelly, start by dissolving gelatin in hot water. Mix it well and pour it into a saucepan. Next, add in some coffee and sugar to the mixture, and put it over high heat to bring it to a boil. Once done, pour the coffee mixture into a 9-inch square or 7×11-inch baking dish that is shallow in shape. When it’s all set, cut the coffee jelly into small cubes and serve them to your guests.

What does coffee jelly do to your body?

Combining coffee with gelatin can accelerate your metabolism and assist in reducing excess water weight. Gelatin is also known for its anti-inflammatory properties that can aid in the recovery of muscle injuries.

Should coffee jelly be kept in chiller or freezer?

If you’re looking for something refreshing and sweet, I suggest trying a cold serving of coffee jelly. This delectable treat sets perfectly in the fridge, and the silky cream that comes with it gets its thickness from being chilled as well.
