Creamy Lemon Gummies

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Even adult kids love these gummies!  These snacks may be eaten chilled or at room temperature.  The texture will become slightly softer at room temperature, which some people actually prefer.

1-13.66 fl oz can coconut milk
1 cup fresh-squeezed lemon juice
¼ cup grass-fed bovine gelatin*
½ cup raw honey


In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine coconut milk and 1/2 cup lemon juice.

Warm to just simmering, whisking occasionally.


While mixture warms, whisk gelatin into the remaining 1/2 cup lemon juice until thoroughly combined. Set aside for 1 minute at room temperature to allow gelatin to bloom.

Once coconut mixture is lightly simmering, whisk in gelatin mixture until completely dissolved with no lumps.  Remove from heat.

While still warm, whisk in raw honey.

Pour into an 8½ x 11 glass pan.  Chill overnight, or until firm.  Cut around the edge of the pan.

Flip pan over and let sheet of lemon gelatin rest on a cutting board.  Cut gummies into desired shapes.

* I used Great Lakes Gelatin for this recipe, and the type of gelatin CAN change the end result.

    If you cut the gummies into shapes instead of squares, can you reheat the scraps in order to re-cut?

    Also, can you post a link to the exact gelatin you use and where you source it from?

    These look amazing! I have been looking for different gummy-type snacks for my son that aren’t full of processed ingredients but still taste good. How long do these last? And do they need to be kept in the fridge or will they be okay in a sealed container in the pantry? Thank you for posting this recipe! I can’t wait to try it this weekend.

    I tried to make these yesterday. The flavor is great, but I could not get the coconut milk to incorporate with everything else. When I went to chill them, it rose to the top. Lemon on bottom and coconut on top. Any ideas what I’m doing wrong? I used refrigerated coconut milk instead. Could that be the issue? I already had it on hand. TIA.
