Collagen Jello

Print Friendly
This is a great recipe for joint support, wound-healing support, skin support, post-surgery, and when fighting illness. In my house we have this daily. Don’t use papaya or pineapple because they have enzymes that will turn the jello to mush and it won’t form properly. This is autoimmune paleo friendly.
Ingredients
4 cups 100% Any Organic Juice (No Sweetener Added) – except for any containing papaya or pineapple will  work
2-3 Tablespoons Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides
 
Directions

1. Place 4 cups juice into a pan and heat till it just starts to steam Don’t boil the juice. Add collagen and whisk well until dissolved. Whisking is key. Let cool 5 minutes.

2. Pour mixture into a glass dish, ramequins, or ceramic dish. Pyrex works well.

The glass dish can be 20% filled with any organic fresh or frozen fruit except papaya or pineapple. Berries and pitted fruit (peaches, plums, nectarines, cherries) work well. Let cool 15-20 minutes.

3. Place in the fridge for at least 4 hours to have it set and firm properly. Don’t shake the container during this time.
