Strawberry Gut Gummy Recipe

Show your gut some love this month and try these Strawberry Gut Gummies! 

 

Gelatin helps to restore gut lining, enhance absorption of nutrients and has anti-inflammatory properties. Making gelatin gummies is a great way to give your gut a little extra love! — Plus they are easy to make and store in the fridge for a quick snack on the go.

 

Ingredients

  • 3 1/2 tbsp grass-fed gelatin powder (Try Great Lakes Unflavored Gelatin!)

  • 1 cup organic strawberries, roughly chopped

  • 1 tsp raw honey

 

Directions

Dissolve gelatin in 1/3 cup cold water, and leave sit for 5 minutes until gel-like

 

Heat strawberries and honey in a sauce pan until fruit has softened

 

Remove strawberries from the heat and puree with an immersion blender or pour into a heat-safe blender and blend until smooth — return strawberry puree back into the sauce pan and stir in gelatin until it dissolves

 

Pour into glass dish or silicone mold (we used a heart-shaped mold!) and place into the fridge for 1 hour or until gelatin has fully set. Cut gelatin into squares or pop our of molds and enjoy!

 

Store in an air-tight container for up to 1 week!
