Get Your Jelly On! Day 24 - Smurfette (Blue Cherry Vanilla Cream Soda Jelly)

IMG_5980

One of my wackiest ideas for this jelly competition is this particular entry, named after one famous blue tinged gal aka Smurfette. 


Just like the ambiguous cartoon character she is named after (is she good or bad?), this particular sweetie is a little hard to decipher.

She may look a little weird with her blue colour (attributed by these interesting berry tinged cherries by Roland) but she actually tastes rather good. 


I had paired her off with Thomas Kemper's vanilla cream soda which gives it a light pleasant vanilla taste that blends well with the sweet and slightly crunchy cherries.

My particular jelly was rather wobbly since I was actually short of time and only chilled it for two hours. Maybe next time it should be a bit longer to give it a crunchier texture. Nevertheless, it has a rather soft texture that can be quite pleasant to slurp down.


Blue Cherry and Vanilla Cream Soda Jelly (Makes two)


1 bottle of Roland blue cherries, drained and stalks removed except for two cherries
1 bottle of Thomas Kemper vanilla cream soda
2 tablespoons gelatine powder


Soften gelatine powder in water. Leave to bloom. Add a little hot water to melt. Once melted, add vanilla cream soda and whisk together. Place cherry with the stalk at bottom of the mould. Pour a little jelly mixture in the bottom. Divide the cherries among the two moulds. Top with remaining jelly mixture. Leave to chill for 2 hours or more. Unmould and serve immediately.

Nate - definitely very funky with the blue.

Sara - yes, blue is an eye popping colour that gets the attention straightaway.

chopinandsaucepan - I can imagine Katy Perry singing to this...in Friday Night when all hell breaks loose.

Michelle - I suspect it's not very healthy but I'll close my eyes to that. They taste good though, nice and crunchy.

Life for Beginners - LOL, I am sure Gargamel won't be able to resist her sweet charms.

Thanks ninazsyafinaz. I love blue too hence I reached for this colour when I saw the colourful cherries.

Au&Target - good idea! I can imagine how it will be, an alcoholic packed jelly shot.
