Sometimes you (I mean I!) just need a delicious chocolate treat! Wouldn't it be wonderful if there was a delicious, nutrition packed, easy chocolate gummy recipe? This healthy chocolate gummy is yummy and easy to make. The gummies store well in the fridge or freezer, and are silky smooth unlike some of the other gummy recipes out there! High quality gelatin from pasture raised cows is full of amino acids and soothing to the gut. Coconut milk is rich in non-PUFA fatty acids. Cacao is full of magnesium and other minerals. Finally, raw honey is soothing to the gut and nourishing to the immune system!
1 can full fat coconut milk (unsweetened and with no fillers)
3 tb gelatin. I use Great Lakes
½ cup raw cacao powder. I use Navita
1 tb vanilla extract
⅓ c raw honey plus 1 TB
1 c boiling water (allow to cool before adding raw honey)
1. Combine boiling water and gelatin in a separate bowl. Stir well to dissolve completely. Set aside to cool for five minutes.
2. Combine coconut milk, cacao, and vanilla in a Vitamix or high speed blender.
3. Add warm (not too hot) dissolved gelatin into the Vitamix and blend on high until fully combined.
4. Add raw honey, pour into pan or molds and refrigerate overnight.
