Turning one of my old favourite Strawberries and Cream lollies into a healthier version as gut healing gummies made with Great Lakes Gelatin.
The recipe is gluten free, dairy free and refined sugar and provides benefits that promote a healthy gut, healthy skin and more. To find out more about
why gelatin is good for you and your gut health, read our blog post on the benefits of gelatin (+ what is the difference between gelatin and collagen).

Remove tops from strawberries and place in food processor or blender. Blend on high until completely liquefied.
Add the strawberry ‘juice’ to a small saucepan and bring to a gentle boil.
While the strawberry is heating, place the gelatin powder into 1/4 cup cold water. Whisk until gelatin powder is dissolved and forms a gummy like consistency.
Once the strawberry juice has come to a gentle boil, turn off the heat and begin to whisk through a third of the gelatin, whisking continuously until completely dissolved.
Repeat until all of the gelatin is mixed through the strawberry juice.
Pour strawberry mixture into moulds so that it reaches halfway. Alternatively, line a loaf tin with baking paper and pour strawberry mixture into base.
Place in freezer or fridge and allow to set. If setting in the freezer, move to fridge once set.
Add coconut milk to a small saucepan with vanilla essence and bring to a boil.
Repeat step 3 from the strawberry layer while coconut milk is heating.
Once coconut milk has come to a boil, turn off the heat.
Begin to whisk through a third of the gelatin until it has completely dissolved. Repeat until all of the gelatin has been mixed into the coconut milk.
Set aside until the coconut milk is warm.
Remove moulds with strawberry gummies from the fridge and top with coconut layer. Return to the fridge or freezer until coconut layer has set.
Store in an airtight container in the fridge.

If you have a sweet tooth you can add a touch of your choice of natural sweetener such as honey, rice malt syrup or pure maple
syrup to the coconut cream layer. I use a naturally sweet coconut milk so I often leave out the sweetener.
