Easy Homemade Gut Gummies
A simple recipe for homemade gummies using gut friendly gelatin with three kid friendly flavours; raspberry gummies, blueberry & apple gummies & mango gummies.
- 1/2 cup
raspberry puree defrosted from frozen
- 1/2 cup water (or coconut water or apple juice)
- 2 tbsp honey
- 6 drops monk fruit concentrate (or equivalent natural sweetener)
- 2 tbsp gelatin powder
Blueberry & Apple Gummies
To make the mango, raspberry and blueberry gummies, puree fruit with liquid (coconut water, water or apple juice).
Place pureed fruit into a small sauce pan. Sprinkle over with gelatin powder and allow to sit for 5 minutes for the gelatin to bloom. Whisk over low-medium heat until gelatin is dissolved. Do not let it boil.
Pour the mixture into moulds and place in fridge to set for 1-2 hours or firm to touch and easily remove from moulds.
Remove from moulds and store in an aright container in fridge.
You can use fresh or frozen fruit to make these. If using frozen, defrost to room temperature first. For the berry flavoured gummies, frozen seems to add a sweeter flavour. You can use fresh but adjust sweetness to taste with extra honey if needed.
You can use any favourite fruit for the puree (just not kiwi!) such as strawberries, peach, pear or watermelon & lime juice.
In this recipe we have used whole fruit, to encourage kids to consume the benefits of whole fruit vs just the juice. If your little one is sensitive to texture you can strain the pureed fruit first to remove tiny seeds etc. If you have just started introducing gummies to your children you can start with 100% natural juice or 1/2 juice and 1/2 whole fruit puree to begin. Using apple juice in place of water will also add a familiar natural sweetness to the gummies.
