What is Almond Jelly
Almond Jelly or also known as almond jello, almond float, and almond or annin tofu, is a soft, jellied dessert popular in Southern China and other neighboring countries such as Japan, Hongkong, and Taiwan. It’s also a local favorite in Hawaii, where it’s called almond float.
The silken pudding is commonly served in dim sum and yum cha restaurants as a complimentary dessert.
It’s traditionally made by boiling and grinding apricot kernels to extract the milk, which is then prepared with a gelling agent such as agar, and sugar as a sweetener. However, more recent versions use commercial almond-flavored gelatin mixes or milk and almond extract for ease and convenience.
