Green Tea, Lemon & Ginger Gummies

I love making gummy snacks. They’re a great way to add extra grass fed gelatin to my food routine and they’re fun, to boot! I wanted to make a batch that weren’t full of sugar – so I came up with these Green Tea, Lemon & Ginger Gummies.

Instead of relying on fruit juice to flavor my gummies, I brewed myself up some nice strong green teaΒ and then added a few other ingredients to pep it up a little more. Recently, I discovered a new-to-me product: ginger juice! It’s exactly what it sounds like: fresh pressed, liquid ginger. Which made it perfect for gummy making – no grating or steeping was needed. Pro tip – I bought my ginger juice for about half the price of what it goes for on Amazon. Take a peek in stores somewhere near the Thai and Indian seasonings and ingredients: that’s where I found my bottle.

The ginger adds a really nice kick to the gummies without being crazy overpowering. I love how it balances the sour lemon juice and it’s got just enough heat that I don’t miss the sugar in other gummy recipes. You could, however, add a little raw honey to this recipe if you wanted.

Using this adorable gingerbread man silicone mold, I got about 20 large ginger gummies. You can make them in whatever molds you like, or simply pour the mixture into a baking dish and then cut into pieces once it has set.

These cute little Ginger Gummies are compliant with theΒ Autoimmune Protocol!

  1. Does this add the value as other gree tea supplements or is it just a snack sort of thing? Please dont get me wrong, very creative and different and I love the concept and will end up trying but the green tea supp I take is somewhat strong at times…

    1. Hi Kelvin, sorry for the slow reply! I’m not familiar with specific green tea supplements, but I suspect they would have larger amounts of antioxidants than just the 4 bags of tea I brewed for the gummies.

  2. Hello! For starters, thanks for your recipe. I love gummies but we tossed all processed (for lack of a better word) crap in our home. No white sugar, no candy, nothing that we do not make from whole fresh foods by scratch. But I love gummy candies. Lately I chew on ginger all day long as a substitute and then I started looking for ginger gummy recipes tonight.

    I was wondering if you have ever tried making them with just ginger juice, gelatin and nothing else? If not, do you think that would work? Or do you think I should use ginger tea in place of the green tea and then just ginger juice and gelatin? Or does the lemon serve a purpose?

    Any ideas or help would be greatly appreciated.

    PS- How do you recommend I store these provided I actually don’t eat them all.

    1. I can’t think why straight ginger juice wouldn’t work, although it is expensive to buy unless you’re somehow making your own. I would personally try using a combination of steeped ginger tea and the ginger juice for extra flavor — the lemon juice isn’t necessary other than I liked the flavor combination in this recipe, so if you really want a pure ginger flavor, I’d leave it out. I like to keep mine in the fridge, especially at this time of year! Hope that helps! — Rach πŸ™‚

      1. Thanks. I keep a pound or two of ginger on hand for juicing. I think I will take your recipe with me to my friends house when the grass fed gelatin I ordered comes in. She has kiddos so I know I can try a few different versions there and have honest taste testers. Of course I won’t subject them to pure ginger ones, lol. By the way, I have Crohn’s and have noticed my daily ginger intake helps with the arthritis and gut issues.

        When I do make these do you mind if I share your recipe page along side my pictures of the gummies on my twitter feed? I love giving credit where credit is due.

        1. That’s interesting about ginger helping with your arthritis, thanks for sharing! If you’re modifying a recipe, the nice thing to do is to credit and link to the original recipe, but not to repost it in full — that way there’s no copyright infringement and if people are interested in seeing the original recipe, they can hop along to go see it. Hope your gummies turn out well! πŸ™‚

  3. If I don’t have liquid ginger, can I use ground ginger? If so how much should I us to equal the liquid version.

    1. I used the ginger juice because using a large amount of ground ginger would affect the texture of the gummies and leave a layer of sediment on the bottom. If you can’t find ginger juice local to you (it is on Amazon but at about double the price), I’d recommend you maker your own by grating up fresh ginger as shown here.

      1. I make my own ginger juice by chopping fresh ginger (across the grain to break up the fibre better) then put it in a high speed blender with just enough filtered or bottled water to allow it to break down in the blender. The pour it through a fine sieve over a bowl, press it down to get all the juice then bottle it in a glass bottle. This way you can also keep the left over pulp for cooking. Best to add a little citric acid to the pulp to preserve it longer and keep it in a glass jar. May not be as convenient as bought but it is far cheaper.

  4. I am very eager to try this recipe, I went through a lot of store bought ginger bears when I was on chemo and still have digestion problems. When looked at the recipe, the water is 3/4 however it doesn’t say 3/4 of what. Please let me know the correct water measurement.

  5. I have given this recipe a go, and it turned out much too runny, I added 3 teaspoons of honey, that was the only difference, I am going to give it another go, but what do you think I’ve done wrong?

    1. Hi Lynda, I see you sent me an email about this as well, where you say that you added the honey, some water and fresh ginger. I get so many spam comments here that any comments left won’t show up / be published here without being moderated first, which is why there’s a slight delay in me answering any comments that come in during the evening. Anyway! To answer your question, it seems that you’ve added enough liquid – between the additional water and the honey, which also contains water – that there’s not sufficient gelatin for your mixture to gel. I’d suggest you pour the unset mixture from your molds into a saucepan to warm, then add perhaps another tablespoon or so of gelatin (pre bloomed in a little water). Then once the gelatin has dissolved, you could re pour it into molds to set. The exact amount of additional gelatin required would depend on how much extra water you added. Make sure you’re using gelatin, not collagen, or they won’t set at all!

    1. Hey Kelsey, what kind of gelatin did you use? Did you accidentally use a non-gelling collagen instead?
