  • 1 box unflavored gelatin (I used Alsa)
  • 3 tablespoons very strong brewed coffee or more (or 4 heaping teaspoons or more of good instant coffee)
  • 3 teaspoons sugar or to taste, if using unsweetened gelatin
  • 3 cups ice cold milk the pour and drink kind


  • Prepare the gelatin according to package directions but reduce the amount of water by about 1/5 for a firmer jelly. Stir in the coffee (and sugar, if using unsweetened gelatin).
  • Pour into a shallow bowl or tray and allow to set. When firm, cut into one-inch cubes. Chill in a covered container.
  • Divide the jelly among three tall glasses. Fill glasses with very cold milk. Serve the coffee jelly beverage at once.
