We are often in need of a good, smooth, and creamy cheese, whether for a particular recipe or simply on its own! Commercial Velveeta cheese is stuffed with odd ingredients that are detrimental to your health. This homemade Velveeta cheese is made with gelatin, a health-boosting ingredient, and tastes even better than its inspiration. You can enjoy this fresh recipe without cringing at what’s inside!
“This weekend I made Velveeta. Maybe that’s not what you were expecting to hear. But I did it, and I did it with less than 5 ingredients, and only using real, whole food ingredients. Real Velveeta, of course, isn’t even cheese, it’s a “Pasteurized Prepared Cheese Product.” The fact that it’s found on a shelf next to the pasta rather than in a refrigerator with other dairy products has always disturbed me. So, a real food diet means goodbye Velveeta. But you have to admit, it melts like nothing else, and that’s why we all love it.
In my Homemade Velveeta, I got to use one of my favorite ingredients: grass-fed gelatin. I talk about grass-fed gelatin on my blog and Facebook page quite often. I’ve used it in my recipes forHomemade Fruit Snacks and Real Deal Marshmallows. Grass-fed gelatin is a wonderful source of natural collagen, which means it makes hair, skin, and nails healthy. It’s also good for a healthy gut; when you hear people talking about bone broth for gut healing, the natural gelatin in that broth is one of the main things they’re after. I love finding ways to incorporate grass-fed gelatin!”
