Ingredients
  • ⅔ cup fresh lemon juice or fresh orange juice (if you don't like sour go with orange, but I definitely prefer the lemon!)
  • ⅔ cup frozen or fresh berries (raspberries, blueberries, strawberries are all great.)
  • 1 - 2 Tbs honey
  • 5 Tbs gelatin (from grass fed cows... like this)
Instructions
  1. Pour juice and berries into a small saucepan. Heat over medium heat, stirring occasionally until berries become tender and begin to soften.
  2. Add honey and stir until completely incorporated. You will want the fruit to dissolve quite a bit until you have a compote.
  3. Turn the heat off, and quickly whisk in gelatin one tablespoon at a time. Whisk vigorously until completely incorporated, mixing the gelatin in very gradually to avoid lumps.
  4. Puree mixture using a immersion blender or small blender (my magic bullet works great for this! Just be sure to cool slightly before moving over.)
  5. Pour into a 8 x 8 or 9 x 9 glass dish. Refrigerate until set (30 minutes to an hour). Cut in small squares. (You could also use some cute molds like this and create awesome shapes. I'm not awesome like that... but you could be!)Note: I like to keep these homemade fruit snacks in my fridge (I love cold things!), but they do transport and keep nicely at room temperature.
