What is coffee jelly? 

Coffee jelly is exactly what it sounds like. It’s a soft jelly dessert that is made with gelatin, sugar, and instant coffee. 

This sweet jelly is usually enjoyed with milk and milk tea. It can also be a great addition to other desserts such as shaved ice, ice cream, or even enjoyed by itself with whipped cream. You can also add it to your iced coffee to add dimension, texture, and flavor! 

Coffee jelly is super simple, easy, and delicious. It only takes minutes to create!
