Making your own gummy bears (or in my case, hearts) is super easy. They taste like candy and they are amazingly good for you if you use the right kind of gelatin. I searched high and low to find the best.
This gelatin can help heal your gut lining, ease chronic joint pain, and strengthen your hair and nails. Plus it also is a great source for protein–1 tablespoon offers 6 grams! When you make homemade gummies, you have the added benefit of putting vitamins (like probiotics) into the gummies to make them an even healthier option.
1 and 1/2 cups organic juice (I like to use grape)
1/4 gelatin powder (click here to find the kind I love)
Once it is completely incorporated, remove the mixture from the stove. Using either a silicone mold (I use this heart one) or a cookie sheet that has been coated with coconut oil, pour the mixture in.
If you are using a silicone mold, place it onto a firm surface like a cookie sheet or Pyrex baking dish–this will keep the mold from spilling as they are super flimsy.
Transfer into the freezer for 15-20 minutes. Once set remove your gummies and store in the fridge. (If you used the cookie sheet to make these just use a knife and cut up the gummies into bite sized pieces)
