Gut-Healing Kombucha Jello Shots With Grass-Fed Beef Gelatin

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.

Let's make some Jello Shots!


By Unbound Wellness

  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup kombucha (flavored or unflavored… your choice!)
  • 1/3 cup frozen fruit (cherries or blueberries for the darker red, or strawberries for pink)
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp of Amandean Grass-Fed Beef Gelatin Powder

  1. ADD water and fruit to a high speed blender and mix on high for 1-2 minutes or until thoroughly combined. You don’t want any chunks or fruit skins visibly present. The texture should be smooth..

  2. Pour the mixture into a sauce pan and stir in the honey.

  3. Very slowly sprinkle in the gelatin to make sure it’s evenly spread out and dissolves.

  4. Quickly whisk the mixture to combine the gelatin.

  5. Place the sauce pan on a stove top set to medium/low heat for 4-5 minutes or until the gelatin is fully melted.

  6. Pull off the stove and allow to cool for a few minutes.

  7. Once cooled, add in the kombucha.

  8. The kombucha will foam, so allow the mixture to settle for a minute or so, and then scoop off the excess foam with a spoon.

  9. Pour the mixture into shot glasses (you’ll have 3-4 for tall shot glasses and 6-8 for shorter ones) and allow to set in the fridge for 45-60 minutes before enjoying.

  10. NOTE that the shots may harden to the point where it’s difficult to pour out of a shot glass depending on the glasses you use and how long they were in the fridge. If this happens, simply just break them up with a spoon or straw!

Can Collagen and Biotin Slow Age-Related Hair Loss?

January 19, 2022

Hair loss is the least of your worries, right? Well, yes and no. Whether it's genetically motivated or the result of an underlying illness or condition, thinning hair can feel like a neon sign calling the world's attention to us in a very unwanted way. However, it can be difficult for others to understand why it is such a big deal. After all, undergoing chemotherapy, having a serious thyroid issue, going through menopause, or one of the other myriad things that cause hair loss are far more serious than having to clean the shower drain or wearing a hat. Or so we're told.

It is a big deal, though. Hair is culturally a big deal. Being raised in a world that glorifies Rapunzel, Lady Godiva, Jennifer Aniston, and Dolly Parton (even though she wears wigs!) makes it difficult to embrace thinning hair. And when we are experiencing losses in other areas of our lives, we want some things to just feel normal!
