Sweet Potato Jelly Pudding Recipe

A Plant-Based Pudding Recipe
Step by Step Cooking Tutorial with Food Photography

Jelly pudding is a mainstay dessert for many families because it saves money and is easy to make for sure.

For the jelly dish, here I use "AGAR-AGAR POWDER". It's a type of gelatin but a plant-based version made from seaweed. Thus, the “Agar-agar” dish which is chewy like jelly is believed to be good for digestive health.

The advantage of “Agar-agar” is that it is easy to mix with ingredients and tasteless so that the final taste of the dish will follow the other main ingredients. In my area available “Agar-agar” powder with a variety of color choices.


The colorless "“Agar-agar” powder is chosen if you want to highlight the main ingredient of the pudding. But choose other colors such as red, yellow, green, and so on to create a new color that you want, or to strengthen the color of the main ingredient of the pudding.



In this dessert recipe, I tried something new. As usual. To increase the collection of food recipes that are easy to make and save money.

For “Agar-agar” powder, I use red powder. It's like an accident. It's because I ran out of stock of white powder. Then the result made me happy beyond my expectations.

The Sweet Potato Jelly Pudding has a lighter color as if showing the original color of the orange sweet potatoes I used. From that accident, I finally learned something useful in the future.


  • 300 grams of boiled sweet potatoes
  • 500 ml of coconut milk
  • 50 grams of sugar, or depending on your taste.
  • 7-10 grams of “Agar-agar” powder
  • A pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


- Step 1

Boil or steam sweet potatoes that have been peeled and washed.


- Step 2

Blend boiled/steamed sweet potatoes along with coconut milk and salt.


- Step 3

Transfer the sweet potatoes blend to a cooking pan. Add “Agar-agar” powder, sugar, and vanilla.



- Step 4

Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly. Bring it to a boil until bubbles appear on the surface.

If the “Agar-agar” powder mixture is not cooked to a boil properly, it will cause the “Agar-agar” mixture to fail to form into a jelly-like shape.


- Step 5

Remove the “Agar-agar” mixture then put it in the pudding mold. Wait for it to cool, then store it in the refrigerator at least 2 hours before serving.


Sweet Potato Jelly Pudding is ready to be served.


A good time and improve my mood. Plating!

Since my Sweet Potato Jelly Pudding uses molds in the shape of several types of flowers, it's not difficult to present them in the simplest way.

Here I present two different versions of plating. Hope you guys like it.

Decorated with Chocolate Sweetened Condensed Milk and Fruits


I use a white serving plate so using chocolate-sweetened condensed milk can be an interesting advantage.

I formed a long comma-like chocolate-sweetened condensed milk.




I pay attention to the results. It looks very simple, but stunning.

Then I tried to add a little detail with the formed fruit.




I added a red watermelon and a yellow watermelon which I shaped to resemble a star shape and a heart shape.

Added Coconut Bowl

When making Sweet Potato Jelly Pudding, I made coconut milk manually using the traditional grater tool. So I have a coconut shell which I grate the coconut meat to make coconut milk.

This is a coconut bowl that is still fresh and still leaves a little mature coconut meat.

The results seem to be enough to increase the aesthetic value of the food that I made in a simple way.



Because my "AGAR-AGAR" dish this time is a type of pudding that uses coconut milk, the texture is not as chewy as usual jelly. The texture of Sweet Potato Jelly Pudding is smooth and has a sweet taste.

I didn't expect Sweet Potatoes to make such a delicious pudding dessert. I hope you can try this recipe in the future.

lovely accident

Indeed! :)

Nah, you have to try your "agar-agar" into something new.

Definitely, I’ll use it. Getting ideas. 😃🎶

Bookmarked for the future! I never thought of making jelly pudding with sweet potato and coconut milk. Where I'm from we usually just use fruit juice. So this is a great new idea, that I really want to try someday! Thanks <3
(your photos are awesome by the way!)

Agar powder and fruit juice are the perfect matches. I also often combine Agar powder with other fruit.

Thanks. dear :)

Without a doubt, your dessert is spectacular and nutritious, something out of the ordinary. You are amazing! and your recipe is luxurious it deserves to be in a good restaurant, I love your publications.

Many greetings from Venezuela🤗

Thank you for reading my food blog ☀️☀️☀️

This looks really nice and delicious. In our country, sweet potatoes have only been used for a couple of years. Maybe I'll even try to do something. Thanks for the recipe.😎

In Indonesia, sweet potatoes are included as staple food so we use them every day.

Thank you for reading my recipe.

Incredible, looks very beautiful and, apart from that, delicious. 😍

😍 Thank you!

Simply spectacular

Indeed, easy to make it but tasty and we can create something beautiful dessert from it. 😊

Wow... I've only tasted Agar Agar with milk or water here in Suriname and once in a while they put some fruits in the mixture, so you can see the fruits right through the jelly. I never knew that this was an option... Thank you for this gem! 😁

I made like the recipe that you mentioned before.

Agar powder is a gems in the kitchen. And we can create food art with agar-agar. ❤️

That is so true... and it's tasty also. I especially like the ones with milk in it, but your recipe also looks tasty to me.

wow mam your recipes are awesome. I have a lot to learn from you. I like to cook a lot. I want to do something awesome like you. I love your recipes, you have decorated them very beautifully

Thank you for reading my food blog. :)

Wow, I've never seen such beautiful food before. Served so well. Nice to see you served so beautifully.😯😊

I hope you have a new idea to make daily dessert :)

I remember this chef. I remember her cover images didn't look like magazine covers, too! Who is this and what have you done with @anggreklestari?

Excellent article, sweetest chef, congrats on the reward.


Thank you!


Awesome content as usual dear! The photos look so good. This is my kinda dessert, sweet potatoe with coconut milk😋. You could start a cafe!

I have dreamed of opening a restaurant with my menus for a long time. I hope the universe sends me good luck in the future.

You could call it the Bee Hive Cafe ! 😆 I can see you doing it!

Never tried it but looks like my son would love to have some.
And your photography, great as always :)

Thanks! :)

Your plating skills and creativity are incredibly inspiring! Beautiful!

It feels great to be able to play with plating lessons. Makes my brain think more positively :)

Thanks for reading 😘

A very healthy and appetizing recipe to pamper the palate and with a beautiful coloring to brighten the soul.... I loved it!

Thank you so much for reading my post.😘

You can't go wrong making anything with yummy sweet potatoes and coconut milk. A healthy combination! Agar-agar powder sounds very similar to the Knox gelatin I sometimes use in recipes though yours is a healthier version. I would add a dash of both cinnamon and nutmeg in Step 3

Your plating looks incredibly beautiful and delicious! A+💗

Have a wonderful rest of the day, Anggrek! @Anggreklestari

Thank you for reminding me of cinnamon. I often use it for dessert. :)

Absolutely beautiful dessert, I wouldn't want to destroy such a beauty but it sounds sooo good and healthy too! Sweet potato & coconut milk must be a match in heaven, I've never had this kind of combo, brilliant young lady!

I am so grateful to feel that "heaven"!

Those colors are popping. Looks really delicious 😋

Thanks :)

That looks delicious and the color is so vibrant. It looks really appetizing. Sweet potato is such an interesting ingredient for pudding. I wouldn't have expected that you could use it that way

At first I didn't think this would be such a delicious pudding. By trial and error, I finally found out that this is a recipe worthy of a list for desserts for families :)

i hope i can try it someday.

I will be cooking for you. :)
