Instructions

Strawberry Layer:

  • Remove tops from strawberries and place in food processor or blender. 
  • Blend on high until completely liquefied.Add the strawberry ‘juice’ to a small saucepan and bring to a gentle boil. 
  • While the strawberry is heating, place the gelatin powder into 1/4 cup cold water. 
  • Whisk until gelatin powder is dissolved and forms a gummy like consistency. 
  • Once the strawberry juice has come to a gentle boil, turn off the heat and begin to whisk through a third of the gelatin, whisking continuously until completely dissolved. 
  • Repeat until all of the gelatin is mixed through the strawberry juice. 
  • Pour strawberry mixture into moulds so that it reaches halfway. 
  • Alternatively, line a loaf tin with baking paper and pour strawberry mixture into base.Place in freezer or fridge and allow to set. 
  • If setting in the freezer, move to fridge once set. 

Cream Layer:

  • Add coconut milk to a small saucepan with vanilla essence and bring to a boil. 
  • Repeat step 3 from the strawberry layer while coconut milk is heating. 
  • Once coconut milk has come to a boil, turn off the heat.Begin to whisk through a third of the gelatin until it has completely dissolved. 
  • Repeat until all of the gelatin has been mixed into the coconut milk. 
  • Set aside until the coconut milk is warm. 
  • Remove moulds with strawberry gummies from the fridge and top with coconut layer. 
  • Return to the fridge or freezer until coconut layer has set. 
  • Store in an airtight container in the fridge. 

Notes

Notes:
  • If you have a sweet tooth you can add a touch of your choice of natural sweetener such as honey, rice malt syrup or pure maple syrup to the coconut cream layer. I use a naturally sweet coconut milk so I often leave out the sweetener.
