collagen protein gummy bears Recipe

Collagen gummies are a popular choice for those seeking a delicious and convenient way to incorporate more collagen into their diet. These gummies are typically made by dissolving gelatin (a form of collagen) in liquid such as fruit juice or water, sweetening it with natural sweeteners like honey or stevia, and then setting it into gummy form using silicone molds. The result is a tasty treat that offers the benefits of collagen without the added sugars and artificial colors commonly found in traditional candy.

Some popular flavors for collagen gummies include strawberry lemon, hot cinnamon cream, creamy mango mint, carrot & orange, peaches cream, coconut milk peaches honey, creamy mint chocolate, spiced apple pumpkin spice, raspberry honey frozen raspberries, apple lemon turmeric, and watermelon. These flavors not only make for an enjoyable eating experience but also offer additional health benefits from ingredients like antioxidant-rich fruits and anti-inflammatory turmeric.

Can I use any type of juice for a different flavor?

Yes, you can use any kind of juice–we prefer an all-natural fruit juice to keep the sugar contents down a little since you are already adding agave or honey. 

How long will these last?

We recommend consuming these within a few days since the agar agar will slow down the shelf life but not completely stop it.

Ingredients

Directions

  • I. Prepare the Mixture:
  • In a small saucepan, pour the cold water. Sprinkle the gelatin powder over the water and let it sit for a few minutes to bloom.
  • Once the gelatin has bloomed, place the saucepan over low heat. Stir continuously until the gelatin completely dissolves. Be careful not to let it boil.
  • Once the gelatin is fully dissolved, remove the saucepan from the heat.
  • II. Add Collagen and Sweetener:
  • While the gelatin mixture is still warm, add the collagen protein powder. Stir until the protein powder is fully incorporated.
  • Add honey or maple syrup to sweeten the mixture. Adjust the amount according to your taste preferences. Stir well to combine.
  • III. Add Fruit Juice:
  • Pour the fruit juice into the gelatin mixture. Stir until everything is well combined. The mixture should be smooth and uniform in texture.
  • IV. Fill the Molds:
  • Carefully pour the mixture into gummy bear molds using a dropper or a small spoon. Fill each mold cavity almost to the top, but leave a little space for expansion.
  • Gently tap the molds on the countertop to remove any air bubbles and ensure the mixture settles evenly.
  • V. Set the Gummies
  • Place the filled molds in the refrigerator for at least 1-2 hours to allow the gummies to set. You can also place them in the freezer for faster setting, but be cautious not to freeze them solid.
  • Once the gummies are set, remove the molds from the refrigerator or freezer.
  • VI. Unmold & Enjoy
  • Carefully pop the gummy bears out of the molds. If they're sticking, you can gently flex the molds to release them.
    Transfer the gummy bears to an airtight container for storage.
  • Enjoy your homemade collagen protein gummy bears as a nutritious snack or post-workout treat!

Notes

  • Experiment with different fruit juices to customize the flavor of your gummy bears.
    You can add a splash of lemon juice or a pinch of citric acid to enhance the tartness of the gummies.
  • If you prefer firmer gummies, you can increase the amount of gelatin slightly.
    Store the gummy bears in the refrigerator to maintain their freshness and texture.

Collagen gummies can be made at home using high-quality grass-fed gelatin sourced from ethical animal welfare practices. This ensures that the final product contains all the necessary amino acids needed for optimal collagen production and overall health benefits. Additionally, these homemade gummies can be made with low sugar options like stevia or erythritol to further enhance their nutritional value.

Compared to traditional candy which often contains high amounts of refined sugars and artificial colors that contribute to inflammation and potential health issues over time, collagen gummies offer a guilt-free dessert option loaded with protein and other essential nutrients that support healthy skin, hair, joints, bones, and overall wellbeing. Furthermore, making your own collagen gummies at home allows you to control the ingredients used ensuring they align with your dietary preferences and goals.
