Description

These easy berry gummies are a healthy dessert or snack for anyone, but particularly for kids- they’re filled with healthy fats, gut-healing gelatin, antioxidants and immune boosting honey.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 4 Tbsp gelatine powder
  • 2 Tbsp freeze dried berry powder (this week we used black current)
  • 13 tsp raw honey (see notes)
  • 1/4 cold cold filtered water
  • 1 2/3 cup hot (not boiling) water- around 70c is ideal.

Optional extras: you can add a teaspoon (or two!) of anything else you’d like to add- this might be your favourite vitamin c, herbal extracts, powdered herbs or even powdered good supplements (like liver). It’s so easy to sneak in lots of goodies. I like to add extracts of cordyceps + gubinge (wholefood vitamin c) powder.


Instructions

  1. Add the gelatin, berry powder, 1 tsp honey + any optional extras into a small jug with a lip for pouring (I use a 1.5L Pyrex jug). Mix well. Pour in the cold water + stand for 2 minutes. This is called blooming- don’t skip! Mix well (and remove any lumps you can see by whisking or squashing with a spoon).
  2. Next, slowly add the hot water- I add about 1/4 cup at a time and quickly mix through, then repeat until all the hot water has been used. This step is important- boiling hot water will destroy any antioxidants present (in the berry powder + vitamin c), so slowly adding the hot water (NOT boiling water) is best.
  3. Once mixed really well taste the mixture and add extra honey as desired. Pour into silicone moulds, or simply a glass dish lined with baking paper. Set in fridge for 1-2 hours, or overnight. Make sure etc gummies are quite firm to the touch- when you poke them they should be bouncy and semi-firm. Transfer to an airtight container. They last up to 4-5 days in the fridge.

Note: Alternatively this process can be done in a thermo/magi. Simply add everything in, including the full amount of water, but make sure the water is all cold water. Bloom as described above, then set the thermo/magi and heat to 70c.


Notes

  • If you want sweeter gummies add more honey but start with the smaller amount as you can always add more at the end.
