- 2 tbsp honey (optional)
- 2 tbsp gelatin
- ¼ c cool water
- 1 c hot water
- 2 c coconut water
- Puree the peaches in a food processor for a few minutes until smooth in texture. If you opt for adding honey, do so at this point
- Sprinkle 2 tbsp of gelatin over 1/4 c cool water. Allow to set or “bloom” for a few minutes. Add the gelatin to 1 c. of hot water. Whisk vigorously and thoroughly to ensure all the gelatin is dissolved. Then add 2 c. of coconut water and the peach puree to the gelatin mixture. Whisk thoroughly again. Pour into serving bowls or into a lightly greased 8x8 pan to cute into cubes. Put in refrigerator for at least one hour to set.
- Top with whipped coconut and berries of your choice. Toasted coconut also makes for a nice topping.
