NingXia Red Jellies

Need a perfect on-the-go snack for your kids? Try making these yummy NingXia Red jellies! They are the perfect replacement for snacks that may be filled with synthetic coloring or flavors.

Here’s what you need

  • 1 cup NingXia Red
  • 1½ teaspoons agar powder (vegan gelatin alternative)
  • 4 teaspoons honey
  • 3 drops Grapefruit Vitality essential oil
  • 3 drops Lime Vitality essential oil (or Vitality oils of your choice, we just love citrus Vitality oils!)
  • Silicon molds

To make

  1. Combine the NingXia Red, agar powder, and honey in a saucepan. Mix with a metal spoon until fully dissolved and heat on medium-high.
  2. Once boiling, remove from heat immediately and stir in the essential oils. Taste for sweetness. The mixture should be almost too sweet, since the flavors will mellow during cooling.
  3. Pour the mixture into silicon molds.
  4. Let your molds cool in the refrigerator for at least an hour until set.
  5. Keep leftovers in the fridge or a cool place.
  6. Enjoy!
