Yields: 30 – 40 gummies

Detox time can often suck, you feel super restricted, there’s only so much you can do to make the food taste good, especially when you’re on the liver detox I do where there’s no salt! Whaaaatt!! 

Often the thing I find the hardest is not having something to chew or sink my teeth into, and sometimes I just crave a little something after dinner, so when I had the idea to create little healthy gummy lollies I was so excited! 

I actually tried and failed a number of times with this, but I am so pleased I persevered! 

I chose cranberry juice in particular because it is something I am drinking on my detox currently as it is an awesome diuretic (helping with fluid retention) which supports detoxification and pulls out the water stored in our fat. 

Cranberries themselves are also supportive for our lymphatic system – helping with things like cellulite and breaking down fatty particles in our body due to the flavonoids and enzymes inside.

The important thing here is that we aren’t using a crappy high sugar supermarket cranberry juice, but one that is pure cranberry juice, not concentrate! I personally used Lakewood Farms Organic Pure Cranberry here in NZ, just be sure to check the ingredients and sugar content on yours if you choose to use it.

You can replace cranberry juice with any other juice (again keep in mind the sugar content), I have also tried with lemon juice which is a bit sour but yummy! 

Side note: the gelatin is also amazing to support gut health and repair gut lining, so these gummies are a win win! Check out the recipe below 🙂 


–  1 cup cranberry juice (I used Lakewood Farms Pure Cranberry)
–  4 Tbsp. gelatin (I used the nutraorganics natural grassfed unflavoured)
–  3 Tbsp. stevia (you can use honey instead, I was just keeping the sugar way down)

METHOD (as adapted from @boobtofood)

  1. Add the cranberry juice to small – medium saucepan
  2. Sprinkle the gelatin over the juice (try spread it out evenly), and let it sit for a few minutes, this allows the gelatin to ‘bloom’
    You will notice a wrinkled look forming on the surface as the liquid absorbs the gelatin
  3. Stir the mixture together
  4. Put on a low-medium heat and stir gently until the gelatin has dissolved for around 5 minutes
  5. In the last minute or so add the stevia (or honey) and make sure this is well mixed through
  6. Remove from heat and pour into silicone moulds (I got mine from @littlegiantsstore and found using a tear dropper helped massively too. Alternatively you can use a container as long as it lifts out easily.
  7. Pop in the fridge for 2+ hours for it to set 
  8. Remove from moulds or cut them up (if in a container) and keep refrigerated for up to 14 days. Enjoy!

As always, if you do make this, be sure to tag me on social media @shereehannahwellness and let me know what you think 🙂
