Almond Jelly using fresh or low-fat soy milk is more nutritious. If unsweetened soy milk is used for this recipe, just increase the amount of sugar to 250g or to taste. Instead of using canned food longan, you may opt for can cocktails or fresh fruits instead. If you prefer, you may even add a piece of logan in the jelly itself and serve chilled.
