If you were like most kids who grew up in the 70s and 80s, you loved Jello. Unfortunately, my health knowledge now pretty much forbids anything like Jello from coming into the house. Luckily, I found a recipe that my kid loves and I feel good about giving to him. Fresh squeezed oranges (getting to the end of their season her in Texas) and pure bovine gelatin. Feel free to get creative with it. In the winter you could use a strong ginger tea with orange juice and grapefruit juice, or make up your own blend. While it isn’t traditionally “Ayurvedic” it is extremely nourishing, fabulous for the gut, and fun. *Since oranges are aggravating to Pitta, use another your juice if your child is heated.
Recipe 2-4 T 100% Pure Bovine Gelatin (Bernard Jenson is a great brand get it here) 4-5 oranges (freshly juiced) ¼ cup water
Boil ¼ to 1 cup of water. Add 2-4 T of Gelatin to boiled water (more gelatin=firmer). Stir until dissolved. Add fresh juice and water and gelatin. Pour into glass jar. Refrigerate for 2+ hours and eat!
