Coconut Water Jelly with Berries
These will be sure-fire winners at your next birthday party and can be made a day or two beforehand. I’ve made these without added sweeteners, just the water from a young coconut, but you can add some honey or coconut nectar if you prefer.
Course: Dessert / Snack
Recipe contains: –
- 500 ml (17 fl oz. / 2 cups) coconut water
- 1 tablespoon powdered grass-fed gelatine
- honey, to taste (optional)
- 200 g (7 oz.) mixed berries (raspberries, blueberries, strawberries or blackberries), plus extra for serving
- flesh of 1 young coconut (120 g / 4¼ oz.), chopped
- 1 tablespoon of chia seeds
Place 3 tablespoons of the coconut water in a small saucepan and sprinkle the gelatine over the surface. Allow the gelatine to soak in to the coconut water for 2 minutes. Place the pan over medium heat and bring to a simmer whilst stirring continuously until the gelatine has completely dissolved. Remove from the heat and set aside.
In a bowl, whisk the remaining coconut water with the honey (if using). Stir in the gelatine mixture, then pour the jelly mixture into six 125 ml (4¼ fl oz.) cups or jelly molds to three-quarters full.
Add some berries and the coconut flesh and sprinkle on some chia seeds.
Chill the jellies for 4 hours, or until set. Remove the jellies from the molds by placing the molds in a bath of hot water for a few seconds (be careful not to submerge in the water), then turn out onto serving plates.
Serve with a scattering of fresh berries.
