Orange and Strawberry Jelly – (sugar-free)

Homemade Orange and Strawberry Jelly

I’m sure my son isn’t the only one who loves store-bought sweet jelly – so this is my healthy, homemade,  orange and strawberry jelly.  He now says that he loves this one more, YES!! : ).

The jelly often makes it into his lunch box as a snack. It’s important to use grass-fed gelatin,  I use gelpro gelation – it is certified organic and has many health benefits such as helping digestion, stabilising sugar levels and an anti-inflammatory.

Make it seasonal

You can swap the orange and strawberry for other seasonal fruits such as raspberries, watermelon, mangoes, pineapple, apple, mandarins and pomegranates.  For a summer inspired flavoured jelly, try the following combinations – pineapple and coconut milk, mango and coconut milk or raspberries and coconut milk with a touch of vanilla.

Have fun and experiment!
