Homemade Fruit Snacks

Ingredients

Recipe courtesy Sarah Bakes Gluten Free Treats

  • 2 1/2 cups fresh or frozen fruit
  • 1/3 cup orange juice
  • 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup or honey
  • 5 tablespoons unflavored gelatin
  • Directions

    Prepare 8-inch baking dish* by lining with parchment paper (for easy removal). In medium saucepan, add fruit, orange juice and maple syrup. Cook over medium-low heat, just to soften fruit. Turn off heat and carefully pour mixture into blender or food processor. Puree until smooth.

    Pour mixture back into saucepan. Turn heat to low and slowly add gelatin. Continue to whisk until gelatin is completely dissolved and no clumps remain. Pour into prepared pan. Place in refrigerator for about 1-2 hours, until set. Remove from pan and cut into 1/2-inch squares (a pizza cutter works great!). Store in air-tight container. These fruit snacks to not have to be refrigerated, but we prefer to keep them chilled.

    *You can also pour the fruit mixture into silicone molds to make fun shapes!
