These vegan blackcurrant gummies, made without the artificial colours and flavourings, are quick & easy to make. All you need is 100% juice and Agar powder to make these healthy treats at home.


1 cup of juice*
1 tsp Agar powder
1 tbsp maple syrup or 1 tsp honey - or to taste (optional)

* here I have used 1 tbsp of Viberi blackcurrant powder in one cup of water
** Jellies may ‘sweat’ when weather is humid. To prevent this, you may dissolve 1 tsp of corn starch (corn flour) with the agar into the liquid that you are cooking


Pour the liquids into a cooking pot and sprinkle with the Agar Powder & sweetener of your choice (if using). Using a whisk, mix to combine and let stand 10 minutes for the Agar to swell.

Place the pot on medium heat. Warm to dissolve the Agar & sweetener, while stirring. When the mixture reaches a boil, simmer for 2 minutes while stirring to make sure all is dissolved. Remove from heat and ladle immediately into a flat dish. The mixture will set at room temperature. Refrigerate for a faster & stronger set. Before serving, cut the gummies into bite-size shapes.
