Pomegranate Jello for The Body Ecology Diet

013This is a perfect breakfast treat for a hot summer morning. It is also a sneaky way to get gelatin into you or the kids. I created this jello when I was on stage 1 of the Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D) to heal a chronic case of yeast overgrowth. My kids were on board too and so this mom had to get creative in all the food departments.

This is especially true with fruit for B.E.D. protocol avoids all fruit unless it is acidic like lemon, lime, acai, sour green apple, black currant, cranberry, or pomegranate. You can substitute most any unsweetened juice for the pomegranate used here.

Tips & Tricks

  • Make a gummier jello by adding up to 4 Tbs. of gelatin – also known as ‘finger jello’
  • For a vegan option, substitute 2 Tbs. agar-agar flakes (or 2 tsp. agar-agar powder) for the gelatin. Agar needs to be brought to a gentle simmer for 3 minutes to dissolve properly.
  • Use cranberry concentrate instead of pomegranate.
  • Top with cultured cream and soaked seeds for a delicious breakfast.
  • On stage 2 of BED? Try adding in blueberries, blackberries, or other slightly acid fruits.

Top with Probiotic Cultured Cream
