Summer is here and strawberries are back in season! Our house has been loving the farm fresh strawberries from our local farm. Strawberries are packed with vitamin C, folate, manganese, potassium and vitamin K. They also contain one of the highest amounts of phytonutrients and flavonoids out there. Strawberries also pack a healthy dose of fiber which feeds our gut microbiome.
These Strawberry Ginger gummies are a perfect summer treat that is packed with vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients as well as an anti-inflammatory boost from the ginger ale. You can use store bought ginger ale or use a ginger bug to make your ginger ale. The ginger bug offers a touch of probiotics to help support the health of the microbiome. Here’s how we make these, the kids love to help!
12 oz of ginger ale (store bought or from ginger bug soda)
1/2 cup of smashed fresh strawberries
8 Tbsp. of grassfed gelatin
Heat ginger ale until warm to the touch
Add 8 Tbsp of gelatin, one at a time, stirring into the ginger ale
Pour mixture into a greased pan or mold (We use coconut oil to grease our pans/molds)
Add smashed strawberries to pan
Let set in refrigerator for 30-60 minutes and Enjoy!
Hope you enjoy this summer treat!
