How to Make Blueberry Gummies
The boys and I are always looking for a fresh yummy snack to enjoy together, especially this time of year when we are outside all day enjoying the beautiful spring weather. Some days we take our blanket out on the lawn and just enjoy a little snack picnic while we watch the clouds go by. It really is the best way to enjoy this season.
We love pairing these homemade gummies with our outdoor recreation time because they are so easy and they pack a delicious punch of healthy amino acids (from the gelatin) and the simplicity of 100% juice for a fresh fruit flavor. Plus they only take a few minutes to make. So simple!
What You Need:
- 2 cups R.W. Knudsen JUST Blueberry Juice
- 5 tablespoons unflavored gelatin
- 2 tablespoons maple syrup (optional)
Yes, that really is it! If you want to ensure a healthy treat, be sure and pick a high-quality gelatin that comes from a reputable source and a juice that is 100% juice just like the R.W. Knudsen JUST juice line. They have Just Blueberry, Just Black Cherry, Just Cranberry, Just Pomegranate, and Just Tart Cherry. We also like the R.W. Knudsen Concord Grape Juice and we already have a bottle in our pantry and are planning on using it for our next batch of gummies. 🙂
Place one cup of the R.W. Knudsen JUST Blueberry Juice in a saucepan on the stove over a low heat. You don’t need to boil the juice, just warm it up. Add in the maple syrup if you choose to use it.
While the first cup of juice is heating up, place the other cup of juice in a bowl and add in the gelatin. Stir the mixture with a fork until well blended. Try not to leave any clumps, they don’t taste the best in the finished product.
Combine the cool mixture into the warm mixture on the stovetop and whisk until completely combined.
Using a dropper and some clean candy molds, place the blueberry gummy mixture into the molds. The number of molds that you will need will depend on the size of the molds you have. This recipe will make just over 2 cups of gummies so it’s something to think about when you buy your molds. If you don’t have a lot of molds you can make a half a batch at a time.
Carefully place the gummy molds into your refrigerator. The gummies should be fully set up in about an hour. After they are set up, remove the gummies from the molds and enjoy!
Store any gummies that you don’t eat right away in an airtight bag or container in the refrigerator.
