What kid doesn’t like fruit snacks? And gummies? And strawberries and apples? Sure, there are some out there but most kids absolutely love gummies and fruit snacks.
These gummy fruit snacks were created out of necessity of hidden nutrition. I have started trying things like smoothies with hidden veggies and hemp protein powder, and yummy tasting snacks such as these Strawberry Apple Gummy Fruit Snacks.
The gelatin in these gummy fruit snacks is a healthy source of collagen!
Most people these days are not getting as much gelatin as our ancestors used to because we no longer eat all of the parts of the animals. The type of protein that is provided by gelatin is full of amino acids that are REALLY great for your hair, skin, and nails; not to mention digestive health. The collagen that is readily available in gelatin (I prefer grass fed gelatin) can also be found in bone broths as well, but I prefer sweet treats when given the choice!
Making gummies or fruit snacks might seem daunting but if you can make jello, you can make gummy fruit snacks! The great thing about these is if your child (or you) don’t love the flavor combo, you can change it up with most anything.

- Combine the apple juice and strawberry puree in a small saucepan and heat over low heat. When the mixture has reached a WARM (but not boiling) state, whisk in honey until melted.
- When the honey is melted, whisk in the gelatin until it is dissolved completely.
- Pour into molds and refrigerate for 1 hour.
- Enjoy! These will keep in your fridge for 2 weeks! They are more the consistency of gummy snacks and are able to go in baggies in your kids lunches!
