Prep Time10 minsCook Time2 minsTotal Time12 mins

I N G R E D I E N T S //
 1 cup chopped fruit (main fruit flavor)
 ¼ cup chopped fruit (secondary fruit flavor)
 ¼ cup organic, sugar free apple juice
 1 tbsp monkfruit sugar (add more to taste in increments of 1 tbls. at a time)
 ¼ tsp vanilla extract
 3 tbsp Vital Farms Beef Gelatin

Once you have decided which flavor combos you're going to make from my above suggestions (or maybe you're getting creative on your own!) go ahead and give your fruit a rough chop and set it out to easily grab. Then you should set out the rest of your ingredients and equipment to have ready.
You'll need a Vitamix or blender, small saucepan, the silicone molds, droppers and a whisk.
Be sure to place your molds on a cookie sheet or something that allows for easy transfer to the fridge!

2

In your Vitamix (this is preferred because it blends things up so well, but other blending methods can be used), add in all the fruit, apple juice, vanilla extract and Monkfruit sugar. Blend everything up until it is a liquid, then dip your spatula or a spoon in and give it a taste test. If you prefer it to be a little sweeter, add in another Tbls. of monkfruit sugar. Blend it up a bit more and then you're ready to heat it up in the saucepan.

3

On the stove over low-medium heat in a small saucepan, dump in your blended fruit mix. Mix in 3 Tbls. of gelatin and whisk into the fruit until it's completely dissolved. Should take about 2minutes. Don't allow the mixture to boil!

4

Now, remove the fruit mix from the heat and begin to use the dropper to add in the mix to the molds! Once they are filled, you will place the molds in the fridge for 2 hours to set up. Then you're ready to pop them out and ENJOY!
Pro Tip: you may have more mix than what fits into one of the molds. So add any extra you may have into a glass bowl and let it set on the counter. Once your first batch has cooled and you've popped them out of the mold, then you can reheat the fruit mix slightly (takes only 15 seconds or less in the microwave) and make another batch! If you have multiple molds, then you won't need to worry about this step!
