1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp kirsch (I used rum)

Instructions:

1. Melt gelatin in the microwave in 20 seconds repetitions until dissolved. Keep warm.
2. Place cream cheese, natural yogurt, icing sugar, vanilla extract, lemon juice and rum if using, in a food processor (I used my stand mixer) and blend until smooth. Pour in melted gelatin and continue to whisk until well combined.
3. Whip up whipping cream to soft peaks then add into cheese mixture and mix well using low speed of the mixer.ย Pour half of the cheese mixture into prepared cake pan; add in kiwi slices, followed by the remaining cheese mixture. Arrange more kiwi slices on the top. Keep chill while you prepare the jelly.
4. Prepare Konnyaku Jelly according to packaging instructions. Once ready, remove cake from fridge and gently pour a thin layer over the top of the cake. Refrigerate for a few hours or overnight until set before serving.
