Berry & Lemon Gummy Snacks

Gelatin GummyAre you trying to get more gelatin into your life? Well, then look no further as these are super easy to make and delicious as well! This is a variation of Balanced Bites’ recipe.

Ingredients:

  • 1 2/3 cup of fresh or thawed from frozen strawberries, blueberries or berry blend
  • 1 1/3 cup of freshly squeezed lemon juice (or organic lemon juice from Costco)
  • 1/3 cup of water
  • Zest from lemons as desired (unless you use the Costco lemon juice then go without)
  • 1 tablespoon of maple syrup (optional) or stevia to taste
  • 6 tablespoons grass-fed gelatin
  • 1-2 scoops of Dynamic Greens Pink Lemonade or Strawberry Kiwi (this gives a deeper and rounded flavor plus 20+ servings of fruits and veggies)

Preparation

  • In a blender, combine the berries, lemon juice and Dynamic Greens until no visible skin or large pieces of berries appear.
  • In a small pot over medium-low heat, whisk the berry lemon mixture with the lemon zest, maple syrup, and gelatin together vigorously until the gelatin is well dissolved and the mixture becomes a nice slurry. (Note: If you don’t whisk enough, you may get flakes of white gelatin or you can combine some of the water warmed up with the gelatin to let it bloom before adding)
  • Pour the mixture into a glass or ceramic dish, preferably 9×12″ or so. The smaller the pan, the thicker your gummies will be. For thinner gummies (to cut into “worms,” for example), use a larger pan.
