Fruit Jelly Gums

These cut-out jellies are just so pretty and infinitely healthier than any store-bought lollies. Free from refined sugars, they’re perfect treat for your little one to help you make.

Ingredients

250 g fresh strawberries, hulled
1 cup frozen raspberries, just thawed
2 tablespoons maple syrup
½ cup cold water
½ cup boiling water
5 tablespoons gelatine powder

  • Makes about 40 (depending on cutter size)

Method

Grease a 26 x 16 cm shallow, non-stick slice tin or glass dish lightly with oil.
Place the berries and syrup into a Thermomix or food processor and process until smooth. Strain through a fine sieve to remove the seeds.
Place the cold water into a large bowl or jug. Sprinkle over the gelatine and set aside for 2-3 minutes. Add the boiling water and whisk with a fork until dissolved. Add the strained fruit and stir to combine. Quickly pour into the prepared tin. Refrigerate for 30 minutes or until set.
Once set, turn out onto a chopping board. Cut into squares or use cutters to cut into desired shapes.

Tip: Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one week.
