You all know by now the amazing health benefits of gelatin, but just in case, here’s a reminder:
Gelatin improves skin health, is high in protein and aids digestive function. It eases joint pain and helps to control blood sugar. Gelatin can assists in maintaining healthy bones. There’s more, but that should do it for now.
There are many ways to increase your daily intake of gelatin, but none as fun and tasty as these adorable little gummy bears.
Please make note of two things though. First, check that the fruit tea you are using has no added sugars. They can be sneaky like that and you may be eating hidden carbs without even knowing.
Also, just because these work out as no sugar, no carbs doesn’t mean that you can go crazy eating them. Snacking is snacking and overdoing it on a healthy snack may lead to making unwise choices.
These jellies are 100% protein so keep that in mind. Eating the whole batch in one sitting (trust me, it's easier than you think would likely throw you over your macros. Don't get me wrong, sufficient protein will help you stay full for longer, especially if your goal is to lose weight. But protein is not a particularly efficient fuel source and a significant excess of protein may raise your insulin levels and stall your progress.
This is a sweetener-free treat but you can add your favorite low-carb sweeteners such as stevia or powdered erythritol. Enjoy!
- This ratio of liquid ingredients to gelatin will result in very firm gummies. You can use up to 1/2 cup more liquid ingredients for chewy gummies.
- If you're making homemade gummies for the first time, make sure to check this guide to avoid common mistakes.
- You can use any fruit tea or a combination of more flavours like I did. Apart from fruit tea, you can use herbal tea such as hibiscus, mint or ginger, and your favourite low-carb sweetener.
