What Makes This Recipe So Good?
- First off, this recipe is so easy that kids will love helping you make it too!
- Secondly, this recipe only requires 10 minutes of hands-on time which makes it great when you want to prepare something fun but do not have very much time.
- Third, these gummies store really well which means you can make a big batch and keep them in the fridge for weeks.
- This recipe is naturally refined sugar free, paleo, gluten free, and dairy free. This recipe can also be made keto or low carb friendly if you use vegetable juice and omit the sweeteners.
- The gelatin in this recipe is good for you! Gelatin has been proven to help with joints, hair and skin.
- This recipe reminds me so much of my Homemade Healthy Jello recipe on my blog which is one of my favorites!
- These homemade gummy bears are a great healthier alternative as they are not loaded with sugar like most store bought brands are.
- Juice-Any kind of juice will work but I do prefer freshly squeezed juice over store bought juice. If you do buy store bought juice make sure you are buying juice without any added sugar. If you are making your own juice, I like to use this juicer. We use it all of the time to make my husband his very favorite Carrot Apple Ginger Juice. For a lower carb diet or the keto diet I suggest using a vegetable based juice-like celery or broccoli juice. You can always add some ginger to spice it up.
- Gelatin-Gelatin is what makes gummies, gummies! I love Vital Protein’s brand. I cannot attest to other brands as I have only tried Vital Proteins.
- Maple syrup-This is my go to sweetener for these homemade gummies. If you are doing the keto diet or following a lower carb diet, omit the sweetener.
How To Make:
- Step 1:
- First, place your juice and maple syrup in a saucepan and bring to a boil.
- Step 2:
- Sprinkle in your gelatin slowly while whisking continuously. This will prevent any gelatin clumps from forming.
- Step 3:
- Add the gelatin and juice mixture to the gummy molds, ensuring that you do not overflow them. You can use the little dropper the molds come with to help with this.
- Step 4:
- Place the gummies in the fridge for at minimum 30 minutes.
Frequently Asked Recipe Questions:
What Kind Of Molds Should I Use?
- I love these silicone gummy bear molds for homemade gummies. They are super easy to use and clean which is the key!
How Long Do Homemade Gummies Last?
- These gummies will last up to a month in the fridge as long as they are sealed in an airtight container.
Can I Substitute The Maple Syrup For Honey?
- Absolutely! Just note that honey tastes different so the honey substitution will be more subtle and the maple syrup flavor will be a little stronger.
- Be sure to sprinkle in your gelatin to avoid it from clumping!
- Secondly, allow your molds enough time to chill in the fridge or they will fall apart when they come out.
