This vegan dessert recipe is the best red, white and blue jello dessert you will try. If you are looking for healthy dessert recipes, this is one that you will want to make. This dessert is the perfect addition to picnics and barbecues in a recipe that you can feel good feeding to the kids. This vegan dessert uses white grape/peach 100 percent juice blend and agar to create a healthy Jello recipe. The red, white, and blue layers in this vegan dessert are 100 percent fruit and adaptable to using other fruits that you might light. You might try using a combination of fruits from kiwi, pineapple, fresh figs, papaya, mango, peaches and more. For this easy vegan recipes idea, you will need some white grape or peach juice, some agar powder, some agave nectar for sweetener (this is optional), some strawberries, bananas and some blueberries. To use the agar in this vegan dessert put some of the fruit juice in a saucepan and sprinkle the agar over it and allow it to soften for a few minutes. Then, heat the mixture on medium-high, stirring, until the agar is completely dissolved and the juice begins to boil. You then stir in the remaining juice and the agave sweetener and remove from heat. You'll want to allow the agar mixture to cool slightly while you prepare the fruit. Be sure to stir the juice every minute or so. When the fruit is prepared gently pour the juice mixture evenly over the berries. The juice mixture will start to jell immediately, so you want to work from side to side to make sure it’s distributed evenly. Then cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until completely the vegan dessert is chilled and jelled. You could also choose to use grass fed gelatin as an alternative to agar. While gelatin is not vegan-friendly, you can get good sources that come from grass-fed animals. Some of the benefits of using gelatin in your recipe are that it supports skin, hair and nail growth. Gelatin is also good for the joints and can help speed up joint recovery.

Agar, also known as agar-agar is a jelly-like substance that is obtained from algae. Agar was discovered in the late 1650s or early 1660s by Mino Tarozaemon in Japan, where it is called kanten. Agar-agar is a natural vegetable gelatin counterpart. Agar is white and semi-translucent, and sold in packages as washed and dried strips or in powdered form. Agar can be used to make jellies, puddings, and custard recipes as an alternative to animal based gelatin. Agar is a good alternative for people following vegan or vegetarian diets.
