Fruit Snacks

I have recently been hearing a lot about the health benefits of gelatin so I wanted to try it.  These fruit snacks are a double bonus since I also love gummy snacks!  This is a great recipe for enjoying a gummy treat while eating gelatin!

Ingredients:

6 lemons

1 orange

1.5 cups frozen blueberries

2/3 cup gelatin

Directions:

  • Squeeze juice from lemons and orange.  You need 2 cups of juice.  If you don’t have enough, top with water or squeeze another lemon.
  • Heat juice and berries on high in small saucepan until it boils.  Reduce to medium heat and cook about 2 minutes.
  • Remove from heat.  Whisk in gelatin slowly, whisking vigorously.
  • Puree using an immersion blender.
  • Pour into a 9×13 pan.  Place in fridge to cool, about 2 hours.
  • Cut into squares and put squares in a glass container to store in the fridge.
  • Enjoy!

Notes:

I am posting a picture of the gelatin I used in case you haven’t bought gelatin before.

  1. From what I’ve read, gelatin has many amino acids that are either difficult or impossible for our bodies to create on their own. It is good for bones, joints, skin, and hair. I have also heard it helps rebuild connective tissue in the stomach after pregnancy to help restore a strong core. You definitely can make this recipe with fruit juice instead of squeezing the juice yourself. You can also make this recipe with any juice and fruit you want. If you use fresh fruit, you would need to cook it a little longer so that the fruit is really soft when you puree it. Otherwise, just follow the recipe as is!
