Coconut Crème Fraîche & Berry Gelatin

Coconut-Creme Fraiche-Berry-GelatinWith Memorial day being around the corner, I wanted to share this quick red, white and blue dessert that not only looks pretty neat on the outside but also contains some healthier ingredients on the inside. Ok – crème fraîche frosting aside. But really, who doesn’t love fresh berry desserts?? Not to mention making this recipe with my little one was tons of fun. We unintentionally turned it into a science experiment as Mia had never seen how jello is made. Love watching her learn new things. This recipe is a must!

 

Coconut Crème Fraîche & Berry Gelatin

Coconut Crème Fraîche & Berry Gelatin

Ingredients

  • Berry Gelatin:
  • 2 pouches Unflavored Gelatine 
  • 1/2 cup cold water
  • 1/2 cup boiling water
  • 1/3 cup fresh squeezed Meyer lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp organic sugar 
  • Fresh berries (raspberries, blueberries, and strawberries)
  • Silicone cupcake molds
  • Coconut Crème fraîche Frosting:
  • 1 (14 ounce) can regular coconut milk, pre-chilled the night before
  • 1/2 tbsp organic butter
  • 1/4 cup confectioners sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract 
  • fresh mint leaves

Instructions

  1. Berry Gelatin: Sprinkle the gelatin over the cold water and, without touching it, let it soften for 5 minutes. Heat a 1/2 cup of water in a small pan until very hot and stir the softened gelatin into it. Stir this mixture over a low heat until the gelatin dissolves. Remove from the heat and stir in Meyer lemon juice. Pour a layer of gelatin into a mold and arrange some of the berries in this layer. Refrigerate for an hour. Repeat for additional layers. Before you try to invert it onto a serving plate, place the mold in hot water. If you're not serving it right away, be sure to keep it chilled.
  2. Coconut Crème Fraîche: Carefully open pre-chilled can of coconut milk and remove firm, white coconut cream layer from top, avoiding coconut water. Only the cream will be used. In a mixer, whisk butter for a couple minutes. Slowly add in confectioners sugar and coconut cream on high for a minute or until well blended. Add vanilla and blend for an additional minute.
  3. When serving, add a dollop of coconut crème fraîche, a strawberry slice and fresh mint leaves.

  • I thought it would be cute to get matching sunglasses & outfits to take a fun pic at this wall. I’ll blame the hot weather for this one. 😅 .
BUT, the truth is aren’t all the pics of our kids the best regardless if they’re looking at the camera, smiling or just being themselves? These are the real deal. Lexi running around not wanting to wear her sunglasses nor stand still. Mia not wanting to wear a dress & wanting to just climb things or take her own selfies with her iPod (aka phone). 🤣 Duh all kid things. Just a daily reminder to myself that I need to #letthembekids 🙈 .

  • Last Wednesday, I was invited to celebrate the launch of the new streamlined  @HonestBeauty products 
hosted by @jessicaalba at the Honest Headquarters. The event was nothing short of spectacular filled with delicious food, drinks and yummiest gluten-free vegan desserts from @yvonnesvegankitchen And, yes, Jessica Alba really is just as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside. 😍 I asked her how she was able to balance family and business and guess what she said? She’s got the best help, her sis-in-law. 😘  She also mentioned that she created every single product for herself. How awesome is that? .
.
I was excited to try on some of the gorgeous  colors and new skin care products but most importantly to learn how gentle they are, how easy they are to put on & that they’re free of harmful additives. Find them all today @honest_beauty @Target @ultabeauty And check out my celebrity snap in my stories. ☺️ #CleanBeautyThatWorks #honestbeauty 📸 @lin_marty 💕

And speaking of family love, it melts my heart to see our oldest reading Fancy Nancy books 📚 to her little sis. So you can just imagine the reaction these two had when they found out they were invited to a Fancy Nancy tea party inside Walt Disney Studios. And even got to see the first episode! 😱Beyond ecstatic and grateful. Merci it was all Magnifique! Can’t wait for you all to see it. Catch the premier tomorrow at 11a on Disney Junior. And stick around to see our stories of the event throughout the day. 💕#DisneyFancyNancy #DisneyJunior

And more so with kids. 😆 Amiright? Lately we’ve been going on day dates. And although extremely grateful for it, I’m now having #momguilt because our oldest is questioning why she can’t come with us and that we don’t play with her like we use to. 😩 The struggle of finding balance is real. How do you find balance? I feel like I’m being pulled different directions and I know I’m not alone on this. #momlifeyo #teammarriage 📸💕 @lilyro_

I try my best to make sure I’m #raisinggoodhumans but also independent & brave ones. Zip lining, archery, rock climbing, mining, cycling and hanging out with Santa🎅🏼& Mrs Claus 🤶🏻. Just some of the things our 6-year-old experienced yesterday. And although she’s scared of heights, she rock climbed on an outdoor 30-foot wall! Cried a little & attempted to go higher every time. She got more than half way up which is huge in her eyes. On the way out she said it was actually fun and wants to go on again to go higher. Yes my love! You are amazing. 🙌🏼 .

Check out all the fun on our stories & highlights. Thank you @skyparksantasvillage for having us! Our entire fam had a blast! 🤗 #ad #skypark #ChristmastInJuly #summerfun
