Forget store-bought gummy snacks and whip up a batch of these kid-friendly treats, featuring a star ingredient (organic grapefruit!) that even the adults will want to dig into.

Grapefruit Jellies


  • 2 cups of fresh organic grapefruit juice (divided – 1 ½ cup and ½ cup)
  • 2 pkg of gelatin (approx. 3 tsp)
  • ½ tsp vanilla
  • 1 ½ Tbs sugar
  • 1”x1” chocolate/jelly silicon molds


In a heat safe glass bowl combine the gelatin and ½ cup of juice, stir and allow to sit and thicken. Bring the remaining 1 ½ cup of juice to a boil on the stovetop. Once the juice has reached boiling, remove from heat and allow to cool slightly. Add hot juice to gelatin mixture in a bowl and stir till everything is dissolved. Add vanilla and sugar and stir again until the sugar is dissolved. (May add additional sugar and vanilla if you would like to reduce the sourness of the grapefruit further). Pour mixture into jelly molds and place in the refrigerator overnight.

Makes approximately 32 1”x1” shapes.
