JELLY GUMMIES GREAT FOR TUMMIES

Last week at the Goodnessme Box Wholefoods Markets presos I introduced the crowd to the delicious delights that are gelatin gummies. We’ve only just really started playing around with these ourselves recently so with that experience I thought absolutely there may be a few others out there who would love them – and the result was a big juicy YES!

These gelatin gummies are so scrumptious yet because they’re made of just a few simple whole ingredients and non of the colours, additives, sugars or preservatives that come with traditional jelly / gummies / lollies it makes them not only easy but super nutritious too.

How nutritious?

Well, let’s take their main ingredient : gelatin, from pasture fed and raised cows (we used the I Quit Sugar Gelatin Powder as it’s so easy, but Great Lakes do a great product or you can hunt down other alternatives should you wish – please share if you do find a good one in the comments below!).

Gelatin (cooked collagen from from the connective tissue and bones of animals) is rich in amino acids, the building blocks for proteins – remember protein vital for growth development and repair, stabilising energy and appetite among a tonne of other things but hold onto those nuggets for now. However of these proteins gelatin is supercharged with glycine, an amino acids used to strengthen the lining of our gut. When our gut integrity is good and we have a beautiful strong lining we absorb the nutrition in our diet well. Well absorbed nutrition means we can THRIVE.

BUT! Gelatin, made from collagen, is also WONDERFUL for our skin health (natural collagen + skin = youthful glowing plump skin cells = happiness) and to improve the mobility of our joints too (returning to our equation – mobile joints = lots of activity = feel young = happiness!!!!)

So, whilst the little gelatin / jelly gummies are great for kids to improve the state of their gut and for a legit tasty and nutritious alternative to the crud you find in the confectionery isle of your local, honestly, they’re good for all of us. Everyone can do with a bit more care and attention to their gut – it’s where our health stems from.

Recipe for these delicious juicy numbers below. Will continue popping some recipes up for different flavours we make as we explore and build our fun with this goodness!

JELLY GUMMIES 

Makes 12 small gummies (we used a silicon ice cube tray)

1/2 cup no sugar added juice / fresh pressed juice : orange, apple, berry

1-2 tablespoons rice malt syrup or 2 teaspoons honey

1 tablespoon gelatin (we used I Quit Sugar) 

1 1/2 tablespoons water

Warm juice and sweetener of choice on the stove in a small saucepan until medium warm. Do not boil.

Whilst juice is warming, mix together gelatin and water. It will be clumpy, don’t freak out it all comes together.

Once juice is warm, remove from heat and add gelatin mix to the saucepan. Whisk until dissolved.

Pour into silicion moulds or a lined square cake tin and place in fridge for 1 hour to set.

Keep up to 1 week in the fridge.
