I’ve had this recipe for years and years but never tried it. In fact, I can’t even remember where I found it. Turns out one of the local Asian markets started selling red dragon fruit, so I thought that now’s the time to make these.
I kind of wish I wouldn’t have. They weren’t terrible, but I learned that homemade gummies just don’t cut it. If you’re into homemade gummies, I encourage you to make these, but they just weren’t our thing.
What you’ll need
- 0.5 cup dragon fruit
- 0.5 cup blackberries or raspberries
- 1T honey
- 2T gelatin
- 2T lime juice
- 0.5 cups water
What to do
Spray your gummy mold with non-stick cooking spray and set aside. I actually used a silicone mold, so they were really easy to release.
Place the water, dragon fruit and blackberries in a pan over medium heat.
Cook, stirring frequently, for 5-7 minutes until the fruit starts to break down.
Remove from heat and puree with an immersion blender or your regular blender. If you use a regular blender, make sure to vent the lid so the hot mixture doesn’t shoot out the top.
However you blend the fruit, return the pureed mixture to the pan and quickly stir in the honey and lime juice.
Next, gradually whisk in the gelatin until it’s well combined.
Using a tablespoon, add the mixture to the molds, being careful to fill to the top of the molds, but not over-filling.
Let the mixture cool in the mold on the countertop before putting it in the refrigerator to allow the gummies to firm up.
When their chilled and firm, flip the mold upside-down and pop out the gummies.
