GAPS & Paleo Blueberry Jello

3 cups blueberries
2 cups water 
1/2 cup honey
1/8 cup lemon juice 
3 Tbsp gelatin

Boil water and blueberries in a medium-size saucepan. Remove from heat and puree with an immersion blender. Pour fruit mixture through a wire mesh strainer, using a spoon to stir it and coax all the juice to separate from the pulp. If desired, set aside the pulp to use in smoothies. Stir honey and lemon juice into the juice mixture then pour in gelatin. Use the blender to quickly but thoroughly mix gelatin into the fruit.
Pour jello into an 8×8-inch glass baking dish or jello mold. Allow it to cool, then cover it and refrigerate for 2 hours or overnight.

    Wow! I have to get this book! I made the strawberry & lemon gummy gelatin for the 4th. I wanted something red, white and blue, so I also made some with coconut milk and some with blueberries. They were so delicious! I used frozen blueberries for the blue and just pureed them. I’m sure they would have been better if I had strained them. I’m sure this gelatin recipe will be delicious as well!

  2. Sandra M says:

    For the above recipe, what if we use frozen blueberries – should we add less water? I have found that they seem to exude a lot of water as they thaw and recipes can turn out runny. Thanks in advance! :)

  3. I was kinda doubtful at first, till I made it. Not gonna lie, it taste quite delicious! Frozen bluberries did work fine. Thanks for the article!

  4. Gelatin can be high in glutamates, and some children on the spectrum are sensitive to glutamates (see the work of Amy Yasko), so proceed cautiously and observe for reactions after ingesting gelatin.

  5. Hi!
    Can xylitol and stevia be used instead of honey in Gelatin recipes?
    We can’t have anything that feeds Candida.
