My kids number one favourite treat right now is any type of jelly and they’ve rated this, their absolute favourite flavour (for the moment anyway).
Oranges and lemons are in season right now, which means their nutrient levels are at their best. The coconut water adds a little re-hydrating goodness.
Gelatin is made from the bone and connective tissue of animals that has been dried and turned into a powder. I have written about the benefits of gelatin in this post about bone broth. As I’ve always stated, eating whole food sources of any nutrient is best, so consuming bone broth regularly is the most nutrient dense way to consume gelatin. But for a tasty treat, making a batch of jelly is a delicious way to include additional gelatin in your diet.
I only use Changing Habits Organic Gelatin. Because gelatin is derived from animals, I like to know I am consuming the best quality product with the least chemical loading. You can find out more or shop for it here.
500ml (2 cups) freshly squeezed blood orange juice (or regular orange juice)
½ cup of coconut water
1-2 tablespoon of raw honey or rice malt syrup (optional)
Juice of one lemon
3 tablespoons of organic gelatin
Choose rice malt syrup as your sweetener.
Set with agar-agar (I haven’t recipe tested this)
