Have you ever set out to create a dish and, in the process, wound up with something entirely different? Well that’s exactly what happened with this Paleo Homemade White Chocolate Jello! I set out to make some pudding, but what I ended up with is a treat I enjoy even more! I actually wasn’t sure if I should call it a mousse or a jello and went back and forth way longer than I should haveBut I landed on the conclusion that I made you a fluffy jello that is out-of-this-world delicious!

I am usually all about dark chocolate, but there’s something about Christmas time that softens my heart {and tastebuds} to all things white chocolate. However, you have to be super careful if you buy it at the store. Many white chocolate varieties are loaded with artificial ingredients and contain no actual cocoa butter at all {which is an essential ingredient in anything that claims the name “chocolate”}. This is why I always keep raw cocoa butter on hand so that we can make our own white chocolate desserts, like this Paleo Homemade White Chocolate Jello!

This recipe is one big paradox. It’s both light and rich. Fluffy yet dense. Healthy but tastes decadent. It’s unique and familiar and will leave you wanting more!

One of the key ingredients in this Paleo Homemade White Chocolate Jello is Vital Proteins Gelatin! I have been using Vital Proteins products for a few months now and I talked about all the reasons I love them in this post. One of my favorite products is this collagen gelatin {below}! I went from being freaked out by gelatin and avoiding using it at all costs, to getting excited to create recipes where it is the star!

This Paleo Homemade White Chocolate Jello sets up beautifully thanks to the Vital Proteins Gelatin! I poured and chilled it in these cute little jars, but you absolutely could make them into fun shapes using silicone molds! I had plans to make some cute snowflakes and Christmas trees, but I just didn’t have the time {can anyone else relate right now}?! It can be dressed up as a light and elegant dessert, or made into a fun treat that’s perfect for kids! It really can be all things to all people!

 Paleo Homemade White Chocolate Jello: Substitutions 

I made more batches of this recipe than I can count, because I wanted to test out many different substitutions. So here’s what I found.

Coconut cream.

 I tried a mixture of coconut cream and almond milk and it did NOT go well {like it separated and had a hard crusty top}! I recommend using only one kind of dairy-free liquid, and my highest recommendations are coconut cream and full-fat coconut milk. I cannot guarantee success with anything else!

Cocoa butter. 

Ok you could substitute real white chocolate for the cocoa butter in this recipe. However, you may need to adjust the amount of powdered sugar so that it isn’t too sweet.

Powdered sugar.

 To keep this recipe paleo, make your own powdered sugar. If you don’t need to keep it paleo than regular powdered sugar works really well! You may need to adjust the amount to your liking. We enjoy our desserts a little less sweet, which also allows the white chocolate flavor to really shine! But you absolutely can add more if you wish!
