Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Have you tried my mandarin orange agar-agar jelly recipe? It’s made with only 3 ingredients — coconut water, agar-agar powder, and mandarin orange. It looks beautiful and fancy, but it’s really easy to make. Let’s get started!

Mandarin Orange Agar-Agar Jelly

Serving: 3
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 5 minutes
Rest time: 45 minutes

3 cups (710 ml) coconut water
1 tablespoon agar-agar powder
3 medium mandarin oranges, peeled


  1. Place the mandarin oranges in the molds.
  2. In a small pot, pour in the coconut water. Then add the agar-agar powder. Whisk until everything is dissolved.
  3. Place the pot over high heat, stirring constantly, and bring it to a boil. Turn to medium heat, continue to stir constantly, and simmer for 2 minutes.
  4. Pour the liquid into each mold. Set under room temperature for about 45 minutes.
  5. To unmold, lightly squeeze, and flip it on a flat surface. Do the same with the rest.
  6. Serve directly or chill in the fridge before serving.


  1. I got the heatproof silicone molds from Amazon. Each one holds about 1 ½ cups or 355 millimeters. You could also replace them with bowls or cups.
  2. Agar-agar is made from seaweed, and processed into powders. It’s similar to gelatin, but the texture is firmer. It’s available in most Asian grocery stores and on Amazon
  3. The ratio is 1 teaspoon of agar-agar powder to 1 US measurement cup, which is about 236.6 millimeters.
