I am telling you, this one is soooo delicious. Melts in your mouth and you are thankful if they only serve you one bowl because you would eat five if you could have so many. It is one of those dessert you are going to be asked for the recipe. Hope you have an occasion this one out.
I first got to taste this at a dinner party with our friends the farmers, above the road. Of course I got the recipe.
On Easter day I decided to try this myself. I had high expectations and was not sure if I would be able to make it as good as I remembered it was.
I followed the recipe and it was just as good this time. Every one loved it and of course I was asked for the recipe.
If you think you are not the coconut type, try it anyways… at least for you dinner guests : ) It is easy to make.
- 400 ml coconut milk in a can
- 30 g coconut flakes
- 120 g sugar
- 3 gelatin
- 400 ml whipping cream
- 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
- 10 g vanilla sugar (or 1 teaspoon vanilla extract)
Put coconut milk, coconut flakes, suar, vanilla sugar and lemon juice in a pot, bring to boil. Take the pot of the heat and let rest for 5 minutes.
But the coconut mixture in a bowl and add the gelatin, stir it in and then let it cool for 40 minutes. ( There is also a gelatin available made from plants)
Whip the cream and add it to the mixture.
Refrigerate for at least 2 hours
Serve with a good berry sauce or jam, and decorate with shredded chocolate.
I used this recipe for a jam
- 1 cup frozen berries ( I used a blend of raspberries, strawberries and blueberries)
- 1/2 cup sugar
- Little bit of water, about 1/4 of a cup
Put everything in a pot, bring to boil. Lower to medium heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and let it cool down. If you like you can put it in a blender for finer texture.
