  • 1.5 cups fresh berries or diced other fruit
  • 6 tablespoons water
  • 2 tablespoons lemon or lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons Pasture Raised Beef Gelatin
  • 1-2 tablespoons raw honey adjust to taste and natural sweetness of fruit
  • pinch of salt
  • optional: ascorbic acid Vitamin C or other vitamin additive


  1. Add water and lemon (or lime) juice to a small bowl and sprinkle gelatin on top. Let the gelatin soak for 5-10 minutes.

  2. In the meantime, blend the berries (or other fruit) until smooth. Add 1-2 tablespoons of water, if necessary.

  3. If desired, press the fruit puree through a fine-meshed sieve to remove any seeds or skin pieces.
  4. Heat the fruit puree in a small saucepan together with honey and salt. Add the bloomed gelatin and stir until fully dissolved. Add any desired vitamin boosters.
  5. Fill the fruit mixture into molds. Ice cube trays or any other candy silicone molds will work. Place the molds in the fridge to let the gummies set for about 2 hours.
  6. Unmold and enjoy! Especially in the summer, the gummies are best stored in a covered container in the fridge.

Recipe Notes

Other flavor ideas:
For fall flavored gummies, try using pumpkin puree instead of fruit. Replace lemon juice with water and add seasonal spices like pumpkin pie spice mix.
