Three Easy Gelatin Recipes

Maybe you read up on our article on the 5 Health Benefits of Gelatin and you’re ready to start adding it into the daily routine. While you can blend it into your drinks or whizz it up with your morning smoothie, you can also turn it into gummy candies. All you need are a few simple ingredients and candy molds to get started. The flavor options are endless, and you can essentially mix up any fruit and any liquid to create whatever sounds good to you. If you need a hand getting started, here are three simple, tasty gelatin recipes that are good and even better for you.

 

1. Matcha Latte Gummies

Matcha is a healthy caffeine boost or replacement to coffee.

 

Finally, a latte you don’t even have to drink! This recipe has a matcha base. If you’re not familiar with the vibrant, green powder, it’s just a finely ground powder of green tea. Since it’s a form of whole leaves, it contains chlorophyll like other leafy greens. It’s also got a little bit of caffeine, so these are the perfect focus and energy boost. It has a distinctive, “grassy” taste. Using more honey will make the final product sweeter, while using more matcha will make the final product taste “grassier.” Balance one out with the other – you should use a total of 5 tablespoons, but you can choose your ratio depending on preference.

Ingredients:

Instructions:

  1. Set out candy molds so they’re ready to be used. The process goes quickly!
  2. Bring coconut milk to a simmer on the stove on medium heat.
  3. Whisk in matcha and honey until they’re evenly dispersed throughout the liquid.
  4. Whisk in the gelatin slowly, one tablespoon at a time. If it clumps too much while whisking it in, you can blend the final product before pouring the liquid into molds.
  5. Pour liquid into molds and refrigerate for 1-2 hours until set. Enjoy.

2. Peach-Cherry Kombucha Gummies

Just three ingredients make up this gut-healthy gummy recipe.

 

This sour and sweet treat is reminiscent of Sour Patch Kids, so these are a great substitute to keep handy if you’re missing candy. A base of kombucha adds a little tang while the peach makes it sweet and creamy. Kombucha is a fermented food loaded with good bacteria and probiotics for a healthy gut. Be careful during the heating process as you don’t want the liquid to boil – heat can kill off bacteria which will make these little treats just a little less healthy. If you use ripe peaches, these won’t need any additional sweetener, but you can add a touch of honey if your little heart desires!

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 C Great Lakes Gelatin
  • 1 C cherry (or your flavor of choice) kombucha
  • 2 small-medium peaches

Instructions:

  1. Blend peaches and kombucha into liquid with no chunks remaining.
  2. Bring the mixture to a light simmer on medium heat.
  3. Whisk in gelatin one tablespoon at a time until evenly dispersed. If the gelatin becomes clumpy, you can blend the liquid again after it’s cooled down a bit.
  4. Pour the mixture into candy molds. Refrigerate 1-2 hours until set.

3. Mango Coconut “Lassi” Fat Bombs

Boost the fat with double the coconut in these sweet treats.

 

Mango Lassi is a Thai-inspired recipe that uses mango, yogurt, milk, and sugar for a sweet, creamy dessert. Consider these a big bowl of that in bite-size form and a LOT better for you. Sweet mango will lend its natural sweetness, so additional honey is optional. Use full-fat coconut milk and coconut oil to make “fat-bomb” gummies. These are great to reach for in lieu of a carb-y afternoon snack because they’ll promote satiety with their healthy fat content.

Ingredients:

Instructions:

  1. Blend mango until smooth. You can choose to blend with the coconut milk to make it easier.
  2. Bring coconut milk and mango mixture to a simmer on medium heat.
  3. Stir in coconut oil.
  4. Add in sweetener if you’re using any. The mango will make these just-sweet-enough.
  5. Whisk in gelatin one tablespoon at a time. You can choose to blend again when the liquid has cooled to more evenly disperse it throughout.
  6. Pour into candy molds and refrigerate for 1-2 hours until set.
