  • 1 packet konnyaku powder 125g
  • cups water 500 ml
  • 2 tablespoon jam apricot, orange, strawberry, etc
  • 1 orange zest only


  • malic/citric acid 1 packet of this should come with your konnyaku powder
  • lavender, shaved coconut, edible flowers, more citrus peel, fruit, etc.


  • Pour konnyaku jelly powder into a medium-sized pot.
  • Slowly add water and stir continuously to prevent clumps from forming.
  • Add orange zest & jam. Bring to a boil.
  • Remove from heat, and add malic acid (optional). Stir well.
  • Place any optional toppings into the molds (or leave them empty if you don't want any toppings).
  • Pour the konnyaku powder mixture into the molds until full.
  • Let the mixture come to room temperature before placing it in the fridge for 3 hours to set. You can also leave it to set overnight.


  • If you’re adding fruit toppings, make sure the fruit isn't too watery! 
  • Konyakku usually sets SUPER fast - but if you want to, you can leave it to set in the fridge overnight.
  • Because it sets so fast, make sure you pour it into the molds quite fast - don’t let it stand for more than a few minutes or it will start to set.  
  • I love serving it cold straight from the fridge. So refreshing!
To store - Keep the jelly in the molds. Cover the molds with cling film and keep them in the fridge for 4-5 days
Nutritional info is an estimate - every brand of konnyaku powder is different. See packet for nutr. info.
