Scale

Ingredients

Strawberry Gummies:

  • 1/2 c. strawberries
  • 3/4 c. apple juice (or water)
  • 13 Tbsp. maple syrup
  • juice of lemon wedge
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. agar powder (or 3 Tbsp. agar flakes)

Blueberry Gummies:

  • 1/2 c. blueberries
  • 3/4 c. apple juice (or water)
  • 13 Tbsp. maple syrup
  • juice of a lemon wedge
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. agar powder (or 3 Tbsp. agar flakes)

Kiwi Spinach Gummies:

  • 2 kiwis, peeled and chopped
  • 1 c. spinach
  • 3/4 c. apple juice (or water)
  • 13 Tbsp. maple syrup
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. agar powder (or 3 Tbsp. agar flakes)
  • juice of a lemon wedge

Orange Gummies:

  • 1 small orange, peeled
  • 1/2 c. orange juice
  • 12 Tbsp. maple syrup
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. agar powder (or 3 Tbsp. agar flakes)
  • juice of a lemon wedge

Instructions

  1. Blend together the fruit, apple juice or water, and 1 Tbsp. of maple syrup (if using apple juice) or 2-3 Tbsp. if using water, together until smooth.
  2. Place into a saucepan and bring to a boil.
  3. Stir in the agar powder and reduce to a simmer for 2 minutes. The agar should be completely dissolved by now. Add the lemon juice and mix. Add more maple syrup if needed at this point.
  4. Pour into desired molds (I used this one) and refrigerate until sets (approximately 30 minutes). If you do not have any fun molds, fear not. Simply line an 8×8 pan with parchment paper and pour the mix into the pan. Allow to set, remove from the pan and slice into small rectangles.
  5. Keep chilled in the fridge for up to 1 week in an airtight container.
