Agar-agar is a plant-based gelatin substitute made from seaweed. It is commonly used as a stabilizer and a thickener. The earliest type of agar-agar sold in the market is in the form of bars. These days you will see agar-agar in the forms of powder, flakes, sheets, and strips. Aside from being more affordable than gelatin, agar-agar sets faster and gives a firmer texture that’s why more people now prefer using it.

Ingredients:

• 1 cup of coconut milk
• 2 cups of soy milk
