How to Make Natural Lego Gummies

Who said you can’t play with your food? Natural gummies are a good way to have kids eat more fruits. If you have a fruit tree at home and you are wondering what else to do with the fruit, this is a good use for it.

There are so many unhealthy dyes and ingredients in foods these days, that making your own treats ensures that you know what went into them. 

Ingredients:
3 envelopes (1/4 onz) unflavored gelatin 
2/3 cup of berry puree. I used raspberries.
Honey or desired sweetener
Lego shaped molds or use a traditional gummy bear mold

*For sour gummies, use orange or lemon juice. 



Instructions:

  1. Wash the fruit and place it in a blender. I used my Ninja instead. 
  2. Using a measuring cup, pour 2/3 cup of the fruit puree into a mixing bowl. 
  3. Add 3 envelopes of unflavored gelatin and 2 tablespoons of honey.
  4. Mix all the ingredients. 
  5. Microwave the bowl for 30 seconds. 
  6. Carefully fill in the mold cavities using the mixture. 
  7. Once you have emptied out all the mixture, place the molds in the refrigerator for 20 minutes or until firm. 

Storing the leftovers:
Put any remaining gummies in a plastic bag and place them in the refrigerator. This will help preserve them better.
