A couple of weeks ago I wrote a post on the health benefits of grass-fed gelatin. This week, I am sharing an easy recipe that the whole family will love: Coconut Mango Gummy Treats.
I’ve been making several of the recipes posted on-line lately for healthy fruit gummy treats, and the family has been loving them. They are so easy to make and are a great way to get gelatin into your diet.
Not only is the gelatin good for our skin, nails, hair, and teeth, it also supports and heals our digestive tracts. This is good for me as I have suffered from digestive issues, and little one has had some skin issues we are working on healing.
I’m not a big fan of taking tons of supplements, but grass fed gelatin is something that I try to get into my diet EVERY day.
I have the cutest little silicone molds that use to make my gummy snacks, but you can just pour the mixture into a glass baking dish and cut into squares once it has set. You can add more honey if you want a sweeter treat, but we find that they are good with minimal added sweetener.
And like I mentioned in the previous post: quality matters. Please be sure to use gelatin powder from a grass fed source. This is not the gelatin for JELLO that you buy at the store that can be loaded with artificial flavors and sweeteners.
- Peal ripe mango and slice off all of the fruit from the pit. Puree mango pieces with immersion blender or small food processor. Set aside
- Combine coconut water and lemon juice in small pan and gently heat the mixture until it is just warm to the touch. Remove from heat
- Add gelatin powder 1 TBS at a time and whisk to thoroughly combine (If you notice clumping, gently heat mixture again)
- Add mango puree to gelatin mixture and whisk to combine
- Pour mixture into silicone molds or glass baking dish (no need to grease it)
- Place in fridge for at least 2 hours to allow to set
- Remove from molds or cut into desired pieces
- Enjoy!! (store any leftovers in fridge. Only good for 2-3 days as the coconut water spoils quickly)
