I've been making gelatin cubes from juice for snacks and school lunches for quite some time and thought making them from coconut milk would be a nice change. I have used coconut oil for years, but have never really done much with coconut milk.
I'm always hearing about the health benefits of coconut and gelatin. Here's a simple, hot weather friendly way to get more of both:
Coconut Milk Gelatin
2 cups coconut milk
2 tablespoons gelatin
Measure 1/2 cup coconut milk into a bowl. Add gelatin and allow to stand until softened.
Slowly heat remaining coconut milk to just under the boiling point. Add some of the heated coconut milk into the gelatin mixture. Stir until lumps are gone. Add gelatin/coconut milk to the coconut milk in the pan. stirring to prevent lumps. Continue to heat until gelatin is completely dissolved.
Pour into shallow pan and allow to cool slightly before putting it in the refrigerator. Chill until set. Cut into squares or desired shapes.
