Full of vitamin C and probiotic goodness, these little paleo homemade Grapefruit Gummies are a healthy choice for snack time!
Warm weather lovers.
Whenever spring is around the corner my kids CAN’T WAIT. Seriously. Just about every other day all winter long 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… Just kidding. I know what they really want is all the summer-time snacks. But they’re also satisfied with fruit snacks.
Easy, paleo snacks.
Besides grapefruit gummies, here are a few other favorited snacks around her…
- 4-Ingredient Paleo Poopsicles
- Kid-Friendly Fruit Kabobs
- Homemade Yogurt in the Instant Pot
- Ginger Honey Jello
- Apple Pie Popsicles
- Kombucha Lemon Gummies
- Raw Peanut Butter Coconut Bites
These paleo Grapefruit Gummies are their latest favorite fruit snack rendition. And since they love them year-round (even during flu and cold season), 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 snack, if you ask me… or my kids.
I 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.
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!

In small saucepan sprinkle gelatin over water kefir (or slowly stir in). Allow to bloom for a few minutes. Turn the heat to low and dissolve the gelatin. When gelatin is dissolved stir in the honey.
In blender, juice a grapefruit.
Add gelatin mixture to the grapefruit juice, along with remaining ingredients.
Pulse to combine, then pour into candy molds or two 8×8 inch baking dishes.
Refrigerate until set (about 3-4 hours).
If using baking dishes, cut the gummies into little squares.
