These little cuties were made with coconut milk and gelatin that I happened to have in my refrigerator. I was craving something a little sweet so I decided to make these little yoga gummies for myself and my daughter. This is a fun and easy activity to do with your son or daughter and enjoy snacking on together without the guilt.
If you haven’t heard gummies that you buy in the stores are loaded with refined and processed sugars and food dyes. Most of the dyes that are used in the US are banned in other countries!
If you haven’t heard about the latest news on coconut milk, it is all the rave right now. Coconuts are rich in fiber, vitamins C,E, B1, B3, B5 and B6 and minerals including iron, selenium, sodium, calcium, magnesium and phosphorous.
Plus the gelatin in these gummies are an added bonus because it provides restorative nutrients for your body. Gelatin will:
+improve gut health and digestion
+improve skin elasticity because it contains collagen
+reduce inflammation and joint mobility
+contains 18 essential amino acids that are needed for protein synthesis in our bodies.
I used organic coconut milk, organic gelatin and organic goji powder and/or organic strawberry powder. You can play around with the fruit powder and superfood powders. I wanted to add matcha to some of the gummies but my daughter rejected that option. I am trying to convert her to a matcha drinker but it is certainly an acquired taste with a whole. You could also try turmeric powder, spirulina or add pureed fresh fruit for a little added flavor
- 1 15 ounce canned organic coconut milk
- 2 tablespoons gelatin
- ⅓ teaspoon gelatin
- optional powders: cherry, strawberry, turmeric, spirulina, matcha
- optional stevia, maple syrup or honey
- Using a small pot, heat coconut milk on low heat to a boil, remove from heat and quickly whisk in 1 tablespoon of gelatin at a time to avoid clumping.
- Stir in the vanilla, stevia as an option, and pour this mixture into individual bowls with colored fruits/superfood powders. Whisk the gummy mixture in with the powders to avoid clumping.
- Use the gummy droppers to pout the colored mixtures into the molds.
- Chill in the fridge for up to 2 hours or more.
- Store in an airtight glass container for 1-2 weeks.
