Get Healthy: Homemade Fruit Snacks

These are wonderful. I think they may need a bit more gelatin powder in them than the recipe calls for. Play with it by adding a pinch more than the recipe calls for.

Ingredients:
1 cup of mixed berries, your choice (I used strawberries, blackberries, and blueberries)
1/4 c. water
1/2 c. unsweetened applesauce
1/2 c. fruit juice (I used Motts for Tots reduced sugar apple-grape juice)
2 envelopes of plain gelatin (1 envelope is equal to 2.5 teaspoons)

Bring the berries and water to a boil in a saucepan, and cook for about five minutes, until the berries are nice and soft. Transfer CAREFULLY to a blender, and puree until smooth.

Put the 1/2 cup of fruit juice in a separate bowl. Add the gelatin powder to the fruit juice, and set aside.

Return to the saucepan and add the applesauce. Bring to a boil again, then pour the hot mixture into the bowl with the fruit juice and gelatin.

Pour into 8×8 glass dish, and refrigerate until firm (like I said before, I think it needs a wee bit more gelatin). Cut into shapes of your choosing!
