Step 1

Step 1: Prepare the Gelatin
Follow the package instructions to properly prepare the gelatin. This ensures that it fully dissolves and sets correctly.

Step 2

Step 2: Create the Mint Layer
Combine the whipping cream, milk, mint paste, sugar, and vanilla in a saucepan and bring it to a boil. Stir using a blender until smooth, then strain onto the prepared gelatin. Pour 145 grams of the mixture into each of three molds.
Place in the freezer for an hour to set properly.

Step 3

Step 3: Prepare the Gelatin for the Raspberry Layer
Follow the same gelatin preparation step for this layer as you did in Step 1.

Step 4

Step 4: Create the Creamy Raspberry Layer
Combine the whipping cream, raspberries, and sugar in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Stir with a blender until smooth, then strain onto the prepared gelatin. Pour 130 grams of the mixture over the hardened mint layer. Ensure the mixture is at room temperature before pouring.
Place in the freezer for 35-40 minutes to set properly.

Step 5

Step 5: Create the Berry & Nectarine Layer
Combine all the ingredients (raspberries, nectarine, pectin NH, and sugar) in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Continue boiling for a few additional minutes. Cool slightly, then pour 120 grams of the mixture into each glass. Allow it to set for about half an hour.
This layer will harden as it cools, so ensure it’s left undisturbed.

Step 6
