Here’s a fun way to support your gut and hormone health!
I love making these and giving them to my son as an after school snack.
Gelatine is a great way to support the health of the lining of the gut, which can be irritated from stress, excess pharmaceutical usage and food intolerances. Gelatine is also a great source of protein, which help support skin and hair health, as well as the production of peptide hormones like FSH, LH, TSH and prolactin.
What you need:
1 tablespoon gelatine powder (I like Planet Paleo’s version!)
400mL mango juice (I use the M&S Crushed Mango and Orange Juice)
A small pot
How to make it:
- Pour the juice into the pot and heat on medium temperature until it is gently boiling. Turn the heat down to low-medium.
- Add half of the gelatine powder and stir in until it completely integrated with no lumps.
- Add the rest of the gelatine powder and stir until it is totally stirred in.
- Take the mixture off the heat and use a small funnel to pour an even amount into each part of the silicone ice cube tray.
- Put into the coldest part of your fridge and let the dummies set for 3-4 hours.
