Gummies are easy to make at home for a gut friendly, protein rich healthy snack. Using grass fed gelatin powder that promotes gut health and skin health you can make easy homemade gut gummies that the whole family will love.
This recipe is allergy friendly, gluten free, dairy free, nut free and no added sugar. The natural sweetness comes from fruit and natural monk fruit concentrate.
To make gummies
To make gut gummies you simply need to dissolve gelatin powder into a warmed liquid. This could be pureed fruit, juice, coconut water, coconut milk etc. To do so you first need to ‘bloom’ the gelatin in water (a process of allowing the gelatin to swell) or sprinkle over top of you prepared puree or liquid, allowing a few minutes before mixing through). Scroll down to watch the video below to see. Dissolve your bloomed gelatin into warm-hot liquid (not boiling), stirring continuously until all the gelatin is dissolved. You then simply pour the mixture into moulds and set in the fridge.
Which Gelatin to Use?
To make gut gummies you will need to use a powdered gelatin. I like to choose a grass fed, pasture raised gelatin from Australia or New Zealand such a Thankfully Nourished. Use the Live Love Nourish community discount code LIVELOVE for 10% off Thankfully Nourished collagen, gelatin and monk fruit.
Adding Natural Sweetness
When sweetening recipes I prefer to use natural sweetness from whole fruit or naturally derived sweeteners vs artificial sweeteners. Depending on the recipe natural sweetness can be added from pureed fruit, apple sauce, honey, pure maple syrup, stevia drops or monk fruit concentrate. In this recipe I used just several drops of natural monk fruit concentrate to add a touch of sweetness without added sugar.
