Gut Healing Jellies

My kids love these! I started making these when I was exploring ways to get goodness into my boys without them knowing (Alice Nicholls would call this the smug mumma movement). I have tried many different combinations of juice, water, coconut and sweetener and found that this is a great base recipe for you to mix up! 

Juice: I find the juice adds the sweetness that my kids crave in a 'lolly'. I often use Apple Nudie Juice but you can use any type of juice that your kids love. If you have a juicer you can always made your own juice with a combination of fruit that your kids love. Just remember whatever bits are in the juice will be in the jelly so if you want a smooth consistency you will want a 'no bits' juice. 

Water: I just use plain filtered water but you could also use coconut water or a different liquid in the same quantity. 

Sweetener: I love using am organic raw honey in my jellies but you could also use maple syrup, rice malt syrup, coconut syrup (nectar) or other sweetener of choice. Adjust the amount to suit the taste buds of your consumer. You may like to start high and gradually drop it down each batch you go. You can also leave this out if you are using a sweeter juice or coconut water. 

Gelatin: gelatin is a powerhouse when it comes to protecting the gut and improving your gut health. It is SUPER important to purchase a really high quality grass fed organic gelatin. I use nutra organics gelatin which you can purchase at most health food stores around Australia. 

Essential Oils: I love to add 5 drops of lemon or orange but you could also use Tangerine, Red Mandarin, Grapefruit, Peppermint or Lavender. I will only ever suggest you use doTERRA essential oils. Do not add essential oils unless you are certain they are food grade and safe to internalise.

The best part of this recipe is that you just put it all together heat it up and pour into moulds! I found these cute lego moulds but if you don't have any moulds you can also pour it into a tray lined with baking paper or into a non stick pan then just slice it up once set. 

This recipe makes a lot of Jellies!! (The 4 lego trays plus a small lined pot) I want them to last a few weeks so i'm not consistently making them. You can halve the recipe if you want less. Try experimenting with different flavours to see what your kids like best! Or just keep them for yourself!

Ingredients 

  • 350g juice of choice 
  • 350g filtered water 
  • 50g honey (or other sweetener depending on taste, remember if you use a fruit juice it will already be quite sweet) 
  • 70g grass fed gelatin (very important to have a good quality gelatin)  recipes 
  • 5 drops of essential oil of choice (lemon, wild orange, grapefruit) (optional) 

Thermomix Method 

  1. Add all ingredients to thermomix jug and mix 6min 50deg speed 2
  2. Pour into silicon moulds, a tray lined with baking paper or a pan 
  3. Let set in the fridge for 2 hours or until firm 
  4. Remove from moulds or cut up and store in an airtight container in the fridge 

Stovetop Method 

  1. Add all ingredients to pot and stir over a medium heat until all the gelatin has dissolved 
  2. Pour into silicon moulds, a tray lined with baking paper or a pan 
  3. Let set in the fridge for 2 hours or until firm 
  4. Remove from moulds or cut up and store in an airtight container in the fridge 

*This will last for weeks in the fridge. You can leave them out but the heat will make them go soft. We prefer them in the fridge so they stay firm in lunchboxes during the day.

Enjoy!
