Lemon and Honey Sour Gummies

Lemon, Lime and Honey Sour Gummies Recipe - Paleo, Healthy Lollies

Happy Easter Weekend! Easter completely crept up on me this year – I was sure it was at least another week away but it was a nice surprise to realise it was this week! Although I’m planning to make some easter chocolates for tomorrow, I also had the desire to make some other sweets too. This was the first time I’d made lollies like this before and it was so much fun! This is a pretty common sort of Paleo recipe, I’ve seen them made with all sorts of fruit before. I was very impressed -they taste SO good and are so much healthier than store-bought lollies too. I’m sure kids would love to both make and eat these!

Lemon, Lime and Honey Sour Gummies Recipe - Paleo, Healthy Lollies

Ingredients
  1. 80ml fresh lemon juice (2 lemons approx.)
  2. 1 Tbsp honey (or more according to taste)
  3. 1 1/2 Tbsps powdered gelatine (unflavoured beef gelatine from grass-fed cows is best)
  4. 1/4 tsp powdered tumeric (for colour/optional)
  5. You will also need a silicon lolly or chocolate mould/small ice cube tray with about 20 spaces.
  6. *Please note measurements are with Australian tablespoons - see note below for substitutions
Instructions
  1. Place lemon juice in saucepan with honey and stir to combine. You can taste mixture at this stage and add more honey if you desire.
  2. Slowly add the gelatine, bit by bit and continue stirring until completely dissolved.
  3. Once combined let the mixture rest for 5mins.
  4. Place pan over a medium-low heat and begin stirring until the mixture becomes smooth (it took me a bit over 5mins). Make sure not to boil though - you may need to drop the temperature if it heats up too quickly.
  5. Once ready pour into the moulds and place into freezer until set. It won't take very long, about 15mins but can depend somewhat on the size.
  6. Pop the set gummies out of the moulds (this bit is quite fun to do) and store in air-tight container. I've read they keep for a couple of weeks at room temperature (you can store them in the fridge too) - but I imagine you'll probably finish them before then :)
Notes
  1. Makes about 20 gummies.
  2. All measurements are Australian - where 1tbsp = 20ml (UK/US tbsp = 15ml). To substitute use 1 UK/US tbsp plus an extra 1 UK/US tsp.

Great Lakes Gelatine is my favourite to use which can be bought in Australia from here or from Amazon here (aff.) I bought my moulds from the Reject Shop.
