It’s that time of year again and we’re all about the apples at our house! Last weekend we made fresh pressed apple juice, apple cider and applesauce. I also surprised myself with this yummy Spiced Apple Ginger Gummy recipe. It’s anti-inflammatory, gut healing, packed with nutrition and is a delicious healthy treat as the weather turns colder.
What’s Great about these Gummies?
- Apples are packed with antioxidants, potassium, vitamin C, niacin and vitamin B6 with lesser amounts of calcium, vitamin K, iron, copper, phosphorus, and magnesium. They are also loaded with phytonutrients and flavonoids like quercetin, epicatechin, phloridzin, and other polyphenolic compounds.
- Ginger is anti-inflammatory and loaded with nutrients and antioxidants. It can also help with digestion, making it a great addition to these gummies.
- Cinnamon is loaded with antioxidants as well. It can help lower blood sugar and protect against free radical damage in the body.
- Gelatin or pectin used to thicken the gummies are extremely gut soothing and healing.
12 oz of apple ginger juice
