Equipment

Ingredients

  • 10 ounces fresh or frozen organic blackberries
  • 1/4 cup honey or maple syrup
  • 1 cup water kefir (or milk kefir, kombucha, or unsweetened fruit juice)
  • 1/4 cup grass-fed gelatin
  • 1 tbsp probiotic powder (or empty a few capsules to obtain a similar amount)

Instructions

  • Add blackberries and honey to small pan, and simmer over low heat until blackberries have cooked and fall apart when stirred.
  • Put the mixture through a food mill or sieve to remove seeds. You'll end up with right about a cup of thick liquid once the seeds are removed.
  • Add water kefir, gelatin, and probiotic powder, and blend well with an immersion blender or whisk. If you're using a whisk, it works best to sprinkle the gelatin in slowly as you continually mix. If you're using the immersion blender, you can just dump it all in and blend.
  • Once the mixture is smooth and well blended, pour it into the cavities of your silicone gummi mold. I find that transferring portions of the mixture to a small measuring cup with a spout makes it easy to fill those tiny gummi bear cavities without making a mess! Some folks recommend using an eye dropper to make this part easier.
  • Allow the mixture to cool. They'll set just fine at room temperature, but putting them in the fridge or freezer for about 15 minutes speeds things up! I also find that the colder and firmer they are, the more easily they come out of the mold.
  • Store refrigerated, in an air-tight container.
