So I’ve had a few goes at the gummy lollies now – afterall, I have a whole container of gelatin!
Here are my finding:
Maple syrup has the most sweetness and flavour for the quantity, and it’s paleo for those who prefer.
Coconut sugar is also great but turns lighter coloured gummies caramel coloured.
Frozen berries make great lollies
If I put in vanilla I only put a couple of drops, we don’t need it.
The gelatin must go into cold liquid…
Lime lollies are like sour gummies and awesome!!
It’s all about the presentation, if they look good, they will be more likely to be eaten. Try some natural food colouring from the health food store.
Put them in a container you cannot see into if you don’t want them eaten all at once!!

My recipe is very basic now, using ratios of:
- 1/3 cup fruit/juice
- 1 heaped tablespoon of gelatin
- about 1 tablespoon of sweet stuff
Mix it all together while cold, let sit for 5 minutes, it should go thick. Simmer for 5 minutes then let cool a bit again before pouring into jelly moulds.
They take about 15 minutes in the freezer. Store in the fridge, covered.
