A brand new year is finally here, and what better way to start it than with a few recipes that carry some great health benefits? Here are a few of our favourite Rooibos recipes that will ensure you start 2017 off right...

Sugar-free Rooibos Gummies

Rooibos health benefits are numerous. From easing insomnia, to helping eczema and even assisting in alleviating hypertension, it's no wonder so many people are adding Rooibos into their diet. These gummies are free from refined sugar, so they're a great way to lower your family's sugar intake. When you want something sweet but don't need an unhealthy sugar spike, these gummies are perfect. They are Banting friendly as well!

Ingredients

400ml Coconut milk

30ml Butter

20ml Xylitol

1/3 teaspoon Cinnamon

1 teaspoon Vanilla extract

3 Laager Rooibos teabags

60ml Cold water

45ml powdered Gelatin

Method:

  1. Heat the coconut milk, butter, xylitol, cinnamon, vanilla and rooibos teabags in a saucepan.
