Looking to get more gelatin into your diet but don’t like making bone broth? Well, I still think you should be making broth, but gummies are a great way to get in some gut-healing nutrients as well as enjoy a fun little treat. Gelatin contains two amino acids that are typically lacking in our diets, glycine and proline. Glycine in particular is wonderful important for healthy skin, nails, hair, as well as connective tissue.
If you are looking for a good source, I would suggest getting grass-fed gelatin, like this product, and it comes in both beef and pork varieties. Make sure to get the “red can”, as the green one does not gel (but is wonderful for adding to smoothies like this one). You can use anything for gummy molds–I like these cute hearts, but I started out making them in a small baking dish and cutting them into little squares. Also, be prepared that these will not last long… even in a non-AIP household!
- ¾ cup lemon juice
- 1 cup frozen raspberries
- 3 tablespoons honey
- ¼ cup grass-fed gelatin (I like this brand)
- Place lemon juice and raspberries in a blender and blend on high until completely mixed. Pour into a saucepan.
- Add the honey and gelatin and whisk together. You will have a thick paste. Turn the heat on low, and continue to whisk the mixture for 5-10 minutes, until it becomes thin and everything is incorporated. Take off the heat.
- Pour into silicone molds or a small baking dish. Set in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour to firm up.
- If you used a small baking dish as a receptacle, cut into bite-size squares. Otherwise, remove gummies from their molds and enjoy!
