How to Make Kombucha Gummies

There are lots of different ways to make gummies, and the flavors you can dream up are pretty endless, but these gummies feature kombucha, a fermented tea that contains probiotics. (Read how to make homemade kombucha here.) Gelatin is used to thicken the mixture and produce a gummy-like texture. (Click to read more about the benefits of gelatin.)

There is no added sugar in this recipe, so they won’t be super-sweet, and I prefer them that way because it means I won’t want to eat the whole batch at once. Plus, these are more of a way to get gelatin as a supplement rather than eating highly-sweetened treats.

Making Kombucha Gummies Into Shapes

You can use an kind of silicone mold to make these homemade kombucha gummies. I used Lego-shaped molds because, well, I’m sort of a Lego nerd! You can find all sorts of awesome silicone molds, such as hearts, gingerbread men and dinosaurs—but if you don’t have any, you can simply use a greased baking dish and cut squares once it’s hardened. It’ll be much firmer than traditional Jello.

I used two Lego molds for a total of about 20 gummies. As a supplement, the maker of the high-quality gelatin I like recommends a serving of 1 tablespoon of gelatin a day which works out to about 5 gummies.

Change Up This Kombucha Gummies Recipe

  • Use 100% fruit juice or tea instead of kombucha.
  • You can try adding a bit of honey if it’s not sweet enough for your tastebuds, but I haven’t tested out this variation.
  • Use other fruit instead of strawberries and mango. (Caution! Do not use pineapple or kiwi, because these fruit contain enzymes that destroy the gelatin’s ability to set.)
  • Use frozen fruit instead of fresh.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup strawberries chopped
  • 1/2 cup mango chopped
  • 1 cup kombucha any flavor
  • 4 tbsp high-quality gelatin

Instructions

  1. Set your molds out ahead of time on a sheet tray. If you don’t have molds, you can pour the mixture into a greased baking dish and cut squares after it’s set. Hint: Clear a space in your refrigerator for your molds.
  2. Puree the chopped strawberries and mango in a food processor or using an immersion blender. You should end up with about 1 cup of fruit puree. Set aside.
  3. In a small pot over low heat, warm the kombucha very gently. You only want to warm it enough to dissolve the gelatin but not kill the probiotics in the kombucha. Do not boil the kombucha.
  4. Whisk in the gelatin, 1 tablespoon at a time. There will likely be some foam because of the kombucha carbonation. You can skim it off if you’d like.

  5. Now, whisk in the fruit puree until everything is mixed.
  6. Quickly fill the molds with the gelatin mixture. Refrigerate until set, usually 1–2 hours.
  7. Store tightly wrapped in the refrigerator and consume within 1–3 days. The gummies will lose water the longer they sit, making them chewier.
