Herbal Tea Gello: All of the gelatin, none of the bones

Yesterday, I wrote about one of my new favorite books, Practical Paleo, and some of the ah-mahzing recipes within.

After writing that post, I proceeded to make yet another recipe from the book.

Herbal tea gelatin cubes. It’s another great way to reap the benefits of gelatin in a form other than broth.  Don’t get me wrong: I love me some good bone broth, but in the summer, it’s tough to motivate myself to drink a steaming mug of hot liquid. These cubes are light and refreshing…a perfect summer afternoon snack. Although mine don’t look super appetizing…I though my tea would turn them red, but I guess it was more of a yellow tea.

I just made some Knox Gelatin using the recipe on the box, but substituted herbal tea for the hot water.

Easy Peasy (frisky) lemon squeezy.

So easy and delicious. Next time, I’m going to use a berry tea of some kind. I’m hoping this will give them a red color and delicious berry flavor.

      Hi crystal! I do follow the practical paleo recipe, but I don’t use any sweetener. I tend to use a fruitier tea to give it a little flavor. Yogi teas and traditional medicinals have some great flavors.
