The Tropicós Girl takes care of her skin inside and out. When it comes to maintaining a healthy and glowing complexion, she knows collagen is key. Luckily, we can support our skin's collagen production through a delicious and simple treat: Raspberry Lemonade Glow Gummies! Packed with gelatin, these gummies provide protein and amino acids that help the body build more collagen, and glycine which helps your skin retain moisture (hello hydration!) and promotes radiant skin. In this blog post, we'll guide you through the effortless process of making these delightful gummies, so you can enjoy their beauty benefits throughout the day.
- 1 cup raspberry juice (freshly squeezed or store-bought)
- 1/2 cup lemon juice (freshly squeezed or store-bought)
- 2 tablespoons gelatin powder (preferably grass-fed)
- 2 tablespoons True Lemon (available at most health food stores and Walmart)
- Optional: honey or sweetener of choice (to taste)
Step 1: Unleash the Power of Gelatin - Gelatin is the star ingredient that works wonders for your skin. It contains essential protein and amino acids that aid in collagen synthesis, which is vital for maintaining healthy and youthful skin. Start by combining the raspberry juice and lemon juice in a small saucepan. Warm the mixture over medium heat until it's about to simmer. Remove from heat.
Step 2: Gelatin Magic - Sprinkle the gelatin powder evenly over the warm raspberry lemonade mixture. Whisk vigorously until the gelatin is fully dissolved, creating a smooth and velvety texture. If desired, add a touch of honey or your preferred sweetener to enhance the flavor.
Step 3: A Touch of True Lemon To elevate the lemonade experience - stir in 2 tablespoons of True Lemon. This natural lemon flavor adds a tangy zest without any artificial ingredients. It perfectly complements the raspberry and lemon flavors, making the gummies even more enjoyable.
Step 4: Set in Shape - Carefully pour the raspberry lemonade mixture into gummy molds. Silicone molds work best, as they make it easy to remove the gummies once set. If you don't have molds, you can use a shallow baking dish and later cut the gummies into squares or any desired shape.
Step 5: Time to Chill - Place the molds or baking dish in the refrigerator and let the gummies set for at least 2-3 hours, or until they become firm and gel-like.
Step 6: Delight in the Glow Gummies - Once the gummies have solidified, gently remove them from the molds or cut them into your preferred shapes. Store the gummies in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week.
With Raspberry Lemonade Glow Gummies, you can nourish your skin from within while savoring a delicious treat. Gelatin, the main ingredient, provides the building blocks for collagen production, resulting in healthier and more radiant skin. These gummies are a breeze to make and can be enjoyed throughout the day. So, why not prioritize your skin's health and indulge in these delightful Raspberry Lemonade Glow Gummies? Find the ingredients at your nearest health food store or Walmart, and let your skin glow from the inside out!
