Paleo Gummies (fruit juice sweetened)

Paleo Gummies


At the request of several paleo parents, I have made up this quick and easy Paleo Gummies recipe. You can shape the Paleo Gummies into whatever mold you like: gummy bears, gummy worms, gummy hearts, and stars. What ever small silicone candy molds you can find will create cute personalized gummies.

 

It makes a paleo kid (big or small) feel quite special to be able to choose their very own Paleo Gummies flavors and shapes, and then help you make them. They can specify purple hearts, pink stars, orange worms;  your only limitations are the flavors of juice concentrates, and the shapes of molds you can find.

 

Busy parents, and anyone else who loves a few Paleo Gummies now and then, can be assured that the gelatin in the gummies provides easily digestible protein and healthy amino acids. If your tummy is new to eating gelatin, start slow (don’t eat the whole batch in one go) to ensure your tummy gets accustomed to it. 🙂

 

The natural gelatin I use in these Paleo Gummies is supportive of strong digestive health, good teeth and beautiful skin, hair and nails. Imagine a candy that can strengthen joints and smooth skin, Paleo Gummies are just such a treat.

  • Prep time:  15 minutes
  • Chill to set time:  1 hour
  • Servings:  25  (1″ hearts, or about 30 mini-bears)
  • 3/4 cup hot water
  • 1 TBS. lemon juice
  • 15 drops Sweetleaf liquid stevia*, or 2 TBS. honey, or 2 TBS. maple syrup
  • 3 TBS. 100% fruit juice concentrate (any flavors: grape, apple, orange, raspberry)
  • 3 TBS. gelatin (I use Great Lakes brand)

1) Place everything except gelatin into a small sauce pan. Bring to a boil, then remove from heat.

2) Whisk gelatin into liquid a little at a time, (too much at once will make it clump) and continuing whisking until it dissolves completely.

3) Let the liquid cool down, then pour it into gummy molds. Refrigerate to allow it to firm up.

 

Paleo Gummies can also be made into one large mold of any kind for a special occasion, like a birthday or holiday.

1/3 BATCH MEASUREMENTS (if you would like to do 3 or more flavors)

  • PALEO PRO TIP – I often divide the recipe by 3 in order to make 3 batches, using a different flavor of fruit juice concentrate for each. I found it easy to use frozen concentrates so no bottled juice goes to waste and I can keep several different flavors on hand in the freezer.
  • 1/4 cup hot water
  • 1 tsp. lemon juice
  • 5 drops Sweetleaf liquid stevia, or 2 tsp. maple syrup, or 2 tsp. honey
  • 1 TBS. 100% fruit juice concentrate (grape, apple, orange, raspberry)
  • 1 TBS. gelatin

 

Paleo Gummies will please everyone in the family, especially your paleo kiddos.

* I use the brand called SweetLeaf Liquid Stevia Sweet Drops because they use only cold water to extract the flavoring from the stevia leaves, no chemicals, no alcohols, no petroleum products, no enzymes. I use their liquid stevia, not their powdered product because the powdered contains inulin, which though it is a beneficial natural fiber, some people, especially those intolerant to some FODMAP foods like me, cannot digest inulin without having digestive distress.
