Coconut Gummies & Blueberry Gummies!

soooooo I've decided to do something about my gut health - nothing extreme but just add goodness back into my diet that will assist my 'funny tummy' (& by funny I mean not processing food the way it should & me lacking in energy :))

It's good to bring the children along for the ride too I reckon so, as you know my theory on encouraging them to eat 'healthier' foods is by mimicking - what better way to do this than by making 'jellies' in fun shapes!

I've sat on the sidelines for a while now & was really excited when I realised how healthy it is for us, how yummy it tasted, how EASY it was to make and how much the children ACTUALLY liked it!!! I have to be honest - the hardest thing was remembering to buy gelatin! :)

MAKES: 20 walnut sized shapes(each flavour)

TIME: 10-15 mins            SET: 2 hrs      

INGREDIENTS:BLUEBERRY GUMMIE FISH!

  • 3 tbs        @greatlakesgeletin beef gelatin(unflavoured which I sourced from @govitaCairns
  • 1 tsp         fresh nub of ginger
  • 1 1/2 cup  frozen or fresh blueberries
  • 1/3 cup    cool water

METHOD:

  1. Dissolve gelatin in cool water - set aside - it will become globules, it's ok the warm berries will dissolve it
  2. Warm blueberries and ginger on the stove gently- make sure this doesn't boil or get too hot (your gelatin will NOT work if it becomes to hot)
  3. Place warm berry mix into a blender & blitz until smooth
  4. Add gelatin mix to the blueberries and blitz until smooth
  5. Pour into silicon molds 
  6. NOTE: if you don't have molds, easy enough to just lightly oil a plastic container and pour in mix to set
  7. Place in the fridge to set for 2 hrs
  8. Turn out & keep in airtight container
