Even though you’re following the GAPS diet, you don’t need to say goodbye to some of your favorite foods. High-quality gelatin made from healthy animals can be a nutritional powerhouse, so you can happily indulge in a piece (or more!) of this sweet, fruity, jello. Blueberries are in season in many places right now, so here’s a great way to take advantage of the low prices and fresh taste!

GAPS & Paleo Blueberry Jello
3 cups blueberries
2 cups water
1/2 cup honey
1 lemon, juiced
1/4 cup gelatin (I use this gelatin)
Boil water and blueberries in a medium-size saucepan. Remove from heat and puree with an immersion blender. Pour fruit mixture through a wire mesh strainer, using a spoon to stir it and coax all the juice to separate from the pulp. If desired, set aside the pulp to use in smoothies. Stir honey and lemon juice into the juice mixture then pour in gelatin. Use the blender to quickly but thoroughly mix gelatin into the fruit.
Pour jello into an 8×8-inch glass baking dish or jello mold. Allow it to cool, then cover it and refrigerate for 2 hours or overnight.
