{Note from Jessica: Today’s post is shared by my sweet friend Renee, author of Raising Generation Nourished. We became friends several years ago and I am continually impressed with her desire to help change the world, starting with our newest generation. Real food has to be core of our health and should start in the womb. Considering this is the first time in history that our children are expected to die before us, something HAS to change. I’m honored to call her a friend. I hope you’ll stop by her site, Raising Generation Nourished, and say hello!}

Summer! We finally made it!

Boy that school bell rang the final time and I had our flip flops in hand and we hit the beach down the road! We are ready!

It is really nice to have a few quick protein-packed snacks that will hold my busy bee girls over until lunch when we make it a park or beach day. Even a morning out weeding or tending the garden can leave them asking for something to eat well before lunchtime!

Melon Gummies // Delicious Obsessions.com // #paleo #primal #grainfreeI keep my freezer well stocked with granola, energy bars, and handfuls of crispy nuts, but sometimes it is fun to have something different. And gummies are super popular with my kids and their friends because they are so good!

I keep these antioxidant-rich berry gummies stashed away all year for handfuls here and there, but with summer comes lots of produce to choose from!

I can’t even begin to tell you how wonderful it is to see the variety of produce back on the shelves at our grocer and farmer’s markets opening back up! We love melon so this gummy flavor is a favorite of ours to enjoy at the beach on these beautiful summer days!

Important Note On Gelatin Types 

When it comes to gelatin, you don’t want any old gelatin off the supermarket shelves. You want to look for 100% grass-fed gelatin from healthy animals. Just like other animal products, quality is important.

That is why I recommend Vital Proteins Grass-Fed Gelatin products and Perfect Supplements products exclusively. I have compared these brand with other brands on the market and the quality far surpasses anything else I’ve tried. I am thrilled to be one of their affiliate partners and support such great products and companies.

Perfect Supplements offers a grass-fed hydrolyzed collagen (cold-soluble) right now and has a gelatin (hot-soluble) in the works for 2016. Read my review of their product here or watch the video below. You can order their own products via their own site here or on Amazon here.

Vital Proteins offers two types of gelatin. The green top (Collagen Protein) is what you need for this recipe and for recipes where you are making gummies, “jello”, etc. The blue top (Collagen Peptides) is cold water soluble and does not thicken or gel like gelatin does. Both are very nutritious, but can’t be used interchangeably. You can order their own products via their own site here or on Amazon here.

Melon Gummies :: Gluten-Free, Grain-Free, Dairy-Free, Refined Sugar-Free

Yield: Approx. 48 gummies
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Additional Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 45 minutes

Melon lovers unite! This special twist on a basic fruit gummy will leave your tastebuds singing. This flavor is a favorite of ours to enjoy at the beach on these beautiful summer days!



  1. Put the cantaloupe and water in a small sauce pan and bring to a simmer. Stir for a few minutes while everything warms.
  2. Turn off the heat and add the raw honey. Stir to combine/melt.
  3. Put the warmed melon mixture in a food processor or blender, add the gelatin, and blend completely.
  4. Pour into your silicone molds (this amount fills about 48 slots in my molds) and refrigerate. I like to stick them in the freezer to make this part go faster – only takes about 15 minutes or so! The firmer, almost frozen gummies pop out of the molds nicer/easier too!
  5. After the mixture gels up, you can pop out the gummies – I just push the silicone mold “inside-out” – works great!
  6. Store your gummies in the fridge. They keep fine in the lunchbox without an ice pack though!
