DIY Peaches and Cream Gummies

The recipe is adapted and modified from one found in The Gelatin Secret.
Author: Stacy Karen

Ingredients

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
  • Blender
  • Silicone mold
  • Cookie sheet
  • Medium pot/saucepan
  • Space in the freezer for cookie sheet

Instructions

  • 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.
