Print Recipe


  • 1 cup additive-free coconut milk
  • 4 tsp gelatin (use agar-agar for vegan option)
  • 1 Tbsp honey (see notes above for alternatives)
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger (for spiced version only)
  • 1/8 tsp ground cardamom (use cinnamon for AIP--optional; for spiced version only)
  • 1/8 tsp ground nutmeg (omit for AIP--optional; for spiced version only)


  • In a small bowl, stir together ¼ cup coconut milk and the gelatin. This ensures the gelatin dissolves without clumps.
  • Heat the remaining coconut milk in a small saucepan. When simmering, whisk in the softened gelatin mixture. Whisk until dissolved.
  • Place in the fridge until set, at least 4 hours.
  • When gelatin is set, scoop it out into a food processor or blender.
  • Add the sweetener of your choice and the spices. Pureé until creamy, about 2-3 minutes.
  • Taste and adjust sweetener/spices, if needed.
