Coconut Jellos



Coconut Jellos ! Finally I made some - if you've been following me for a while now, you'll know I absolutely love (might even be in love with) Coconut ... all shapes, textures, forms.

I posted about Bread, Cheesecake, a Curry dish, and blah blah, but had yet to make jellos.

Delicious and refreshing, especially with fresh pieces of Pineapple. I have used "Lite" Coconut Milk in this recipe, trying to cut back the fat in-take a bit {whink}. Roy suggested Full Fat next time.. well, of course, he'd say that - he can afford it {rather - his body can}. All of us aren't that lucky, unfortunately ... :-(

I added toasted coconut flakes to one half and left the other half plain.

Coconut Jellos

2 cans (400ml each) Coconut Milk "Lite"
20g Plain Gelatin
1 cup Water
1 cup Caster Sugar
1 t Coconut extract

Toasted, crushed Coconut flakes, optional

1.) Heat the Coconut Milk until just hot.
2.) Meanwhile, in a separate pot, pour in the Water and sprinkle the Gelatin over - Heat, whilst stirring, until the Gelatin has dissolved.
3.) Add the dissolved Gelatin to the Coconut Milk, together with the Caster Sugar - Heat until the Sugar has dissolved and the mixture is smooth.
4.) Remove from heat, add the Coconut extract - let cool.

Pour into a 1 liter mold or use 2 smaller molds as I did and add Toasted Coconut flakes to one part. The flakes will rise to the top - Refrigerate at least 4 hours or overnight to completely set before cutting into shapes.

Serve with fresh fruit {pineapple goes really nice with this} or Fruit Pulp drizzled over.

{ I have to go do my share in the kitchen make-over .. like taking pics of my hardworking, sexy husband kitchen - oh, and as it's mostly my ideas, I supervise as well }

Ciao for now

    1. Lol.. I once forgot to add eggs to a box cake mixture, my then little girl reminded me - after the batter was in the oven! I'm working on a richer and sweeter version of these jellos for my husband - keep an eye out.

  27. Coconut fat is different that other fats, it will speed up your metabolism and help you lose weight. Coconut oil makes for skinny pigs. ;)

    Great recipe, I'll just use the full fat version!
