Agar-Agar Gummies For Valentine’s Day

Comments : 4 Posted in : 2 ingredients, Dairy-free, Gluten-free, Paleo, Recipes, Vegan on by : Ellie Tags: , ,


Here’s a delicious and quick recipe for cherry gummy hearts made with agar-agar. They are very easy to make, and the recipe can be adjusted to any plant-based or paleo diet depending on the juice and the sweetener you decide to use.

I, personally, used the juice from a jar of homemade cherry kompot (canned cherries) and since it was already sweetened, I didn’t have to add any additional sweetener. However, you can use any type of fruit juice you like.

I used a silicone heart mold, and I think that these small gummy hearts look like precious gemstones. They are definitely healthier than the store-bought gummies, but they are just as delicious.

In this recipe, I’m going to share how I make these gummies, but for best results, follow the instructions on the package of your agar-agar.

They can be used as decoration, too. These vegan mini heart-shaped cheesecakes are similar to my coconut mango tart, but I used cherries instead of mango, and I didn’t add cocoa powder to the crust.

Yield: 12

Agar-Agar Gummies For Valentine’s Day


1 cup cherry juice

1 teaspoon agar-agar powder

Sweetener of your choice – optional


For best results, follow the instructions on the package of your agar-agar.

First, put the juice on low heat and when it starts to boil, add the sweetener and stir.

Add the agar-agar powder and keep stirring for a couple of minutes until everything has dissolved and it starts thickening a little bit.

Then, take it out of the stove and strain the liquid.

Now you have to work quickly. Pour the liquid into the molds and after 10-15 minutes they will be hard and ready to take out.

Remove them from the mold and enjoy!
