Even though we didn’t do our usual ingredient rundown, we’ll be ringing in the New Year with oranges here on Live Eat Learn! Is that a thing? Oranges for New Year? Here in Georgia, where I’m visiting my grandpa for the holidays, we ate blackeyed peas and Brussels sprouts to bring luck for 2018, but I vote we add some citrus into that lucky mix.

With the holidays in the rear view mirror I’ve been thinking of how we can lighten up our kitchen in 2018. Last year around this time we cut out everything (okay, not everything, but a whole heck of a lot) with the 21 Day Reset. But this year I’m feeling a bit less ambitious. I’m thinking of going towards more homemade versions of things. You know, homemade vegetable/chicken stock, get back into making kombucha, and make our own little treats. Case in point, these Orange Creamsicle Gummies.

  1. Emily says:

    Can you substitute something for the coconut milk? Soy creamer?

    1. Sarah says:

      Hi Emily! I haven’t tried other substitutes but I think soy would work well! I used coconut for it’s creaminess, but soy milk or a combo of soy milk/creamer would probably also work. The agar agar should still set without a problem.

  2. Rachel says:

    Looks good! Will it work with an other kind of juce? …like grape or berry?

    1. Sarah says:

      Hi Rachel! It should work with other juices! 🙂

  3. Kathrine says:

    These look great! 🙂 I was wondering how do you store these and for how long?

    1. Sarah says:

      Thanks, Kathrine! You can store them for around 4 days in the fridge in an airtight container 😀

  4. Mac says:

    Can I substitute the agar agar for anything?

    1. Sarah says:

      Hi there! You could use gelatin 🙂
