Healthy Homemade Gummy Fruit Snacks


These homemade fruit snacks are made with gelatin, they have to be kept cool, or they melt into goo. That said, they were a hit with my kids, who were perfectly happy to take them to daycamp in their cooler bags for snack time. I tasted them myself and I loved the intense berry flavor and found the jelly texture quite nice.

Healthy Homemade Gummy Fruit Snacks 1 Picture


  • 1 cup mixed berries
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup applesauce
  • 1/2 cup fruit juice (apple, cranberry, blueberry or other preference)
  • 2 envelopes gelatin (1 envelope = 2 1/2 teaspoons)



Step 1

In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine the berries and water. Bring to a boil and cook until berries are soft, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a blender or use an immersion blender to puree berries until smooth. Return to pot. Add applesauce and return to a boil, then remove from heat, cover and set aside.

In a large bowl, sprinkle gelatin over fruit juice and let stand one minute. Add hot fruit mixture and stir until gelatin completely dissolves, 3 to 5 minutes.

Pour into 8 x 8 inch glass or ceramic baking dish (or into molds, if you want to go that route). Refrigerate until firm, about 3 hours. Cut into blocks or shapes.
