These gummies are really zingy. They look amazing too if I don’t say so myself.
You can choose to use a small amount of ginger – about 1 cm cubed for a subtle hint like I do, because I share mine with Meika. Or go hard and put a heap in there – 2.5cm cube.
The trick is to grate your ginger and leave in boiling water to really draw out the flavor. Then use the water as your liquid component. I learnt this trick from the Gutalicious cook book. That book is amazing! You can order it from Kultured Wellness.
I use stevia to sweeten my gummies but you can use honey or your usual sweetener of choice, if stevia is not your thing. Feel free to use my iHerb code GAN2478 to receive a small discount.
Be sure to use an organic grass fed gelatin. I use Changing Habits. It works perfectly for me every time. I find the best method i’ve tried so far when using gelatin is to mix your gelatin in small bowl with and equal quantity of water, plus one extra tablespoon of water, stir and leave to bloom.

Raspberry, lime & ginger Gummies
30 minutes to set
Prepare your gelatin, ginger and lime as mentioned above.
Place raspberries, coconut water (if not using kefir), lime juice, stevia, cooled liquid from ginger brew into blender and blitz on high until smooth.
Place bloomed gelatin in to a saucepan on med-low heat, stir constantly until runny. Turn off heat but leave on hot plate and stir in blended mix. Whisk until well combined.
Take off heat for a few minutes and stir in coconut water kefir. If it is not combining well - you may need to add a tiny bit of heat to the pan again - keeping in mind the probiotics in the kefir may not survive this.
Taste for sweetness and adjust as necessary.
Pour in to silicone moulds or glass pyrex dish, place in to fridge and eat once set.
Tip - You can freeze these and put into school lunch boxes so they are thawed but cool by the time meal breaks come around.
