Method
Bottom Layer Method:

Place 2 TB gelatin Into a small bowl or ramekin and cover with 1/3 cup water. Give it a stir and then leave for 2 minutes to bloom and thicken.
Empty coconut milk into a saucepan and top up with 100mls water (so you have 500mls total liquid)
Add vanilla extract and monk fruit concentrate
Heat gently until hot but not boiling. Add the gelatin, turn off heat and stir until dissolved.
Pours. into a large glass pyrex dish or a baking tray and place in fridge for 2 hours.

After 90 minutes, start preparing the top layer:

Place 1 TB gelatin Into a small bowl or ramekin and cover with 2 TB water. Give it a stir and then leave for 2 minutes to bloom and thicken.
Place 180g raspberries into a saucepan. Add 1/3 cup water and 1 TB honey. 
Heat gently and stir until honey is melted, the raspberries are broken up and the mixture is hot but not boiling.
Pour raspberry mix into a blender and blitz until smooth, then pour back into the saucepan.
Add the gelatin and stir until dissolved.
Allow to cool down until it’s just warm to touch (you can speed this up by putting the raspberry mix into a bowl in the fridge for 15 minutes. Otherwise, just wait until it cools on the stove)
Spread raspberry mix over the top of the bottom coconut layer and place back in the fridge to set.
Cut into squares and enjoy as a nourishing snack!
