Did you know you can actually make your own fruit snacks? Did you know that it’s really not even that hard and it only takes a few ingredients?

fruit and vege gummiesWith a young child running around, I think about snacks a lot more than I used to. Every chance I get to sneak in a healthy snack here and there is one that I embrace. When I can offer him snacks that I feel great about, it makes it even better.

They’re just as fun to make as they are to eat – especially if your little one is helping you out in the kitchen. I’ve found that any time I involve my son in cooking, he’s more likely to try whatever we’ve made together.

Ingredients
  • For The Orange Gummy:
  • 2 Cooled Cooked Carrots
  • 1 Cup Pure Orange Juice
  • ½ Cup Honey
  • ⅓ Cup Gelatin
  • For The Green Gummy:
  • 1 Handful of Spinach
  • 1 Cup Pure Apple Juice
  • ½ Cup Honey
  • ⅓ Cup Gelatin
  • For The Purple Gummy:

  • ½ Cup Blueberries
  • ½ Cup Apple Juice
  • ½ Cup Honey

Instructions
  1. Put all your ingredients into a blender (- the Gelatin) and pulse until all is combined.
  2. Put your mixture into a sauce pan.
  3. Add your ⅓ cup of gelatin.
  4. Let it sit for a minute or two so the gelatin can suck up the liquid. (This will help prevent a clumpy or gritty finished product!)
  5. Turn on the heat to low to medium till the gelatin dissolves.
  6. Turn off heat and let sit for a few minutes to cool down.
  7. Use a syringe and suck up your juice and push out into your gummy mold.
  8. Let sit for 5 minutes so it sets and then put in fridge for two hours. Remove from molds and enjoy
Notes
