Fear not! You won't find yourself in a drunken stooper with these summer treats. We were inspired to try these alcohol-free and gut-friendly jello shots inspired by one of our favorite blog and nutrition authorities, Unbound Wellness.
What the buzz about Kombucha?
Though most of us are likely familiar, Kombucha is a concoction of bacteria, tea and sweeteners that is known for its extensive health benefits, including better digestion and reduced inflammation. Kombucha is having its 15 minutes of fame at the moment despite the fact that this tea dates back 2,000 years to ancient China, where it was regularly consumed to remedy inflammatory ailments and even ward off more serious diseases. In anycase, we found it to be a particularly nice flavor combo in our booze-free jello shots!
Why add Beef Gelatin?
When we think of a summery sweet treat, we might not think of adding a source of bovine protein to the mix. It doesn't exactly scream sweet or refreshing at first glance. However, beef gelatin is one of the most versatile, paleo-friendly, superfoods you can add to your baking and cooking recipes without even knowing its there. Furthermore, we've used Grass-Fed Beef Gelatin which is an all-natural, non-GMO variety packed with amino acids and comes as an unflavored, tasteless, and odorless powder that you can add to just about anything! Besides its role in gut-health, Beef gelatin also nurtures a healthy metabolism and can assist in weight loss, as the extra protein helps curb your appetite.
