Gummies are easy to make at home for a gut friendly, protein rich healthy snack. Using grass fed gelatin powder that promotes gut health and skin health you can make easy homemade gut gummies that the whole family will love.

This recipe is allergy friendly, gluten free, dairy free, nut free and no added sugar. The natural sweetness comes from fruit and natural monk fruit concentrate.

To make gummies

To make gut gummies you simply need to dissolve gelatin powder into a warmed liquid. This could be pureed fruit, juice, coconut water, coconut milk etc. To do so you first need to ‘bloom’ the gelatin in water (a process of allowing the gelatin to swell) or sprinkle over top of you prepared puree or liquid, allowing a few minutes before mixing through). Scroll down to watch the video below to see. Dissolve your bloomed gelatin into warm-hot liquid (not boiling), stirring continuously until all the gelatin is dissolved. You then simply pour the mixture into moulds and set in the fridge.

Which Gelatin to Use?

To make gut gummies you will need to use a powdered gelatin. I like to choose a grass fed, pasture raised gelatin from Australia or New Zealand such a Thankfully Nourished.  Use the Live Love Nourish community discount code LIVELOVE for 10% off Thankfully Nourished collagen, gelatin and monk fruit.

Adding Natural Sweetness

When sweetening recipes I prefer to use natural sweetness from whole fruit or naturally derived sweeteners vs artificial sweeteners. Depending on the recipe natural sweetness can be added from pureed fruit, apple sauce, honey, pure maple syrup, stevia drops or monk fruit concentrate. In this recipe I used just several drops of natural monk fruit concentrate to add a touch of sweetness without added sugar.

Homemade gelatin gummies are a healthy and simple protein rich snack that’s also great for gut health. Get creative with different flavours using your favourite pureed fruit. You can get different shape moulds from kitchen stores, online or I use silicone moulds from Kmart. You can also make these a fun, gut friendly choc treat by coating in chocolate.

Mango Gummies

Raspberry Gummies 

  • 1/2 cup

    raspberry puree

    defrosted from frozen
  • 1/2 cup water (or coconut water or apple juice)
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 6 drops monk fruit concentrate (or equivalent natural sweetener)
  • 2 tbsp gelatin powder

Blueberry & Apple Gummies

Lemon & Honey Gummies


  • To make the mango, raspberry and blueberry gummies, puree fruit with liquid (coconut water, water or apple juice).
  • Place pureed fruit into a small sauce pan. Sprinkle over with gelatin powder and allow to sit for 5 minutes for the gelatin to bloom. Whisk over low-medium heat until gelatin is dissolved. Do not let it boil. 
  • Pour the mixture into moulds and place in fridge to set for 1-2 hours or firm to touch and easily remove from moulds. 
  • Remove from moulds and store in an aright container in fridge.


You can use fresh or frozen fruit to make these. If using frozen, defrost to room temperature first. For the berry flavoured gummies, frozen seems to add a sweeter flavour. You can use fresh but adjust sweetness to taste with extra honey if needed.
You can use any favourite fruit for the puree (just not kiwi!) such as strawberries, peach, pear or watermelon & lime juice.
In this recipe we have used whole fruit, to encourage kids to consume the benefits of whole fruit vs just the juice. If your little one is sensitive to texture you can strain the pureed fruit first to remove tiny seeds etc. If you have just started introducing gummies to your children you can start with 100% natural juice or 1/2 juice and 1/2 whole fruit puree to begin. Using apple juice in place of water will also add a familiar natural sweetness to the gummies.
