Craving for something sweet? Rather than reaching for a processed snack, try making these quick and easy nutrient-dense chewy raspberry jellies. The Beauty Chef gives this recipe for these yummy probiotic treats a boost with COLLAGEN Inner Beauty Boost. We're always down for a guilt-free way to nourish our bodies and help support smoother, healthier skin!

 The Beauty Chef COLLAGEN Inner Beauty Boost is a scientifically formulated bio-fermented probiotic elixir that helps to increase collagen production and cultivate a smoother complexion from the inside out.

Gelatine gives you the vitamin boost that promotes youthful skin, healthy hair, nails, bone and joint health, as well as digestion and muscle recovery.

• Raspberries are not only delicious but are also rich in vitamins, antioxidants and fibre. They contain a high concentration of ellagic acid, which helps to stop the growth of cancer cells and eliminates the progress of cancers.

The Beauty Chef Chewy Raspberry Jellies recipe

  • 1 1/ 2 cup (375ml) cold water
  • 4 tablespoons grass-fed powdered gelatine
  • 2 cups (240g) fresh or frozen raspberries
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 3/ 4 cup (180ml) The Beauty Chef's COLLAGEN Inner Beauty Boost

    Pour 1 1/ 4 cup (310ml) of the water in a small bowl and sprinkle the gelatine over the surface in an even layer. Set aside for 10 minutes, to soften.

    Combine the raspberries, remaining water, maple syrup and lemon juice in a small saucepan. Gently simmer for 5 minutes, until berries soften and release their juice. Strain through a fine mesh sieve, using a spoon to press and scrape the raspberry pulp to ensure you get all of the juice.

    Add the softened gelatine to the hot raspberry juice and stir until dissolved. Set aside to cool to room temperature.

    Add the collagen and stir to combine.

    Pour into three ice cube trays or novelty moulds. *Alternatively mixture can be set in a small tray and cut into cubes.

    Refrigerate for at least 1 hour, or until completely set.

    To un-mould, dip base of the trays into boiling water to loosen. Using your fingertips gently pull the jellies away from the edge of the moulds, to release the seal. Invert to turn out the jellies.

        Note: store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.

        These gummies are great for adults but kids will love them too. Let us know how you got on with this recipe!
