Peanut Butter and Jelly Cream Pots

Peanut Butter and Jelly Cream Pots

April 12, 2018

A feast for the eyes and for the lips, these delicious pots of goodness are not only awesome for you, packed with healthy fats, but also great for your gut!

Made using gelatin powder to give it a beautiful jelly-like texture, gelatin has been reported to improve gut health and digestion, protect joints, improve sleep quality, lift mood and improves cognitive abilities, improve skin health, heart health, maintain strong bones, AND help keep you feeling fuller longer!

Make this as a healthy dessert, an afternoon snack or even a decadent breakfast!

Makes 2 pots

Time: 30 mins + 1 hours chill time

INGREDIENTS:

Raspberry Layer

  • 1 cup frozen raspberries, thawed (or berry of choice, strawberries or blueberries would work well also)
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp gelatin powder

Peanut Butter Layer

  • 2 Tbsp peanut butter (100% nuts, no additives/preservatives)

Cream Layer

  • 1 cup coconut yoghurt (or if you tolerate dairy, plain greek yoghurt)
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1 Tbsp rice malt syrup (optional, I found I didn't need this)
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp gelatin powder
  • cacao nibs to garnish

 

DIRECTIONS:

1. Using a stick blender, puree raspberries and transfer to a saucepan over low heat. Once almost bubbling (not boiling), remove from the heat and whisk in gelatin. Pour half the mixture into a cup or container and half into a second container. I found clear glass drinking cups or jars work best so you can see the lined effect. Place in refrigerator to set for 30mins

2. While the berry layer is cooling, warm 2 Tbsp of water, sweetener (if you are using one) and remaining gelatin in a saucepan over low heat until gelatin is dissolved (again, do not let it boil).

3. Remove from the heat and whisk in the yoghurt and vanilla.

4. Remove cups from the fridge, add 1 Tbsp of peanut butter to each pot, smoothing it out evenly.

5. Pour half the yoghurt mixture on top of the peanut butter, and repeat with the second pot.

6. Return to the fridge for an hour, then garnish with cacao nibs, chopped nuts or more raspberries.

Pots will keep in the fridge for up to 4 days.
