How to make it:

Mix one package of the pineapple gelatin with one tablespoon of clear powder gelatin. Add two cups of hot water and mix until everything is dissolved.

Place this preparation on a plastic mold and let it solidify in the fridge for at least one hour.

In another bowl mix the other package of pineapple gelatin with one spoon of clear powder gelatin and add one cup of hot water and one cup of coconut milk. Mix it well until it is all dissolved.

Leave it to cool down before adding this preparation to the already set pineapple gelatin. The leave it in the fridge overnight before taking out of the molds.

I made some seashells using plastic molds and the coconut gelatin preparations to decorate.

Serve with the shredded desiccated coconut, you can paint the seashells and add the cherry on top to give it a cocktail look!

# Hydrated gelatin should be mixed with warm liquids otherwise it will solidify immediately and damage the result of the gelatin.

#Lately, I have reduced the de amount of sugar in my gelatin recipes and I can say that as lower the amount of sugar, better sets the gelatin. Also, I have had better results mixing the neutral gelatin and the sugar together before adding it to the liquid.
