halloween fruit snacks.. a guest post from Uber Fresh

*This is a guest post from Alice Ger of Uber Fresh*

Halloween is around the corner, and we started thinking to ourselves, what are we going to give the cute kiddos that are going to stop by?  We cringed at the thought of high fructose corn syrup, food colorings and preservatives parading in a pretty wrapper. What we came up with: Healthy fruit snacks from organic, raw Uber Fresh juice! [And don’t forget the benefits from grass-fed collagen too!]

[recipe title=”Uber Fresh Halloween Fruit Snacks (GF, NF, DF)” servings=”enough for all the kiddos” time=”3 hours” difficulty=”easy”]

WHAT YOU NEED:       

  • 1/2 cup filtered water
  • 6 tablespoons of unflavored grass fed gelatin (I like THIS kind)
  • 1 and 1/2 cup of your favorite Uber Fresh Juice
  • candy molds – I bought several of these Halloween ones here
  • Optional: 2 tablespoons of organic, raw honey to add some extra sweetness to the vegetable juices

WHAT YOU DO:

*Have all ingredients ready and laid out before beginning as you’ll need to work quickly once you start.

  • boil ½ cup of water
  • place ½ cup Uber Fresh juice in a medium sized bowl
  • add gelatin and stir quickly to create a paste
  • quickly add the ½ cup boiling water and stir again briskly – a thick but mixable liquid should form
  • add the honey if desired
  • pour in the rest of the 1 cup Uber Fresh juice and continue to stir
  • using a spoon as the easiest and least messy way, pour the mixture into your molds as quick as you can without spilling
  • place in the fridge for 2-3 hours. When they’re done they’ll solidify and your Healthy Halloween gummy fruit snacks will be ready to share
  • ENJOY!

…And don’t forget to save some for the cute kids (big and small)! [/recipe]
