Over the past week or so, I’ve had dimsum a few times and we always end it with coconut jello dessert. We like it so much that sometimes we order an extra serving to take home with us. I’ve researched where I can purchase the jello mix, but apparently the coconut flavor is quite rare here in the U.S.
Well, today after work I got the idea of possibly checking out the local Chinese supermarket which sort of makes sense since I’ve only tasted such a delight at a Chinese restaurant. I went in thinking that they wouldn’t have it, but surprisingly they did. I also picked up one of my all time favorite Asian snacks, these small sweet cookie balls. I don’t know how else to describe it, but they’re really tasty.
So after I got home and played with CJ for a while, I was able to get myself into the kitchen and quickly mix, boil, and cool the jello. We didn’t have whole milk as we only have 1% fat free milk, so I think my batch wasn’t as sweet and a bit too clear as what the restaurants serve, but it’s still good and better than not having any. Next time I’ll use whole milk and add some sugar.
