If you’re not sure what to do with that jar of unflavored gelatin, we have some fun ideas for you.
There are few Paleo foods that a) mimic candy, b) are totally kid-friendly, and c) offer major health and wellness benefits. These healthy gummy recipes fit the bill!
From tart flavors like pomegranate and cherry, to sour lemon and berry, to ultra-sweet ripe melon, the humble gummy is ever versatile. The common denominator in all Paleo gummies is grass-fed gelatin, which is an excellent source of protein and collagen – the stuff that makes for strong hair, skin, and nails.

Gummies are also a great way to get in your vitamins. Swap your supplements for fun-shaped treats – think wobbly apple cider vinegar shots, sleep-promoting tart cherry treats, or flu-busting turmeric squares. To make gummies for the kids, set your gelatin mixture in fun molds to make healthy gummy bears or hearts. Whatever flavor you gravitate to, you’ll love that gummies are as simple to make as they are sweet.
