Five most popular recipes made using gelatin

1. Jelly 2. Snakes / confectionary 3. Marshmallows 4. Vanilla slice 5. Turkish delight HOT TIPS: One of the secrets of making fluffy marshmallows is to beat the Gelatine mixture for at least 10 minutes before it sets to ensure a fluffy texture.

How to bloom gelatin?

Sprinkle the powdered gelatin evenly over a small amount of cold water (approximately ¼ – ⅓ cup of water for every 1 tbsp. of gelatin). This technique is called “blooming.” Allow to sit for 5-10 minutes until the mixture has turned to the consistency of applesauce. Depending on the recipe, add the paste immediately to a warm liquid and whisk to dissolve. Or, if adding to a cold mixture, heat the paste in a microwave in 15 second bursts until it turns to liquid then add. Don’t let the mixture sit too long or it will solidify.

Jelly a Healthy Alternative for Infants

For the batch pictured here, use 4 cups fresh pomegranate juice and 4 Tbsp NesProteins Grass Fed Gelatin Divide juice approximately in half. Add gelatin to cold juice and stir; set aside. Bring other half of juice to a boil, then add to the gelatin/juice mixture. Stir to dissolve the gelatin and pour into a shallow pan. Place in the fridge to cool. When completely gelled, cut in cubes (or use a fun shaped cookie cutter), and enjoy! The jello will taste less sweet than your original juice, so if you prefer a sweeter jello, stir in a touch of raw honey before cooling to set. Experiment with stirring in some fresh berries or a swirl of raw cream before chilling.

Spinach Artichoke Frittata

Serves: 4-6 ½ large onion, chopped 14 oz. canned artichoke hearts, drained 2 c. roughly-chopped spinach (or other greens of choice) 6 eggs ½ c. canned coconut milk 3 tbsp. NesProteins Grass Fed Beef Gelatin 1 tsp. sea salt ½ tsp. black pepper 4 oz. pastured feta cheese, crumbled Fresh parsley, for topping Directions: Preheat the oven to 180C. Heat a medium-depth, oven-safe skillet (25cm diameter is best) over medium heat. Grease lightly and add the onion. Sauté until translucent, about 3-5 minutes. Cut the artichoke hearts into quarters and add them to the pan. Continue to sauté until both the onion and artichoke begin to brown, about 8-10 minutes more. Add the spinach and stir until wilted, about 2 minutes. While the vegetables are sautéing, add the eggs and coconut milk to a large bowl. Whisk well. Add the NesProteins Beef Gelatin, sea salt, and black pepper and whisk continuously until well-combined. (Note: if the gelatin clumps too much, you can run the mix through a blender to smooth it out.) Pour the egg mix into the skillet and spread the vegetables out in an even layer. Sprinkle the feta overtop. Cook until the edges begin to brown, about 5 minutes. Move the skillet to the oven and bake for 20-24 minutes, or until the eggs are puffy and cooked through. Allow the frittata to rest 5 minutes before slicing and serving. Top with chopped parsley, as desired.

Peanut Choc Nutty Ice Cream Bar

A fun play on the popular Peanut Buster Bar, these Choco-Nutty Banana Ice Cream Bars are both deliciously and healthy. The layers sit in perfect harmony with a chewy brownie base, nutty banana ice cream centre, and a final dark chocolate shell. The ice cream layer requires no ice cream machine thanks to our NesProteins Grass Fed Beef Gelatin, which allows it to set up smooth and creamy. Yields: 24 bars For the Chewy Brownie Layer: 1 c. almonds, soaked 1 hour 12 large medjool dates, pitted 3 tbsp. cacao nibs ¼ c. cacao powder 1 tsp. vanilla extract ¼ tsp. sea salt For the Nutty Banana Ice Cream Layer: ½ c. coconut cream 1 tbsp. NesProteins Grass Fed Beef Gelatin 2 ripe bananas ½ c. sunflower butter, almond butter, or peanut butter ¼ c. maple syrup 1 tsp. vanilla extract ½ tsp. sea salt For the Dark Chocolate Layer: ½ c. coconut oil ¼ c. cacao powder 2 tbsp. maple syrup Directions: Prepare the Chewy Brownie Layer by pulsing all the ingredients together in a food processor. The mixture should be sticky and hold together when pinched. Press into 24 muffin cups or a 9×13 baking dish. Prepare the Nutty Banana Ice Cream Layer by first melting together the coconut cream and NesProteins Beef Gelatin over low heat. Add to a blender, along with the bananas, sunflower butter, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and sea salt. Blend on medium speed to break up the chunks. Blend again on high to whip the mixture and ensure it’s very smooth. Caution: do not blend too long or you can start to heat the mixture and cook the bananas (not tasty). Pour the banana mix over top of Chewy Brownie Layer. If using muffin cups, leave about ¼” space at the top of each cup for the final layer. Place in the freezer for 30 minutes, or until the banana layer is no longer soft, before topping with the Dark Chocolate Layer. Prepare the Dark Chocolate Layer by combining the ingredients in a double boiler or microwave at 30 second intervals, stirring in between. Once the mixture is very smooth, pour over top of the banana ice cream layer. Move back to the freezer for 2 hours, or until very firm. Enjoy straight from the freezer and keep extras frozen.

Kombujello

Kombujello Yield: 4 servings 1/2 cup cold water 2 tablespoons Vital Proteins Beef Gelatin or powdered agar (use 1–2 tablespoons gelatin more for a firmer set) 1/2 cup sugar 4 cups flavoured kombucha 1/4 cup chopped fruit, in bite-size piece (optional) Whipped cream, for serving (optional) INSTRUCTIONS: Pour the cold water into a small saucepan. Sprinkle the NesProteins Grass Fed Beef Gelatin over the water and let rest for 5 minutes. Gelatin can be tricky to work with at first as it has a tendency to clump. Breaking up the powder as best you can while sprinkling it over the water will help to reduce clumping. Stir gently with a fork so that clumps are broken up immediately. Add the sugar to the saucepan. Stir gently over low heat until the water is slightly warmed and both the sugar and gelatin are dissolved. Remove from the heat and add the kombucha. Pour into a gelatin mold, ramekins, or an 8-inch square pan. Add the fruit (optional). Place in the refrigerator and let chill for 2 to 4 hours, until set. Cover the gelatin once it has cooled. Cut into finger sized squares or cubes and serve with a dollop of whipped cream or layer with whipped cream to make a gelatin parfait.

Pumpkin Streusel Muffins

We’ve got the perfect egg-free & gluten-free Pumpkin Streusel Muffin for you to enjoy this fall. It’s naturally sweetened with coconut sugar and molasses, and filled with pumpkin pie spice for that familiar #PSL flavor. Our Grass Fed Beef Gelatin helps to bind these muffins and keep them moist inside – no eggs needed. Yields: about 8 For the muffins: 1 c. pumpkin puree ¼ c. canned light coconut milk ¼ c. melted butter, ghee, or coconut oil ½ c. coconut sugar 1 tsp. molasses 1 tsp. vanilla extract 2 tsp. apple cider vinegar 1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice ½ tsp. sea salt 1 ½ c. blanched almond flour 3 tbsp. coconut flour 3 tbsp. ground flaxmeal 1 tbsp. NesProteins Beef Gelatin 1 tsp. baking powder ¼ tsp. baking soda For the streusel: ¼ c. whole almonds 2 tbsp. blanched almond flour 2 tsp. coconut sugar 1 tbsp. butter, ghee, or coconut oil Directions: Preheat the oven to 180 Celsius. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with cupcake liners. Add the pumpkin puree, coconut milk, melted butter, coconut sugar, molasses, vanilla extract, apple cider vinegar, pumpkin pie spice, and sea salt to a large bowl. Whisk well until smooth. Add the almond flour, coconut flour, ground flaxmeal, NesProteins Grass Fed Beef Gelatin, baking powder, and baking soda to a separate bowl. Whisk well. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix with a wooden spoon. Set aside 3 minutes to allow excess moisture to be absorbed by the flours and gelatin. Mix again vigorously to ensure everything is combined evenly. Prepare the streusel by adding the whole almonds, blanched almond flour, coconut sugar, and butter to a food processor. Pulse a few times until the almonds are broken up and the butter gets mixed in. Continue pulsing until a desired streusel texture is reached. Portion the batter into the muffin cups using a large scoop (a large ice cream scoop works well for a standard muffin pan). The scoop should be large enough to fill the muffin cups entirely. Sprinkle the streusel over the top. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until golden and a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean.
