And that means it’s watermelon season. Watermelon is great for providing some much needed summer hydration and loads of disease fighting antioxidants.
This is a fun recipe to make to get the benefits of watermelon and to get your daily dose of gelatin in! Gelatin is extremely beneficial to your hair, skin, nails and joints but most importantly to your gut health. It’s also high in muscle-building protein!

Eat a couple of these gummies daily for beautiful hair, skin, and nails! Your gut will be happy too!
- 1 cup strained watermelon juice (blend watermelon chunks and a splash of water in a blender)
- 1/4 cup grass fed gelatin
- 6-8 drops liquid stevia (can substitute with 2-3 tsp raw honey or maple syrup)
Directions: Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan and gently heat over low heat. Whisk for a few minutes until everything has dissolved and is smooth. Pour into a mold (like this one) and let set in the fridge for 30 minutes. Can be stored in an airtight container in fridge for two weeks.
Note: I love the Great Lakes brand for it’s clean reputation. Make sure you get the gelatin in the red/orange can and not the green can. The green can is cold water soluble, therefore it does not thicken or “gelatinize”. <——- That might not be a word.
