Kiwi Gummies

These green little beauties are a perfectly tart and sweet treat to enjoy without the guilt. I saw these gummies and had to give them a try. Take the scrumptious kiwi that is high in Vitamin C, gelatine great for joint health, lemon, and honey to come together to make these delicious kiwi gummies. With only four ingredients, you’ll be clamoring for more!

Kiwi Gummies – Step One:

The first step to preparing these kiwi gummies is really quite simple: peel the kiwi! The easiest way that I’ve found is to cut off the top and bottom, then starting from the top work your way down until the whole kiwi is peeled. I like to have a bowl nearby to put the peels in so I can put them in the compost.

Kiwi Gummies- Step Two:

Blend the kiwi in a food processor until relatively smooth. Then heat the puree over medium heat with the honey and lemon juice. Stir it constantly until it starts to steam, not boil. Vitamin C is very heat sensitive and we don’t want to lose those nutrients! When it begins to steam, slowly whisk in the gelatin.

Kiwi Gummies- Step Three:

After the gelatin is completely dissolved, you can pour the mixture into a glass dish or even molds if you have them. Put them in the refrigerator to set. There is no need to grease the pan or molds as this comes out pretty easily.

Kiwi Gummies- Step Four:

After they’ve set, simply cut into squares and serve! They come out of the pan very easily. Once you score the gummies with a butter knife, you can practically pick up an entire row with the knife and set it onto a plate.

We really had a hard time not shoveling these in our faces. They’re the delicately sweet and sour flavor you love from kiwis with the health benefits of the gelatin with neat occasional crunches of the kiwi seeds. Truly a unique and fun treat that is very easy to make.

I also highly recommend these for when little ones might not be feeling well as they’re easy to handle, deliver much-needed nutrients, and can be soothing to a sore throat or upset tummy.

    Great idea! I’ve been looking for simple paleo desserts for an upcoming bake sale, we have a lot of people with dietary restrictions. I’m going to try this with agar powder.

  • Stephanie March 20, 2015, 2:12 pm

    Great idea Katherine! Agar powder is another Paleo and vegan friendly option that would work quite nicely! Good luck at the bake sale – but keep these cold like jello!

    What a great idea!

  • Stephanie March 20, 2015, 2:12 pm

    Thanks so much Pam! I hope you enjoy it!

  • Elizabeth March 20, 2015, 3:55 pm

    Mmm what a great idea! I wonder if they would work with a vegetarian gelling agent.. curious! 🙂 Stumbled & pinned to try later!

  • Stephanie March 20, 2015, 5:01 pm

    Yes I think it would work well with agar! I’m going to work on a variation like that soon! Thanks for visiting Elizabeth!

    Stephanie,
    These gummies look delicious–and so easy to make! My daughter is a particular fan of kiwi, so I think I need to grab a box of unflavored gelatin to have on hand. I’ve got some fresh lime juice waiting to be used, and that should substitute for the lemon just fine.
    Thanks!

  • Stephanie March 21, 2015, 1:01 am

    Great Kirsten! Sounds like a plan! You’ll be pleasantly surprised how easy it is to make a healthy snack like this! The possibilities are endless!

  • cristina March 20, 2015, 9:31 pm

    What a tasty, healthful treat! I luv what you did with the kiwi making these sweet treats. 🙂

  • Stephanie March 21, 2015, 1:00 am

    Thanks Cristina! I appreciate the kind words!

  • Healing Tomato March 20, 2015, 10:10 pm

    This is a great recipe for the first day of Spring. I can’t wait to get some kiwi from the store and try this. Would the recipe work if I added chunks of Strawberries along with the Kiwi? I would to try that.

  • Stephanie March 21, 2015, 12:59 am

    I think strawberries sound delicious! I wish I had thought of that! Thanks Rini 🙂

  • Heather / girlichef March 21, 2015, 3:05 pm

    These are so fun, I bet the kids and adults in my house would adore them equally!

  • Stephanie March 22, 2015, 12:09 am

    We sure did in this house! Enjoy 🙂

  • Liz @ I Heart Vegetables March 23, 2015, 6:52 am

    Wow, this is such a creative recipe! As a gummy bear fanatic, I think I HAVE to try this 😉

  • Stephanie March 23, 2015, 8:45 am

    Yes Liz! The cool thing is you can change it up depending on how “gummy” you want it. At the lowest level of gelatine it’s like jello, then gets more gummy-like as you increase the gelatine to your fancy 🙂
