Ingredients

  • 1/2 pack (48 grams) clear unflavored jelly
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3 cups water
  • 6 avocados
  • lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup condensed milk
  • 1 cup all-purpose cream
  • 1 cup cooked mini sago

Instructions

  • In a large pot, combine jelly mix, sugar, and 3 cups water. Over medium heat, cook while stirring into a near boil.
  • Once it starts to boil, remove from heat and pour the jelly liquid into a baking dish. Allow to cool at room temperature and refrigerate for about 1 hour to completely set. Cut into 1-inch cubes.
  • Cut the avocados in half and remove the pit. Using a large spoon, scoop the flesh and cut the flesh of five avocados into cubes. Drizzle with lemon juice.
  • In a food processor or blender, combine the remaining one avocado and condensed milk. Process into a puree consistency.
  • In a large bowl, combine all-purpose cream and avocado puree. Stir until blended.
  • Add avocado cubes, gelatin, and sago. Gently stir to distribute.
  • Refrigerate for about 1 to 2 hours to chill. Serve cold.

Notes

  • As each brand may require a different amount of liquid, prepare the jelly according to the package’s directions. I used 1/2 of the package or about 48 grams which yield 4 cups gulaman cubes. Check if it's already presweetened as you might have to decrease the sugar or omit it altogether.
  • The wider the pan, the thinner the jelly. I find an 8 x 8 pan results in the right thickness.
  • Choose avocadoes that are ripe but firm and free of bruises. Drizzle with citrus juice to keep from browning.
  • I use mini sago pearls for extra cute factor but regular size will work too.
  • For best flavor, refrigerate to chill for a few hours before serving. The sweetness will mellow out as the dessert cools.
