Homemade Gummy Bears (Real Fruit)

Store bought Gummy Bears can tend to have a ton of foreign, unpronounceable ingredients in them that would make you wonder, so I wanted to show you how you can make them yourself with just a few ingredients and with all natural sugars, that’s it!

The main ingredient in these Homemade Gummy Bears is real fruit: strawberries, blueberries, orange… what ever takes your fancy. The sweetness comes from the fruit and honey, so no artificial sugars or flavors.

My Homemade Gummy Bears are set with gelatin. I recommend using a good quality grass fed and unflavored gelatin.
