Blackberry Lemonade Jelly – An elegant dessert that is refreshing, beautiful and so easy to make. The prefect dessert for any party.
One of my favourite things I have made has been that amazing 3 Layered Watermelon Jelly. I made that on a day I was totally and utterly inspired by watermelon. I just walked into the kitchen carrying an entire watermelon and just came up with that recipe. It was so incredibly light and refreshing, a perfect summers day dessert. That is why I decided to give that concept another go, and if I may say so myself, I have out done myself. This Blackberry Lemonade Jelly is so delicious. A layer of sweet/sour lemonade (actual lemonade) balanced out with a layer of blackberries…it is divine.
My favourite thing about both the Watermelon Jelly as well as this Blackberry Lemonade Jelly is how beautiful and elegant it looks. It looks like something from a 5 Star restaurant without any of the actual effort. It pretty much impresses anyone and everyone.
The downside to the Blackberry Lemonade Jelly is that you have to wait for one layer to set before you can add the next. But it honestly is incredibly easy to make and totally worth the wait because it is so darn delicious. It is not heavy at all, which is often the problem with desserts. You can be so full from dinner or lunch that you literally can’t fit in any dessert. So this Blackberry Lemonade Jelly is the perfect solution to that, because it isn’t rich or filling, just delicate and delicious and so beautifully refreshing.
To set the Jelly, I used Gelatin Powder. You can easily swop that out for Gelatin Leaves and if you want to make a vegan version you can use Agar Agar to set the jelly. I am a little unsure about the amount you should use, but normally it works when I use the same amount of Agar Agar Powder as I would Gelatin Powder. Sometimes a tiny bit less works better.
