The Good

Servings: Varies with moulds • Cook time: 10 minutes

Gelatin is a complete protein source, which provides essential amino acids necessary for tissue building and repair within multiple areas of the body. Regular consumption of gelatin may help ease digestive complaints, repair the gut lining, improve blood sugar regulation, strengthen joints and bones and improve the overall health of hair, skin and nails. Kids won’t even notice it’s a superfood, sugar-free gummy!



  • 8 teaspoons of grass fed gelatin (we use nutra organics)

  • 200mLs fruit juice (we love apple or pineapple)

  • A dash of maple syrup if it needs extra sweetness


  1. In a small saucepan combine all ingredients. Let mixture sit for a couple of minutes to allow the gelatin to soften and combine with the liquid.

  2. Turn heat on low and stir continuously until all ingredients are well combined and any lumps of gelatin have dissolved. Don’t let mixture boil.

  3. Poor mixture into moulds of your choice (we use gummy bears and hearts) or you can use an ice cube tray. Pop in the fridge till set (usually about half an hour). You can keep them in the fridge for up to a week.


Fresh fruit juice is best or ensure that store bought juices are from 100% pressed fruit and not from concentrate with added sugars.
