These are yummy and great for kids!

2 cups freshly squeezed lemon juice

1 cup water

1/2 cup beef gelatin (I like Great Lakes or Vital Proteins)

1-2 tbsp raw honey (or more to taste)

Pour lemon juice and water in a pan on the stove over medium heat. As it begins to warm, sprinkle the gelatin over the surface. After a few minutes, whisk to combine and once gelatin is desolved, remove from heat. Add honey (allow to cool slightly before dissolving the honey if the juice/water got hot) and pour into a shallow dish or 8×10 pan.   Allow to set in the fridge for at least 2 hours. Cut to serve or use cookie cutters to make fun shapes.

More ideas: Lily Nichols recommends tart cherry juice and those are my son’s favorite! Use 3 cups tart cherry juice instead of 2 cups lemon juice and 1 cup water and follow the directions above. You can check out her recipe and wonderful nutrition advice in her book Real Food for Pregnancy.
