  • Strain mixture through a sieve into a bowl, squeezing all juice from berries. Discard solids. Return liquid to the saucepan over low heat. Sprinkle gelatin on top and whisk until dissolved. Remove from heat and let cool until mixture is warm but no longer hot. Stir in honey or pureed strawberries until dissolved.

  • Immediately pour mixture into fun-shaped silicone molds a 9x13-inch baking pan lightly greased with coconut oil.

  • Refrigerate until hardened, about 30 minutes. Remove gummies from molds or cut into pieces. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator
