Gummy fruit snacks are a kid-favorite; however, most store-bought fruit gummies are filled with processed sugars and other bizarre ingredients. These homemade fruit snacks present a similar consistency to gummies without all the junk. In fact, they are made with the incredibly healthy gelatin, and can be made in a variety of flavors!
“What if you could get gelatin in a fun and even kid friendly way? And what if you could include the probiotic, gut healing properties of fermented kombucha? That’s why we made kombucha gelatin (not to be confused with another house favorite, kombucha & gin)! What’s SO COOL about using kombucha instead of fruit juice is that it’s fizzy and created a really cool foamy texture when it hardens!
Yep, we made fruit snacks! Not unique perhaps, but we had a lot of fun doing it! We decidedly like the kinds with fruit puree in them best, with half the house split between strawberries and citrus as our favorites. The plain kombucha tastes much more like classic jell-0, for those who are interested in that sort of texture. Best part about the Kombucha flavor is that it’s completely unsweetened and 21 Day Sugar Detox approved!
Meanwhile, the other two flavors use only minimal amount of fruit to sweeten them, making it a easily digestible protein-rich form with moderate fiber rich carbs your body could love, even postWOD!
We’ve tried a bazillion gummy recipes. Without some sort of sugar as a sweetener we haven’t been able to achieve that classic chewiness you might want, but we’ve come to love the jello-like texture of making them ourselves with grass-fed gelatin. Between the vitamins and minerals (including fiber) from the fruit puree and the collagen-rich gelatin, we LOVE that these fruit snacks are a nutrient-dense food source that our children beg for.”
