Gut-Healing Floral Gummies

What makes these gummies so healing for the gut? The amino acids in the collagen and gelatin! These amino acids go to work to help to repair the intestinal lining by healing the cells that have been damaged and build new, healthy tissue. Since collagen is the most abundant protein in the body, these gummies can help with so much more than your gut. If you’re looking for healthier hair, skin, and nails, you have to give these a try! Now, not all collagen/gelatin is created equal. Make sure when purchasing you’re looking for sources that are grass-fed and pasture-raised and don’t come with any other junky ingredients. I hope you give these a try and even put your own twist on them! Be sure to tag @natureandtime when you do!

Ingredients:

  • 2 ¼  cups water, divided 
  • 1 cup dehydrated hibiscus flowers
  • 3 chamomile tea bags
  • 2 cinnamon sticks broken up into smaller pieces 
  • 4 tbl (¼ cup) gelatin
  • ½ cup coconut sugar
  • 2 packets of Vital Proteins Lemon Lavender Beauty Collagen
  • Zest of one orange

Instructions:

  1. Bring 2 cups of water to a boil and add hibiscus flowers, tea bags, and cinnamon. Cover and simmer for 20-30 minutes. 
  2. Meanwhile, bloom the gelatin. To do this, add about ¼ cup water to a small bowl and sprinkle the gelatin over top. The gelatin will absorb the water which will make it easier to dissolve in the mixture later.
  3. Once the concentrate is done brewing, pour through a sieve to drain. 
  4. Add sugar and collagen. Stir to dissolve. 
  5. Add bloomed gelatin and whisk until fully incorporated.
  6. Stir in orange zest 
  7. Add mixture to silicone mold of choice or to an 8×8 baking dish. 
  8. Allow to firm up in the fridge for at least one hour
  9. Remove from mold (or cut into desired size if using a baking dish) and enjoy! 

Notes:

  • If you don’t have the Lemon Lavender Beauty Collagen, you can add a teaspoon of dried lavender flowers and one tablespoon of lemon juice while brewing the concentrate. Use 4 tbl (¼ cup) collagen during step 4. 
  • If you do not have a zesting tool, you can use a vegetable peeler to peel off the zest and then chop into small pieces (this is what I did!).
  • To make the zest more evenly distributed, I stir the mixture after it has had some time to cool, but is not quite yet set.
