Antioxidant Rich Berry Gummies
I love these gummies as a protein-filled snack for growing kids.
Servings: 48 gummies
- 3 cups frozen organic mixed berries I get the big bags of frozen organic at Costco. Since berries are a heavily pesticided crop I would opt for organic.
- ¼ cup water
- Optional ¼ cup raw honey My kids are used to just the fruit, but if I am making these for other kids that might be used to sweeter food then I add it. If you have little ones I would leave it out and keep their palates used to just the fruit
- ¼ cup grassfed gelatin
Put the berries and mwater in a small sauce pan and bring to a simmer. Stir for a few minutes while everything melts and warms.
Turn off the heat and add the raw honey. Stir to combine/melt.
Put the warmed berry mixture in a food processor or blender, add the gelatin, and blend completely.
Pour into your silicone molds (this amount fills about 48 slots in my molds) and refrigerate. I like to stick them in the freezer to make this part go faster – only takes about 15 minutes or so! The firmer, almost frozen gummies pop out of the molds nicer/easier too!
After the mixture gels up, you can pop out the gummies – I just push the silicone mold “inside-out” – works great!
Store your gummies in the fridge. They keep fine in the lunchbox without an ice pack though!
