These gummies are seriously easy to make. Think back to making jelly as a child but only preservative, colouring and crap free! A great lunchbox addition for kids too!

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 cups strawberries
  • 2 lemons (juiced)
  • 1 tbsp acai powder
  • 2 tbsp gelatin
  • 1/4 tsp monk fruit extract
  • 2 cups filtered water

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Combine water with gelatin and set aside to 'bloom'. It will turn into a jelly like consistency.
  • Add strawberries, lemon juice and monk fruit to a high speed blender with any extra add ins like acai powder and blend until smooth.
  • Pour the strawberry mixture into a saucepan and gently stir over a low heat.
  • Add gelatin to the saucepan and continue stirring until it dissolves.
  • Once the gelatin has dissolved, remove the saucepan from the heat and allow to cool for approximately 10 minutes before pouring into moulds.
  • Set in the frige for 3-4 hours, remove from the moulds and store in the fridge for one week or the freezer for a couple of months.

NOTES

  • You can replace monk fruit sweetener with 2 tbsp maple syrup or honey.
  • Feel free to replace the lemon juice with lime juice for strawberry daquiri vibes!
  • You can substitute water for coconut water or kombucha.
  • Additional add ins you might want to add include:
    • probiotic capsules (just open the caps and pour the powder in to the blender)
    • liver capsules (an absolute powerhouse of nutrients)
    • Vitamin C or kakadu plum powder
