Recipe type: Sweets
Serves: 8
  • 1 cup milk
  • 5 teaspoons unflavored gelatin
  • 16 oz. (2 cups) sour cream
  • 12 oz. (1½ cups) heavy cream
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1-2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 pint blueberries
  • 1½ cups chopped pineapple
  1. Sprinkle the gelatin over the milk and allow to stand for 5 minutes, until the gelatin blooms. Place the milk and gelatin mixture in the microwave for 1 minute or heat in a small saucepan on very low heat, just until the gelatin melts. Do NOT boil. Set aside to cool.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, mix the sour cream, heavy cream, sugar, vanilla and lemon zest using a whisk attachment on a standing mixer or using a hand mixer. Start mixing on low heat and eventually increase the speed to high until it's a thick mixture.
  3. Pour in the milk and gelatin, mix to combine. Add the blueberries and gently fold them in. I usually use ½ a pint in the dessert and use the other half to serve as a garnish. You can also use any other kind of berries or fruit that you like. Do NOT add the pineapple to the creamy gelatin mixture, or else your dessert will not set.
  4. Pour the dessert into some sort of mold. I used my bread pan, but you can use a bundt pan or any kind of deep dish. You can also make individual portions.
  5. Refrigerate until set. There is a good amount of gelatin in the dessert, so it sets fairly quickly, about 1-2 hours. This is an ideal dessert to make the night before you are planning to serve it.
  6. To serve, pour some hot water into a large pot or into the sink and dunk the bottom of your pan into the hot water for 30 seconds or so. Invert the pan onto a plate and the dessert should slide right out. Serve with fresh pineapple and more berries.
