This is a fun twist on gelatin gummies using green juice as the base. Not only can you get a great dose of gelatin, which is great for a healthy gut, skin, nails, and hair, but you can also get some fresh greens which provide antioxidants and folate.
What kind of gelatin should you use? I’m a fan of both Vital Proteins and Great Lakes. Make sure you use gelatin from either company, and not collagen, as the latter won’t firm up.
A note on the sweetener used here: I call for a range of honey because your green juice is likely to vary in sweetness. If you pick up a juice that has some fruit juice in it, like orange, pear, or kiwi, you might want to forgo the honey all together. If you use a true green juice like I did here (mine is a blend of celery, cucumber, spinach, mustard greens, kale, collards, and parsley) then you will want to use the full amount of sweetener.
- Place the green juice and lemon juice in the bottom of a sauce pan. Sprinkle the gelatin on top and set aside for a few minutes to let the gelatin "bloom."
- Turn the heat on the lowest setting and heat gently, while whisking constantly, until the mixture is no longer thick and all of the gelatin is dissolved. Do not overheat or cook, just heat until the mixture thins and all of the granules dissolve.
- Add the honey and whisk to combine. Pour into silicone gummy molds and set in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours to set.
