With just 2 simple ingredients, 2-Ingredient Fruit Juice Gummies are a fun treat to make at home!
Who knew gummies were so easy to make at home?
I know I didn't. But after a few trial runs, I found that they are both incredibly simple to make and even more fun to eat.
Once you've gathered your ingredients, the process couldn't be easier. Simply heat the juice until warm (but not boiling), whisk in the gelatin, pour into molds, and refrigerate.
Once chilled, the final result resembles a very firm Jello (remember those Jello gigglers?), and since they contain both protein from the gelatin and just natural sugar from the fruit juice, they make the perfect little treat anytime.
I love experimenting with different fruit juice flavors and colors to mix things up, and inviting Elle to help with the process.
She loves selecting the juices, whisking the ingredients together, and is thrilled when we pop the chilled gummies out of the molds.
And of course, eating the final product. I have to admit, I love these too, and find they make the perfect after dinner treat.
I hope you'll try these soon. Now, let's make some 2-Ingredient Fruit Juice Gummies!
RECIPE & KID-FRIENDLY ADAPTATIONS
1 | Use any fruit juice you like to make these gummies fun flavors and colors. Just be sure to avoid pineapple, kiwi, or papaya, as they won't gel properly.
2 | Add a few tablespoons of honey or maple syrup if you prefer a sweeter gummy.

2-Ingredient Fruit Juice Gummies
1 cup 100% fruit juice*
2 tablespoons gelatin**
1. In a small pan, heat the juice until very warm but not boiling.
2. Turn off the heat and whisk in the gelatin until smooth.
3. Allow to cool slightly, then pour into silicone molds.
4. Refrigerate for 1-2 hours until set.
5. Serve or store, refrigerated, for up to 5 days.
**Most 100% fruit juices or nectars will work here. I used white grape juice with a few drops of raspberry juice add for color, nectarine nectar, and concord grape juice. Pineapple, kiwi, and papaya will not work for this recipe.
**I used this grass-fed gelatin for this recipe, but any unflavored gelatin will work.
Any silicone mold will work for these gummies. I used this bunny shaped mold to make the gummies pictured.
