Peach Gummies recipe
makes about 200 gummies
I got into homemade gummy treats earlier this year when I had a doctor tell me to eat a more animal protein temporarily during a treatment I was getting. I’ve never been much of a meat eater, so I found that adding collagen and gelatin into some plant-based foods was a good way for me to get started. Now I love these little gummy treats and appreciate that I’m getting a little protein boost from them. I found these gummy bear molds on Amazon* and love them! They come with a little dropper to get the liquid neatly in the molds. For my vegetarian/vegan friends, you can make similar gummy treats using agar agar, a seaweed based gelatin—here’s a vegan recipe to try.
2 cups defrosted frozen peaches
juice from 3 lemons
2 tablespoons honey
6 tablespoons grassfed gelatin (I used Vital Proteins)
In a blender, blend defrosted peaches and lemon juice until very smooth. Transfer to a small pot and whisk in honey. Turn heat on low and whisk in grassfed gelatin, making sure no lumps remain. Bring up to a low simmer and turn off heat.
Transfer thickened mixture while it’s still hot to a glass baking dish or to gummy molds. If using molds you’ll want to use the dropper that comes with the set. Chill in the fridge until solidified, about 2-3 hours. Unmold and store in the fridge for about a week.
