  5. Place your jelly mould on a flat surface (I used a silicone jelly mould but you can use a silicone ice cube tray or chocolate mould too.)
  6. Pour your strawberry mixture into a jug and then into the moulds. Place in the fridge for 3 hours to fully set.

Food is one of life’s most powerful medicines. I’m a true testament that once you find the right approach for you, you can overcome poor health through the healing power of food.

I believe the secret to radiant health starts and ends with a healthy gut so my recipes are all grain, gluten and refined sugar free. Most are also dairy-free.

Hi! I am enjoying all yr recipes. They are so good.
Just a quick qn. Could I use Gelatin Thickening Protein powder to make jellies?
Thank you!

Hi Jules, can you give me an example (brand)? Thank you!

Do you think a flavored sugar free gelatin can be used?

Reply

I would personally avoid it. Sugar-free jelly is often made with artificial sweeteners and colouring.

Where can I buy grass fed gelatin?  Do you have a brand you prefer?
Thanks!

Hi Lisa, I like Great Lakes.

This sounds delicious. Can you estimate how much total juice is used from the strawberries?  I would like to experiment with other fruit. Thanks for the recipe.

Hi Linda, about 3/4 cup would be best. You can definitely try other flavours like raspberry, blueberry or blackberry 😊

I have the same question. In step 3 it says to discard the pith, and step 4 it says to add strained strawberries. Did you mean to say to add the rest of the strained strawberry juice? I can't wait to make these today, I have everything I need right here. Thank you for all you do.

Reply

Hi Argia, that is correct, it is the rest of the strawberry juice. I hope you like it! 😊

Reply

These sound delicious.  However, I am a little confused - in step 4 you mentioned adding the rest of the strained strawberries . . . .  should that read ‘strained strawberry juice’?

Reply

Hi Christina, it is indeed the strawberry juice (clarified in step 4). Thank you!

Reply

Possibly a dumb question, but why remove the pith? Would they not set if I were to leave the pith in?

Reply

You can leave it in for extra fibre but it is not needed for the jellies to set - there is plenty of gelatine 😊
