My kids love gummy lollies, what child doesn’t, right? However, the ingredients list of the most popular Australian jelly snakes makes me cringe. This is exactly why I have made these raspberry and orange jellies. So now, anytime my kids ask me if they can have some lollies, I say – yes, of course!

Ingredients for homemade jelly lollies

oranges, lemon, raspberries and honey
  • Raspberries are low in calories but high in fiber, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.
  • Freshly squeezed orange juice is high in many nutrients, including vitamin C, folate, and potassium.
  • Lemon juice excellent source of vitamin C.
  • Organic raw honey contains many antioxidants. But please don’t rush and eat the honey with a spoon. It is still very high in sugar.
  • High-quality gelatin is rich in proteins and has a unique amino acid profile.

Have I convinced you to give this delicious snack recipe a go? Let’s do it!

Servings 50 jellies


  • 1 cup of raspberries I always use frozen berries for this
  • 1/4 cup of water
  • Freshly squeezed juice of 3 large oranges
  • Freshly squeezed juice of 1 lemon
  • 2.5 tbsp gelatin see note!
  • 1 tsp of organic raw honey


  • Add water and the raspberries into a small pot, bring to simmer, DO NOT boil the raspberries.
  • Add the orange, honey and lemon juice and once again bring to simmer without boiling the mixture.
  • Add the gelating and stir the mixture for a couple of minutes until the gelatin is fully dissolved.
  • Pour into the molds or any other flat container you have on hand and let it set in the fridge for a couple of hours. The jelly will be very firm once it has set.

  • Once the jelly has set, take it out of the moulds. If you don't have the special moulds, like me, simply use small cooky cutters. You also can just cut the jellies into any shapes you like using a knife.
  • Store in an airtight container and refrigerate. They will keep for two weeks, but I honestly don’t think they will last for so long! Enjoy!!


Only use good quality gelatin. Check out this gelatin or this agar agar powder if you are vegan.
