One easy, kid-friendly way to get the power of gelatin into your family’s diet is by making gummies. Think gummy bears without the sugar high. You can’t go wrong.
Easy Strawberry Lemonade Gummies (Paleo and GAPS-friendly!)
Easy Strawberry-Lemonade Gummies
Combine all ingredients except gelatin in a saucepan over medium heat. Heat until warm through, but not hot. Add gelatin and use a whisk or immersion blender to thoroughly combine fruit and gelatin.
Pour mixture into silicone candy molds or an 8×8-inch glass baking dish. Cover tightly and freeze 15-20 minutes on a level surface of the freezer.
Remove pan or molds from freezer and remove gummies. If using a baking dish, use a spatula to gently loosen the edges and part of the bottom of the gelatin from the sides of the dish. Gently turn it upside down onto a cutting board and let the gelatin fall out. Use a large knife to cut it into squares or strips. Refrigerate any leftovers.

Is it 1/3 cup lemon juice or 1/3 of a lemon juiced?
1/2 lemon juice? 1/3 cup, or the juice of 1/3 lemon? If the latter, what size lemon?
What is 1/3 lemon juice? 1/3 cup? I want to make this, so please let me know! Thanks.
Will these stay good/keep their shape in a chilled lunchbox for a few hours?
The original email with the recipe says one third cup lemon juice – hope that helps!
These look terrific! what is the best way to store them once made…outside the fridge in sealed container…in the fridge….in freezer? thanks
7 tablespoons gelatin? I have some GoBio organic Gelatin powder, which says that one pouch (30 gr/1.06 oz; 2 tbsp) will set 2 cups of liquid or 1 1/2 cups solids. So do you really need 7 tbsp gelatin?
These are more the consistency of gummie bears than jello :) That’s why we need more – I like it for the health benefits of gelatin.
Thank you for this yummy and healthy recipe! Do you strain the seeds out of your strawberry purée?
I don’t – I leave them in :)
Made these yesterday and I think I might have cooked the mixture too long on the stove, the gummies came out a bit too chewy (in an off putting way) and some of the flavor of the lemon/strawberries was muted. How long to do you whisk the mixture on the stove before pouring it into the mold?
Hi Rachael, you really just need to make it so the mixture is completely liquid and all the gelatin is melted on the stove- a few minutes.
Hi, are these measurements metric? Just don’t wanna mix that up the first time I make them 😂
