My new video “How To Make Gelatin Rich Jello” is now available.
When traditional cultures butchered meat for food they used the entire animal, including the organs and the bones. These days we only eat the muscle meat. It’s neater and can be packed up nice and pretty for the grocery store. However, true healthy eating for nourishment and vitality goes deeper and beyond convenience. That being said we can utilize some current day hacks to bring these healing foods back into our lives! I take collagen peptides daily in my drinks. You can buy collagen peptides from clean, grassfed, pasture raised beef in powder form. Collagen peptides have all the benefits of gelatin but can dissolve in cold drinks. I cover the benefits of gelatin and collagen in my video “How To Make Bone Broth“.
If you want to get a little more creative and use gelatin, one of my favorite ways to use it is to make jello! Jello is a familiar food of our childhood and very yummy indeed.
In this recipe you will need 2 cups of liquid total. I prefer to use cold pressed or fresh pressed juice, always organic. Any juice will do, the possibilities are endless! If you want your jello a little sweeter feel free to add honey or stevia.
1/4 cup water
1 3/4 cups organic juice
2 Tbs grassfed gelatin
2 Tbs honey
- Add 2 tbs gelatin to 1/4 cup water and set aside to soak
- Heat your 1 3/4 cup of juice to just before boiling
- Add your honey and the soaked gelatin/water mixture
- Remove from heat and whisk to combine
- Pour in a heat proof container and let set overnight in the refrigerator
You can add fresh sliced fruit to the container before adding the liquid jello, and serve with fresh whipped cream to make a dessert with healthy fats!
Hope you enjoy and please comment with pictures if you do make your jello!
