I’ve always been a bit of a fruit snack addict.
Now that I’m older, my teeth cannot handle all the sticky sugar (and my body can’t handle the junk).
A good friend made a batch of these in the summer and they totally blew my mind. So simple, and so tasty.
I used to use the standard Knox gelatin, but I recently switched to Green Lakes brand (which is a high quality gelatin made from grass-fed animals). I made the switch because I wanted to get the full benefit that gelatin has to offer, without any added junk (or even low quality ingredients).
Gelatin has NUMEROUS health benefits (I highly recommend a quick Google search on the matter); joint health, collagen boosting, immunity boosting, etc.
If you want gelatin, skip the yucky stuff that’s in Jell-O, and just make your own using fruit and juice!
Here’s What You’ll Need:
-1 cup of juice (I use pomegranate juice)
-3 cups of frozen berries
-5-6 tablespoons of gelatin (I use Green Lakes gelatin)
-coconut oil for greasing your dish/mold
In a medium saucepan, add the juice and berries. Heat for several minutes; until the berries soften. Add to a blender and purée until mixture is a smooth consistency. Add the powdered gelatin and blend for 15-30 seconds until it is fully incorporated in the fruit purée. Pour into greased dish and let chill in the fridge for 1-2 hours. Once the gel has set, cut into pieces or with a shaped cutter. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.
