Coconut Lemon Cream Fruit Snacks

by Lisa on January 31, 2013

I know, more fruit snacks?

I just can’t help it.

They’re easy and good, and awesome for you.

Side note: the Wine Fruit Snacks are still my favorite. I’ll let you know if that ever changes!

Coconut Lemon Cream Fruit Snacks

4 T coconut oil
2 cups coconut water
2 T maple syrup (I use Grade B)
1/2 t lemon stevia (add more to taste – I use NuNaturals)
juice of one lemon
1/2 cup gelatin (I use Great Lakes Kosher)

In a saucepan on low, melt the coconut oil, then mix in all ingredients except the gelatin. Add the gelatin 1 T at a time and mix well with a whisk (if you are too slow or put too much in at once, it will clump). I used the hand mixer with a whisk attachment.

Pour the mixture into molds or in a pan, and put in the fridge (this isn’t necessary but it speeds it up!).

I’ve been pouring my gummy mixtures into a baking pan and then once it is set, I use mini shapes/cutters to make the shapes. The molds take too long to fill for an impatient person like me. And if I’m not making it to show/give to anyone, I just cut them into squares.

 

These are definitely sweeter than I’m used to with the coconut water and the lemon stevia… but I love how the coconut oil made them creamy!

News/Notes:

I’ve mostly been working… and I’m enjoying that a lot since it is primarily on fun projects.

And doing a lot of this…

pb cup and coffee...

Also, this. It looks gross but it was really good---coconut flour flatbread with buffalo chicken and blue cheese.

Also, some kitchen fails... well, not a true fail. There's potential for this, and I'll still eat it, but it's not perfect...yet!

I like it when my kitchen fails are at least edible… this one is, especially with butter!

Any plans for the weekend? I’ve got a few things going on, plus work and K’s bday. Plus, of course, #WineFriday!

    Love these fruit snacks! I’ve been impatiently waiting for my great lakes gelatin to arrive in the mail so I can start experimenting with it. I’m going to try out some marshmallows, puddings, etc.. can’t wait!

    Oh, and every time you post those delicious looking coconut flour flatbread my heart breaks a little. Damn you egg allergy!

    I haven’t had fruit snacks in forever! These sounds awesome!

    I’ve had a couple of kitchen fails myself recently, mostly involving coconut flour! It’s all been edible, but I’m the only one here who’s interested in eating it. Oh well, more for me!

    I’ll be doing fruit snacks very soon. I’ve got gelatin, hopefully I’ll get to it this weekend, I’m looking forward to trying them!

    Excited to try this one with the coconut oil! Curious how many of these I should be consuming a day? THANKS!
