Healthy Fruit Snacks

Do you {or your kids} love fruit snacks? Bummed out that they are delicious, but less than nutritious? 

I've got an easy, delicious solution for you: homemade fruit snacks with crickets AND veggies.

This isn't a long, complicated recipe that will have you slaving away in the kitchen for hours. It takes 10 minutes of prep and some patience while they set. You don't need to cut them into shapes like I did. They taste the same in squares, promise.

Berry Beet Fruit Snacks Ingredients: 2 cups of frozen or fresh berries (I used Aldi's Cherry Berry Blend) 1 small beet, steamed 1/4 cup of water 2 tbsp+ honey (adjust to your desired sweetness level) 5 packets of unflavored gelatin (or 5 tbsp if you buy in bulk) 2 tbsp of 100% cricket powder 1. First, line a 9" bread loaf pan with parchment paper and spray it with cooking spray (I like coconut oil cooking spray). 2. Place the fruit and cooked vegetable of choice in a high-speed blender. 3. Add the water, honey, and cricket powder. Puree until VERY smooth, at least 5 minutes. 4. Taste the mixture; add more honey if you think it needs it, and blend again until smooth. 5. Pour the mixture into a large-bottomed stock pot. Sprinkle the gelatin evenly over the surface. Do not touch for 5 minutes. 6. When the mixture is wrinkled on the surface, you can begin to whisk the gelatin into the fruit puree. Turn the burner to medium, and cook while whisking constantly until the mixture is smooth. At first, it will appear clumpy, but the heat will dissolve and make everything smooth. Do not let the mixture boil, but cook it until it's smooth. 7. Pour the mixture into the prepared loaf pan, and allow to set for at least 3-4 hours. I leave it overnight (covered). 8. Use mini pie cutters to cut out cute shapes. Use scissors to cut up the scraps into small pieces, and mix them into the shapes. #cricketpowder #recipe #healthysnacks #kidapproved #momapproved
