Natural jelly recipe

Category: food

Natural gelatin – the main ingredient in jelly – is actually tremendously good for the body. They’re high in anti-inflammatory amino acids like glycine and proline, helps nails and hair grow fast and strong, promotes restful sleep and even improves memory and learning.

Although store-bought jelly is convenient, it’s often filled with sugar and artificial flavouring and dyes. The good news is that home-made version only needs three ingredients and they are just as delicious!

  • 2 cups of your favourite natural juice (not from concentrate)

  • Raw honey
  • ½ cup of raw fruit (optional)

    Don’t let the mixture sit too long or it will start to clump.
