Caribbean cream gelatin
It's a favorite Brazilian dessert that's usually served with black currant cream (or crème de cassis). It's great on its own or topped with a liqueur. The crème de cassis is hard to find, but a coffee liqueur makes a great replacement.
- Caribbean Red papaya - 1
- Mint leaves - 2 tbs
- Unflavored gelatin - 1 pkg
- Sugar - 1/4 cup
- Heavy cream - 1 cup
- Coffee liqueur - 1/4 cup
- Cut off the bottom of the Caribbean Red papaya. Stand it up and peel, using a knife with downward strokes. With a large spoon, scoop the seeds out of the bottom. Cut into large pieces that will fit in your blender or food processor.
- In a food processor or blender, add the papaya and mint leaves. Process until somewhat smooth.
- In a medium bowl, add 1/2 the papaya mixture. Sprinkle the unflavored gelatin on top.
- In a microwavable bowl, add the other 1/2 of the papaya mixture. Microwave on high for 2 minutes. Stir into the papaya gelatin bowl. Add sugar and stir until dissolved. Refrigerate.
- When the papaya mixture is slightly gelled, take a large bowl and add the heavy cream. With a mixer, beat until peaks are formed.
- Fold the papaya mixture into the whipped cream.
- Scoop into individual serving glasses. Refrigerate at least 2 hours.
- Serve cold. Top with coffee liqueur, if desired.
