Healthy gummy bear recipe

If you love gummy bears and other jelly lollies, then this recipe is for you!


Homemade jellies with gelatin are a wonderful replacement for those additive and refined sugar filled jellies.

Gelatin is derived from collagen and contains amino acids which are great for our health, especially gut health. Glycine helps repair the gut lining by strengthening and protecting the mucous membrane layer.

Some of the health benefits are improvement of the digestive function, strengthening of the immune system and reduction of inflammation.

  • 1 tbsp grass fed gelatin

  • 2 tbsp filtered water

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Mix gelatin and water in small bowl and allow to sit until it becomes soft like apple sauce.
