Ingredients:
  • 1 cup water
  • 3 scoops Onnit Mineral Electrolytes, lime flavor
  • ¼ tsp. of each color, vegetable-based colorants*
  • 4 tbsp. grass-fed beef gelatin**
  • Bug silicone molds
Directions:
  1. In a mixing bowl, add ⅓ cup of cold water and stir in 3 scoops of Onnit Mineral Electrolytes. It will foam at first, but it will settle after a minute or so. Mixing the electrolytes with cold water prior to adding hot water is key, so don’t skip this step.
  2. Bring the remaining water (⅔ cup) to a simmer, not a boil. Remove from heat and slowly stir it in the electrolyte mixture, adding the gelatin in between pours.
  3. Divide the gelatin-electrolyte mixture into three mixing bowls. Add ¼ tsp. of each vegetable-based colorant to each bowl and stir. We used red, yellow and blue.
  4. Pour the dyed mixtures into molds and refrigerate for 3 hours.
  5. Once firm, remove from molds and store in airtight container for up to 5 days.
