Healthy Fruit Snacks Recipe

These simple, healthy homemade fruit snacks are made with only 2 ingredients and one of them is juice! You will not believe how quick and easy they are to make.

This is a sponsored post.

When I was a little kid, I had the same thing in my lunch every single day: a ham and cheese sandwich with Miracle Whip, a package of fruity snacks, a cookie, and a juice box. I never remember anything else.

My kids, too, are totally enamored with fruity snacks. They love them.

So, when Juicy Juice® asked me to make a recipe from their website using their juice, I knew I would make their homemade fruit snacks recipe. Total no brainer.

Homemade fruit snacks

This recipe is super easy with only two ingredients. You do have to let it refrigerate for at least four hours, but as far as active cooking goes, it takes less than ten minutes. Allie helped me to make these fruity snacks one morning, and she was able to do most of the prep.

Prep Time 10 minutes
  1. Pour the Juicy Juice® into a small saucepan. Add the gelatin powder and allow it to absorb for a few minutes.
  2. Whisk the mixture gently to distribute any remaining gelatin powder.
  3. Heat on medium about three minutes, until the mixture gets thin and runny. Do not boil!
  4. Pour the mixture into a shallow pan. Use a spoon to fish out any clumps of undissolved gelatin.
  5. Refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight.
  6. Remove from the pan. (It will stick, but if refrigerated long enough will be very hard and easy to peel out of the pan. I ran a knife around the edge first and then peeled it right out.)
  7. Store in the refrigerator up to 2 weeks.

Healthier fruit snacks

These homemade Juicy Juice® fruit snacks taste just like the juice you use to make them, being that they are simply flavorless gelatin and the juice itself. We used fruit punch and apple juice this time, but I can’t wait to try them with orange tangerine and cherry. Cherry is my favorite!

You can find more awesome recipes on their website. Juicy Juice® 100% juice comes in 16 delicious flavors.

I am happy to serve it for my kids because I know there is never any sugar added, and one 8-ounce glass is equal to a 1-cup serving of fruit.

Juicy Juice® has a new look across all of their packaging.
