Makes: 20 x Jellies


230ml fruit or vegetable juice - I used apple and orange juice
4 tbsp powdered gelatin
2 tbsp of honey (not suitable for babies under 1 year)
Silicone moulds (optional)

Food colour options:

Orange – orange juice

Yellow – apple juice

Green – 1 handful of spinach (To use as a liquid: boil spinach with enough water to cover for 5 minutes. Drain and add spinach to a blender. Blend with a little of the cooking water until smooth. Strain and store for up to 2 weeks in your portion pots.)

Red – 1 beetroot, steamed (To use as a liquid: blended and strain beetroot. Store for up to 2 weeks in your portion pots.)

  1. Pour the juice into a small saucepan. Sprinkle the powdered gelatin over the liquid and let sit for 5 minutes.
  2. Stir the juice and gelatin to combine. Heat the mixture over a medium heat until the gelatin is completely dissolved but do not let boil. Turn off the heat.
  3. Stir in the honey and let it dissolve. Pour the mixture into silicone molds or your Mummy Cooks Portion Pots. We used the portion pot size 1oz/4m.
  4. Place in the fridge for 2-3 hours to set.
  5. Your homemade fruit jellies can be stored in our portion pots for about 1 week either at room temperature or in the fridge.
