A patient asked me this week for a healthy alternative to jelly. I suggested she try 'gummies' made with gut healing gelatin. This recipe is based on the 'I quit sugar' program.
3 1/2 tablespoons gelatin
1 cup almond milk
1 cup cashew butter
2 teaspoons turmeric, ground
1 teaspoon cinnamon, ground
1/2 teaspoon vanilla powder
1 teaspoon maca powder
1/4 cup rice malt syrup.
1 pinch sea salt
1. Dissolve the gelatin in 1/3 cup of cold water and let it sit for 5 minutes until it has become gel-like.
2. Heat the almond milk, cashew butter, turmeric, cinnamon, vanilla, maca, rice malt syrup and sea salt in a saucepan until almost boiling. Remove from the heat and stir in the gelatin until it has dissolved.
3. Pour into a 10x15cm glass or plastic container. Refrigerate for 1 hour, then cut into squares.
4. Store in the fridge in an airtight container for up to a week.
