Is there an alternative to the Gelatine?
The gelatin is actually optional in this recipe, but if you would like, you can also make a gel with chia seeds for a thickener!
Hi Susan,Agar Agar is another option, it comes from sea weed, you can google, Many vegetarians use Agar Agar as an alternative to the gelatin.
