Ingredients and Substitutes
Making homemade fruit snacks is a great way to incorporate vegetables and sneak in the pulp. Just puree the fruit and vegetable juice and add enough maple syrup or raw honey naturally sweeten the deal!
Fresh Vegetable and Fruit Juices - I love running whole fruits through my Hurom slow juicer. A slow masticating juicer is gentle on the ingredients and retains more immune-boosting benefits, vitamins and nutrients. Making healthy gummy bears with fresh-pressed juice is lovely!
Of course, if you are pressed for time, a good quality store-bought orange juice or juice mixture is also an option!
You can try many different flavors combinations with veggie and real fruit juices.
- carrot and apple juice
- celery, kiwi and green apple juice
- carrot and mango juice
- beets and strawberry juice
Have you considered making apple cider vinegar gummies at home with healthy gelatin? Just substitute fruit juice with Apple Cider Vinegar. We like Bragg Apple Cider Vinegar with the Mother the most.
You can also make gummy bears with Jello mix.
Agar Agar Powder - is a gelatinous substance made from seaweed and sets more firmly at room temperature than unflavored gelatin powder. Agar has no calories and no carbs. It is sugar-free, fat-free, rich in fibre and free from starch, soy, corn, gluten, yeast, wheat, milk, egg and preservatives. Great for vegan gummies.
Natural Sweeteners - If your kids are used to
store-bought gummy snacks, from personal experience, their taste buds will need some time to get used to less sugary treats. However, you can turn these into their favorite treats with maple syrup, honey, or monk fruit sugar.
Healthy homemade gummies are delicious healthy snacks and lunch box treats for kids and grown-ups alike. Compared to traditional gummy bear, these tasty treat require simple ingredients without artificial flavors.
Wash and pat dry fruits and vegetables with kitchen paper towels.
Cut fruits and veggies into small cubes.
Juice fruits and vegetables in a slow-press juicer or high-performance blender like a Vitamix.
Add juice to a small saucepan.
Add agar agar powder to the juice and let it bloom for a few minutes.
The mixture will start to wrinkle.
Heat juice over low heat to dissolve vegan gelatine. Whisk frequently until smooth. Do not bring to boil.
Pour into gummy mould and refrigerate for at least 30 mins. Overnight is best.
How To Store Homemade Fruit Gummy Bear Recipe

Healthy Gummies Variations
In fact, you can turn your own gummy candies into homemade fruit roll-ups.
Instead of pouring the liquid mixture into candy molds, pour it over a cookie sheet lined with wax paper or precut parchment paper sheets.
