Almond jelly with fruit cocktail, fruits and fruit based desserts are popular in china and almond based puddings and jellies are usually savored with fresh fruit. This recipe is classic vietnamese. Little cups of almond flavored jellies are served topped with fresh fruit-which ever is in season. We’ve paired it with fresh lychees, orange, pineapples and strawberries. You can get creative and use other juicy fruits like kiwi, berries etc. And use interesting jelly moulds to yield jelly of different shapes. Refreshing and delicious!

Just the plain jelly with the almond essence and vanilla essence is soft and delicious. Add any fresh fruits in season to make a fab dessert.
