Homemade Fruit Snacks

Contributed by Dianne Love

Make your own homemade fruit snacks for the perfect after-school snack! Try this simple recipe using your favorite Old Orchard juice!


  • 1 1/2 cups your favorite Old Orchard fruit juice-- I like Healthy Balance Cherry flavor 
  • 4 tablespoons powdered gelatin
  • 2-4 tablespoons honey


  1. Put the juice into a small saucepan.
  2. Sprinkle the powdered gelatin over the liquid and let sit for a few minutes,until the gelatin blooms.
  3. Stir to combine. Heat the mixture over medium heat until the gelatin is completely dissolved – do not let boil--until it no longer has a gritty texture between your fingers.
  4. Turn off the heat. Stir in the honey. Use less honey for sweeter juices, to taste.
  5. Pour the mixture into silicone molds, or a small shallow pan or plate.
  6. Place in the fridge for 2-3 hours to set.
  7. If not using molds, use a knife to loosen one edge of the set mixture and gently peel it out of your container. Use a paring knife to slice into cubes.

Your homemade fruit snacks can be stored in an airtight container for about 1 week either at room temperature or in the fridge.
