For a creamy and smooth dessert, consider making konjac jelly pudding as a healthier alternative to traditional pudding. This delightful treat uses konjac jelly to create a satisfying and guilt-free dessert option. To make this pudding, you will need konjac jelly, milk or a milk alternative, sweetener of choice, vanilla extract, and optional toppings such as fruit, nuts, or chocolate chips.
Start by blending the konjac jelly with the milk, sweetener, and vanilla extract in a blender until smooth. Pour the mixture into individual serving cups or a large bowl, and then refrigerate for a few hours or until the pudding has set. When you're ready to serve, add your favorite toppings to customize the dessert to your liking.
Konjac Jelly Smoothie Bowl
Begin by blending the frozen fruits, milk, and sweetener in a blender until smooth and creamy. Pour the smoothie mixture into a bowl and add small cubes of konjac jelly. Then, get creative by arranging your favorite toppings on the smoothie bowl to add texture, flavor, and visual appeal.
This option is also a breakfast friendly option and it also is good for post-workout energy as well. If you are exercising or lifting weights, consider adding protein powder to the smoothie to up the protein content.
