MANGO-LUSCIOUS Mango & Cream Gummies (AIP)

Mangoes and Cream Gummies

This post originally appeared on Australia Day back in early 2016. I thought that it might be time for a wee revamp as we head towards the cooler months here in Sydney (and the northern hemisphere heads into spring!)

Since I first posted, I’ve honed my gummy-making skills. You might even call me a bit of a ‘gummy whisperer’ now…

Today I bring you a re-photographed version and slightly improved recipe. Don’t worry – these babies are still SUPER easy to whip up!

(Even though it’s not Australia Day, I’ve left the copy the same, for old times sake!)

HAPPY AUSTRALIA DAY!

Do you ever have those moments where it feels like the universe is pushing you in a certain direction? I’ve just had one of those…

You already know, thanks to my recent giveaway (now closed) that I’m seriously impressed with the recent collaboration between Alaena Haber and Sarah Ballantyne – ‘The Healing Kitchen‘ cookbook. I made their Mango Coconut Gummies recipe and kind of, sort of became mildly obsessed.

As a result, I’ve been making gummies like they’re going out of fashion.

It all started with these babies…

The Healing Kitchen Mango Gummies

Then, on my weekly Sunday circuit around Centennial Park, I was listening to the delightful Stacy Toth on the most recent The Paleo View podcast, and she was rhapsodising about the joys of mangoes and how they just might be her very favourite fruit…

Come to Australia, Stacy – the mangoes are to die for!

And, that got me thinking about when I first came to Australia, years before I really started understanding the connection between my diet and lifestyle choices and my health. Back then, I fell in love with the Weis’ Mango & Ice Cream Bar

Ohmygod – so good! (The really super flash ones even have roasted macadamia nuts in them!)

Of course, these puppies definitely no longer feature on the menu here at JFC

Not exactly AIP-compliant.

But! Since it is Australia Day. And since I associate mangoes with Australia. Specifically Kensington Pride mangoes. I thought some sort of AIP-friendly mango number was in order.

So, I did a little experimenting and…

the MANGO-LUSCIOUS Mango & Cream Gummy was born!

Mango and Cream Gummies

This little beauty is full of mango flavour AND it gives you that mouth-feel of dairy (without the actual dairy!), so its pretty bloody good.

These look delicious! Will have to try. We’re just getting back into the gummies over here now that Matthew can finally tolerate more carbohydrates. They are his #1 strategy for preventing nail psoriasis. And my #1 strategy for keeping my skin from succumbing to gravity as I advance through my 40s~!

You know, that’s so interesting Petra. I think my skin is my best barometer for when I let my diet slip a little.

Good thing I have an excuse to eat gummies 🙂

Love Weis Bars, so am going to give these a go.

Wonder if anyone knows how to make an AIP Vegemite substitute.

I have hashimotos and live in Wollongong. Would love to attend your next AIP picnic. Are you having one soon?

Hey Juliette from the ‘Gong!

Let me know what you think of the mango & cream gummies…

Now THERE’S a question! – a vegemite alternative!

We’d love to have you at the next picnic. I always post details on my Facebook page and in the local Australian AIP groups.
