One of the most common symptoms that presents to me in Naturopath clinic are the struggle with constant sweet cravings. Although I will always endeavour to find the underlying cause, whether it’s investigating for imbalanced micro biome, testing for hormone imbalances and /or overcoming nutritional deficiencies, it’s helpful to have healthy options to offer in place of that sugar-filled block of chocolate or packet of lollies.
Introducing my Lemon Gummies- perfect for overcoming your choccie cravings by changing that taste in your mouth after meals, providing vitamin C for your immune system and gelatin for supporting your gut health. Plus they’re yummy enough to please even the little people in your home!
WHAT YOU’LL NEED:
1 1/2 cups fresh lemon or apple juice
3.5 tbsp gelatine. I use this organic brand.
½ tbsp raw honey (optional)
4 drops doTERRA Lime Essential Oil (for an adults only batch)
Shaped ice cube trays, or moulds
What you’ll need to do:
Add the juice into a small saucepan.
Sprinkle over the gelatin and allow it soak up all the juice before starting to whisk.
Continue to stir the gelatin and juice over medium heat and the gelatin is well dissolved (don’t boil).
If using the rice malt syrup or honey, add to saucepan with Lime essential oil and mix in.
Pour the mixture into shaped ice cubed trays and set in the fridge for 3 hours.
They can be stored in the fridge to enjoy for up to 2 weeks.
