DIY Peaches and Cream Gummies
- Peach layer:
- 4 ripe peaches, peeled and sliced
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1/4 cup lemon juice
- 7 tablespoons gelatin
- Cream layer:
- 1 can full-fat coconut milk
- 2 tablespoons vanilla
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 6 tablespoons gelatin
- You will also need:
- Whisk or immersion blender
- Silicone mold
- Cookie sheet
- Medium pot/saucepan
- Space in the freezer for cookie sheet
- Place sliced peaches in a blender, add lemon, maple syrup, and honey. Blend until smooth.
- Pour blended mixture into a saucepan and warm over medium heat, stirring occasionally.
- Prepare to add gelatin by measuring 7 tablespoons into a small bowl. This makes it easier to work fast, which is necessary so that clumps don't form.
- Gradually sprinkle gelatin into warm mixture and blend with immersion blender immeditaley. If you don't have an immersion blender, a whisk works too. Just sprinkle in a little gelatin and whisk in quickly. Repeat until all of the gelatin has been incorporated into the peach mixture.
- Don't be discouraged in some clumps form. The first time I made homemade gummies, I struggled to get them smooth. But, with practice, I rarely have any lumps to speak of.
- Place silicone mold onto a cookie sheet and pour peach mixture into the individual cavities of the mold, to about half way full (you may go to 3/4 full if you prefer less of the cream layer).
- Place tray (with silicone mold on it) into the freezer.
- While the peach layer is cooling in the freezer, prepare the cream layer.
- Place coconut milk, maple syrup, and vanilla into a medium pot, stir to combine. Warm mixture over medium heat, stirring occasionally.
- Once warm, add gelatin gradually (as directed above) and immediately blend with an immersion blender or whisk.
- Remove peach layer from freezer (keep it on the cookie sheet). If the peach layer is firm, pour cream mixture over the top and place back in freezer for 20-30 minutes (until firm).
- Once firm, remove from freezer and take each gummie out of the silicone mold.
- Gummies can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to two weeks.
- If you don't enjoy the cream layer, these would work perfectly with the peach layer alone. Peaches could also be substituted with strawberries or nectaries.
- If you enjoy these gummies, you may like my other favorite gummie recipe: Strawberry-Lime Gummies.
