Cherry and Liver Gummies

Cherry and liver? Say what.. don’t be too turned off, with this combo, the liver is negligible in taste – but the benefits are still there! And in a the form of a delicious snack your little ones (and you) will keep reaching for.

For this recipe we have used desiccated liver – which is dried liver turned into a powder. This process involves removing the water content from the liver while preserving its nutritional components.

Liver is a nutrient-dense organ meat that is high in iron, zinc, vitamin A and B vitamins. It is a source of haem iron, which is the type of iron found in animal tissues and is more easily absorbed by the body compared to non-haem iron found in plant foods.

Cherry and Liver Gummies

Course 1 meal a day, 2 meals a day, 3 meals a day, BLW, gummies, Snack


  • 2.5 TBSP gelatin
  • 1/2 cup water for blooming the gelatin
  • 3/4 cup cherry juice
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 3 capsules desiccated liver or 1-2 tsp liver powder
  • 1 tsp honey omit under 12 months


  • Bloom the gelatin by adding it to 1/2 cup water. Stir well and set aside to bloom (thicken)
  • Add the cherry juice, water, honey* and opened liver capsules to a small saucepan over a low heat
  • Spoon the thickened gelatin into the saucepan and mix until dissolved
  • Pour the mixture into gummy moulds or wide dish and place in the fridge to set for 3 hours


Sometimes it can be tricky to find 100% cherry juice. I add honey to make it sweeter however you can omit this or if you are unable to find 100% cherry juice you will often find a blend with juices like pear or apple. You can use this as a replacement in this recipe however you will find it may then be sweet enough without the honey.
Kiwi, papaya and pineapple will NOT set for gummies so do not use juice containing these foods.
