Homemade Gummy Bears Recipe

Homemade Gummy Bears Recipe

You can make this homemade gummy bears recipe in almost any flavor, using different combinations of freshly squeezed juices or pureed fruits. NOTE: Do not use pineapple; it contains enzymes that break down gelatin so it will not set properly. Below are three of my favorite recipes. Feel free to adjust ingredients and sweetness to your liking.

Each of the recipes below will yield about 120 homemade gummy bears.

  1. Combine all ingredients except gelatin in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Stir with a whisk.
  2. Gradually whisk gelatin into the mixture, stirring constantly. (Avoid dumping gelatin into the pan all at once, which will cause big globs of gelatin to remain in the finished product.)
  3. Continue heating over medium-low heat until all ingredients are well combined and gelatin is completely melted. (The mixture will change from a grainy, jelly-like consistency to a more glassy, smooth consistency when gelatin is all melted.)
  4. Place gummy bear mold on a cookie sheet (which makes it easier to move without spilling once filled). Pour mixture into silicone mold and place in freezer for about 20-30 minutes.
  5. Pop homemade gummy bears out of mold and store in an airtight container. They will keep in the refrigerator for a few weeks.


You can also pour mixture into a baking dish greased with coconut oil if you don’t have silicone molds. After the mixture is set up, cut with a knife or use cookie cutters to make any shape you like.
