Nourishing and full of probiotics? Yes, please! These paleo and refined sugar-free kombucha lemon gummies are the perfect healthy summer treat!
Summer is here and so are the treats, so check out these homemade kombucha lemon gummies we made at home that hit the spot.
We’re always trying to incorporate kombucha into different recipes, from making smoothies to fun cocktails, and we even made kombucha body scrub! There’s honestly so much you can do with kombucha. So we decided to try making these gummies with them and they were DELICIOUS! And your kids will love them too.
This is also a great way to sneak some nutrition into your kids snacks. Kombucha is packed with antioxidants and nutrients, it’s rich in iron, vitamin B, C and DSL, and it’s anti-inflammatory. Kombucha helps in detoxifying and helps leaky gut and so much more! So if your kids aren’t into drinking kombucha, make them these gummies and thank us later.
1 ½ cups Lemony Booch Kombucha
1-inch chunk of fresh ginger
1 tablespoon of lemon zest
10 drops of trace minerals
¼ cup gelatin
6 tablespoons honey
½ teaspoon of lemon extract (optional if you’re using Lemony Booch Kombucha)
Place the kombucha in a saucepan and sprinkle it with gelatin. Let it bloom for a few minutes, then turn the heat to medium-low. Stir in the gelatin while the kombucha gently heats. You DO NOT want it to be hot, make sure it’s just warm. Too much heat will destroy the probiotics in the kombucha, but make sure you have just enough heat to dissolve the gelatin.
With a fine grater, grate the ginger and lemon zest.
When the gelatin is dissolved, remove the pan from the heat and pour the mixture and remaining ingredients - except for the ginger and lemon into a blender and pulse to puree. Stir in ginger and zest and pour the mixture into a 9x9 inch pan and refrigerate for a few hours until firm to the touch.
Once they’re firm, slice them up and store them back in your fridge.
You should have bits of ginger and lemon zest in the finished product. If you want your gummies to be smooth, then you can add the ginger and zest to the blender before you puree.
Let me know what you think!
