Last week I posted this photo of my oldest lovingly holding a batch of homemade fruit snacks on Facebook. The pic seemed to be almost as big of a hit with my friends as the fruit snacks were with my kids, so I decided they must be blog-worthy.
I took this recipe from Thank Your Body and tweaked it here and there to come up with something my kids loved. Hopefully yours will too. . . or just you. . . or whoever is in your house…
In the recipe card I’ve linked to some of the products from my affiliate partners that I like to use. Purchasing through these links won’t cost you anything extra. Thanks!
Easy Strawberry Fruit Snacks
Free from grain, gluten, eggs, dairy, and sugar.
2/3 c. no sugar added juice (I used an apple-raspberry blend)
2/3 c. pureed strawberries (about 6 large whole ones)
4 T. gelatin (I use this kind)
Pour juice into bowl and sprinkle with gelatin.
While the gelatin soaks, wash strawberries and place in blender. (I didn’t bother taking the leaves off, I’m sure there’s something good for you in them.)
Add juice/gelatin mixture. Puree until smooth.
Pour mixture into saucepan and heat over medium-low heat until gelatin is melted.
Pour into 9×9 inch baking dish and refrigerate until firm.
Cut into tiny squares. Store in the fridge (if you can keep from eating them all at once, that is).
