Blueberry Homemade Vegan Gummies

Blueberry Homemade Vegan Gummies

 

Since posting my protein berry gummies, I have had so many questions about a vegan alternative! I have finally made a blueberry gummy that is totally vegan & delicious.

So, even if you’re not vegan but you just can’t stand the idea of gelatine these are for you! These are the perfect gelatine free sweets that still give you that satisfying gummy texture and flavour!

How to make Homemade Vegan Gummies

When I was a kid, I would (believe it or not) pick sweets over chocolate any day! The thought of sour candies, gummy bears, sour worms and all things brightly coloured excited me beyond measure! These days I have definitely become more of a chocolate girl, but these vegan gummies will forever hold a special place in my heart for that reason.

Now, we all know that gummy bears are usually just sugar and food colouring. A lot of people would classify them as empty calories, and in some ways they are. Now don’t get me wrong, I love having a few Haribo gummies here and there. But truth is they provide little to no nutritional value! This version atlas involves using real fruit, 0 added refined sugar & takes a total of 5 minutes to whizz up! They are also naturally gluten free, which is such a win!

Blueberry Vegan Gummies

When I was little, I would always go for the blue flavoured gummy! For some reason, this gummy would always look and taste the best. I have included two varieties. One where the blueberries are juiced then strained ( to create a clear type gummy) and the other where the blueberries are left in as is (the colour goes a little murkier & darker).

Blue Bear Gummies

Getting gummies to be blue was probably one of the hardest things to do! While I usually use blue spiralina, which can be used in this recipe. I am well aware that most readers probably do not have access to such an ingredient! I searched for many alternatives, and found that the best was to use a little natural blue food colouring. This ingredient is totally optional, but is important if you’re looking for a deep blue colour.

Homemade Gummies?

Now, I know it may seem a little intimidating! But, making your own gummies is SO INCREDIBLY EASY! Making them yourself, honestly takes you quicker than if you were to get in your car, go to the shops and buy them! All you need to do is blend up your ingredients, boil it on a stovetop, pour into your mould and you’re done! The best part about these vegan gummies is that they have no hidden nasties, are low calorie and great if you’re looking for something sweet to much at your desk or as an after dinner sweet snack

How Do You Make The Vegan Gummies?

The Ingredients

Blueberries- You can replace this with any berry of choice! For clear gummies, you can use blueberry juice instead of blending whole blueberries.

Lemon juice- Adds a delicious zing flavor

Stevia- I use stevia drops, but you can replace it with honey or maple syrup if prefereed

Agar Agar- Essential to it having a gummy texture

Method:

1.

In a high speed blender or food processor, combine all the ingredients above.
