Layered Coconut Pudding with Strawberries & Blueberries


GAPS & Paleo Coconut Pudding with Strawberries & Blueberries -

Looking for something sweet, festive, and easy to make? You can’t get much better than this coconut pudding. I had no idea how easy healthy GAPS-friendly desserts could be until I started working with gelatin. Sweetened with the lightest touch of honey and paired with strawberries and blueberries, this is the perfect Fourth of July or Memorial Day dessert for the GAPS or Paleo family. Put it in a mason jar and it’s even better.

Paleo & GAPS Layered Coconut Pudding with Strawberries & Blueberries


13.5oz (1 can) full-fat coconut milk (find coconut milk here)
1/2 cup shredded coconut (optional) (find coconut products here)
2 Tbsp honey (preferably raw) (find raw honey here)
1 Tbsp gelatin (find grassfed bovine gelatin here)
2 tsp vanilla
1 cup strawberries, sliced
1 cup blueberriesDirections:
In a small saucepan, stir together coconut milk, honey, and vanilla. Heat it over medium-low heat until warm, then add gelatin. Use an immersion blender to quickly combine gelatin and milk mixture. Stir in shredded coconut, using the blender again if necessary.
Pour pudding into a small loaf pan, baking dish, or small jars or ramekins. Allow to cool at room temperature for about an hour then cover it and refrigerate for at least one hour or overnight.

To make layered dessert, use a sharp knife to cut pudding into small squares, about 1/2-inch across. Scoop pudding out with a spoon and place one layer in the bottom of a small (1 pint) mason jar or cup. Top with one layer of strawberries and one layer of blueberries. Repeat process until jar is full.

    Thanks sooo much for the wonderful website and great recipes!!!! Also, thanks for the easy and hassle-free resolution for the mis-understanding regarding the “book” on grain-free recipes……Incidentally, you have a typo under your photo with your precious kids!!!! Happy Happy…..kbr

  2. Funny that you mention this. I have been eating the similar creme brûlée recipe (with a drastic cut in the amt of honey) over strawberries and blueberries. I imagine layering them and letting them sit overnight would render fantastic flavors…how do the two recipes compare? I like that I’m getting raw egg yolks in from the other one.

  3. Can this be made without an immersion blender at all? I lost mine in our last move and would rather not buy one again unless I HAVE to. Thanks!
