Maca Golden Jello with Apple Juice

Maca golden jello mix

This elegant and creamy maca golden jello is an absolute must have at every New Year’s table. It includes jiggly milk and apple juice layers with some maca powder which is a perfect energy booster for the craziest night of the year. We have decided to use classic sweetened apple juice because of a beautiful golden tone it gives to this fantastic treat but if you have some spare time you can prepare several different combinations with cherry, blueberry or any other juice you have. You can also add a teaspoon of Zen Spirit Matcha Powder to the white layer and get a delicious green jello everybody will love. Furthermore, you can prepare the third layer with champagne instead of apple juice for the best adult New Year’s treat.

Maca Jello cup

This beautiful treat requires some extra work with the glasses. Decorating glasses with some edible flakes will transform this treat into a sparkling beauty everybody will want to try. Simply dip each glass into corn syrup, agave nectar, or coconut syrup and sprinkle with decorative flakes. Chill the glasses in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes before use and you’re good to go. Have fun!
