Method

  1. Pour the water into a small heatproof bowl and sprinkle the gelatin over the surface in an even layer. Set aside for 10 minutes to soften.
  2. To prepare the blueberry compote, simmer the lime juice, maple syrup and ½ cup of blueberries in a small saucepan over medium-low heat for 2 minutes, or until berries have softened and the liquid has reduced to a syrup. Mash blueberries using the back of a fork to coarsely puree. Transfer into a small bowl and refrigerate until cooled.
  3. Place the bowl of softened gelatin over a small saucepan of almost-simmering water, until melted. Remove from the heat and set aside for 1-2 minutes.
  4. Place the macadamias and half of the coconut cream into a high-speed blender and blend on low until finely pureed. Add the remaining coconut cream and blend on medium-low, until smooth and creamy.
  5. Next, add the remaining blueberries, GLOW powder and melted gelatin and blend to combine. Transfer mixture into a medium bowl. Add the coconut yoghurt and gently fold through.
  6. Pour into four 1½ cup (375 ml) capacity serving bowls or ramekins and refrigerate for 4 hours, or until set.
  7. Top with additional coconut yoghurt, blueberry compote. Add edible flowers and toasted coconut
    if desired. Enjoy!

Jasmin Sparrow Drops Stunning COCO Collection

Jasmin Sparrow, the ethical New Zealand jewellery designer adored by many, has launched an exquisite new collection to brighten up these winter days. 

The Jasmin Sparrow COCO collection is a reimagining of the brand’s signature motifs and familiar styles. “The new offering plays into the contemporary-classic balance that is a hallmark of Sparrow’s aesthetic, with pieces that are bold and modern yet timeless, each imbued with the sentimental quality of a precious heirloom,” says the brand.

The collection features baroque-inspired pearls, subtle, circular pendants and delicately-arched hoops, with all the pieces designed to pair effortlessly with previous season’s pieces.

With their unique one-sided shoulder-grazing pearls, the ‘Coco’ earrings offer a playful, asymmetrical take on a modern trend, while the ‘Mini Sparkle’ and ‘Mini Mermaid’ earrings are fresh reimaginings of Sparrow’s signature styles.

Continuing Jasmin Sparrow’s commitment to sustainability, the COCO collection uses 100% recycled silver, ethically-sourced stones and is crafted entirely by jewellers in New Zealand.

The collection is available at jasminsparrow.com and selected stockists around New Zealand.
