Red White and Blue Fruit Terrine
This red, white, and blue dessert will brighten up your 4th of July celebration. Made completely of fruit, fruit juice, and agar (vegan gelatin), it will be the healthiest thing on the menu.
Prep Time20 mins
Cook Time10 mins
Total Time30 mins
- 2 cups white grape-peach juice (or juice of choice)
- 1 1/2 teaspoon agar powder
- 2 tablespoon agave nectar (optional–use only if your fruit is not very sweet))
- 10 ounces strawberries
- 2 bananas
- 1 1/2 cups blueberries
Put one cup of the juice in a saucepan, and sprinkle the agar over it and allow it to soften for a few minutes. Then, heat on medium-high, stirring, until the agar is completely dissolved and the juice begins to boil. Stir in the remaining juice and the agave (optional) and remove from heat.
Allow the agar mixture to cool slightly while you prepare the fruit. Be sure to stir the juice every minute or so.
Remove the stems from the strawberries and slice them lengthwise. Place them on the bottom of a loaf pan, prettiest sides down. Slice the bananas and place them on top of the strawberries. Put the blueberries in an even layer on top of the bananas.
Gently pour the juice mixture evenly over the berries. It will start to jell immediately, so work from side to side to make sure it’s distributed evenly. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until completely chilled and jelled. Invert over a platter to serve (you may need to lower the pan into a large bowl of hot water to loosen the edges and run a knife along the inside of the mold.)
