Another sweet post. While I often try to let the vegetable, meat or whatever it is I’m posting about show its own beauty, I feel I must pump gelatin up a bit. If I told you eating some of these directly benefits the elasticity of your skin (re: cellulite, though I’m a fan of people loving the stretch mark-y, dimply skin they’re in), strength of your hair, nails and teeth and reduces inflammation of painful, achy joints, would you pop a few penguins down? If I told you it heals your intestinal tract and aides your body in healing its wounds, would you come make a batch with me?
Adapted from Balanced Bites’s Practical Paleo
2 cups water
1 tablespoon grass-fed gelatin
2 bags herbal tea of your choice (try rooibas, hibiscus, or jasmine for starters)
1.5 tablespoons honey (or sweetener of your choice)
Bring one cup of water up to a boil. Meanwhile, pour the tablespoon of gelatin over the remaining unheated water. Steep the bags of tea in the hot water for 3-4 minutes, remove bags and combine the hot and cold water. Add honey and mix all ingredients. Pour into a shallow dish, ice cube trays or mold(s) of your choice and allow to set up in the fridge for approximately 1 hour. Serves 4.
