Ingredients

  • 1 can canned coconut milk (full-fat) 13-14 oz.
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 tbsp unflavored gelatin grass-fed
  • 1/2 cup sweetener confectioner's style (Swerve or monk fruit)
  • 3 tbsp lime juice (or use 4-5 drops of lime essential oil)
  • 1 tbsp lime zest
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp shredded coconut unsweetened

Instructions

  • Prepare 6 ramekins or dessert dishes.
  • Add about a fourth of a cup of the liquid portion of the coconut milk in a bowl with a tablespoon of gelatin.
  • Mix it together for the gelatin to soften.
  • In a saucepan, heat the rest of the coconut milk and 1 cup almond milk on a medium high heat until nearly boiling. The solidified coconut milk will melt down and mix with the almond milk.
  • Take it off the heat and add 1 teaspoon of vanilla.
  • Pour the mixture into the bowl with the gelatin.
  • Whisk together the gelatin and milk.
  • Then whisk in the 1/2 cup of sweetener.
  • Mix in the lime essential oil or zest and juice.
  • Pour the mixture in a high power blender and blend on high for 40-50 seconds.
  • Divide the mixture evenly between the 6 dessert dishes.
  • Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
  • Just before serving, sprinkle about a teaspoon of unsweetened shredded coconut on each as well as a bit of extra lime zest for color (optional).
