Healthy Gummy Sweets


Hello Lovelies,






I know I have been neglecting you all recently, but I have had seriously bad 'Bloggers Block'.  After a couple of months of faffing around I have sorted me life out and am back on track!   

All my blogging failures aside, I want to get to the pretty point of this post, which is SUGAR.  

Sugar and I do not have a healthy relationship, I have always been a complete sugar addict, but in January this year I quit the white stuff!  Eliminating the sweet stuff wasn't easy, but the health benefits from doing so was what has kept me going.  


Although I have been very strict with myself, I have had a secret weapon, my healthy gummy sweets.  These yummy morsels contain only three ingredients fruit juice, Grass Fed Organic Gelatin, and raw honey (so hardly a recipe) just a mix of all the good stuff. 

  

A Few Benefits of Gelatin:

Supports skin, hair and nail growth
Balances cortisol levels
Strengthens bones, teeth and cartilage
Healing to the digestive tract
Full of collagen, which helps reduce wrinkles and cellulite
Aids weight regulation
Beneficial for joints
Reduces inflammation
Improves immune function
Can help with hormone balance
As you can see gelatin has its fair share of health benefits, mix it with fresh fruit juice and raw honey and it becomes a complete winner!





As I mentioned above you only need three ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup of grass fed gelatin
  • 1 cup of fresh fruit juice (any will do, so experiment)
  • Raw honey to taste
It is a super easy recipe that I am sure will become a firm favourite.


1. First oil your container or silicon molds, I either use 3 heart molds or a medium baking dish, If you use molds then stick them in the freezer for 5 mins (after setting) as this makes popping them out much easier.

2. You need to work quickly with gelatin so make sure you have everything measured out before hand. 


3. Next mix your juice, gelatin and honey together in a saucepan until it starts to thicken.


4. Once thickened pop your pan on the hob and stir until it just starts to boil, then remove from the heat and pour into oiled molds.


5. Allow to call in the fridge for 2-3 hours.


6. Your gummy sweets can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for 1-2 weeks.


7. Enjoy!
