Gut Healing Blueberry Gummies
Not into drinking bone broth every single day? Are you looking to get more gelatin into your diet but don’t like making bone broth or like the taste? I do still think you should be making broth, but gummies are a great way to get in some gut-healing nutrients. Plus they are like a little dessert! Gelatin contains two amino acids that are typically lacking in our diets, glycine and proline. Glycine in particular is wonderful important for healthy skin, nails, hair, as well as connective tissue. The brand I recommend and surely love is Vital Proteins.
1 cup blueberries
3/4 cup water
Blend in blender together to make a puree
Add to saucepan
1.5 cups water (you could also use 3/4c lemon juice and 3/4c water)
1/4 cup beef gelatin
2T clover honey (SIBO approved)
Place water and blueberries in a blender and blend on high until completely mixed. Pour into a saucepan.
Add the honey, water and gelatin and whisk together. Turn the heat on low, and continue to whisk the mixture for 5-10 minutes, until it begins to boil and everything is incorporated. Take off the heat.
Pour into an 8x8 baking dish. Set in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour to firm up.
If you used a small baking dish as a receptacle, cut into bite-size squares. You could also create some fun molds if you choose!
