Healthy Fruit Coulis Recipe for an Animal-Based Diet
Since switching to an animal-based diet that only includes plants that are low on the plant toxicity scale, I’ve had to be more creative when it comes to dessert. The good thing about being on a diet that consists of meat and fruit is that you have plenty of delicious fruits to choose from when you want to have dessert.
No, you’re not limited to eating fresh fruit only. There are many desserts you can make using only fruit or fruit and animal-based ingredients like eggs, collagen powder, and gelatin. My sweet tooth is satisfied on my animal-based diet, which has made this diet very easy to stick to.
Today, I’m sharing my healthy fruit coulis recipe. I often eat it on its own with a spoon, drizzle it over some plain yoghurt, or have it on pancakes I make using bananas and eggs.
Healthy Fruit Coulis Recipe
I won’t waste your time any longer. Here is the recipe:
2 cups of fruit of choice (strawberries, kiwi, mixed berries, mango, etc.)
1 tbsp powdered gelatine or one sheet of gelatine (this is optional. Use it if you want the coulis to set like a jelly on top of a panna cotta, cheesecake, or other healthy dessert)
¼ cup of water
3 tbsp honey
In a saucepan, combine the fruit, water, and honey, and bring to a medium heat. Cook for two to five minutes and stir to make sure that the sweetener has dissolved. Then, remove from the heat, and blend with a stick blender or in a regular blender.
If you are using a sheet of gelatine, soak it in water for five minutes, and then add to the warm, blended mixture. If you are using powdered gelatine, sprinkle it over the pureed, warm mixture, and whisk until the gelatine has dissolved.
Leave to cool. If you added gelatine to your coulis, then pour it over your dessert of choice and place in the fridge to set.
I hope you like this healthy fruit coulis recipe if you try it. It can be used to add excitement and colour to many desserts, but I sometimes eat it with a spoon as is. Why not?
