TM 5Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!
Place juice into TM bowl. Sprinkle gelatin on top, taking care to avoid the middle of the blades as much as possible (you don’t want a huge clump of gelatin in your mix).
Wait for the gelatin to seep into the juice. This can take a few minutes. Once absorbed, give the mixture a quick blitz to incorporate everything evenly for 5 sec/Sp 4. Scrape down sides.
Heat the liquid to melt the gelatin for 3 ½ mins/60ºC/Sp 2. In the last minute of heating add through the lid the rice malt syrup and vanilla extract.
Check mixture to make sure all the gelatin has melted. Dip your finger in the mixture and then rub it against your thumb, if the mixture is smooth it is ready to pour into, if it feels grainy, then it needs to be heated a little longer. I didn’t need to reheat my mixture.
A quick blitz to whizz everything up for 2 sec/Sp4.
A little trick I learnt many years ago was to place a small amount of oil on the inside of the moulds to help with releasing the items later. Silly me used coconut oil this first time around. It worked but it also solidified around the edges, which meant when I released the moulds, there was a little bit of residue. Not that this bothered me, but don’t have a brainfart like I did and use coconut oil if you want things looking FANCY.
Place mixture into moulds and set in the fridge for up to 2 hours.
Should keep in an airtight container in the fridge for about half a day until the kids find the stash, then you will have to make some more.
Here's how to make the magic happen.......

I had a fellow thermo user contact me about her joobies not setting. It turns out she was using Great Lakes Gelatine and it has properties in it to prevent it from setting. So please use the crappy supermarket brand gelatine for this recipe and not the expensive imported hippy stuff. You will find the recipe will work much better for you.
I made these as an option for a sugarless lolly. It is not a hard lolly by any standards, more a firm jelly, which is why they are called joobies - like jubes.
These are also not very sweet, but they are sweet enough for me and my palate and diet requirements, hence the sugarfree aspect of them.
If you want more sweetness subsitute the rice malt syrup for something sweeter like agave syrup or honey, which are both waaaaaaaaay too sweet for me.
Someone asked the question 'how do I change the colour of the joobies?' Well the colour is different because I used different flavoured V8 juices. My orange coloured ones were orange/mango/passionfruit flavour, and the purple ones were forest fruit flavoured. Any flavour apart from pineapple would work. Pineapple has some mystical properties that don't react well with gelatin, it won't set.

I made these today with pureed mango and coconut water Mixed with some rice malt syrup and vanilla bean residue that had been leftover in the bowl from milling some vanilla beans. I kept the content to the 375g, like with using juice but the amount it made was 6 less moulds because of the thickness of the mixture.
I really like the taste, it still needed a bit of sweetness. But yet again, for my palate and dietary requirements, I don't need a lot of sugar.
