Healthy Gummy Men

Did you know the collagen molecule is too large to penetrate the skin when applied topically? That's why expensive collagen creams don't hold a candle to edible gelatin. I like whipping up a batch of these healthy gummy men- they are super nutritious, a snap to make and great to eat on-the-go. Bonus... kids love them!⠀

3 cups all-natural, chilled juice⠀
1/2 cup grass-fed gelatin protein powder (make sure it's not cold water soluble)⠀
1/4 cup raw honey or 60 drops stevia⠀

How to:⠀
Combine the juice and gelatin in a small saucepan, and allow the mixture to sit for a few minutes until the gelatin "blooms" or expands. Then, warm over medium-low heat until the gelatin has completely dissolved. Allow to cool slightly, then add your honey. Stir until blended and taste for sweetness (the flavors will mellow once set, so it's okay if it tastes too sweet). ⠀
Next, transfer the mixture to a spouted measuring cup then into a silicone mold. Any design will do. Place the mold in the fridge for at least one hour, or in the freezer for 10 minutes. Recipe makes approx. 50 mini gummi men (or small design).⠀
