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.

  • Hair Tip 💇🏻🙌🏼👇
.
.
Use essential oils to create your own hair serum. 😉
.
Nature’s Truth® oils which are 100% Pure Plant Based, Paraben Free and Gluten Free are my go-to. I mix a drop of their sweet almond and coconut oils together and place it midway to the ends of my hair. It gives my hair that extra shine and helps tame those pesky fly aways. .
.
At night, I add their lavender oil to their coconut oil base and use it as a skin serum. The lavender scent is so soothing and such a perfect way to unwind from my busy day with the little ones. Do you use essential oils? #ad @naturestruth #EmbraceEssentialOils #StimulateTheSenses #healthyhairnow

  • Last Tuesday, Lexi and I attended a baby wearing wall crawl event hosted by my sweet mama friend  @xo.rachelpitzel and @lillebaby in Venice Beach. To say these baby carriers are the best is an understatement. .
.
I've had my fair share of baby carriers for both girls. From high end to ultra inexpensive but the @lillebaby carrier I now own is perhaps the most versatile one I've seem. And the best part is that I've had absolutely zero back and shoulder pain and Lexi loves being in it. Oh and let me not forget about their designs. They're super fun and chic. .
.
A big thank you to @xo.rachelpitzel and @lillebaby for having Lexi and I. We had a great time meeting all the awesome moms and sweet babes. Not to mention how effortless it was walking around town with my little one in tow. Be sure to check out all their well-made carriers and all their rad prints and color options. #ad #babywearingmama #babywear 📸 @khauschka
  • Our little nuggets absolutely love milk. But what kid doesn't right? And since every cup contains balanced nutrition and natural protein, I'm all for it. .
.
Interestingly enough, milk is one of the original farm-to-table foods. Typically arriving on grocery shelves in just two days (or 48 hours, on average) from many family-owned and operated dairy farms. And of the 47,000 dairy farms in the United States, 97 percent – small and large – are family owned. .

  • Blog Post Alert!! 🚨🚨🚨 .

A couple years ago, our oldest, Mia, was turning 4 years old. We wanted to do something extra special but weren’t sure exactly what. .
.
So rather than throw her a big birthday party as per usual, we asked her if she wanted to go to Disneyland instead. She quickly replied, “yes but I want to go to the hotel too.” I’m not even kidding. She asked us that. I think it’s due to us taking her to the park since she was two years old and us always passing by the hotel while walking to and from our parking spot. .
.
To be honest, the convenience factor of it all actually sounded quite heavenly.😍
.
.

Well fast forward 2 yrs and we’re still doing the Disneyland Hotel stay and park visit for Mia’s birthday. It’s sorta become a tradition now. And today, we’re sharing our top 8 reasons why we recommend doing so for your kiddos birthdays as well. Link in bio. 😘#disneylandresort #travelingwithkids #dreambigprincess #disneymom #healthyhairnow

See that car seat on top of my kiddos suitcase? Yes, that's a car seat! I kid you not. @mifold is the most advanced, compact, and portable seat ever invented. 10x smaller than a regular booster seat and it’s just as safe. Perfect for carpooling, with grandparents, in taxis, in rental cars and so on.

Back to school, sports activities and working from home/ on the road with little ones has been kicking my 🍑.😆 But even with all the crazy busy schedules, I'm trying my absolute best to stop and really be present. To savor and store in my mind all the funny and sweet moments our kiddos create daily. .
.
And speaking of moments, any new funny things your kiddos are doing or saying lately? Lexi has become a bilingual taking & dancing machine. And can probably get a Masters in 'tiny' pinching.😆🙈Ouch! 📸: Lilyro_ 😍
