You can use this recipe with fruit of your choice and ice-cream of your choice. You can garnish with ice-cream scoop or whipped cream. Also you can create as many layers as you can with more than one fruit. Use of agar agar is little tricky so read the instructions on the package before using. It is just like gelatin but vegetarian version. If agar agar thickens while using, u can easily heat it to bring back to liquid form.
