Easter is just around the corner and that means the shops are filled with sugary chocolate eggs and candies. It feels like just yesterday it was Christmas and we were surrounded by the same temptations! Like all kids, mine love these treats but I’ve noticed their behavior is less than great after a sugar high. They buzz around for a few hours then absolutely crash with meltdowns. No treat is worth that sort of aftermath in my mind! I prefer to make healthier treats myself where I can control the ingredients and also ensure there is at least some nutrition. Try these delicious raspberry gummies I’m making my kids for Easter! They use honey instead of sugar and the grass fed-gelatin is great for their tummies. Check around the shops for a festive silicone mold in a the shape of eggs or bunnies!
- ¾ cup lemon juice
- 1 cup frozen raspberries
- 3 tablespoons honey
- ¼ cup grass-fed gelatin
- Place lemon juice and raspberries in a blender and blend on high until completely mixed. Pour into a saucepan.
- Add the honey and gelatin and whisk together. You will have a thick paste. Turn the heat on low/medium, and continue to whisk the mixture for 5-10 minutes, until it becomes thin and everything is incorporated. Take off the heat.
- Pour into silicone molds or a small baking dish. Set in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour to firm up.
- If you used a small baking dish as a receptacle, cut into bite-size squares. Otherwise, remove gummies from their molds and enjoy!
Bye for now,
