A few months ago I had lunch with a friend, Maggie who shared her konjac noodles recipes with us. She produces a line of body and face sponges made of konjac, and she enjoys exploring different ways of using this beauty food… Well, she’s done it again! Check out these dessert jellies – you should of seen the smile on my face when she presented them to me!
Not only was it incredibly fun to eat flowers, the these jellies were also delicious! Sweet, but light and with a fresh pop of blueberries. Trust me – gather the ingredients and give this recipe a go! Can you imagine how pretty they would look served at dinner party, birthday or even for Easter brunch! Your friends will go crazy for them! Plus, Maggie tells me they were super easy to make 🙂
