Strawberry Lemonade Gummies

Strawberry Lemonade Gummies

My kids go crazy for gummies, even these lemon ones which are not even really sweet!  And I can sit back and watch them eat it with a smile knowing they’re filling up with grass fed gelatin which is great for their little guts and growing bodies.  My daughter is gluten intolerant which may be associated with a leaky gut.  Gelatin is a great superfood for healing the gut lining!  On to the fun part…

  1. Pour strawberry mixture, lemon juice and honey into a pan on low/medium heat.
  2. Mix well until warm (not hot as it will kill the awesome probiotic properties of the raw honey!).
  3. Add gelatin and mix well until dissolved.
  4. Pour contents of pan into a cup with a spout (like a measuring cup).
  5. Pour mixture into candy molds.
  6. Place in freezer for 15 minutes.
  7. Enjoy!

    Great recipe! The only thing is that 9T of gelatin is way too much. I only used 4, which worked very well. I am going to try 3T next time to make it even gummier. Adding some ginger and mint will be so delicious!

    Thanks for this recipe, it was a hit at my son’s birthday party!
    I only added 3 tbsp of grass fed gelatin (the package days 1tbsp will gell 1 pint of liquid), and they tasted amazing!
    I mixed it with an immersion blender, and I wonder if I can just dissolve the gelatin in the lemon juice first…
    I will try with other fruits as well, and I bought a few different molds for this, as my son loved it 🙂

    Has anyone or do you know if I could mix the gelatin in before I heat it? I don’t have a way to mix it smooth. And cold gelatin mixes very well.

    I was looking at recipes that use juice, honey, and gelatin. doing the math if your lemon juice and strawberry puree equal 1 and 1/3 cups, then the honey should go up to 8-12 tbsp and 12 tbsp of gelatin. seeing as the others say 2-3 tbsp honey, 1/3 cup juice, 3 tbsp gelatin, and the cups for the flavor is 4 times as much. every thing else should be as well. granted I haven`t tried making these ones. I could be wrong, but to me it would just make since to do so. though cause the strawberry puree is thicker I would cut the gelatin down to 9-10 tbsp and use 8 tbsp honey so it wont be to sweet, or take away from the strawberry lemonade flavor. I am most likely going to try both ways, and see how they come out. I just need to get the stuff and time to do so.

    Had great hopes for these but found them to be way to rubbery. One big problem is the smell of the gelatin. It really doesn’t smell like something I want to put in my mouth. I used Great Lakes. My daughter tossed one up and it stuck to the ceiling. We did have fun tossing them around. May try orange just to give them another chanced since it uses less gelatin. Still can’t figure out why the big difference in recipes.

    9 tablespoons is too much! Bounces like a red rubber ball.

  • Freya December 21, 2014, 4:29 am

    Thanks a lot! This worked very well for us! We tried with different fruits and we love pureed blueberries and elderberry juice instead of lemon juice most!

  • Brandi September 11, 2014, 10:25 am

    Do I store them in the fridge once they are made? How long are they good for? 🙂

  • teeky28 September 6, 2014, 1:28 pm

    did you really mean 9 tablespoons? because, yeah, it clumps. your cherry gummies call for 3 tablespoons per one cup juice???

  • Kathleen July 19, 2014, 2:29 pm

    Can’t wait to try these! I’m happy to have found a recipe that calls for pureed fruit, instead of fruit juice. I don’t buy juice and was hoping to make gummy snacks by pureeing something in my Vitamix. Thanks!

  • Dagny Hartmann June 3, 2014, 12:50 pm

    I made these earlier and I think that 9 tbsp of gelatin is too much. Even after putting the mixture into the food processor it was really clumpy. The flavor is really muted too, I can’t get my toddler to even try them. I won’t make these again.

  • Ima May 1, 2014, 9:12 am

    Made 50 of these yesterday… Aaaaaaand, now they’re gone 🙂 whole family inhaled them after dinner lol! I really love the addition of heavy lemon. We didn’t have a whole cup of strawberries but I had about a half and a handful of blueberries. I threw those in the vitamin and added a little applesauce to help equal a cup in measurement. So so yummy!

    I don’t have gelatin powder, all i have is the gelatin that comes with my bone broth. Can I use that?

  • sweetness November 5, 2013, 2:19 pm

    I’ve always found that gelatin mixes better (no clumps) when the liquid is cold. Perhaps pureed the gelatin with the strawberries, then heat?

  • Antoinette September 13, 2013, 3:53 pm

    I am not sure how to make this without there being clumps of gelatin! 🙂 Help! any tips?

    • thelifespark December 5, 2013, 11:12 pm

      I used an immersion blender to get it smooth. A whisk just wasn’t doing the job.

  • Stacy September 2, 2013, 10:55 pm

    This may sound dumb, but is that 1 cup of strawberries… puréed or 1 cup of puréed strawberries?

    • me September 10, 2013, 2:35 pm

      not dumb – good question

    • Tiffany @ The Coconut Mama September 11, 2013, 2:52 pm

      1 cup of puréed strawberries 🙂

  • Carolyn August 26, 2013, 3:21 pm

    Are these chewy like “real” fruit gummies or are they like jello in consistency?

  • Chelsea Randolph August 26, 2013, 12:15 am

    Can this recipe be done without molds? Can I pour it in a pan then cut squares?

    • smallfootprintmama August 26, 2013, 10:13 am

      Yes you can!
