Homemade Healthy Fruit Snacks

Inspired by this recipe from the Mommypotamus.


2/3 cup fresh lemon juice (fresh orange juice would also work, and makes them less sour.)
2/3 cup frozen or fresh berries (raspberries, blueberries, strawberries are all great.)
1 – 2 Tbs honey
5 Tbs gelatin (from grass fed cows… like this)

Looking for quality real food ingredients? Be sure to check out the Village Green Marketplace!


1. Pour juice and berries into a small saucepan. Heat over medium heat, stirring occasionally until berries become tender and begin to soften.

2. Add honey and stir until completely incorporated.

3. Puree mixture using a immersion blender or small blender (my magic bullet works great for this!)

4. Let sit, off heat, for 5 – 10 minutes.

5. Slowly whisk in gelatin, one tablespoon at a time. Whisk vigorously until completely incorporated, mixing the gelatin in very gradually to avoid lumps. (If you do get lumps, just run the mixture through your blender again!)

6. Pour into a 8 x 8 or 9 x 9 glass dish. Refrigerate until set (30 minutes to an hour). Cut in small squares. (You could also use some cute molds and create awesome shapes. I’m not awesome like that… but you could be!)

Note: I like to keep these in my fridge (I love cold things!), but they do transport and keep nicely at room temperature.
