This recipe is the easiest one you’ll ever make!
You can make healthy gummies recipe instead of eating chewy sugary candy. This recipe is great for gut health as it only contains gelatine and pure fruit juice. There are natural sugars in fruit, but it’s not refined sugar, so it’s ok in moderation.
If you’re concerned about the fructose content, then just add half fruit and half filtered water, so it dilutes the natural sugar content.
This homemade healthy gummies recipe is a healthy alternative to the store-bought, over-processed kind. Remember, those usually have a ton of salt, sugar, and other unnecessary flavor enhancements in them.
I love this healthy fruit gummies recipe because it’s any excuse to use fun and pretty molds if you have them. Or it could be a budget-friendly excuse to go shopping for more. They don’t cost very much and are worth it.

How to make Healthy Gummies with Gelatin:
Healthy GummiesCourse: SnacksCuisine: WesternDifficulty: Easy
1-liter berry juice
2 TBSP maple syrup
6 TBSP of organic, unflavoured Gelatin
- Place 1-liter berry juice* and 2 TBSP maple syrup into a saucepan.
- Heat this until just before boiling point – it needs to be hot enough for the powder to dissolve.
- Add in 6 TBSP of organic, unflavoured Gelatin – you can pick this up from any good quality health store.
- Whisk vigorously until all the Gelatin powder is dissolved.
- Once dissolved, remove from the heat.
- Using a spouted jug, pour the liquid into a silicone mold leaving a few millimeters gap at the top of each mold. This prevents the spilling of the liquid when transferred to the fridge. You can give it extra support by placing the mold tray onto a baking sheet.
- I prefer to let the liquid cool before placing it into the fridge.
- Refrigerate for 30 minutes until the Gummies are solid and no porous liquid is left. You can check this by simply giving your silicone tray a gentle nudge.
- Once they’re set, remove them from the fridge and start peeling them out one by one.
- Store in a sterilized glass container with a lid that has a rubber sealing ring. It seals in the air. You can store these in the fridge if you like for extra freshness. Not sure how long it will last though as they’re so yummy and addictive.
- This recipe makes between 12-16 units. Scale the recipe as you like, it’s flexible. And needless to say, experiment with various flavors, the kids will love it!
