Blueberry Kombucha Gummies

If you ask my 'eldest' daughter (older by 2 mins) what her favourite food is, her answer will inevitably be 1. tomatoes, 2. blueberries and 3. GUMMIES! 

I only just started to experiment with gummies in March, but I am already on batch #5 because  the girls devour them even when they are still frozen from setting in the freezer! I have also played with different flavouring options, including essential oils but this is the one I am enjoying most at the moment. 

Q: What makes gummies 'gummy?' 

A: Natural, organic, grass-fed gelatine! 

What is gelatine? High quality gelatine comes from the protein collagen in pasture raised cows. It naturally boosts collagen production and aids in digestion, heals and seals the gut lining, strengthens bones, joints and muscle tissue, boosts metabolism and immunity and promotes firmer, glowing skin. 

How gelatine supports health & wellbeing.

Specifically, gelatine supports gut health, which as you may know is a topic close to my heart. Everyday factors in life contribute to the damage of out gut and upset the sensitive bacterial balanace of your microbiome. Even if you don't have any obvious gastrointestinal distress, gelatine can be an invaluable way to support vibrant health and support a robust immune system. 

Gelatine provides the basic building blocks like glycine to restore and repair the gut lining, encourage the growth of good bacteria to increase overall wellbeing.

Make sure you source legit gelatine, free from additives and fillers

Please note I am NOT talking about the flavoured jelly (my fellow Aussies will know what I mean when I mention "aeroplanes" here). Nor gelatine you find in the baking isle of the supermarket - those are full of starches and other fillers/preservatives which will have the exact opposite effect.

The brand of gelatine I have personally used to create the gummies you see pictured here and every batch over the past month is NutraOrganics Natural Australian grass fed gelatine (unflavoured). I purchased a 250g bag from the health food store for around $12, which is only just running low now so it makes these super cheap to make. 

Plus if you make your own kombucha at home (I used this recipe!) then a batch of gummies will cost you only a couple of dollars - cheaper than your average bag of lollies and infinitely better for you!

Prep Time10 minsCategory, , , ,

Ingredients:

 5 tbsp natural organic, grass fed australian gelatine
 400 ml Blueberry kombucha (see recipe link above)
 10 drops liquid stevia (steviol glycosides).. OPTIONAL

Instructions:

1

'Bloom' your gelatine by adding 5 scoops/tablespoons to 1/2 cup of filtered water and stirring thoroughly.

2

In a small saucepan, combine the kombucha (strained) and gelatine over medium heat. Add your stevia if you're using it and stir continuously until the gelatine has completely dissolved.

3

Fizzy Kombucha may leave a thick foam at the top of your brew. Leave this for a few minutes to allow this to settle before spooning into your silicon chocolate moulds.

4

Put the chocolate mould/s into the freezer to set, then remove and pop all gummies out while still frozen. Store in a glass jar in the fridge for up to 2 weeks - though I guarantee they won't last that long!
