Yum. Key Lime Gummies! I’m pretty sure it’s obvious how much I love homemade gummies …. Vitamin C Gummies, Carrot Ginger Gummies… these Key Lime Gummies are another of my favorite flavors. They are a mouthful of flavor. The citrus of the lime, zippy and bright, is balanced with the creamy, mellowness of the coconut milk. And, as they are made with grass-fed gelatin, with its amazing gut healing support, these gummies are a health food disguised as a fun treat.
– more on grass-fed beef gelatin –
Beef gelatin has an amino acid profile very similar to collagen peptides. It provides all the same benefits as collagen peptides and has the added benefit of taking longer to digest. This added time gives it greater opportunity to heal gut-permeability, coat the small intestine and help to ease digestive symptoms such as bloating, gas, pain, and inflammation. Beef gelatin is excellent to include in autoimmune protocol (AIP) and gut healing diets (GAPS). It moves through the digestive system a little further before being completely absorbed and may help encourage proper digestion of certain foods.
– blooming your gelatin- Beef gelatin is perfect for making gummies, for thickening soups and gravies, and can replace eggs in baking. Gelatin must be primed and works best when it is first bloomed. Blooming is a simple process that helps to prepare the gelatin for mixing into food. You simply soak the gelatin in room temperature liquid for 3-5 minutes to bloom, or plump up, the gelatin granules. Once the gelatin has bloomed you warm it slightly, on the stove or add hot liquid, to completely dissolve the granules. Once cooled or chilled, it sets up perfectly with a jello-like consistency.
– my favorite gelatin – Vital Proteins Beef Gelatin is my absolute favorite gelatin. It’s pasture-raised, grass-fed, with no artificial flavors or fillers. It’s the highest quality I’ve tried (and I’ve tried lots). Vital Proteins is easy to shop for, you can get it shipped straight to you, free of shipping charges and they offer a discount when you sign-up for their easy auto-delivery program (which I use so my cupboard is never bare).
