Top Deck Gummies

Gummies are one of my favourite gut friendly snacks to make. They are so easy to make and my kids love them - especially the two layered variety like these ‘top deck’ ones. The layers are a mix of cacao and coconut cream, with some added coconut yoghurt for a dose of probiotics. I use Kultured Wellness coconut yoghurt for its high probiotic count, but any variety of coconut yoghurt would work for this recipe.

To get the maximum benefits out of the gelatin ensure you use a good quality, grass fed variety from your health food store rather than the standard ones from the supermarket. My favourite brands to use are Great Lakes and Nutra Organics.

Ginger and Turmeric Cold and Flu Gummies

cold and flu gummies

These are my favourite gummies to make when trying to fight off a cold. They are packed full of good stuff - turmeric, ginger, lemon, honey and coconut kefir to make for an anti inflammatory, immune boosting, good for your guts gummy.  

I make these especially for Anjali (my 2 and a half year old) and she loves them but if you don't like the flavour of turmeric you can adjust the amount of honey to suit.

I've been using Kultured Wellness cultures to make my coconut kefir but you can also substitute kombucha or water keeping in mind that if you use water you won't get the benefits of the probiotics.
