Dark Chocolate Gelatin Pudding

Gelatin is the protein formed after the slow simmering of skin, bones, and cartilage of cattle or chickens, etc. Broths containing gelatin have traditionally been used in health conscious cultures for thousands of years as the foundation to health. Many clients tell me they are too busy to make broth or too stressed to attempt to try to make it, or they’re turned off at the notion of dealing with bones; so, I want to share a great gelatin product (by Great Lakes) that is flavorless and is derived from grass-fed cows. Personally, I still think homemade broth is by far the best but this gelatin is an excellent substitute. The gelatin here is very healthy and can be used as a natural thickener for soups and smoothies. The following recipe uses gelatin in a creamy and delicious pudding which makes getting this super food fun and satisfying. Me and my husband absolutely love it!
SIDENOTE: Please do not use the popular store-bought gelatin! Use the one I’m recommending HERE.

Benefits of Gelatin:

  • Contains easy to digest calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, silicon, sulphur and trace minerals
  • Speeds healing from seasonal cold or flu
  • Builds health bone matrix
  • Provides minerals for strong teeth
  • Supports joints, cartilage and tendons because it contains Chondroitin and Glucosamine
  • Fights cellulite
  • Prevents wrinkles
  • Increases muscle mass
  • Speeds metabolism
  • Heals the intestinal lining preventing chronic disease (e.g. leaky gut that leads to autoimmune disease!)
  • Supportive for over-stressed thyroid and adrenal glands
  • Broth with gelatin makes small portions of meat very filling which saves money
