Healthy Green Juice Gummies


Healthy Green Juice Gummies

Gummies are the perfect snack for kids and adults alike. However, most store-bought gummies contain refined sugars like glucose syrup, sugar, dextrose or artificial flavors and colors, which doesn’t make them the healthiest option.
Even though they claim to be fruit-flavored, there’s very little – if any at all – actual fruit in them. Gummy candies are filled with unhealthy ingredients with a list on the label that looks like this – sugar, sugar, corn syrup, sugar, red 40, blue 1, and yellow 5.
Homemade gummies can be made with real vegetables, protein-rich gelatin and no refined sugar! Great for picky eater children or adults that resist eating vegetables.  Cooked, pureed greens, carrot, pumpkin, broccoli and so on are perfect for making gummies. You can even use greens powder or blend up chia, hemp, flax seeds too and incorporate into a gummy.
As with the classic homemade fruit gummies, the sky is the limit when deciding what shape to make these vegetable gummies. You can use different fun shapes or gummy bear molds. If you don’t have any silicone molds, you simply pour the mixture into a pan and cut them into squares when they have firmed.
Loaded with nutrients and so much better for you than store-bought. A great option for an easy and healthy all-natural snack with protein and no artificial junk in them! Easy to make and fun to eat!
 As well as the healthy vegetables there is also a health boost from gelatin.
Gelatin makes up almost one-third of all the protein in our bodies and not having enough affects our joints, our skin and our gastro system.
Gelatin is a colorless and tasteless protein made from hydrolyzed collagen, which means it is part of the broken-down collagen. It provides important amino acids which are the building blocks of protein.
Gelatin also has at on health benefits – supporting digestive and gut health, maintaining strong bones, helping with joint pain, strengthening tendons, improving skin health, and can even help improve sleep.
Gelatin when cooled, becomes a sticky adhesive like glue and gels together. Which is how we can make homemade gummies from it.
Gelatin contains amino acids that helps to seal leaky gut, feeds the good bacteria in your intestinal tract and can improve sleep, reduce inflammation, reduce sugar cravings and can help with joint pain.
The gelatinous quality is also great for our bodies because it helps build strong connective tissues and cartilage and gives parts of our bodies some elasticity.
Its time to take control of the ingredients in your gummies and here is a basic recipe to get you started.
