Herb Gelatin Jigglers
This is a fun way to get kids to take their herbs for the added nutrition, for illness, or for comfort.
Using herbal teas or fresh fruit juices instead of pre-packaged gelatin dessert mixes will maximize the nutrition and the health benefits of this fun dessert snack. Gelatin is also healing in itself (see more on gelatin below).
When you combine the healing power of herbs, juice from fresh fruits, sweet honey, and the added benefits of gelatin together for a cool treat, the kids won’t turn away!
Great combinations to choose from:
Lemon Balm tea with fresh Lemon Juice and Orange Juice – for fevers and viruses
Elderberry tincture with Rosehips and Mullein- for colds and respiratory problems
Nettles tea with Blackberry juice – for allergies and hay fever
Ginger tea with Lemon Juice – for colds and congestion
Apple Juice and Chamomile tea – to aid in digestion and soothe
1 cup liquid goodness – a mixture of 1/2 c herbal tea 1/2 fresh fruit juice (from choices above)
Herbal tinctures (optional, follow dosing instructions, glycerin extracts taste better)
½ cup hot water
¼ cup honey (or preferred sweetener to taste)
3 heaping Tablespoons or more of gelatin (gelatin made from grass-fed beef, like Great Lakes is best)
