Raspberry delice

An easy and light dessert!

Here is what you need:

125 gr of raspberries
45 gr of sugar
3 x sheets of gelatin (to be softened in cold water in advance)
1 glass of water 

  1. Wash the raspberries and then dry them with a piece of kitchen paper,
  2. Blend the raspberries with a kitchen blender,
  3. Add the water to dilute the puree and then transfer it in a small casserole,
  4. Add the sugar and the gelatin and gently warm the liquid up to allow sugar and gelatin to melt,
  5. Remove the casserole from the stove and let it cool down a bit before pouring in small glass containers
  6. Leave the glasses in the fridge for at least 3 hours 


  • You can filter the raspberry puree (before adding sugar and gelatin) if you want to get rid of the seeds
  • Remove the dessert from the fridge 15 minutes before eating it 
  • Add a couple of drops of a great balsamic vinegar

Comments: GREAT!!! No negative comments this time! :-)
