Super simple dessert for strawberry lovers!
  • 300g strawberries, chopped
  • ½ cup (4 ounces) water
  • ¾ cup (150g) granulated sugar
  • 2 cups (16 ounces) water
  • 1 pack (25g) unflavored and white (clear) gulaman powder (I used Mr. Gulaman)
  • 1 cup (250ml pack) all-purpose cream or heavy cream (I used all-purpose cream)
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons sweetened condensed milk
  1. Combine chopped strawberries, ½ cup of water and sugar in a medium saucepan. Boil for 5 minutes stirring constantly. Mash the strawberries by using the back of a spoon or ladle. Remove from heat and pour the strawberry mixture into a bowl. Set aside.
  2. In the same saucepan, add the remaining 2 cups of water then sprinkle the gulaman powder. Stir until gulaman powder is dissolved. Bring to a boil while stirring constantly. Once boiling, turn the heat into a simmer then break down the the clumps of undissolved gulaman by pressing them against the saucepan using a spoon or ladle. Remove the remaining undissolved gulaman using a spoon. Pour the strawberry mixture back into the saucepan and simmer for at least 3 minutes while stirring constantly. Remove saucepan from the heat.
  3. Pour the strawberry jelly mixture into square molds (I used a 4x8x2" baking dish). Let it cool before chilling in the fridge for an hour or overnight.
  4. Once fully set, cut into bite-size cubes. Set aside.
  5. In a medium or large bowl, combine cream and condensed milk. I added 1 tablespoon of condensed milk because we don't like it to be too sweet, but you can add more if you like. Just add 1 tablespoon at a time.
  6. Add the strawberry jelly cubes to the cream mixture. Mix until the jelly cubes are evenly coated with cream. Chill before serving.
Gulaman powder is jelly powder made from seaweed extract.
