I know I’ve said it before but it’s still so hot here! Ugh, frustrating to say the least.
I’ve been trying to make it feel a bit more like fall by lighting my harvest candles, putting out fall decorations, and of course making pumpkin flavored things!
The hard part has been eating the warmer, comfort foods with the temps still being in the upper 90’s. So making something cooler and more refreshing but still having the flavors of fall has been ideal.
Like these super easy, delicious and extremely nutritious Pumpkin Pie Jello Jigglers!
A favorite in our household. Sounds strange but I guarantee you’ll love these! As will your whole family 🙂 Even the hubby said, “They taste just like pumpkin pie!”
The only difference is, these are actually really good for you. Why? Well they are made from organic grass-fed gelatin (affiliate link), that has amazing health benefits.
- Supports skin, hair and nail growth
- Good for joints and can help joint recovery
- Can help tighten loose skin (like the kind you get after having four babies in five years…)
- Can improve digestion since it naturally binds to water and helps food move more easily though the digestive track
- Rumored to help improve cellulite
- Great source of dietary collagen
- Source of protein and specific amino acids can help build muscle. (from Wellness Mama)
So I add it in wherever I can and what better way to do so than with Jello Jigglers!
- 1 can whole fat, canned coconut milk
- 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
- 1 tbsp. pumpkin spice
- 2 tbsp raw honey
- 5 tbsp. grass-fed gelatin (I use Great Lakes)
- In a medium saucepan over medium heat, warm coconut milk, pumpkin puree, pumpkin spice and honey.
- Just before it begins to simmer lower heat and whisk in gelatin 1 tbsp. at a time. If you do it all at the same time it will clump together.
- Once the gelatin is dissolved, remove from heat and pour into molds or a baking dish.
- Chill in the fridge until set up then pop out of molds or cut and enjoy!
- Have you ever made your own jello? Not the packaged kind?
- Do you have a hard time eating warm comfort foods when it’s still hot?
