Kanten Jelly Drink -Strawberry Kanten Milk (寒天ドロリッチ風-イチゴミルク味)

Let's drink sweet Kanten jelly with a bubble tea straw!
When I lived in Japan several years ago, this jelly-type drink named "Dororich (ドロリッチ)" was very popular among teenagers.
The name means soft texture and rich taste.
Nowadays, everybody enjoy various bubble teas all over the world. Both Kanten jelly drinks and bubble teas share the same idea of drinking and eating sweets together, but the total calories between the two drinks differ significantly! You don't need to feel guilty when you enjoy Kanten jelly drinks no matter what time of day (or night).
Kanten itself has no calories, but its 80% dietary fibre content gives you a sense of fullness, while also controlling blood sugar level.

So, why don't you stock up your fridge with healthy homemade Kanten jelly drinks instead of ordering expensive drinks from bubble tea shops?!
