I love to make gummies for my kids because, let’s be honest here, they will eat anything that looks like candy! We drink a ton of kombucha and I always have extra fruit to use up….so these kombucha fruit gummies were created from fruit I needed to use up! The gut-healing gelatin combined with the probiotics in the kombucha make for one healthy snack!

These would be especially helpful for someone who is suffering from a gastrointestinal illness, or kiddos who are under the weather and don’t feel like eating much.

Ingredients

Instructions

    1. In a food processor or Vitamix, blend 1 cup kombucha, mango, and banana until smooth.
    2. In a saucepan heat 1 cup kombucha over low heat (too much heat will destroy the probiotic content).
    3. When the kombucha is warm to the touch, whisk in the gelatin 1 Tbsp at a time whisking constantly.
    4. Slowly adding the gelatin is important to avoid clumps (if it does clump, heat the liquid more and whisk to dissolve).
    5. When all the gelatin is incorporated, add to the fruit puree.
    6. Mix everything together and pour into a shallow pan, or silicone candy molds — like these.
    7. Put pan or molds into the fridge, and in an hour or so you will have Kombucha Fruit Gummies.
    8.  If you didn’t have molds and used the pan when it’s set you can cut it into squares.
    9. Dip gummies into sugar to really give them a candy look, and an extra sweetness — but this is totally optional.

  1. These sound great! I have had so many people tell me that what trips them up while starting to eat paleo is having to make their kids happy. This is proof that it can be done!

    1. I gave this a try. They were delicious. Thanks for the recipe! I added berries to half the batch. I think I’d try it with a bit less gelatin next time. I found the texture to be a bit dense.

      2. I have actually started adding less gelatin too. It seems they get firmer over time. They sit in the fridge for a few days and toughen up. So to keep the kids continually happy, I have modified the recipe a bit. Glad you liked them! 🙂

  2. yumm..would this work if I didnt add the mango? I am currently doing the 21 DSD so I am very limited in the fruit I can have. But definitely want to try these gummies. I made some tea infused gelatin gummies this week from Practical Paleo and they turned out pretty good.

  4. I have followed this recipe 4 times and I keep getting clumps of gelatin. How do you avoid this? I am using the same gelatin that you recommend. I was thinking that next time I would warm more of the cherry juice and see if that helps. Any tips?

  5. I have this kind of Gelatin Great Lakes Gelatin Collagen Hydrolysate (Kosher), 16-Ounce, 454-Gram- and it doesn’t need to go in warm liquid. I wonder if it would work for these?

  6. Have them setting in the fridge as we speak! Can’t wait to try. How long will these stay good? And where should I store them? Thinking about bagging them in cellophane bags I have and heat clamping them for portioned out lunch box snacks.

  7. Newbie here. So can I use other juices like the tart cherry or pomegranate or grape or apple? Just thinking of variety. Also assuming I can use different fruits?? Excited to make these for my kiddos. They already like the elderberry syrup 🙂
