My mum has been making this delicious cake for a while now, she’s on a very restrictive diet as is in the midst of being treated & recovering from SIBO.⠀

She can’t remember where she found the recipe but it has been slightly tweaked along the way. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!⠀

Gut Gummies

Gut gummies

Simple and fun to make (especially when you make them in cute molds!), gut gummies are ideal to give to children as ‘sweet treats’.

Made from Gelatin and fruit – they’re a fantastic way to improve gut health. Gut Gummies are made out of gelatin, which is great for healing your gut as it helps to restore a healthy mucosal lining in the stomach and reduce the amount of inflammation in the body.

I’ve recently purchased the Gut Lovin’ Gelatin from I Quit Sugar, another fantastic brand is Great Lakes Gelatin 

This recipe has been taken from an I Quit Sugar recipe,  it can easily be swapped for other fruits.

My favourite combination is mango and coconut,  following the recipe method below I use 1 cup mango, ½ cup coconut milk and the juice of 1 lemon.

You can purchase the mould that I used to make these gummy bear gummies from here.

Once you try these ‘chocolates’, you will never reach for the refined sugar, preservative laden type again!

These are such a fun thing to make with children and I have a collection of cute moulds that Gracie loves.

So simple to make and you can pick and choose if you want to add different things to the mixture.

You can purchase the moulds to make these eggs here and here.
