Japanese Dessert Recipes

Incredibly unique low fat Japanese dessert recipes with coffee and cinnamon.

Although when most Americans think of Japanese food they think mainly of Sushi, Japan cuisine like all other countries covers a wide range of cooking experiences and like the rest of the world the Japanese like their desserts.

If you want to wow your family or friends with your world class cuisine then serving Coffee Jelly, a light and flavorful Japanese dessert just might be a great way to go. This simple dessert is unique, tasteful and just what the doctor ordered if you are looking for a low fat dessert to serve on a hot summers day.

As an interesting note you might like to know that Japanese coffee usually does not come in bean form or ground as ours does. Their canned coffee is already brewed before it is canned and can be drunk right from the can if they choose. It comes either black or with milk and can be served either hot or cold. So this recipe, made in Japan would be even easier to make as they would have no need to brew the coffee first.

Japanese Dessert Recipes:Japanese Coffee Jelly

With just a few simple ingredients you can turn that leftover morning coffee into a refreshing Japanese dessert by following this simple recipe.


1 Tablespoon gelatin powder

2 cups strong black coffee

4 tablespoons water

2 Tablespoons sugar or sugar substitute

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Low fat whipped topping

Splash 1% milk (optional)


In a small cup mix gelatin powder and 4 tablespoons of water in order to soften gelatin. Then in a saucepan combine coffee, sugar, gelatin and water and vanilla. On low heat warm the ingredients stirring continually until the gelatin is completely dissolved. (if using the 1% milk add the milk). Pour into serving dishes and refrigerate until the jelly is set. Serve with low fat whipped topping.

Notes:Make sure the coffee you use when making this Japanese dessert is free of all coffee grounds. You might want to strain the coffee through a second filter to make sure that there are absolutely no grounds.

This may not be a dessert you will want to serve in the late evening as the caffeine in the coffee may keep some people awake. This dessert is best served for luncheon or at an early dinner and makes a great low fat afternoon snack.

Variations of Japanese Dessert Recipes:

Although the original recipe calls for black coffee, adding a bit of 1% milk makes it more appetizing for people who prefer cream in their coffee.
