This is an alternative to plain jelly and you can put most fruits in with the jelly to make it healthy (apart from pineapple).
There are a lot of things you can add to jelly to make it a very interesting and not so sweet dessert. In this recipe I had some basil seeds left over from my Falooda dessert I made last week, so used them in the jelly. They have an interesting texture and were a nice addition to smooth jelly.
Ingredients 1 packet mango jelly
1 tbsp basil seeds Blueberries or other fruit of choice
Cream (optional) to serve
For this jelly I have used a Tupperware mould which is a great gadget to keep in your pantry. If you are making jelly for visitors and use two packets, it looks quite stunning when taken out of the Tupperware mould.
Wet the mould before putting the jelly in
Boil some water and put the jelly into this, using only about half to one cup of water. Stir thoroughly so it is all dissolved.
Meanwhile put your basil seeds into water as per this recipe.
When the jelly is a bit cooler, add the basil seed mixture to it, and stir.
Next add the blueberries and mango, or whatever fruit you are using (NOT pineapple), add some more water, and stir.
Stir and put in the fridge to set.
Carefully run a spoon along the edge, and the jelly will come out of the mould leaving an impressive sweet!
Serve in individual dishes with cream, if desired, a much healthier dessert than many others.
