A couple of weeks ago, I shared some pics on Instagram from a really fun event I attended with the girls. I’ve gotten a ton of questions about it, so for those who were wondering, it was an official launch party for the all-new Juicy Juice Teasers. These are a lower-sugar blend of fruit juice and decaf and caffeine free teas that just launched in Atlanta and other parts of the Southeast.
I don’t know about you, but Juicy Juice is pretty much a staple in my house. My kids don’t drink soda, so it’s basically water, milk, or juice for them (no juice after 3pm though). My husband is also a big juice guy, so between the 3 of them, let’s just say we run through a lot of juice.
As for the event…what can I say, it was awesome! The team at Juicy Juice really pulled of a super fun family event with delicious food, yummy snacks, great music, and of course, all of the Juicy Juice your heart desired. Even a little mommy juice for the grown ups 🙂 A must try is the half and half – by far, my favorite! My kids even discovered a new YouTube sensation who performed at the event named Ryleigh Ledford. She was such a sweetheart and an amazing talent. I hope someday they can look back to the picture of her they now have on their walls once she’s a huge superstar.
One of my biggest takeaways was the activities and recipes card that was shared at the event, where I discovered a super simple recipe for DIY gummies made with Juicy Juice! My kids love these snacks and how great is it to be able to make them myself using better-for-you ingredients?! Here’s the recipe for anyone who’d like to try it.
Homemade Gummies Recipe made with new Juicy Juice Teasers
- 1½ cups of Juicy Juice® 100% juice or Juicy Juice Teasers – We went with the Peach flavor which was my kids' favorite.
- 4 tablespoons of plain gelatin. I recommend a flavored gelatin if you're making this with the Juicy Juice Teasers for a sweeter taste.
Pour the Juicy Juice® 100% juice into a small pot. Gently add in the gelatin powder and allow it to absorb for a few minutes.
Once the gelatin has absorbed, whisk the mixture gently.
Turn on your stove to medium heat, getting the mixture warm but never boiling. Wait until the mixture changes from thick to runny and all of the gelatin has dissolved.
Once ready, pour the mixture into a shallow loaf pan and refrigerate for four hours.
Remove from pan and cut the gelatin into bite-sized pieces.
Keep in the refrigerator for up to two weeks!
