Ingredients

  • 80ml (4 tbsp) fresh juice or poppers – e.g. orange, raspberry, blackcurrant juice
  • 2 tbsp Capilano Manuka Honey
  • 24g (2 tbsp) gelatine powder
  1. Place silicone gummy moulds on a baking tray (for ease of transport).
  2. In a small saucepan or microwave-safe bowl, combine juice and Manuka honey. Mix well.
  3. Sprinkle over gelatine powder and mix to combine. Set aside to ‘bloom’ for 5 minutes.
  4. Over low heat, gently warm mixture until gelatine dissolves, being careful not to boil. Alternatively, microwave for 60 seconds, mix well to combine. Remove from heat and pour into a heat proof jug with a pouring spout. If the mixture has any bubbles or foam, allow it to sit for a couple of minutes and then skim it off the top and discard.
  5. Carefully pour mixture into prepared moulds. Chill for 1-2 hours or until gummies are set and firm. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a month.
