It really is a shame what passes the test. But with these treats, you don’t have to worry about any of that because there are just 7 ingredients and they’re all natural. No preservatives, no refined sugar, no gluten, no garbage going into your body. And they only take 15 minutes to make. So go ahead, you deserve to treat yourself!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup juice (for mine I made three different batches using homemade strawberry-apple, beet-apple, and orange)
  • 1 ½ Tbsp honey
  • 3 Tbsp Vital Proteins Grass-Fed Gelatin

Directions

  1. Heat your juice in a small saucepan until just before it boils.
  2. Turn the heat down to low and whisk in the honey.
  3. Whisk in your gelatin powder, 1 tablespoon at a time, and continue to stir while heating until it’s fully dissolved (this took about 8-10 minutes for me).
  4. Now you can either pour you gummies straight into the mold of your choice (make sure to grease it with some coconut oil if it isn’t silicon) or you could grease a glass baking dish with coconut oil and pour it all into that.
  5. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours until your gummies are fully solidified.
  6. Now you can either remove your gummies from the mold or if you poured them into a glass dish you can cut them into little cubes.
  7. Enjoy!

Peanut Butter and Jelly Smoothie Bowl

PBandJ smoothie bowl 1

Growing up, I could not refuse a good ‘ole PB & J. How could anyone turn that down? It might be one of the greatest combos of all time. I’d vote for it. But since I don’t eat bread anymore, I have to get creative whenever I crave that beautiful combination.

Then I realized something. What is jelly other than a bunch of grapes? And granola could easily take the place of bread. And peanut butter? Well that just stays the same because you can’t mess with the best. So what could you make with all that, you ask?

ONE PRETTY DARN AMAZING SMOOTHIE BOWL!!!!

I don’t know if you guys have had frozen grapes before, but they’re literally candy. And add granola and peanut butter to them and you’ve got yourself an instant classic.

Anddddd, with Easter coming up that means lots of purple, pink, and yellow foods so what better thing to serve on Easter than a giant bowl of purple? It’s perfect. Forget candy, the Easter Bunny’s going healthy this year! But your kids won’t even know the difference because it tastes so freakin’ good.

Also, if you know of any other good PB & J alternatives please share in the comments, I’d love to try them!! Happy Easter everyone!
