Delicious with so many health benefits to these gummies and I love how easy they are to eat and make. Turmeric has powerful medicinal properties, it enhances athletic performance and reliefs soreness after exercise with it’s anti-inflammatory effects. Also boosts immune function with it’s antioxidants. Gelatin also has many health benefits like it improves digestion, joint and bone pain, increases brain function and helps reduce the signs of aging. I love experimenting with gummies because you can use any fruit or vegetable. My rule is 1 tbsp of gelatin per 1/4 cup liquid or puree. I wish I knew this recipe when my kids where babies.
Healing Carrot Turmeric Gummies
1 large carrot or 2 medium or 3 small one’s peeled and chopped
1 apple cored
1 orange peeled
1 lemon squeezed
1/2 inch of fresh turmeric
1/2 inch of fresh ginger
1 or 2 tbsp of honey or maple syrup
8 tbsp Gelatin
In blender puree carrots, apple, orange, lemon juice, turmeric and ginger. Should measure to 2 cups. Heat in a pot for a minute and add honey and gelatin stirring inbetween Tbsp’s. Boil for 3 minutes and pour into silicone moulds. Place in freezer or fridge for 30 minutes and pop out of moulds and store in the fridge for a week.
Make these gummies your own with your favorite ingredients and it’s like having snackable smoothie to go. Silicone muffin moulds from Ikea are a very handy tool. I use them for making peanut butter cups and many other recipes.
