To celebrate I made this recipe for a Chocolate version of the french dish Pot de Creme, A loose custard dessert made with milk or cream and normally thickened with eggs, the dish dates back to the 17th century.

I have updated it to be healthier and paleo friendly.

Instead of eggs I used gelatin to thicken this dessert, using gelatin instead of eggs adds extra health benefits to this delicious dessert and along with the amazing health benefits you get from the cacao powder, which I list in my recipe for Chocolate Madeleine Cakes this recipe is much healthier than a regular dessert would be Yay!

 

Here are some Health Benefits of a good quality gelatin such as the great lakes brand.

1) Gut Health: Gelatin helps fill holes and damaged stomach lining as well as reducing gut inflammation.

2) Bone Health: We need calcium and collagen to keep our bones healthy and two great ways to get collagen is from the gelatin if bone broth or grass fed powdered gelatin.

3) Joint Health: For Healthy joints and the connective tissues in your joints, which are made of collagen, adding gelatin to your diet can help strengthen your joints and help joint pain.

4) Skin and Hair Health:  Since there is collagen in gelatin it means that it’s also great for your skin and hair, collagen helps keep your skin young and wrinkle free and improves the strength and shine of your hair.
