Gelatin | A Beautifying Jello Recipe

I did a bit of thrift shopping in my hometown over the holiday which I NEVER do in LA as I don’t have the patience to sift through things here.  However, it’s always a goldmine when you head to a town that doesn’t share the same aesthetic. 

As I’ve always been in love with vintage copper cake molds, I was so happy to find one that I really cherished.  And it makes for the PERFECT gelatin jello mold.  I started incorporating gelatin into my cooking a bit ago at the recommendation of my acupuncturist to nourish a few gut issues.  Then I began to notice the insane affects it had on my skin, hair and nails.  My skin plumped up with a glow, my hair started growing like bananas, and my nails became much stronger.  A few reasons why one should consider adding this super nourishing supplement to their cooking:

GELATIN BENEFITS | makes up 25% to 35% of the total protein content of the body | rich source of collagen which creates strength and firmness in skin, slows aging, helps to reduce visible signs of wrinkles | provides lacking minerals that build strong nails, teeth and hair | prevents cellulite | liver detoxifying | boosts fat burning | helps produce hydrochloric acid in the stomach which assists digestion and assimilation of nutrients | gut healing | strengthens bones | improves arthritis | adrenal building | hormone balancing | faster recover and healing after injury | lowers inflammation | sleep aiding


This has become one of the quickest treats I make and is all-around amazing

16 oz cold pressed juice | I chose to use Moon Juice’s Cilantro Celery Punch

1 Tbls of Vital Proteins Gelatin

4 Tbls Warm Water

PROCESS | bring 4 tablespoons of water to an (almost) boil.  Pour into a small dish and dissolve the 1 tablespoon of gelatin slowly, stirring well, until all clumps have been broken down and you have a clear texture.  Pour that into mold or bowl of choice.  Add juice and mix well.  This should all take about 3 minutes.  Set in refrigerator for 2-3 hours. Pull out and enjoy!
