Feeling the need to detox? Don't be duped by fad cleanses or weight loss drinks. Let's go back to the basics: gelatin! It's why homemade bone broth is so healthy. In that spirit, I present these Detoxifying Herbal Gelatin Gummies -- little gems perfect for busy days when bone broth isn't as convenient. Snack on them after being sick, after the holidays... anytime you need a little extra support. Plus, kids love gummies!

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. In a saucepan, add 1 cup cool water.
  2. Sprinkle gelatin over the water. Let bloom.
  3. Combine 1 cup boiling water and dried herbs in a mug or Mason jar.
  4. Let brew.
  5. Meanwhile, add blueberries and remaining 1 cup of cool water to blender.
  6. Purée until as liquefied as possible.
  7. If desired, strain the berry purée through a fine mesh sieve for a smoother, more "jello"-like texture. Or, use the purée as-is, but keep in mind it may have a somewhat grainy texture depending on how powerful your blender is.
  8. Set aside purée.
  9. Strain brewed tea into the saucepan where the gelatin is.
  10. Heat over low to medium heat, if necessary, to completely dissolve the gelatin.
  11. Once dissolved, immediately remove from heat.
  12. Add lemon juice, sea salt, and blueberry purée. Stir well to combine.
  13. If desired, add sweetener of choice. Allow mixture to cool to lukewarm before adding raw honey.
  14. Taste to adjust sweetness/tartness. Add more sweetener or lemon juice, if desired.
  15. Pour into silicone molds or an 8x8" baking dish.
  16. Refrigerate until firm (about 2 to 3 hours), then cut into squares. If using a mold, you may need to put the bottom of the mold in some hot water first to loosen them before removing.
