Healthy Homemade Orange Gummy Bears

Servings: 26 Bears
Prep Time: 30 mins
Cook Time: 15 mins
Total Time: 1 hr
These 5-ingredient Healthy Homemade Orange Gummy Bears are just like the storebought kinds -- they're soft, chewy, sweet and bursting with orange flavor!  You'd never know they're fat free, refined sugar free and all natural!

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Give the oranges a rinse, then slice off the orange peels with a sharp knife. It doesn't have to be perfect, just get the majority of the peel off. Slice the oranges in half.
  • Wash the carrots, chop the ends off and then chop into 4" chunks (no need to peel the carrots).
  • Attach the KitchenAid Juicer Attachment to your stand mixer fitted with the high pulp filter, then place a tall container underneath the juice opening and another container underneath what I call the "poop shoot."
  • Turn the stand mixer on high speed and start juicing! Juice the oranges until you get 1⅔ cups worth of juice, and juice the carrots until you get ⅔ cup worth of juice.
  • In a nonstick saucepan, stir together the orange juice, carrot juice, stevia extract and orange flavor with a rubber spatula. Stir in the gelatin, then let it sit for 5 minutes.
  • Place the pan over medium/medium-high heat. Stir occasionally until the mixture begins to bubble. When it starts to bubble, stir constantly and keep it on the heat for ~2 more minutes.  Remove from the heat.
  • Place your gummy bear molds on a cookie sheet and then fill the molds with the gummy bear mixture (I use a ¼ cup measuring cup). Let cool on the counter for about an hour, then place the pan in the fridge. Refrigerate until firm (I leave them overnight).  Refrigerate to store. Keeps for ~3 days.
