all natural homemade orange juice gummies in 15 minutes


We made Natalie's nourishing orange jelly just the other week and it was a huge hit so when I saw this recipe on pinterest I knew I just had to combine the two to create a sweet treat that just so happens to be immensely more healthy than any store-bought gummy candy out there.

Here's out version of these delicious and slightly nutritious sweet gummies: 

Ingredients
3 tbs grassfed gelatin
1/3 cup orange (preferable freshly squeezed and strained) juice
3 tbs raw honey 

Directions
Combine all three ingredients together in a saucepan on low heat until the gelatin has completely dissolved and the liquid is smooth
Pour into non-stick decorative ice cube trays
Place in the freezer for 10-12 minutes
Remove, pop out and enjoy!

We are clearly on the same wave length.....this is on my things to do as preparation for Olly's adventure race snacks :) Hadn't planned on adding the honey, guessing it may take away the tartness from oj.....going to give a go! thanks for linking to me :) xx

Do you think you could use other juices besides orange? Strawberry, peach, watermellon, pear, etc...

Meagan said...

Yes, as long as you starin te juices so that they are not pulpy, seedy or gritty. Obviously reconstituted or sugar based juices aren't as healthy as freshly squeezed. But they all work. X

Are these storeable at all?

Meagan said...

I;d keep them in an airlock bag or container... not sure how long they'd last. Ours barely last a day! You could also refrigerate or even freeze them if you want to have them over a long period. xo m.

could you pour out into a cookie tray, freeze for the alloted time and then use mini cutters instead?

Meagan W said...

Yes, Brittany I am pretty sure you could do that. Maybe add a touch more gelatine to make sure it's not to runny for the final cutting. xx m.
