- 1 cup Frozen berries 190g, I used raspberries for the red gummies and blueberries for the purple gummy
- 2 Dates I used pitted dried Noor Deglet dates, medjool dates would be fine too
- 1 tsp Vanilla essence
- one third cup water
- 2 Tbsp gelatin 18-20g
In a saucepan place: berries, dates, vanilla and water
Simmer for 5 minutes
Allow to cool for 5 minutes
Blitz the fruit until it is smooth and an even texture. I use a stick mixer for this
Add the gelatin, I use my stick mixer to mix it in, this saves on dishes as I already have my stick blender out and it makes sure there are absolutely no lumps of gelatin
Portion the mix into a silicone mold. I often find it easiest to put the fruit puree mix into a small jug first.
Chill in the fridge until solid. (usually 1 hr)
Pop out of the mold an store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days
- This recipe is not overly sweet, I developed it for my youngest who is 15months and hasn't had a great deal of sugar.
- If you are making these gummies for an older child they may need to be sweeter, you can use juice instead of water and perhaps add a little honey or maple syrup depending on their palate
- You do not need to stick to this recipe, let your imagination go wild with flavour ideas, keep the ratio of 330ml of liquid (fruit purée or juice) and 2 Tbsp of gelatin and you will be fine!
- Some fruit contain proteases (enzymes that breakdown protein) such as pineapple, these often do not set well. Check up above for the list of fruits and my tips for making good gummies.
