These Healthy Homemade Gummy Bears are super chewy, sweet and addictive, just like the storebought stuff! These naturally fruity Gummy Bears are fat free, refined sugar free, and low carb... no corn syrup or artificial flavorings whatsoever! But don’t worry, you’d never know these are actually good for you!

After making my Healthy Homemade Fruit Snacks I knew I needed to make Gummy Bears.

Storebought Fruit Snacks and Gummy Bears are totally (and sadly) addictive…  100% sugary, syrupy, unhealthy deliciousness.  That’s why I knew I had to make a DIY version.  These DIY Strawberry Gummy Bears are naturally flavored and made with real fruit puree, not artificial flavorings or fruit juice concentrate.

Healthy Homemade Strawberry Gummy Bears

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour

Ingredients:

Directions:

  1. *Wash your strawberries, slice the greens off and puree in a blender. Measure 2 cups of the puree and place in a medium-sized bowl.
  2. Stir in the lemon juice, stevia and food coloring.
  3. It helps to have another person help you here. Have one person spread open a nut milk bag over a large bowl while you pour the strawberry mixture inside. Tie the bag closed and squeeze the bag to get as much liquid out as you can. You should get 1¾ cup (or 334g) of the mixture after straining.
  4. Pour the mixture into a nonstick saucepan, sprinkle the gelatin overtop and let it sit for 5 minutes.  Stir it together and smush any big clumps of gelatin, don’t worry about the small ones, they’ll dissolve.
  5. Place the pan over medium-high heat and stir occasionally, until it comes to a light boil. Stir constantly when the mixture boils harder.  When you can’t stir the bubbles away, keep it on the heat for ~30 seconds and then remove from the heat.  Let the mixture sit for a few minutes so the foam/bubbles have a chance to go away, then carefully scoop the mixture into gummy bear molds.
  6. Let the molds cool on the counter for about an hour, then place them in the fridge. Refrigerate until firm. To store, place gummy bears in an airtight container and refrigerate.

  5. These were so easy and so much fun to make. I used Monk Fruit instead of Stevia, worked well. I will be making lots of these. I had a few complaints about their tartness so I will adjust the lemon juice next time. Thanks for the great recipe.
