Cashew milk cinnamon maca jello – paleo


As a kid, my grandma used to make jello every Sunday.  I never was a real addict but especially in summer I enjoyed vanilla jello with strawberry sauce and berry syrup.

Lately, I have been experimenting a lot with gelatin. Gelatin contains collagen which has a lot of health benefits for you skin, nails, hair, bones and your gut. But be careful – I am not talking about conventional gelatin from poor porks. I am talking about gelatin* from organic, grass fed cows who have had a happy life outside.

Somehow, the idea of remaking jello was born and I was trying different variations over the last few weeks. I am so proud,I finally managed my cashew milk jello recipe! 

Thanks to the different spices this jello has a unique, somehow chocolaty and a bit caramelly taste.
And of course, there is some maca* in there. You know how much I am trying to support my hormones.

Served with fresh fruit and with some chocolate sauce on top, these jellos are a perfect dessert – and even very low in calories and high in protein! For the chocolate sauce I just mixed raw cacao*, coconut oil, vanilla and some orange peel together.
