AIP Carrot Gummies Recipe
Who says gummies are just for kids? This has got to be the most fun way to get important nutrients. If you have kids you might want to make a double batch for sharing.
Making AIP Candy
Sugar cravings can be hard on an AIP diet. It’s in just about every kind of processed food, which makes it really hard to give up.
Your body physically craves it, but your mind also wanders to the treats you used to enjoy without a thought.
These AIP carrot gummies are a lifesaver. The sweetness of the carrots helps quell cravings and the gelatin enables a similar texture and mouth feel to mimic store-bought gummy candies.
This recipe is as simple as it gets: just carrot juice and gelatin. If you’re buying your carrot juice, just be sure there aren’t any added sugars.
Adding Some Fun
Silicone ice cube trays are easy to work with, and they’ll give you nice clean cubes. But you can also get candy molds and make pretty much any shape you want.
A quick internet search churned up molds for gummy bears, stars, hearts, fruit shapes, gems and many more. Try the recipe once with an ice cube tray you have on hand, and if you like it I highly recommend getting creative with a fun mold.
Your kids and/or guests will love this sweet treat!
