Ribena Konnyaku Jelly

This is another no-brainer sweet desserts by adding Ribena to make jelly :P

Ribena Konnyaku Jelly
I packet Konnyaku Jelly Powder  (10g)
150 grams Caster Sugar *
850ml Water
100ml Ribena blackcurrant juice cordial *
1 packet of Natadecoco

  1. In a small bowl, mix konnayku powder and caster sugar together. 
  2. In a medium pot, bring water to boil.  Pour the konnyaku mixture into water gradually and stir till sugar dissolved.
  3. Turn off flame and keep stirring for about 5 mins, till the bubbles dissipates and the mixture becomes clear.
  4. When the mixture is slightly cooled, add Ribena and stir well.
  5. Put pieces of natadecoco into prepared moulds, then pour the Konnyaku solution into the moulds.
  6. Leave to cool and chill in fridge before serving.
You may adjust the sugar/Ribena accordingly.

Hey blessed homemaker,

Thanks for sharing this recipe. Both ribena and konnyaku jelly are my kids' fav.

One thing i always fail is that my fruits always float up to the surface, creating a fruity bulge :O unlike yours, the nata de coco sit so nicely inside the jelly.
Can you share your secret with me?;) thanks a billion

May I help to answer Cupcake's question?

Ur konnyaku mixture could be too hot. Once I made manggo pudding (uses konnyaku too), and the first few that I filled up, the nata floated up and the last ones that I filled sank. I made 300 servings with a few batches and, that's why I found out.

I love the colour of this jelly.
Guess u're a jelly-holic..always make jellies... kakakaka.

Well, who doesn't love jellies??
I'm Wendy and I'm a jelly-holic

This is such a great idea! I love Ribena and I love all kinds of jello. I have to try this sometime...

This is my daughter's favourite. Sadly we can't find this powder here to make. We have used up all that we brought here :( Hope to go back again soon.

Tks wendy for the answer! I must try again when the jelly mixture is luke warm. Once I panicked when the saw the bottom almost setting. Guess got to keep practicing to perfect it.
I also added some "tadpoles" in the jelly. My JELLY MONSTERS walloped the 4 trays immediately aft I took out from the fridge!

Pearlyn, I hope your kids will enjoy them.

Arkerchi, thanks for lurking around and dropping me a note.

Honey boy/Lia/Mrs Multitasker, I guess we just can't go wrong with Ribena.

Angel, have a smooth delivery!

wendy, thanks for sharing your experience and I encountered the same problem too. You did 300 servings all in small moulds? Kudos to you! I did your mango pudding and gave up after filling just 3 trays! Too time consuming. I'm not a big fan of jellies/agar agar but DH and kids are.

MaryMoh, thanks for dropping by. Maybe you want to try it out with gelatin or even agar agar powder?

cupcake, I like the kiwi seeds too!

Hi BH, I had tried this out on Saturday, but I had put in too much water, so the jelly is too soft, but it tastes yummy, I will try again, thanks for the idea!
