Broken Glass Jello recipe with a creamy base of lychee and Yakut and fruity strawberry bites!
Ahh, seeing a wreath of Broken Glass Jelly was one of the hallmarks of our Christmas and Noche Buena. Each of my aunts had a specialty and my Aunty Athena always made this. More the traditional way with the milk base and a rainbow assortment of jellies.
In this recipe we are going to use Lychee soda mixed with Yakult to make the milky base and just use strawberry fruit jelly for the “broken glass” effect.
This Broken Glass recipe does not need much!
Strawberry Jelly: You are going to use 1 package of strawberry jelly, but reduce the water so that it is nice and firm when you cut them into squares and so that it holds it’s shape.
Sanzo Lychee Sparkling Water: This will give it that lychee flavor.
Yakult: I have to say yakult has a very distinct flavor and when mixed with other fruity drinks it gives it a nice yogurt but sweet citrus taste.
Sugar: The soda that I used here from Sanzo has no sugar added so we are going to add some for a touch of sweet.
Gelatin: This is what will make it super jiggly. I used Knox unflavored gelatin.
First start with making your strawberry cubes. Boil 1 cup of water and take off the heat and add in the strawberry gelatin powder and mix well. Add 2 cups of cold water and mix well again. Line a small baking pan with plastic wrap and pour in the strawberry gelatin mixture. Refrigerate for 4 hours until very firm.
After 4 hours or the next day make the lychee yakult jelly. In a large bowl mix together 2 cans of lychee sparkling water and 3 bottles of yakult. Sprinkle in 4 packets of unflavored gelatin. Mix well and leave the gelatin to absorb the liquid. Take the 3rd can of lychee sparkling water and put in a small sauce pan with 1/2 cup of sugar. Bring up to a boil. Pour the boiled lychee sparkling water into the lychee and yakult mixture. Mix well. Leave to cool.
Take the strawberry jelly out and cut into small squares. Place them inside a jelly mold that is sitting on top of a baking sheet. This makes it easier to move to the refrigerator.
Pour the cooled lychee and yakult mixture over the strawberry jelly. Put the filled mold into the refrigerator overnight.
This is the mold that I used.
Take the Broken Glass Jello out of the refrigerator. Find a bowl that is bigger than your mold and fill it with warm water. Do not use boiling water. Dip the jello mold into the warm water for about 5 to 10 seconds until you see it pulling away from the mold. Jiggle it slightly to make sure it does pull away. Invert a plate on top of the mould. Hold firmly together and flip over right side up. Jiggle the mold up to release the Broken Glass Jello on to your serving plate.
The Broken Glass Jello can be kept in the refrigerator covered with plastic wrap for up to a week.
