There’s so many delicious gummie recipes around and they are such a great way to trick our little ones in to consuming vitamins and gut lovin gelatin! But they’re not just for our children, they’re for big kids too!
I adapted this recipe from Bubba Yum Yum, just using a tiny bit more juice and stevia instead of honey due to our fructose issues. You can apply this recipe to any flavor of gummie. Just use 1 cup of your desired juice and follow the rest of the recipe.
I often make this with whatever citrus I have on hand, limes, lemons, oranges etc. Once all mixed, heated, stirred and cooled a little, I stir in Liposomal Vitamin C to add some easily absorbed vitamin C! I can only find this from i-herb and it’s not cheap, so use code: GAN2478 & code AU2018 to receive a small discount if you’re a first time iherb-er!
Other options to add to the gummies for high potency vitamin C are Camu Camu powder or Kakadu Plum powder.
I use a few drops of stevia as a sweetener (also from iherb – Use discount codes above) but you can use an organic or manuka honey to taste if you prefer.
Vitamin C Gummies
Place gelatin and filtered water in a bowl and stir til well combined. Leave to bloom.
Juice your choice of citrus fruit. You should aim for about 1 cup of juice.
Place bloomed gelatin in a heavy bottomed saucepan, add low to medium heat and stir constantly until gelatin is dissolved.
Pour in citrus juice and either Camu Camu or Kakadu Plum powder if using, and stir well until just before boiling point.
Take off heat and stir in honey or stevia to taste.
If you are using Liposomal Vitamin C, wait until mix has cooled but not set to whisk it in.
Pour into moulds or glass dish to set. Should be ready within 30 mins. Remove from mould or slice into squares if using glass dish and store in airtight container.
Note: You can freeze these and thaw out before eating. I often freeze half of my batch and add a frozen one to Meika's lunch box and it's ready by the time she eats it.
