Strawberry Yogurt Gelatin

Hi everyone, today's recipe is perfect as a Mother's day treat, it's really easy to make, it looks beautiful, it's a healthy treat and it's also very budget friendly.

  • 2 envelopes of Unflavored Gelatin (7grams each)
  • 2 cups of All Natural, nonfat, Plain Yogurt
  • 2 cups of chopped Strawberries
  • 2 cups of water
  • 1/3 cups Granulated Sugar (the sugar is to taste, feel free to add more if you want)
  • 1 tablespoon of Honey
  • ½ tablespoon of Vanilla Extract

To Garnish: (optional)
  • Chopped Strawberries
  • Melted Chocolate

In a saucepan on medium heat, add in ½ cup of water,  2 cups of chopped strawberries and 1/3 cup of sugar, cook this on medium heat for about 20 minutes or until the strawberries turn into a marmalade kind of paste.  Let the marmalade cool down a bit before using it, (I placed it in the refrigerator for 10 minutes!)

In another  saucepan, add in 1½ cups of water and bring to a boil, once the water is boiling, turn off the heat and stir in the gelatin into to the boiling water, stir well until the gelatin is completely dissolved. Then set aside until you are ready to use it (keep it in a warm place!)

In a large bowl add in 2 cups of Plain Yogurt and season it with 1 tablespoon of honey and ½ tablespoon of Vanilla extract, stir well, then add in the gelatin mixture, and the strawberry mixture, stir well until everything is well incorporated. Taste the flavor, add more honey if needed.
Once you are happy with the flavor, pour the gelatin into your mold.

***to prevent the gelatin from sticking to your mold, dampen a paper towel with a bit of vegetable oil, and rub this all over your mold, then pour the gelatin right into your mold.**

Refrigerate for at least 3-4 hours.

To remove the gelatin from your mold, run a small knife or spatula around the edges of your gelatin, then flip your mold onto your plate, and voila!

Decorate your gelatin with chopped strawberries and melted chocolate.
