Paleo Orange Blueberry Jam without Pectin (AIP)

It’s so easy to make this Paleo Orange Blueberry Jam without pectin that’s tart and delicious. It takes just a few ingredients and lasts for over 3 months in the fridge!

Orange Blueberry Jam without Pectin

Well, the weather is finally warming up little by little and I couldn’t be more excited for it to be fully in Spring mode when it comes to produce. I even saw strawberries at the farmers market over the weekend and I can’t wait for all the other various berries to come out and play. But while we are still in between seasons, I decided to whip up some yummy jam using my favorite fruit, blueberries, and a winter fruit that’s almost out of season, oranges.

Paleo Orange Blueberry Jam without Pectin Recipe

Blueberries weren’t out yet the last time I checked, so I used frozen blueberries to make this Paleo Orange Blueberry Jam and it turned out so tart and fabulous. And with this recipe, you don’t even need to use pectin, which usually contains GMO corn that I would rather avoid if possible.

So you ready to start jammin’? This clean guilt-free jam is sweetened just with fruits and honey, and because it doesn’t use pectin, you have to cook it down much longer than a regular jam. The result is so thick but spreadable, and the combination of flavors from the blueberries and oranges is so tart and delicious.

Ways to Enjoy Paleo Orange Blueberry Jam without Pectin

This Paleo Orange Blueberry Jam isn’t canned, so it’s better to make a small batch at a time and store it in the refrigerator or freezer. It makes about a cup of jam and lasts for over 3 months in the fridge, so you have plenty of time to eat it on your favorite crackers, toast, pancakes, waffles, ice cream, yogurt, or any kind of creamy dessert. I bet it’s even yummy with some cheese like brie if you can do dairy.

However you want to eat it, it’s a delicious sweet condiment to have around if you are looking for a fruity treat!

AIP & Paleo Blueberry Sour Gummies

These AIP & Paleo Blueberry Sour Gummies are made with grass-fed gelatin, making them a healthy, gut-healing treat. You won’t believe how easy they are to make!

Paleo Blueberry Sour Gummies

I’ve been making gummy treats at home ever since I learned about grass-fed gelatin and its amazing health benefits, especially when it comes  to gut healing and skin health. It brings me back to my childhood when I would beg my mom to get me gummy treats all the time. They are so chewy and yummy, and I love how there are endless variations when it comes to their flavors and shapes, especially when you make it at home.

These AIP & Paleo Blueberry Sour Gummies are my newest favorite flavor with a delicious combination of blueberries and lemon juice. It contains all real food ingredients with none of that crap that’s in conventional gummy candies like food colorings, starches, and processed sugars.

Paleo Blueberry Sour Gummies

If you don’t have a gummy mold, you can just make these in a small baking dish or a silicon ice tray. But I bought these adorable molds to make these healthy gummy bears and I’m seriously obsessed with how they turned out!

These Paleo Blueberry Sour Gummies are also great for a holiday treat because you can get themed molds to make different shapes. Halloween is just around the corner, so I made a few gummy worms in addition to the bears to get into the festive spirit. Aren’t they so cute? Hope you enjoy this super fun and nutritious recipe!

Coconut Mixed Berry Popsicles (Paleo, Vegan)

These sweet and creamy Coconut Mixed Berry Popsicles are paleo and vegan, and they are a delicious and healthy treat on a hot summer day!

Coconut Mixed Berry Popsicles

It’s almost 4th of July, and I’m relishing in the fact that it falls on a Tuesday. It feels like an extra-long weekend, although Monday is a work day for many people. From what I’ve been hearing, most people are working from home or taking Monday off, so It feels like an extra-indulgent mid-week break!

While I usually don’t post recipes on weekends, I wanted to get these super summery and scrumptious Coconut Mixed Berry Popsicles to you before you start the celebration with BBQs and fireworks. I just love the combination of berries and cream, and even better when it’s in popsicle form!

I love that these mixed berry popsicles are festive as well, with their red, white, and blue hues. I used strawberries and blueberries, but you can use any other types of berries as well, like raspberries or blackberries. Either way, you have to try them because this is such an easy recipe and it’s so dang yummy.

What fun plans do you have for 4th of July? I think we might head to the beach to watch the fireworks and try out some food trucks. Of course, I will enjoy this yummy cold treat as well since they’ll be calling my name from the freezer. While I’m not a sweets-lover, I can definitely enjoy 1 or 2 coconut mixed berry popsicles, when it’s over 80 degrees out!
