Made with little more than coconut milk, water, sugar, and agar agar, the jello-like dessert sets up firmly, separating into two layers. If you don’t disturb the mixture while it’s setting, the layers will be 50/50 clear/opaque, which is very cute. If, however, you spend 15 minutes furiously whisking the mixture in an an attempt to capture photos of steam.. well… it won’t separate quite as well.

Instructions
  1. First, add the sparkling agar agar, then splash on the coconut milk, the sweet sugar and, finally, the water to a medium saucepan. Whisk to combine. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer about 15 minutes, or until sugar and agar agar dissolves completely.
  2. Immediately pour into an 8×8 dish or other jello molds. Want some bonus points? Pop those bubbles with a toothpick. Leave on the counter and allow to separate into two distinct layers.
  3. It will begin to set almost immediately and will be done after the mixture cools. When firm to the touch, slice in cubes, strips, or triangles. The thinner the slices, the more transparent they’ll be. Refrigerate after cooling.
