Full of vitamin C and probiotic goodness, these little Grapefruit Gummies are a healthy choice for snack time! RaiasRecipes.comSpring is right around the corner…

…and my kids CAN’T WAIT. Seriously. Just about every other day at least one of my kids ask me if it’s still winter, or when it will be spring. 

Not that it’s not nice enough to be outside anyway, since we live in the sunny-99%-of-the-time south. Maybe they miss the mosquitoes…

Since it is technically still wintertime, and colds and bugs are still going around, I’ve fortified these gummies with water kefir for probiotic strength, honey for added minerals (niacin, thiamine, pantothenic acid, riboflavin, vitamin C & B6, calcium, and iron, to name just a few), and magnesium powder, since it’s one of the 6 macro-minerals that our bodies need (and most Americans are deficient in it). And all that goodness is on top of the vitamin C found naturally in the grapefruit!

A pretty stellar winter snack, if you ask me… or my kids. 🙂

RaiasRecipes.comI chilled them in my new favorite toy: these cute little silicone candy molds. But of course you don’t have to use molds, these will just as easily set up in any baking dish, and can be cut with a knife afterward.

    1. Thanks, Jules! I’ve never used fruit pectin in anything, so I don’t really know if it would work as a substitute. It’s worth a try, though! If it doesn’t work out, I’m sure you could make the experiment into a yummy smoothie. 😉

    1. Aw, thanks, Monique! 🙂 I love trying to get as many healthy things in as possible. 😉 I hope you enjoy them if you have a chance to try them!

  1. I just spent a week making natural cold and flu remedies for my family so I can’t wait to make these sweet and swell fortified fruity gummies. (My hubby won’t know that it is good for him!) Thank you for sharing these grapefruit gummies at the Healthy Happy Green Natural Party! I’m Pinning and sharing this!

  5. Hi Raia,
    Just a note to let you know that I have chosen your post as one of features on this weeks Real Food Fridays blog hop that goes live every Thursday @ 7pm EST. Thank you for sharing your valuable information and being part of Real Food Fridays mission!

  6. Hi. Love your recipes. Can’t wait to try! Is there anything to substitute for honey? My daughter is not yet one and our pediatrician marks honey as the only thing she can’t have before her first birthday because of botulism. It’s in your gelatin grapefruit gummies and the coconut chocolate bars. Thank you!

    1. You can sub out maple syrup for the honey, though it will taste a little differently. 🙂 Honestly, if you’re making them for a baby, just leave the sweetener out. 🙂
