Strawberry Gummies

Note from Heather: Pinch me! I woke up this morning to the sound of crashing waves and seagulls. The potami are headed down to the beach to try to spot some dolphins, but before we go I wanted to share with you this easy, healthy snack recipe from my friend Sylvie of Hollywood Homestead.

It features one of my favorite ingredients, which just so happens to make skin look more youthful, support restful sleep, and make delicious treats. Thanks for sharing with us, Sylvie!

What if there was one simple superfood . . .

That worked as bone building fuel for growing kids, a natural “botox” for mom, and scored you major dessert points with the whole family? What if you could make strawberry gummies that are both nutrient dense and delicious?

I know, I know, when something sounds too good to be true it often is. But gelatin (the great quality, pastured kind) really does live up the hype and you really can make some tasty treats with it like puddings, custard, gummies, “jello” and many more.

My gelatin obsession started when my oldest (then 14 years old) was about to have major spinal surgery for her severe scoliosis. That sent me down the rabbit hole of what the optimal nutrition is for bone health and surgery recovery. The doctors and post-op nurses at the hospital were shocked at how quickly she recovered and gelatin had a huge part in making that happen.

I had no choice but to create The Gelatin Secret to share all the ways something so simple as homemade bone broth and homemade jello can be so impactful to every single part of our bodies.

Along the way I learned that regularly consuming gelatin and collagen work as “botox” for the skin as well! Preventing and reversing wrinkles, cellulite and stretch marks are a nice bonus, kind of like those funny parts in kids’ movies these days that they sneak in just for us parents. 😉

The list of conditions and symptoms that gelatin can help with is borderline ridiculous!

Here are just a few:

  • Multiple allergies
  • Food sensitivities
  • Joint and mobility pain
  • Chronic abdominal pain
  • Abdominal tenderness
  • Acne and blemishes
  • Dull and fragile hair
  • Tooth decay and sensitivity
  • Brittle nails
  • Stomach cramps, bloating and constipation
  • Hormonal imbalance
  • Rollercoaster weight gain
  • Stress-induced insomnia
  • Wrinkles and stretch marks
  • Anxiety and fatigue

Luckily, adding gelatin to your diet and your kids diet is not only easy, it’s delicious! This strawberry gummies recipe is from my ebook, The Gelatin Secret, which goes into detail about how gelatin nourishes each part of our body and includes many recipes, both savory and sweet so you can jumpstart your journey to health right away.

  • Combine strawberries, lemon juice, and honey on low heat in a small saucepan on the stove.
  • Stir until warm, not hot as it will kill the probiotic quality in the honey.
  • Add 7 T. of the gelatin and immediately mix with an immersion blender until smooth and lump free.
  • Pour strawberry mixture into molds, but ONLY fill each on halfway (the rest of the space will be filled by the cream).
  • Put the strawberry molds in the freezer. For easy transport, place the silicone mold on a cookie sheet.
  • Combine the coconut milk, vanilla, and maple syrup in a clean saucepan and warm on low.
  • Add 6 T. gelatin and mix immediately with immersion blender.
  • Take out the strawberry molds and complete the pouring with the cream portion.
  • Put back in the freezer for 30 minutes.
  • Bring out and let sit until room temperature. Store for a week at room temperature, refrigerate if they manage to last longer than that. Enjoy!

    • There are 40+ recipes that range from savory side dishes to condiments to ice cream and chocolate pudding. There are also sections that cover the benefit in addition to the recipes 🙂

  1. Am excitedly making this right this minute! Question: next time, can I simply combine all of the ingredients (instead of making layered gummies)?

  2. This looks like a fantastic recipe!!! I would love to make it, but before I do…. Can the lemon juice be omitted? Or is there a substitute? My daughter is allergic to citrus and trying to find substitutes is not easy.

  3. I think my kids would love these and I am interested in adding gelatin to my diet. However I have hated jello or gelatin my whole life. Does anyone know if it’s possible to get the benefits of gelatin in my diet without ‘setting’ it? How would I go about that?

    • The same company makes a cold water soluble gelatin. I put a couple tablespoons in my morning smoothie or oatmeal daily. You can also add it to your tea, or just about anything! It doesn’t gel.

  4. I’ve been eating gelatin for a while now, and I noticed something unexpected. It stirs in far easier in cold water. I like to mix it in with whatever I’m making, stir it thoroughly, and THEN gently heat to dissolve the gelatin. You should try this and see if you get similar results. I was so surprised, all the old jello boxes from my childhood said to use hot water!

  5. Is there something I can use in place of coconut milk? We do not use coconut milk, and when looking at the closest store at options the other day, none of them caught my eye in regards to ingredient list.

  6. I don’t have an immersion blender. Is there something else I can use in its place that would do a good job of blending??

  7. Hello!

    How can I substitute coconut milk for cow or oat/almond milk? We absolutely hate coconut… :/

    And maple syrup? Is it ok to use honey to substitute that?


  8. We are transitioning my 4 year old daughter to a low FODMAP diet…and honey is a no go. Can we do this without the honey? Thanks so much!

  9. This recipe came up on my screen as a fodmap dessert. Yet it calls for honey which is a no no for IBS like symptoms. Disappointing.

    • Hi Jill, where did it come up as a fodmap dessert? That’s not a designation I made, so I’m curious about the source. Sorry it’s not a good fit for you.

  10. I just came across your site and have tried the sour gummies recipe and my kids liked them so I decided to try these… I decided to make the strawberry and cream part and put them in separate molds as the ones I was using (little hearts for my little valentines!) were quite small… I finished up the strawberry ones and they are a huge hit but I’m not at all impressed with the recipe for the “cream” part… Is there perhaps a typo there that it should say “2 teaspoons vanilla extract”, instead of the “table spoons” the cream portion came out with such a strong alcahol flavor from the vanilla that I had to add more syrup to balance it out a bit and they’re still not very good. 🙁 maybe I missed something else but I’ve reread several times and can’t figure it out.

  11. I need more molds! They are the best to eat in shapes, I think. They are super delicious. All the ratios worked out nicely too.

  12. Have you tried the method you used on your sour gummies? Putting the gelatin in while cold instead? Then warming it? Will it still gel? Help.

    • Hi Lindsay! Because these gummies are a food rather than a medicine or supplement there isn’t really a specific recommended “dosage.” I personally just follow my instincts on what feels like a good amount at the time. 🙂

  13. Hi!
    I am wondering about the vanilla. If I’m using alcohol (Vanilla), then at what point is this treat okay for kiddos? After being frozen and thawed or? Someone above said they thought it should be 2tsp. Vanilla, but it does say Tbsp. Please advise.

  14. Just a concern… I headed over to buy The Gelatin Secret ebook. Looks terrific, but the payment page is http not https. There is a PayPal option, thankfully. I would not enter credit card information on an http page :/

    These are so tasty! I love the way they turned out made exactly as written. Thanks for sharing. When strawberries are in season this year, I plan to puree a bunch and freeze in 1-cup portions so making this anytime is not so time consuming.

    Just got done pouring into molds! So excited for these since my 4 year old is extremely picky and had tummy issues. Was a little disappointed that the cream layer is sort of brown instead of white like the picture. I’m sure it’s due to 2 tablespoons of vanilla! I was shocked to see that, and it tasted a little alcoholly but maybe it will taste better when set. Also I only had a about 1/8 fresh lemon juice, so I supplemented with ACV and I thought it tasted great! Thank you for this fun recipe! So exited to make gelatin a staple in our home (this is my first recipe with gelatin!)!

  17. My husband loves gummy bears and I would love to surprise him with these, but he is allergic to strawberries! Is this recipe good with any other fruit?

  18. How long did it take for you to see an effect on “gut health”? I have two kiddos with some lower GI issues and would love to know how fast they may see relief. Thanks!

  19. Hi
    My kids don’t like the taste of honey and maple syrups. Is there an alternate sweetener that is also healthy?
    Thank you

    Your nutrition information is impossible! Zero calories is a laugh! Haven’t made this recipe and probably won’t due to this deception.

    • Hi Virginia, this recipe was published before the software that automatically estimates nutrition facts was available. There’s no deception – the recipe was just missed when I manually updated most of the ones published on my site. The recipe now has nutrition estimates available.
