Healthy Candy Corn Jello

There are two kinds of people in this world.

Those that like candy corn and those that don’t.

I’m definitely one that does not like actual candy corn. If you are a person who does like it (what is wrong with you???)  please enlighten me, what is it that you like about it?

Even though I don’t like candy corn, I do appreciate a good aesthetic.  And if I can make something cute or pretty AND healthy then I’ve hit the jackpot.

This recipe most definitely does not taste like candy corn however it does look similar.  With its orange and yellow layers then topped with whipped cream it’s so cute you’ll stare at it for a good long while before eating it. No? Maybe that’s just me…

If you celebrate Halloween you can make mini versions and have them at your party.  And if you don’t celebrate Halloween you can just make them because they are healthy and have veggies in them!

Not only do they have veggies in the them, they also have grass fed gelatin.  I’ve talked about it before and you’ll probably eventually get sick of me talking about it but I love my gelatin.

Reasons I Love Gelatin:

  • contains essential amino acids needed to help repair the body
  • promotes gut health
  • is relatively high in protein
  • protects joints
  • improves skin health
  • and so much more!

If you’d like to read more about gelatin in depth this is a great article. If you’d like to buy some, this is the brand I love and stand by!

The other thing I love about this recipe is that it is naturally sweetened with just a little bit of honey and has no food dyes! Plus it comes together in a jif. The longest part is definitely the waiting for it to set up in the fridge.
