My mornings always start with the same thing- a lovely cup of matcha latte and a book. every day, without fail. Matcha gives me that morning pep we all know and love from caffeine, but without tea anxious feelings id often get with tea or coffee. Its fresh, delicious, so good paired with some of my fav herbs (like moringa) and loaded with antioxidants.

So… making a matcha latte gummy was really a no brainer.

Delicious. Fresh. Gut healing. Loaded with antioxidants.

  • Gelatin You can use my code JADE10 here to get this gelatine here that I use and recommend.
  • Coconut milk– choose one that tastes delicious, I love this brand.
  • Good quality matcha– choose the best quality matcha you can find. matcha varies so much in flavour and a good quality matcha will be vibrant green (not yellow), sweet, grassy and not harshly bitter.
  • Filtered water
  • Vanilla– extract or beans
  • Pure maple syrup. You can omit if preferred.

Matcha latte gummiesMethod

THERMOMIX and MAGIMIX directions

  1. Add water into your bowl, then sprinkle gelatin over the top. Sit for 2 minutes.
  2. Add all remaining ingredients.
  3. Blend for 4 minutes on low speed (speed 3 for a magi mix and thermomix) at 70c for 4 minutes.
  4. Blend for 1 minute at 70c at the top speed (speed 18 for magi, speed 10 for thermomix).
  5. Pour into moulds or a small tray lined with baking paper. Set in the fridge for 1 hour.
  6. Remove from moulds then store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days. These are freezer friendly too.

CONVENTIONAL directions

  1. Add coconut milk to a saucepan and place over low-med heat. Heat until you reach 60-70 C. It is important that you do not reach a simmer or boil. If you do not have a candy thermometer then watch closely- as soon as the top of the coconut milk starts to shimmer and move around, and you see tiny bubbles forming on the surface, turn off heat.
  2. Meanwhile, add gelatine and matcha into the bottom of a 3L or larger jug (with a pouring lip preferably). Mix, then top with water. Stand for 1 minute. This is called blooming and allows the gelatin to absorb the liquid and prevent lumps in your recipe.
  3. Add vanilla and maple into the matcha jug. Mix everything together, then immediately pour the warm/hot coconut milk in. Use a fork or whisk to combine well.
  4. Pour into moulds or a small tray lined with baking paper. Set in the fridge for 1 hour.
  5. Remove from moulds then store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days. These are freezer friendly too.

Choosing gelatin

Gelatin can be a great addition to add into your diet as a gut healing food. Gelatin is made up of three amino acids that support the healing of the gut, in particular the cell junctions of the gut wall. This is especially helpful for ‘leaky gut’ or hyper permeability, which can be the underlying cause of many issues within the body but particularly allergies, intolerances, skin complaints and autoimmune disorders.

But which gelatine to choose?

While the supermarket may offer the cheapest alternative it is in your (and the planets) best interest to source gelatin that is organic, grass fed, grass finished and traceable. Ensure you read the label (look for 100% gelatine that is free from any other additives).

Here are a few good choices;

Description

These healthy matcha latte gummies are the perfect on the go snack for matcha lovers, providing a little hit of gut healing gelatin and antioxidant rich matcha.


Ingredients

Scale

4 Tbsp gelatin powder (see blog post for best options)

125ml (1/2 cup) water

24 tsp good quality matcha (more if you like a strong matcha flavour)

2 Tbsp (40ml) pure maple syrup

1 tsp vanilla powder or extract

400ml can coconut milk


Instructions

THERMOMIX and MAGIMIX directions

  1. Add water into your bowl, then sprinkle gelatin over the top. Sit for 2 minutes.
  2. Add all remaining ingredients.
  3. Blend for 4 minutes on low speed (speed 3 for a magi mix and thermomix) at 70c for 4 minutes.
  4. Blend for 1 minute at 70c at the top speed (speed 18 for magi, speed 10 for thermomix).
  5. Pour into moulds or a small tray lined with baking paper. Set in the fridge for 1 hour.
  6. Remove from moulds then store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days. These are freezer friendly too.

CONVENTIONAL directions

  1. Add coconut milk to a saucepan and place over low-med heat. Heat until you reach 60-70 C. It is important that you do not reach a simmer or boil. If you do not have a candy thermometer then watch closely- as soon as the top of the coconut milk starts to shimmer and move around, and you see tiny bubbles forming on the surface, turn off heat.
  2. Meanwhile, add gelatine and matcha into the bottom of a 3L or larger jug (with a pouring lip preferably). Mix, then top with water. Stand for 1 minute. This is called blooming and allows the gelatin to absorb the liquid and prevent lumps in your recipe.

  5. Remove from moulds then store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days. These are freezer friendly too.

Note; using different brands of coconut milk will vary teh results of this recipe. A much thicker or much thinner coconut milk will mean a thicker or thinner matcha latte gummy. This is easily fixed! Gummies can be melted down so you can adjust the texture. To do so:

  1. Place the gummies into a heatproof bowl. Set over a saucepan of simmering water. Heat gently until melted. Add 1 Tbsp gelatine in the gummies are too soft. Add 1/2 cup liquid if they are too firm. Simply pour and set as described above.
  2. If using a thermomix add gummies to the bowl and set at a medium speed, 70c until melted. Add 1/2 cup liquid if they are too firm. Simply pour and set as described above.

Notes

  • Choose the best quality matcha you can afford. A good quality matcha will be vibrant green, sweet, grassy and pleasantly bitter. Avoid yellow coloured matcha as you will have a bitter result.
  • Choose full fat coconut milk with as little additives as possible. I like this one.
