Ingredients
 
 

  • ¼ cup beets steamed and peeled (W)
  • 1 ¾ cups fresh blueberries (W)
  • ¼ cup water
  • 2 Tbs. honey
  • 2 Tbs. plain gelatin

Instructions
 

  • In a blender, combine beets and blueberries. Blend until smooth, about 1 minute.
  • Place a fine mesh strainer over a glass bowl or liquid measuring cup. Pour beet-blueberry puree into strainer. Using a spoon, work the mixture through until all the puree has been strained.
  • In a small saucepan, combine strained puree, water and honey. Over medium-low heat, bring mixture to a slow simmer.
  • Add in gelatin and use a silicone whisk to incorporate gelatin. Keep stirring until gelatin is completely dissolved, about 2-3 minutes.
  • Continue to stir mixture frequently and simmer about 5 more minutes or until mixture is shiny and smooth.
  • Place fruit snack molds onto a sheet pan. Using a dropper, fill each mold with fruit snack mixture. Each cavity in the mold holds about ¼ tsp. of liquid.
  • Cover fruit snack molds and refrigerate for 2 hours or until fruit snacks are set.
  • Remove fruit snacks from molds and place in an airtight container. Fruit snacks can be kept refrigerated for up to 7 days.

Notes

  • Prepackaged cooked beets are often found in the produce section near the salads and/or other prepackaged produce. They are a great time saver for this recipe!
  • This recipe uses fruit snack molds but you can also pour the mixture into a parchment-paper-lined pan and cut into squares or use cookie cutters to cut into fun shapes.
