We discovered that gelatin can help with tendon injuries and immediately made a runner version of jello to share with everyone. Instead of making a jello with sugar filled fruit juice, we chose Nuun hydration tablets. Low in sugar and filled with runner-friendly ingredients (magnesium, potassium, etc.), Nuun made the perfect substitution. Give this recipe a shot.
1 tube of Nuun (any flavor; we’ve used Fruit Punch and Tri Berry)
1 box (4 envelopes) of Knox Gelatine
4 cups of water
Bring 3 cups of water to a simmer, add 8 Nuun tablets, let tablets dissolve and bring Nuun mixture to a boil. Add 3 packets of Knox Gelatine to the boiling Nuun and stir until dissolved.
Dissolve 2 tablets of Nuun into 1 cup of water. Sprinkle 1 packet of Knox Gelatin over 1 cup of cold Nuun, stir until dissolved, and let stand for one minute.
Pour boiling Nuun mixture into the cold Nuun mixture. Stir constantly until all gelatin is completely dissolved.
Pour mixture into a 9×9 pan and let chill in the fridge until it firms up, about 3 hours. Cut into cubes and snack on the Nuun Jello whenever you need! Pre run, post run, Netflix binges, whenever boredom hits, it’s good for your health!
