Healthy Kids Chocolate Coconut Panna Cotta

Even if it seems impossible, chocolate is food that is in the same time tasty and healthy. It protects our heart and is rich in antioxidants, important for our immune system. Coconut has the title of "wonder food" and "perfect food" and it supplies your baby with essential minerals and electrolytes, helps in gastrointestinal diseases, constipation and diarrhea and urinary tract infections due to its antimicrobial properties.

Coconut and chocolate can be used in so many different ways! I’ve created 4 recipe books that contain coconut and chocolate. If you are a new parent though you can get my first book in downloadable format absolutely free by going to http://littlemashies.com/free It is full of baby food ideas and has over 50 recipes from the initial phase of starting pureed solids, right through to meal ideas for older babies. When you sign up we will send you an email asking to confirm you are not a robot (yep we do get a lot of spam you wouldn’t believe some of the bots out there these days!)… anyway as soon as you confirm you are a human being my Baby Food ebook (valued at $9.95) will be sent straight to you in digital format so you can just save it or print it off to use when you need new ideas.

Healthy Kids Chocolate Coconut Panna Cotta

100g chocolate, chopped
1/3 cup maple syrup

Step 1: Place water in a bowl and sprinkle over the gelatine. Let it rest for 5 minutes until the gelatine blooms and absorbs the water.

Step 3: Add the gelatine and cook for 1-2 minutes until it is dissolved and mixed through the chocolate cream.

Step 4: Cool in fridge ½ hour then pour into Mashies pouches.

Step 5: Refrigerate for 4-6 hours until firm.

Step 6: Remove the Panna cotta 5 minutes before serving them and garnish with mixed berries and a sprinkling of cacao powder.

PS - If you wish to use Little Mashies to feed your bubba baby food whilst out and about (or just save money or have the convenience of a pouch), just go to my online store here. If you are in America you will get Little Mashies much cheaper via USA Amazon by clicking here. Id love if you could please leave me a review as I have hundreds from my website purchases but because I’m new on Amazon I have barely any on there! 

I'd love it if you could PIN or SHARE one of my recipes :) It helps my business grow and promotes home cooking amongst parents, which if you can't tell is my major passion in life!

Lots of love,
