Homemade Fruit Snacks (with veggies!)

  • Author: Michelle


Units Scale

For the strawberry beet fruit snacks 

  • 1 lb strawberries, chopped
  • 1/3 cup beets, steamed and chopped
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp + 1 tsp gelatin (see notes for vegan)

For the mango carrot fruit snacks 

  • 1 lb mango, chopped
  • 1/3 cup carrots, steamed and chopped
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 3 tbsp gelatin (see notes for vegan)


  1. Repeat the same method for both fruit and vegetable combinations above. Add the fruit and vegetables (strawberry and beet, or mango and carrot) to a blender or food processor. Blend until fully liquid. Using a fine mesh strainer set over a medium pot, strain out the juice using a silicone spatula to push down the pulp. You should have about 1 cup of the strawberry beet juice after straining, and about 1 1/3 cups of the mango and carrot juice (which will be much thicker).
  2. Pour the juice into a pot and add the honey. Stir well. Sprinkle the gelatin over the liquid and lightly mix. Allow to harden for 2-3 minutes.
  3. Transfer the pot to the stove and heat over low heat for 3-4 minutes or until fully liquid.
  4. Use a dropper to carefully transfer the liquid into the mold. Alternatively, you can use a large glass container.
  5. Transfer to the fridge for 4-6 hours or until fully set. Carefully remove from the mold (or slice the gummies if using a large glass container) and serve chilled!

How to make this recipe vegan. If you want to swap out gelatin for agar, simply use the same ratio with fruit and vegetables, but three times less agar than you would gelatin. Agar is a lot stronger than gelatin, so you need to divide the amount of gelatin by three, and then you’ll have the amount of agar needed! For example, the mango gummies will only need 1 tbsp of agar. I wouldn’t use pectin in this recipe, as the actual method for making the recipe would be very different.

A note for toddlers — These gummies are a lot softer than storebought, so my son who is over 3 years old is fine with them. However, if you have toddlers, please use caution with gummies/small foods in general as they can be a choking hazard.
