Instant Paleo Pumpkin Pudding (egg and dairy free)

This instant paleo pumpkin pudding (egg and dairy free) made with gelatin is so delicious!

Gelatin- So many benefits!

I have been messing around with gelatin a lot lately trying to make egg free pancakes, but I have not mastered it yet. I already drink tons of broth each day for my gelatin (see easy recipe). I have learned so much about using powdered gelatin as an egg substitute and have found that the great thing is that it is an instant thickener!

Gelatin is so great for healing the gut and helping with food cravings because it is full of anti-inflammatory amino acids. It also provides collagen for preventing wrinkles and reducing cellulite. Gelatin also helps protein digestion. This brand is tasteless it works perfectly in smoothies and shakes. It has 12 grams of protein in two tablespoons too!

    nothing comes up when I try to find out the brand of grass fed beef gelatin…what brand is it? I would love to try this. My 42 year old daughter was one day diagnosed with severe colitis and for real the next day they removed all but 8 inches of her colon….she has had nothing but problems since and is going to see a specialist and more tests next week. I keep telling her she needs to change the way she eats and she could probably help herself (she has a very unsupportive husband)…
