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.

  • It’s no surprise I’m a huge Las Vegas fan—and with good reason. Where else can you go watch a concert, gamble, rent a pool party cabana, eat at a five star restaurant at midnight, dance the night away plus get room service at any given time? .
These are just a few reasons why I continue to come back. And since I’m a December baby and love Vegas, pools and summer weather, I thought it would be fitting to celebrate a 1/2 birthday in Sin City right before I hit the big 4-0 (gulp!). .

  • 💦Are you team pool or team beach? 🏖 ¿ Eres equipo alberca (piscina) o equipo playa? .
.
I definitely love both but not a fan of bringing the beach sand home. 😆 We loved staying at @omnilacosta in Carlsbad, CA as they have a sandy beach family pool. It’s truly the best of both worlds. 🙌😉 #ad #omnilacosta #sandiego #familytravel
  • #ad  Where do your kids do their school and art work? For us, it's definitely the kitchen. So it made sense to create a workstation that stores our kiddos art, crafts and school materials in our kitchen island. The best part? It's easy for them to pull things out of the cabinet and place them on top of the counter as well as put everything back away. Plus, I'm also loving how @Clorox Disinfecting Wipes help me to clean, disinfect and refresh this workspace.

Mia our 7 yr old has been at summer camp at a university campus. And truth be told this is not how Lexi and I have been spending our time. I was a hot mess Monday and Lexi has been crying every morning.🙈 We know she’s having a blast in her robotics/ stem classes and making friends. So for now, I’m going to try my best to spend some quality time with my youngest. ☺️ Are you’re kids in summer camp? Were you also stressed out about leaving them? 😆 #summercamp #momlife #summer #momofgirls #summertime #summermemories #wearthesuit
