~Gelatin berry bites~

These four-ingredient gummies are the perfect snack to curb hunger, nourish the gut and strengthen the muscuoskeletal system all at once. Gelatin (from grass-fed animals) is filled with glycine and proline, both super nourishing amino acids. It is a purified source of protein, derived from the collagen of skin, connective tissues and bones of animals. I use Great Lakes Gelatin (Unflavoured Beef Hide), which can be consumed daily by mixing in drinking fluids or making delicious treats as I have.

4 Tbsp Gelatin

1 cup filtered water

1/2 cup blueberries

1/2 lemon juiced

Combine the water and gelatin until blossomed (1 minute) then place over low heat and add lemon juice and berries. Allow the gelatin to dissolve, the berries to soften and the liquid to leach flavour from the berries. Once thickened, pour into a glass tray (lined with baking paper or coconut oil) and allow to cool before placing in the fridge to firm. Slice into bite sized treats and enjoy!
