Lemonade Gummy Fruit Snacks

Lemonade Gummies | OUR NOURISHING ROOTS #kids #snacks #gelatin #grassfed

When I was on GAPS, I drank a lot of bone broth full of natural gelatin and soothing goodness.  And now that I don’t drink it quite as often, I try to incorporate as much grass-fed gelatin into my family’s diet as possible.  I was really glad to find that there is a powdered grass-fed gelatin from a brand I trust here.  It is a gelatin that is very easy to absorb, so all the nutrients are truly usable by your body.

And the best way to take this gelatin?  In a fruit snack of course!  I have seen a few recipes I really like, like these coconut pineapple gummies.  But ever since summer hit I have been dying to try and make lemonade gummies with grass-fed gelatin.  So yummy, and so healthy!  I have been making my honey-sweetened lemonade pretty regularly again, and so I tried it, and the result was glorious.

The reason I think gelatin is so important, is because it was a large part of our traditional diet.  These days we tend not to eat as many gelatin-rich foods like bone broth, and I believe that our joints and bodies suffer as a result.  I do try and have bone broth several times a week, using it as a soup base, a quick warm drink (with salt and cream), or as a starting point for sauces (like with roast duck and pan gravy!).

But I think that even though I try to get gelatin incorporated in those foods, it’s still probably not enough for my growing boys, or for my aging joints!  And so I am now motivated to make a batch of these fruit snacks once a week or so.  Plus, they are great for sending as a dessert in school lunches!

I also love that gelatin powder is the best protein powder around.  Instead of worrying about choosing which protein powder will be the cleanest and least offensive at the health food store, gelatin powder is just one ingredient: gelatin.  It’s the best choice because the protein is so easily digested, and you get all the other benefits as well from the naturally occurring

    I think my daughter will be forever grateful to you for posting this recipe. She really misses her (store bought) gummy treats, and she gets growing pains, which I think more gelatin will really help.
