These are easy, healthy and delicious! I like to blend my own fruit puree using frozen fruit that’s been thawed. Try any combination of fruits; in this variation I used strawberry puree and apricot juice. I only add sweetener if I’m using tart fruit and juice. You can use gummy molds, though it’s not necessary. I use two Non-Stick Silicone Bread Pans and then slice the gummies into small squares or let the kids use small cookie cutters to press shapes.
Total Time:15 minutes
2/3 cup fruit puree
1/3 cup 100% fruit juice
8 teaspoons grass-fed gelatin
2 teaspoons honey (optional)
Make your fruit puree by blending it until smooth. Transfer the puree to a medium or large measuring cup with a spout.
Pour the juice into a small pot over medium-low heat. Add the gelatin while whisking constantly, bringing the mixture to just below a simmer so that it is warm, not scorching. You want the gelatin to completely dissolve, and depending on the juice you’re using, the mixture will be milky or clear.
Pour the juice mixture into the puree and whisk to combine.
Pour the gummy mixture into the bread pans (or molds) and transfer to the freezer for 15 minutes. Set a timer!
After 15 minutes, pull the gummies from the freezer and cut as desired.
Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
