  1. Crazy how something so comforting as jello is actually good for you! Mind you, i wouldn’t buy the store bought brand with all the sugar (or aspartame), coloring and conservation agents. However, I was wondering about the gelatin. Is good old orange-boxed Knox gelatin as good as the brand you buy? Is it just a question of being organic?

    1. Most commercial gelatin is sourced from factory-farmed animals. Those of us in the natural food community try to avoid supporting companies that use factory-farmed animals for the contaminants that they’re fed and subjected to, the stressful conditions that they live in, and the actual processing. I’m not sure how clean these gelatin sources are, so I hesitate to use it as a healing food.

      That said, it’s a vast improvement on the technicolor varieties of premade gelatin desserts at the grocery store. 🙂

      1. Right. And agar would have different properties all together, so not as much of a healing food as gelatin? I’m sure I can find organic gelatin at the health food store or even grass-fed, I’ll take a look! 🙂

          1. Actually, it’s made from an algae 🙂 I just checked, its 80% fiber, so apart from feeling really full after eating this, it wouldn’t have much healing properties! Great as diet food though I hear! We use agar in the lab, great for the beasties to grow!

    1. I am not a fan of stevia unless it is used in whole leaf form (not processed like liquid or white powder from the grocery store). I also caution against using it unless you know how the body responds to non-calorie sweeteners.

      If you’re comfortable using it, it can definitely be substituted. You can also substitute half of the tea with juice or use a fruity tea like rooibos or rose hips.

    1. I use loose tea and vary the amount based on our symptoms. A standard dose for many herbs is 1 teaspoon of dried herb to one cup of water. Steep time can be anywhere from 5 minutes to 1 hour. A stronger tincture would be steeped overnight.

  2. Just clarifying… Do you remove the loose-leaf tea before blending with immersion blender? Thanks!

  3. Try Great Lakes brand geletin…grass fed and organic. The red and orange cans will make geletin, the green can does NOT gel (but it’s great for smoothies!).

  4. I do not usually comment on blogs (I know, not very nice), but I cannot WAIT to try my blueberry tea in this recipe! I am a true tea snob (only drinking loose leaf) and I LOVE certain fruity herbal teas. This sounds AMAZING and so much better than the icky stuff from the store bought gelatin. My kids are going to be happy that I am willing to make gello more often.

  5. I just bought a rooibos lemonade herbal tea tonight that I am looking forward to using to try this recipe this weekend. Also picked up a lavender green tea.
