PIN Homemade Healthy Gummies
2 words for you: HEALTHY. GUMMIES.
Yep. I went there and I am SO EXCITED ABOUT IT.
It started when I wanted Mr. FFF to eat more gelatin, since it’s REALLY good for your gut and he has the worst gut known to man. So, he tried to drink some and almost died because it was very not delicious.
So what does a food blogging wife do? MAKE IT YUMMY. Which, naturally, means “make it CANDY”
Seriously so pumped with how these turned out. Now he’s eating gelatin on the ‘reg and also feeling like he’s eating dessert and I am calling that a major WIN/WIN!
Are Healthy Gummies Vegan Friendly?
If you’ve been around the blog for a while now, you’ll know that I love me a good vegan recipe. I’ve got loads of vegan sweets on the recipe like Vegan Gluten Free Banana Bread, Vegan Shortbread cookies and EVEN some rich and delish dairy free vegan caramel sauce! THESE natural gummies are healthy and have no refined sugar in them, however they aren’t classified as vegan as I use beef gelatin. If you want to test out this recipe with plant based gelatin, go for it and let me know how it goes! I just can’t guarantee it will work the same way as I have not tried it myself!
Are Healthy Gummy Bears Easy to make?
I love a tasty treat. I love a tasty treat that’s also GOOD for you! But the BEST kind of treat by far is one that’s delicious, healthy for your body, AND easy to make! You’ve hit the jackpot with these homemade gummies I have for you today because they check all three boxes. You’ll be enjoying them in just a few simple steps. They’re also easy to make ahead of time and store for when the craving hits!
This recipe is so simple, and the ingredients list is not complicated at all- there are only 3 ingredients needed! Talk about an easy treat that isn’t too finicky or difficult. To make this amazing healthy gummies recipe, you will need:
- Orange Juice (not from concentrate)
- Beef Gelatin
- Honey to bring the gummies to your desired sweetness
How to make Homemade Healthy Gummies
Pour the orange juice into a small pot. Bring it to high heat and allow it to warm up until it comes to a simmer.
Once the orange juice is simmering, add the beef gelatin and whisk, continuously, until it dissolves completely. Next, add the honey if you are using it, and whisk it in until dissolved.
Pour the solution into a gummy bear mold or other mold of your choice. A small sided container will also work if you don’t have any gummy molds!
Pop your molds/container in the fridge until set, which should take an hour or 2.
Remove the gummies from the molds, or slice into bite sized pieces if you used a container. Serve them up and enjoy!
Healthy Gummies FAQ
- How to Store Homemade Gummies
Store the gummies in an airtight container in your fridge. These gummies will keep the perfect consistency and hold together well if kept in the fridge, so be sure to do so! If they are kept at room temperature, they will melt.
2. How long do Gummies keep for?
These tasty orange juice gummies will last for up to 5 days in a container in the fridge. They’re great for a make-ahead protein rich treat!
3. Can I use other Fruit Juices?
If you don’t have orange juice on hand, or it’s simply not your favorite, feel free to substitute whatever kind of juice your heart desires! I recommend apple juice, cranberry juice, or pineapple juice; the possibilities are ENDLESS!
Other Healthy High Protein Snacks
- 1 Cup Orange juice (not from concentrate)
- 1 1/2 Tbsp Beef gelatin
- 1-2 Tbsp Honey (depending how sweet you like gummies)
- Place the orange juice in a small pot on high heat until it simmers.
- Add the gelatin while whisking until it's dissolved. Then, add the honey if using.
- Pour into gummy bear molds (use an eye dropper for less mess!) OR pour into a small sided container.
- Place in the fridge until set - about 1-2 hours.
- Remove from molds, or slice, and DEVOUR!
