Gelatin, something that can gross people out and excite them all in one go. One thing for sure, when it’s from a good source (ie grass fed or organic) it is a wholefood nutrient powerhouse!
Gelatin is a complete protein, rich in amino acids and we need these amino acids for cellular building, wound healing and more. When looking at gut health we need protein and its building blocks amino acids to heal, repair and strengthen the digestive system and gut lining.
Protein also has an amazing role in balancing our blood glucose levels, our energy levels, hormone development and muscle repair.
One thing that gelatin is not – it is not vegan, however, please don’t let that stop you from enjoying all these gut loving benefits.
This recipe is super simple to make, and once you have the formula it can be used on a wide range of ingredients. Coconut cream rather than the cashew milk, pureed raspberries and cashew milk, orange juice and vitamin c powder… the list is endless!
This recipe is high protein, gluten free, dairy free, delicious but not vegan.
