Gummies are a HUGE hit with my patients – HUGE, so I thought I’d share some new recipes.
If you’re new to this concept, you can read all about the Health Benefits of Gelatin – the main ingredient in my gummies here. If you like the idea, you might want to try out some other flavours here:
- Sour Citrus Gummies (for those who love a sour worms – without the sugar).
- Mango & Cream Gummies (is there a better flavour combination?)
- Chocolate Gummies (perfect for after dinner cravings)
- Coconut & Lime Gummies (for something a little creamier, yet a tropical twist)
This recipe makes approximately 25 gummies.
- 1 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
- 4 tablespoons grass-fed gelatin
- Combine gelatin and juice in a small bowl; stir slowly to combine. Once combined set aside for 5 minutes to allow gelatin to ‘set’ AKA become ‘gel like’.
- Once the consistency has changed to resemble a thick paste, scrape mixture into a saucepan over low heat for approximately 1-2 minutes in order to liquefy. This will ensure the gelatin has dissolved and the gummies will set evenly.
- As soon as the gel has liquefied, poor gelatin juice mixture into baking moulds or a flat ceramic baking dish before popping it in the fridge to set. This should take approximately 1hour.
- Once gelatin has set, remove gummies from moulds OR if you have used a baking dish, cut gummies into small bite sized pieces before serving.
As these gummies have a very similar consistency to “jelly” without the additives, preservatives and what not, warm temperatures will cause them to melt. Keep refrigerated for best consistency.
