Heart Gummy Snacks
Valentine’s Day is just a month away, and we are so excited to bring you some Valentine inspiration!
These delicious, homemade gummies are made for both kids and adults. In previous recipes, I’ve utilized gelatin packets, but for this one, we tried @vitalproteins beef gelatin, and they turned out perfect! And no, you don’t taste any beef in these…the gelatin is still tasteless! An added benefit is the collagen that these gummies provide.
I’m looking closely at the ingredient list for a popular fruit snack, the tiny package contains 17+ ingredients including, corn syrup, sugar, and food dye. This recipes calls for just 3 simple ingredients, no added sugar, and no food dye.
⭐️ 1 cup- Mixed fruit- fresh or frozen. If using frozen, thaw before making.
⭐️ 1 tablespoon Honey
⭐️ 3 tablespoons @vitalproteins Beef Gelatin
⭐️ Purée your fruit in a food processor.
⭐️ Add to a small cooking pot and warm on medium-low heat.
⭐️ Once warm, add honey and mix.
⭐️ Next, add 1 tablespoon at a time of the beef gelatin, and stir until combined.
⭐️ Once all of the gelatin is added, remove from heat.
⭐️ Use a dropper or syringe to put mix into gummy molds of choice.
⭐️ Refrigerate for at least an hour before eating.
🌟I also added a hint of lemon juice to our mix.
🌟Some recipes call for straining the fruit, but I used all of the fruit, not just the juice for this recipe.
🌟Most gummy kits come with a dropper. It’s so much easier to use a medicine syringe to fill the small molds!
🌟 These will last for up to a week in an airtight container in the fridge. They are also fine to eat at room temperature, but won’t last as long.
We can’t wait for you to try these!
