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!
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…
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!
