Kombucha jello is a very nutritious, probiotic and just about pure protein. That’s an amazing combo for a yummy snack! Kombucha jello is a good pre or post workout snack. It’s also super easy to make and you only need two ingredients, Kombucha and gelatin. You will also need a mixing bowl, a whisk, and some form of jello mold to put it in. You also want to make sure you use a good quality gelatin, we love Great Lakes Gelatin. there are other brands out there, but you want to be sure to get gelatin that comes from happy, grass fed, cows.
Again super easy!!! Put one tablespoon of gelatin per two pints of liquid in a mixing bowl, then stir it up (with Bob Marley’s song in your head…little darling.) It may fizz up a bit when you stir it, that’s just the probiotic in the kombucha, it will simmer down in a minute.
Once the gelatin is dissolved, pour the solution into fun jello molds, or a shallow pyrex dish, and put in the refrigerator to set. Sometimes you may have to heat the solution to get the gelatin to dissolve, but we prefer not to heat the kombucha, as it may kill some of the live probiotic. The setting time varies, but should take a few hours or so. Then voilla!! You’ve got yourself some beautiful, yummy, jello!! If the jello does not pop out of the mold or pyrex dish, just dip it in some hot water for a few seconds and then they should slide right out.
A very fun and easy way to get kids to enjoy these too is to add a couple table spoons of raw honey, this will sweeten the deal for the kidos!
1 tbls Great Lakes Gelatin
2 pints Kombucha
Optional: 2 tbls raw honey
