Rapidito en Viernes=Quicky Friday

Coconut Rainbow Panna Cotta

Hola Amigos! Happy Friday! Another week went by and now we are all ready to relax in a hopefully snow and storm free weekend.
Usually my little one goes to pre-school today, but mom has been battling the Flu for a week now and this morning when we woke up ready to go, snow was falling non stop...10 minutes after cleaning the snow off my car, it was already covered up again...so I gave up and called my own snow day. I felt kind of guilty because the little guy loves his 2 hours every other day and he had to miss it today, so we decided to make our own study hour today and we learned about the Rainbow!


We watched an old episode of Sesame Street where Elmo learns about the colors of the Rainbow with Rosita using the old Roy G. Biv (Red, orange, yellow, green Blue , Indigo and Violet) with monsters...it was a blast and then we put it into practice by making some tasty rainbow for ourselves.
Here is our recipe for Coconut "Roy G. Biv" Panna Cotta.

Coconut Roy G. Biv  Panna Cotta

1 Cup Milk
1 Cup Coconut Milk
1 Cup Condensed Milk
1/2 TSPS Vanilla Extract
1 TBSP sugar
1 Envelope Unflavored Gelatin
Food Coloring

On a Saucepan pour 1 cup milk and unflavored gelatin and let it sit there for a couple of minutes for the gelatin to get absorbed. After it's absorbed, heat on on medium heat stirring constantly until it's dissolved. Add coconut milk, condensed milk, vanilla extract, sugar and stir until all is well blended.
Separate the milk mix in seven equal parts on 7 different bowls. Add a couple drops of food coloring to each bowl until you get the desired color.

 Pour each color on your container. I chose little fruit jars that I can't let go because they are kind of cute about 10oz each. Start with your red, wait about 10 minutes to pour the next color. Keep doing this until all your layers are done.

Listo

Such a delicate flavor and so colorful.
You can top it off with what else, a "cloud" of whip cream and some rainbow sprinkles

I think this is a sweet lesson my little bud is not going to forget any time soon.
A perfect ending to a no so perfect day, I'll say!

Wishing you a bright and colorful weekend my friends, and remember, everything tastes better with a
Pinch of Love!

Besitos,
Lizy
