Simple Nourishing Fruit Jellies Recipe

Servings: 40 mini jellies as pictured from a mini muffin tin mould

Ingredients

  • 650 ml liquid (kombucha or water kefir give you sensational probiotic benefits but freshly pressed juice for these small quantities is fine on occasion. I don’t recommend drinking fruit juices because of the fructose content. 1 glass apple juice = 6-7 teaspoons sugar! BUT if you’re having a couple of these as your delicious little sweet treat for the day, no harm done at all! ENJOY <3 ) I did 500ml raspberry kombucha / 150ml water
  • 4 tbsp Great Lakes Grass Fed Gelatin (You can grab from Organics on a budget here  with free shipping! It will last you ages so don't panic too much about price. You'll get at least 20 batches of jelly done with one carton!)
  • 3/4 cup chopped berries / bananas / watermelon whatever you fancy!

Equipment needed

  • 1 mould to pour your jelly into You can make one big slab of it and cut into squares, or you can pop into a mini muffin tray, like I’ve done here.

Instructions

For Thermomix Users

  • Set temperature to Varoma and 2mins 30 secs to bring your liquid to the boil. Then follow the instructions and blend your gelatin in for 5 seconds, Speed 7. All other instructions are same, same.

Regular Method

  • Boil your water and just 150ml of the remaining fruit liquid of your choice. As you see it boil, pour it into a blender and blend on high speed the gelatin powder – ensuring that the gelatin doesn’t get stuck on the blades going in – it needs to make it into the liquid!
  • Then add the rest of your liquid into the hot liquid and pulse a couple of seconds.
  • Set aside.
  • Now pop 4-6 tiny pieces of fruit into each mini muffin mould – They shouldn’t take up more than 1/4 of the space, to allow plenty of liquid to come under, between and around them.
  • Now carefully pour the warm fruit liquid over the fruit pieces in your mould.
  • Pop in the fridge to set. 2 hours minimum.
  • Do demould, you can trace around the jellies with a small knife and then lift under them with a teaspoon to pop out.
  • Store on a platter in the fridge or eat straight away once set.
