Do you love gummy bears? Who doesn't? But have you ever taken a moment to think about how unhealthy they can be? Most store-bought versions are loaded with sugar and other harmful ingredients. 

Wouldn't it be fantastic if you could prepare your gummies at home, using only natural ingredients? It's easier than you might think. This blog post will show you five easy steps to make your gummies.

What Are Gummies?

Gummies are a kind of candy made from gelatin, sugar, and flavorings. Gelatin is a protein that is derived from collagen, which is found in animal skin and bones. It's what gives gummies their chewy texture. Sugar is, well, sugar. And the flavorings can be anything from fruit juice to CBD oil.

Why You Should Make Your Gummies

You may wonder why you want to make your gummies when you can buy them at the store. There are a few reasons

  • First, as we mentioned before, store-bought gummies are often loaded with sugar and other unhealthy ingredients.

  • Second, making your gummies allows you to control the ingredients that go into them. You can use all-natural, healthy ingredients, and you can even make them sugar-free if you want.

  • Third, making your gummies is just fun. It's a great and fun activity to do with kids or friends.

We hope we've convinced you if you were on the fence about making your gummies. Let's look at what you'll need to get started.

What You'll Need to Make Gummies At Home

Before we look into the steps of making gummies, let's look at what you'll need.

  • Gelatin: This is the key ingredient in gummies. You can find it at most grocery stores or order it online.

  • Fruit juice or puree: This is what will give your gummies their flavor. You can use any fruit juice or puree that you like. Just make sure that it's 100% juice with no added sugar.

  • Coconut oil: You'll need this to help the gummies release from the mold.

  • Gummy bear mold: You can find these online or at some kitchen stores. If you can't find a gummy bear mold, you can use any silicone mold you like.

  • Candy thermometer: This is optional, but it will help you to get the perfect consistency for your gummies.

If you're looking to make CBD gummies in UK, you'll want to get CBD isolate or broad-spectrum CBD oil, gelatin, agar powder, fruit juice, and a gummy bear mold. Now that we've gone over what you'll need, let's move on to the steps of making gummies.

Step One: Heat The Fruit Juice Or Puree

The first step is to heat the fruit juice or puree. You'll want to do this in a saucepan over low heat. If you're using a candy thermometer, you'll want to heat the mixture until it reaches 200 degrees Fahrenheit. If you don't have a candy thermometer, that's okay. Just heat the mixture until it starts to simmer.

Step Two: Add The Gelatin

Once the mixture is heated, you'll want to add the gelatin. You'll want to use one tablespoon of gelatin for every cup of fruit juice or puree. So if you're using two cups of juice, add two tablespoons of gelatin. Stir the product until the gelatin is completely dissolved.

Step Three: Add The Coconut Oil

The next step is to add coconut oil. You'll want to use one teaspoon of coconut oil for every cup of fruit juice or puree. So if you're using two cups of juice, add two teaspoons coconut oil. Stir the mix until the coconut oil is completely dissolved.

Step Four: Pour The Mixture Into The Molds

It's time to pour the mix into the molds. If you're using a candy thermometer, you'll want to ensure that the mixture is no more than 80 degrees Fahrenheit when you pour it into the molds.

If you don't have a candy thermometer, ensure the mixture is not too hot. You don't want it to boil when you pour it into the molds.

Step Five: Let The Gummies Set

The last step is to let the gummies set. You'll want to place the molds in the fridge and let them sit for at least two hours. Once they're firm, you can pop them out of the molds and enjoy one.

And there you have it. Five easy steps to making your gummies at home. Just remember to use all-natural, healthy ingredients, and you can make them sugar-free if you want. Try and play around with different fruit juices and purees to find the perfect flavor combination for you. And have fun.

Sourcing the best ingredients is crucial to making delicious and healthy gummies. Use fruit juices with no added sugar, and look for high-quality gelatin. Once you've got your ingredients sorted, the actual process of making gummies is pretty simple.
