Healthy Homemade Fruit Snacks

Healthy Homemade Fruit Snacks

newsquare2/3 cup fresh lemon juice or fresh orange juice (if you don’t like sour go with orange!)

2/3 cup frozen or fresh berries (raspberries, blueberries, strawberries are all great.)

1 – 2 T. honey

5 T. gelatin 

Pour juice and berries into a small saucepan. Heat over medium heat, stirring occasionally until berries become tender and begin to soften. Add honey and stir until completely incorporated. You will want the fruit to dissolve quite a bit until you have a compote. Puree mixture using an immersion blender or small blender. Let sit, off heat, for 5 – 10 minutes. Whisk in gelatin, one tablespoon at a time. Whisk vigorously until completely incorporated, mixing the gelatin in very gradually to avoid lumps. (If you do get lumps, just run the mixture through your blender again or you can put it back on the heat to help dissolve the gelatin.) Pour into a 8 x 8 or 9 x 9 glass dish. Refrigerate until set (30 minutes to an hour). Cut in small squares.

Note: I like to keep these in my fridge (I love cold things!), but they do transport and keep nicely at room temperature.
