Almond Blanc-Manger


Madame de Savigny Elegantia

Ingredients for 6 people


- 200g almonds

- 200 g + 3 tablespoons of sugar

- 8 sheets of gelatin


- 1 sachet of vanilla sugar

- 2 drops of bitter almond extract

- 50 cl very cold whipping cream

For the fruit coulis:


- 250g strawberries

- 250 g of raspberries

- 2 or 3 tablespoons of sugar

- 1 bottle of Champagne Madame Champagne from Savigny Elegantia


Preparation :


Immerse the almonds for 2 minutes in boiling water, drain them and pinch them one by one with your fingers to remove the skin, then put them in a food processor to reduce them to powder. Pour 25 cl of water and 100 g of sugar into a saucepan. Heat while stirring until the sugar is completely dissolved, bring to the boil and remove from the heat. Then add the ground almonds and mix.


Filter this almond milk in a strainer lined with muslin, then leave to stand for 12 hours in the refrigerator.


Soak the gelatin for 10 minutes in a bowl of cold water.


Pour the almond milk into a saucepan and add the rest of the sugar and the vanilla sugar. Heat over low heat, stirring constantly, until the sugars have melted. Do not boil.


Strain the gelatin with your fingers and add it to the warm almond milk. Mix until it is completely dissolved, then let it cool and add the bitter almond extract.


Whip the crème fraîche until stiff and frothy. Incorporate it delicately into the cold almond milk, pour everything into a fluted mold and leave to set for 8 hours in the refrigerator.


Prepare the coulis: quickly rinse the strawberries, pat them dry and hull them. Put them in the blender with the raspberries, then sieve them, pressing well. Add the sugar, mix, pour into a sauce boat and put in the fridge.


When ready to serve, soak the mold for 10 seconds in hot water and invert it onto a serving platter. Garnish it with the fruit and serve with the coulis.


To be enjoyed with our *Champagne Elegantia which will bring its touch of minerality for an airy and voluptuous dessert.
