Peach and Rooibos Tea Gummies

September means one thing for a lot of people…
It’s when the schools go back and the new academic year begins.
This time of year comes with a multitude of feelings; a mixture of relief and excitement can also be topped off with that overwhelming feeling of “how am I going to keep on top of everything.”
One of those “things” is making sure your kids are well fed. This includes snacks they munch on when they get home and pile in front of the telly or ones they take to school and share with friends.
These Peach and Rooibos Tea Gummies not only include real peaches but using honey instead of sugar means you aren’t compromising on yumminess for health!
These are relatively easy to make, so if you can bare to work with gelatin, and have the time to wait for it to set… then you will have a tasty, homemade snack at your disposal!


1 3/4 cups of water
3 packets of powdered gelatin (3/4oz)
7 grams of rooibos tea
1 3/4 cups of frozen/fresh peach slices
1/3 cup honey

Line an 8×8 inch pan with parchment paper. Leave a little bit of paper hanging off the sides to make it easier to take out later.Pop that to the side for later.
You want to take the ¾ cup of the water and put it in a large bowl and sprinkle it with the powdered gelatin. You can set it to the side and wait for it to “bloom” (basically… thicken up!).
Put the leftover cup of water in a saucepan and bring to the boil. Once boiling take it off and steep your loose leaf tea in the water for 5 mins. Make sure it’s nice and strong!
Once it’s well infused, return the saucepan to a low-medium heat and add the sliced peaches and honey. Stir this occasionally. Cook this until the mixture is boiling and the peaches are soft!
Immediately transfer this into a blender and… well.. blend it up!
Pour the hot fruit mixture over the gelatin mix and let it sit for a minute before whisking until the gelatin is dissolved.
Pour it into your baking dish, cover it up and refrigerate for an hour or so: once set, lift it out and slice into cubes! Keep them in the fridge for a go to snack!

I don’t know about you, but I would rather have a handful of those than a handful of gummy bears. You can keep them in the fridge for a few days, or just eat them all at once! Plus, if you don’t fancy making cubed Gummies you can find some cool moulds online.
