Coffee Jelly วุ้นกาแฟ - Episode 109

Coffee Jelly วุ้นกาแฟ - Episode 109

Coffee Jelly วุ้นกาแฟ is a sort of like Coffee Jello. But Coffee Jelly uses agar-agar powder instead of gelatin as a thickening agent. Unlike gelatin, agar-agar powder is plant based, and the preferred thickening agent for vegetarians. Also, agar-agar powder sets within minutes as opposed to hours when cooled. Which means you can do cool things with agar-agar powder, like make layers fairly quickly. Agar-agar powder might not be well known, or very popular in the US, but you can find it fairly easy at your local Asian grocery store, or even online at Amazon. If you love coffee, then try this.

Iced Coffee กาแฟเย็น - Episode 86

Iced Coffee กาแฟเย็น - Episode 86

As the seasons change and summer starts to set in, it is the perfect time to switch from coffee to iced coffee. My iced coffee recipe is inspired by Thai Iced Coffee. The main difference is who the iced coffee is sweetened. This recipe shows two difference ways to sweeten your iced coffee, one for those that like cream in their coffee, and one for those that like black coffee. 

Use your favorite coffee brand, I use a local brand that I buy at the local farmer's market. Their coffee beans are great and makes the perfect flavor of coffee. For the creamed sweetener I use condensed milk, half-and-half, and evaporated milk. For the blacked sweetener I use coconut sugar and honey. Very simple, very quick, and very easy to make at home.

How to Open a Coconut & Make a Smoothie เฉาะมะพร้าวอ่อน(น้้ามะพร้าวปั่น) - Episode 51

A lot of people love the refreshing taste of fresh coconut juice, but avoid buying coconuts because of the difficulty in opening them. In this video I show you how to quickly and easily open a coconut with only a cleaver. When buying a coconut for the juice inside, it is important to buy a "young coconut". You can identify a young coconut from an old coconut by the outer skin color. Young coconuts have a white outer skin that is soft, and mature coconuts have a dark outer skin that is hard. But those are not the only differences, a young coconut will usually be filled to the top with juice, and the juice will typically be much sweeter than a mature coconut. Additionally, the coconut meat inside of a young coconut taste great and can be easily taken out and eaten right away.
