"Frozen" blackberry and coconut dessert

Put the gelatin soaked in a little cold water. We put the frozen blackberries in a bowl with 100 g of sugar. We put them on the fire and let them boil for 10 minutes. Then we pass the mixture through a strainer, to get rid of the seeds. In the syrup obtained we add gelatin. Stir to dissolve. Then add about 100 grams of sugar.

We taste it and depending on how sweet we like it, we can add more sugar. Then add the rooster. Mix everything well, to homogenize. Pour the composition into a cake pan lined with transparent foil. Put in the freezer overnight. Then pour the dessert on a plate, slice and serve.

A more unusual dessert, but very good, of course for those who like the rooster. Good appetite!

Coconut and orange cookies

These coconut and orange cookies are so fine, so light and delicate that I don't know what to compare them to. The taste of the cookies is a feast for the taste buds, the texture a delight for the lustful mouth and the simple appearance is at the same time sophisticated and very elegant. This recipe for guns is really worth trying, especially since the ingredients are quite affordable. The combination of coconut and oranges has delighted me since I discovered it in the recipe for fluffy nests and these cookies confirmed to me that it was not just a coup de foudre, but it remains a constant love :).

Number of servings: 25 servings
Degree of difficulty: average


  • 1 can of 400 ml coconut milk.
  • 190 grams of flour
  • 60 grams of grated coconut
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 150 grams of caster sugar
  • 90 grams of powdered sugar
  • 100 grams of butter with 80% fat
  • 100 grams of coconut butter
  • 1 whole egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract & # 8211 100-150 grams
  • powdered sugar for sprinkling

The first step is to put the 400 ml. of canned coconut milk in a saucepan that you put on low heat, boil slowly until reduced to less than half (approx. 150 ml.) and thicken well.

The coconut milk thus prepared is left to cool well, then it is passed to the proper preparation of the gizzards.

1. For the biscuits, put in a bowl 50 grams of butter and 40 grams of coconut butter together with the caster sugar. Mix the composition with the mixer until smooth (picture 1).

2. Mix the flour, coconut flakes, salt and baking powder well (picture 2).

3. Add over the whole egg, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract and mix until it becomes a creamy composition.

4. Add flour mixed with coconut flakes spoon by spoon, mixing on low speed, then add 3-4 tablespoons of reduced coconut milk. The composition should be creamy but firm (picture 3).

5. With a teaspoon or a piece of garnish, pour small piles with a diameter of 4 cm. in two trays covered with baking paper. It should result in 50-52 pieces, depending on their size. I poured them with the pos then lightly leveled the tip formed with a wet finger (picture 4).

6. Bake the biscuits in the preheated oven at 180 degrees Celsius, both trays at once, for 12-15 minutes. In the middle of the baking time, the trays are inverted. The biscuits should be lightly colored on the edge in golden brown, not browned too much (picture 5).

Allow the biscuits to cool in the trays placed on top of a grill and in the meantime prepare the coconut cream.

In a bowl put 50 grams of butter, 60 grams of coconut butter, 3 tablespoons of coconut milk, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract and powdered sugar and mix until the composition becomes homogeneous, frothy and white.

The coconut cream is put in a pos with the right wide tip, whether it is starry or round, and it is poured on half of the biscuits, forming a ring. The hole in the middle is filled with 1 teaspoon of orange curd (click here for the orange curd recipe).

Cover the biscuits at the base, those with cream and orange curd with the other biscuits, powder generously with powdered sugar and the biscuits are ready for tasting.

Fresh biscuits, immediately after assembling with cream, will have a slightly crunchy texture, like meringue.

If you leave the cookies in a cool place from today to tomorrow, the texture will become very fine and the cookies will be even better.

I hope you like this cookie recipe whose result simply delighted me :). It's the perfect cake recipe for a tea party and it's just as suitable for holiday cake platters. Good job and good appetite!

Note: coconut butter is available in almost any health food store and coconut milk is also found in hypermarkets. If you can't find it and don't find it, replace the coconut butter with regular butter and the coconut milk with whipped cream, but the taste will not be the same.

Extra creamy & # 8211 raspberry ice cream

Extra creamy & # 8211 raspberry ice cream. The simplest homemade ice cream recipe with 3 ingredients: natural whipped cream, raspberries and powdered sugar. No eggs! This ice cream can also be prepared with strawberries, strawberries, blackberries, blueberries, apricots, bananas, cherries, cherries or peaches.

My mother has been making ice cream for years only according to this recipe: equal parts of fruit and cream and a little powdered sugar to taste, depending on how sweet or sour the fruit is.

You can't go wrong with this raspberry ice cream recipe. The fruits must be fresh and well ripened and the whipped cream must be min. 30% fat (eg La Dorna whipped cream, Lidl Pilos or Kaufland Whipping Cream). At Dorna it has 35% fat and gives the ice cream an even greater creaminess. The cream must be well cooled in the fridge before beating! Do not use vegetable porridge, imitations of whipped cream like hulala or meggle because you spoil the goodness of ice cream.

Raspberries are picked from your own garden. I also picked a few bunches of Red currant & # 8211 if they were still ripe. I put them in ice cream too.

If you like classic ice cream (with eggs cooked on a steam bath) you can read here the basic recipe for vanilla ice cream.

This year I made another simple and tasty ice cream from strawberries with yogurt and honey & # 8211 still without eggs.

From the ingredients below I obtained approx. 1 L of ice cream & # 8211 exactly how much capacity my ice cream machine has.


I hope you have some blackberries kept in the freezer. If not, you will be as amazed as I am when you see them. They almost fooled me that they were fresh if I didn't see them one day in a special box of frozen products in a supermarket. They looked so good I couldn't help myself. And they were huge. I can't wait to see how carefully they were frozen because they looked impeccable, as if they were picked yesterday. It doesn't matter if they are frozen, especially since most of the time we prepare a smoothie with frozen fruits.

I used them as fast as I could in this blackberry smoothie with bananas and coconut milk to start my day with a healthy glass full of antioxidants and vitamins. It only takes 5 minutes and is very satisfying for a quick breakfast, especially if you have a very well cooked banana and a Greek yogurt on hand. I love coconut milk and I use it quite often, but if you don't have it you can easily replace it with soy milk or almond milk.


  • 200 gr. blackberries
  • 1 banana
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 150 gr. Greek yogurt
  • 300 ml. Coconut milk

Preparation method:

1 First put the coconut milk and yogurt in the blender.

2 Add the blackberries and a medium banana cut into pieces, and if you like a little sweeter you can add a tablespoon of honey, maple syrup or any other favorite sweetener.

3 Mix for 2-3 minutes until you get a smooth and beautifully colored mixture.

4 Check the consistency and add more if you want 2-3 ice cubes or a few tablespoons of cold water.

5 Prepare two glasses in which you pour this delicious smoothie and enjoy it immediately. If there is a portion left, it can be kept in the fridge for a few hours for later snacking.

I hope you liked it and appreciate it as much as I do, and if you want other healthy smoothies, I recommend a detoxifying green smoothie with celery, cucumber and apple or raspberry smoothie with bananas and chia seeds.

Coconut mousse

Coconut mousse is incredibly simple, but it is a refined dessert, suitable even for the most special occasions. Even if you make it for an anniversary or to satisfy a craving, you have to try this recipe that can't help but come out!

Countertop ingredients:

- 175 g butter at room temperature

- lemon peel and juice, to taste.

Ingredients for mousse:

- 360 ml canned coconut milk

Countertop preparation:

1. Mix the butter with the sugar until a thick but homogeneous cream is obtained. Then sift the flour over and mix until smooth.

2. Beat the eggs lightly, then add over the dough, along with the lemon juice, lemon peel and a pinch of salt. Mix well.

3. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius and line a 20x25 cm tray with baking paper in which the dough is then poured and leveled with a spatula or spoon. Leave the top in the oven for about 30-35 minutes, until it turns golden. Remove and leave to cool, then cut out the round shapes with the mousse rings (or with the cake ring, if you want to make a cake with this recipe).

Mousse preparation:

1. Let the gelatin soak in water for about 5 minutes. Meanwhile, put the coconut milk in a saucepan, along with the sugar and salt, over medium heat. Stir until smooth.

2. Remove the sweetened coconut milk from the heat, add gelatin to it and mix until incorporated. It is very important that the milk does not boil, because it spoils the gelatin. Leave this mixture aside for about 15-20 minutes, until it cools.

3. Meanwhile, beat the whipped cream left in the freezer for 15 minutes. After it hardens, add a tablespoon of sugar and mix a little, until it becomes a little stronger. Then it is incorporated in the coconut milk, first a quarter of the quantity, then all the remaining cream. Stir gently until smooth. At this point it is important that the coconut milk is cooled, otherwise the cream will be chewed.

4. Pour the mousse into special rings, at the base of which the top is placed. As a decoration, you can stick fruit on the wall of the rings before pouring the mousse. Refrigerate the rings for at least 3 hours before serving the mousse. As a decoration idea, you can use cocoa powder, coconut or white chocolate and fruit.

The coconut mousse goes great with berries, mango or lime, but it is excellent as such, so do not hesitate to try this simple recipe!
