  • Yields

    45-50 Gummies



  1. Place watermelon in a blender or food processor, and turn on for a few seconds until it’s all liquid. Place a fine mesh strainer over a bowl, and pour the watermelon puree through. You’ll be left with about 1 cup of watermelon juice in the bowl that you’ll use for this recipe. You can discard the pulp in the strainer (or save it for use in baked goods).
  2. Place watermelon juice in a medium pot over low heat. Add lime juice and honey. Continue to heat on low, whisking a few times, until everything is combined and hot (do not boil).
  3. Whisk in gelatin and remove from heat. Continue whisking for another 30 seconds. If there are any chunks of gelatin remaining, just scoop them out.
  4. Use a dropper to place the mixture in silicone molds. Pop in the freezer for about 15 minutes (or in the refrigerator for an hour), then enjoy! To store, keep in the fridge for up to 4 days.

How are these ‘Protein’ gummies?

Team Watermelon

Hi PJ! One of the four ingredients in these gummies from registered dietitian Chrissy Carrol is gelatin which contains protein. Enjoy!


Love these! A tad tangy, I’ll lessen the lime just a tad next time. Was my first time making homemade gummy bears, and it was so easy. I will definitely do these again! Great recipe!

I would hardly consider gelatin a protein source. 1.6g in 0.5cups! Why don’t we say it’s good for joints and skin!
