I’m all about finding fun and tasty ways to eat healthy. Jello was one of my favorite treats growing up. Something about the thick techture that melts in your mouth was so fun for me. I recently discovered how to make jello HEALTHY and learned that making it all natural from home can actually have some pretty awesome health benefits. Using REAL gelatin can help improve your skin, hair, nails, digestion, and joints. This homemade jello is made without the artificial colors and flavorings found in the store bought kind.
Have you ever tried natural grass fed gelatin?
Neither have I until just recently. I never even knew that natural gelatin had so many great health benefits.
“Gelatin is the purified protein derived by the selective hydrolysis of collagen from the skin, the connective tissue and/or bones of animals. Great Lakes Gelatin provides you with the highest types of pure unflavored edible gelatin. It is available in type A (porcine), or type B (bovine or bone).”
You can find this on Amazon, that’s pretty much where I buy everything these days. Amazon prime baby, it’s the way to go.
So the way I prepared this was simply mixed up 3 1/2 cups of the Isagenix hibiscus Want More Energy/Replenish drink (I would recommend 5 scoops of the powder).
Or you can use 100% fruit juice. In a separate bowl, pour 1/2 cup of the juice or WME drink in and mix with 2 T of the gelatin (needs to soak for a few minutes). Then pour 1/2 cup of boiling water into the gelatin/juice mixture. Stir until desolves then add the rest of the juice/WME. After its all mixed together then pour into a greased or lined pan and let chill in the fridge for a couple hours.
After mine was done I cut into squares and placed in tupperware for a quick snack.
I like to top mine with non dairy coconut whip cream and fresh blueberries. So yummy!!!
Coconut Whipped Cream
Just whip up a can of coconut milk that has been chilled for a few hours,
I like to make big batches at a time so I usually use 3 cans. Separate the thick cream from the runny watery part. Use the watery part for smoothies, and save the thick part for your whipped Cream. Use an electric beater and whip the cream with a little bit of honey and vanilla extract. I usually always have some ready made in my fridge cause I LOVE this stuff on everything. Pancakes, fruit, smoothies, yum!!!
So now tell me, what are your thoughts? Have any of you made homemade gummies with this stuff? That’s next on my list. Leave a comment below if you have any tips or tricks to add? I love to hear what other people are doing, especially when it comes to improving the skin.
I just made another batch of jello using 100% grape juice and I added another tablespoon of the gelatin. I have to say that I really liked the texture better. Much more dense.
