Molecular Gastronomy – Banana Jelly Jello – Agar Agar

Molecular Banana Nutella

My last Molecular Gastronomy post I made nutella powder using tapioca maltodextrin as part one of this dessert. I wanted to create a sort of deconstructed banana nutella crepe.

So to start you just need the nutella powder, a medium banana, teaspoon sugar (or more if you want it more sweet), 1/3 cup milk (or more if you like it creamy) and 1g agar agar.

Puree the banana.

Put it on the stove. Add the agar agar, milk, sugar and bring to a simmer.

Make sure to keep whisking since the agar can tend to clump.

Pour it into a mold or bowl or plate or whatever. I wanted to make cylinders so I poured it into a paper cup that I cut after to remove the block. Then I used a small cookie cutter to cut out a cylinder.

Best way to present these are in a spoon, so you just end up putting everything

I had my hubby taste it without knowing what it is. He was a little worried at first, but after it was in his mouth he let out an “mmmmm..” which is always a good thing. He said it tastes like a banana split! Have people try it without telling them what it is and watch their reactions. Its so much fun!

P.S. My NIKON CAMERA GIVEAWAY is still going on here.

    We use agar-agar all the time in Asia for making jellies. It's funny how it's become a cool molecular gastronomy ingredient in the West!

  12. mirauncut says —

    Yeh, I know Asia has had a leg up on it from very very long time ago. Whats even funnier is people that get freaked out by eating it, saying its "chemicals", when its just seaweed extract.hehe. I think its way better than gelatin as well.

  13. mirauncut says —

    yeh, Asia has been doing this forever. its funny how people think "agar" is this weird chemical, when its a seaweed extract.

  14. jeroxie says —
