Creamy Coffee Milkshake- Eat Nourish Glow Recipes

Prep time: 5 minutes
Freeze time: 30 minutes
Serves 1–2


INGREDIENTS:

Protein cubes:
1 tbsp grass-fed gelatin powder (can be bought online from Amazon.com)
125ml organic tinned coconut milk
250ml hot espresso
1/2 tsp coconut crystals (optional)
A small pinch of sea salt


Milkshake:
250ml espresso
250ml coconut milk
1 tbsp coconut butter
A pinch of vanilla powder
4 protein cubes
4 ice cubes


PREPARATION PROCEDURE:

1) For the protein cubes, sprinkle the gelatin over the cold coconut milk and stir until the gelatin has dissolved and a paste has formed. Leave to rest for a few minutes, then pour the hot espresso on top and stir.

2) Add the coconut crystals (if using) and the salt, then pour the mixture into ice-cube trays. 

3) Freeze for 30 minutes to cool.

4) This makes more than enough protein cubes so you have extra for other days.

5) To make the milkshake, put all the ingredients into the blender and blend until combined. 

6) Serve.


Quick Tips:

How long should I refrigerate the gelatin?

Gelatin readily dissolves in hot water, and sets to a gel on cooling. Gelatin added directly to cold water does not dissolve well. Different gelatin recipes will require different techniques and refrigeration times. 

The gelatin should be the consistency of an extremely dense pudding. Keep it in the fridge for approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes (depending on the volume, thickness, and chilling temperature. You need it like this so you can suspend coconut crystals in the gelatin.

Why Use Gelatin?

Gelatin is a natural foodstuff. Chemically, gelatin is a pure protein. Gelatin is unusually high in amino acids Glycine and Proline. It is found in most gummy candy as well as other products such as marshmallows, gelatin dessert, and some ice cream, dip and yogurt.

What are the Vegetarian Alternatives for Gelatin?

Pectin can be used as a gelatin substitute, but is not generally recommended due to the acid and sugar required for proper gelling. It can be tricky to get the right flavor and texture. The Vegetarian Society suggests agar or carrageenan, both of which are derived from seaweed. Like gelatin, they are flavorless and only require water to work. They also are considered easier to use.
