Kiwi Fruit Vegan Energy Chews

Kiwi Fruit Vegan Energy Chews

I used to spend a fortune on energy chomps and chews to take out cycling and running with me. But then I learnt how easy it was to make them at home. I also realised that I could make my homemade ones just like I wanted, with ingredients that suited me.

I generally use either gelatine or agar powder to make my chews. Today in my video I’m making vegan friendly kiwi fruit chews and so I use agar powder to create the chew consistency.

Just want the recipe? Here is how easy it is!

Just take the following ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup fruit juice or blended fruit ( I used kiwi fruit for this recipe)
  • 40g coconut sugar
  • 2 teaspoons of agar powder
Add them all together into a saucepan and heat them on med-high heat. Let the mixture boil for one minute and then take it off the heat. Make sure you keep stirring the mix while its boiling. Then pour the mixture into a silicon bake pan like I do or and ice cube tray works well too. Let them set in the fridge for an hour or so or until hard. Then cut into small pieces and take with you on your next run or ride.

Agar is made from seaweed and has been used for hundreds of years by the Japanese and Chinese. It’s a good source of calcium & iron but contains very few calories. Great to use in your homemade energy chews, especially if you don’t eat gelatine which is the other easy option to use.

I would love to know what flavor energy chews you would like to see me make in the comments below.
