Paleo Sour Strawberry Gummies

Sour Strawberry Gummies | Plaid and Paleo

After reading lots of blogs and articles about the benefits of gelatin, I decided to get on the bandwagon. As a longtime sufferer of knee pain, I’d love to homeopathically help my knee rather than relying on pain medication. There are tons of benefits to consuming grass-fed gelatin. You can find out more here. I love how Rach from Meatified article breaks down all the benefits and reasons to use grass-fed gelatin. 

I tried two different methods to make my gummies. While both were successful, this one is definitely easier, and I believe fool proof! I made two flavors and can’t wait to make more. I’m pretty sure my body is going through sugar withdrawals, and I am only on day 7 of my Whole30! While I gave up processed sugar more than a year ago, I still relied heavily on honey to satisfy my sweet tooth. These gummies are sweetened purely with fruit, which I really love! It feels like a treat but is truly helping to heal my body. These sour strawberry gummies are a little tart but I like it!

    These were super easy to make, no clumping, set up really fast in the molds- came out easily. I added about 3T of honey for the sake of my 5 year old twins- next time I’ll probably add another tablespoon. VERY GOOD and gummy, thank you!

    Just made these and they are not bad but mine turned out more foamy than gummy and look more of a light milky pink. What did I do wrong? I did blend for a good bit after adding the gelatin but it was clumpy so I had to keep going…

      The color definitely depends on the ripeness of your strawberries. I used very ripe red strawberries, which gave these the bright color. As for the foaming, I have made these a bunch and there is usually a little foam especially towards the end of the batch. It is almost impossible to over blend. One option would be to blend then let the mixture sit for a couple minutes to let the foam dissipate a little before pouring them into the molds. Also what type of molds did you use?
