PEACH GUMMIE CUBES
Peaches are in season here in Perth and I love making these delicious cubes made from peaches and gelatine. It’s a healthier snack than most with the many benefits of gelatine.
Grass-fed beef gelatine improves skin and hair, repairs joints, helps leaky gut, boost metabolism, strengthen teeth and nails, helps detox, and reduces cellulite.
It’s important that you use organic peaches as peaches are on the “dirty dozen” list. Fruit and vegetables on the dirty dozen list are often laden with pesticides and other chemicals. These are apples, capsicum, blueberries, celery, grapes, cucumber, lettuce, nectarines, peaches, potatoes, strawberries and spinach.
Another great thing about these gelatine treats is that it’s so easy to make. I find it easier than most baked treats and breads. It takes no time.
1 cup water (divided)
1/2 cup (8 tablespoons) gelatin powder (I used Great Lakes Gelatin)
1/4 cup honey, maple syrup, rice syrup (optional and to taste)
1 cup water kefir, kombucha or fruit juice
3 organic peaches (pureed) or 1 cup of other pureed fruit
It is important to have all ingredients ready before beginning as you’ll need to work quickly once you start.
Puree fruit to create a puree the consistency of applesauce or a little thinner and set aside.I used our Thermomix.
Set aside one cup of water kefir, kombucha or fruit juice. I used our homemade water kefir (how to make water kefir)
Boil 1/2 cup water and place 1/2 cup cool water in a medium sized bowl (or Thermomix). Add 1/2 cup gelatin powder and stir quickly to create a paste and then quickly add the 1/2 cup boiling water and stir again briskly. This should form a thick but stirable liquid.
Add the honey, maple syrup or rice syrup and stir.
Add the water kefir, kombucha or juice and pureed peaches and stir well. You can stir with a spoon or whisk, or use an immersion blender to make it really easy. I used our Thermomix.
Very quickly pour the mixture in to molds or a greased glass baking dish or other greased dish and allow
to cool in fridge for 2-3 hours. Store in fridge in an airtight container for 1-2
