Healthy Gummies

Molly's Healthy Gummies

Ingredients

  • 1 cup liquid * (see notes below)
  • 4 tablespoons gelatin
  • honey to taste

Directions

  • In a saucepan, stir the honey into the liquid, then mix gelatin in.
  • Leave it sit for 5 minutes
  • Cook on medium heat for 5 mins and stir all the time. It wont come to a full boil, but it might simmer a bit. This is ok.
  • Pour into silicon moulds
  • Place in freezer for a maximum of 20 minutes. Don’t allow it to freeze.
  • Turn out of moulds
  • Store in container in the fridge. You can store in the cupboard. Just ensure that the gummies are completely dry before storing.

Note 1:  Using the 4 tablespoons of gelatin makes a nice firm gummy. You can make them softer by using less. I have made them with 2 tablespoons, also with 3 tablespoons of the gelatin. All turned out perfectly. So do experiment and see which you like best.

Note 2: 1 cup of liquid can be anything you want. My favourite for winter is lemon juice and ginger, or elderberry & echinacea syrup, and my favourite of all for a delicious treat and to boost my immune system, is using my immune boost chi tea as the liquid.  It is delicious!


Healthy Eating Tips

It isn’t always easy to maintain a healthy and balanced eating program. We lead busy lives and often meal times get pushed to the back of our minds. Here are a few tips that may help you.

Protein

It is important to include protein in each main meal. Meat, chicken, fish, seafood, legumes, eggs and dairy products. Remember if you combine Chick peas and brown rice you get a complete protein comparable to meat or dairy foods.

Vegetables

3 to 4 cups of fresh vegetables each day is recommended for good health, and vibrant energy. Try to keep the heavier starchy vegetable to one or two serves a day. Read More
