Easy Homemade Healthy Gummies

The presence of sugars, corn syrup and artificial dyes in kids food is a big concern, not just for parents, but also for the millions of adults like me who really should know better than to chew down these sweets...

Thank goodness for this recipe then.

This homemade and - whisper it - healthy take on gummies by Eat Local Grown are just as delicious, but much friendlier on your teeth.

This recipe also allows you a lot of artistic license with your choice of flavors and shapes, so get creative!

healthy homemade gummies


  • 1 1/2 cups fruit juice
  • 4 tablespoons plain gelatin
  • 2-4 tablespoons Raw Honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


Pour juice into a small saucepan, but don't heat the pan just yet. Sprinkle the gelatin over the top and let sit for a few minutes until it starts to “bloom” (it will get wrinkly looking on the surface and all of the white powder from the gelatin will absorb into the liquid). When all the gelatin is absorbed, whisk to combine.

Place the saucepan over medium heat on the stove. Let the liquid warm through, but never boil. Wait for all the gelatin to dissolve and for the liquid to go to turn to a thin butter-like mixture. 

Next, whisk in the honey and vanilla extract.

Pour into fun candy molds and refrigerate until set, usually 2-3 hours. 

Remove from molds.

Keep in an airtight container in the refrigerator for about 1-2 weeks.
