  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons unflavored gelatin powder 
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon cornstarch 
  • 1 tablespoon water

 

Directions

  1. Puree strawberries until very creamy and smooth.

  5. Fill a large bowl full of ice. Place a medium sized bowl inside the iced filled bowl and pour gelatin mix in. Stir mix often for 10 minutes until it cools. 
  6. Transfer gelatin into a large pitcher and pour mixture into the six porcelain ramekins placed on a baking sheet.  ( For Valentine’s day you can pour into heart shaped porcelain ramekins!) Cover a baking sheet with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 4-5 hours. 
  7. To unmold, dip molds into a bowl of hot water and invert onto a plate. Garnish with strawberries or any fruit of your choice!
