Collagen Peptides and Gelatin: 2 Great Recipes!

February 08, 2016

You probably saw my post about Collagen Peptides. They are the purest and easiest from of protein powders. In fact, I don't know if I would even call them a protein powder---I think I would call them a SUPERfood powder!  

Another form of this superfood is also found in gelatin. I'm not talking about Jello gelatin. That stuff is made from unhealthy cows and other animals who have been fed and treated very poorly. I am talking about high quality real gelatin that comes from grass-fed cows. This gelatin has the same superfood powers as the Collagen Peptides and you can make delicious treats with it.  

Just in time for Valentine's Day here are 2 Sweet Treats made with superfood gelatin.

Love Puddin'

1 3/4 cups full fat coconut milk
1 1/2 Tbsp grass-fed gelatin
1 Tbsp honey or organic coconut palm sugar
2 Tbsp organic raw cacao powder
1/4 tsp organic vanilla powder
1 cup fresh or frozen organic raspberries

Pour coconut milk into a small sauce pan. Wisk in gelatin. Warm that mixture until the gelatin is completely dissolved and the milk begins to slightly simmer. Turn the heat off and wisk in honey or coconut palm sugar, cacao and vanilla powder.

Pour the pudding into 4 small ramekins or mason jars. Chill for at least 2 hours. Garnish with raspberries right before serving. 

Love-tastic Gummies

2 cups organic juice (I LOVE Lakewood juices)
7 Tbsp grass-fed gelatin
1 heart or other candy mold

Pour juice and gelatin in a small sauce pan. Wisk gelatin until all clumps are broken up. Warm the mixture on medium heat until it starts to simmer.

Remove the mixture from heat and pour into a candy mold. I find this is easier if I use a funnel or basting syringe.

Chill for at least 2 hours. If the gummies are difficult to remove from the mold, place the mold in a shallow tray of warm water. The edges will loosen as the bottom gets warm.
