  • 7 g Agar agar

  • 3 tbsp Casa-casa (basil seeds), alternatively use chia seeds
  • 375 ml Condensed milk
  • 750 ml Milk
  • ¼ tsp Almond essence

  • A day prior… Place agar agar in a medium saucepan with 200ml cold water and let settle for 2 hours until soft.
  • Place the saucepan on medium heating stirring repeatedly until agar agar has completely dissolved.
  • Stir in 2 tbsp raw sugar and bring to boil until sugar has completely dissolved.
  • Transfer to a heat-proof dish, allow to cool, and then refrigerate overnight to set into a mousse.
  • Cooking day… Shred agar agar mousse using a grater and set aside.
  • Place casa-casa seeds in a large bowl and pick out any notable bad seeds. Stir in 8 cups of cold water and give a stir to separate. Let settle until seeds have expanded, approximately 30 minutes.
  • Once seeds have expanded, stir in condensed milk followed by milk and agar agar mousse gratings.
  • Stir in the almond essence and 3 drops of the food colouring then mix well.
