Homemade Immune Strengthening Gummy Snacks
½ cup of black cherry juice, sweetener-free
½ cup of filtered water
¼ cup of black elderberry extract
120 drops of Echinacea Drops
96 drops of Vitamin D3 drops
3 tbsp of gelatine, grass-fed preferably
2 tbsp of organic honey, raw
Blend the Echinacea and vitamin D3 drops and then divide it through the mold you’re going to use. You can use a 60-count mold or 12 servings divided into the 60 cavities.
Next, warm up ½ of the cherry juice and all of the water at low medium heat.
Then remove it from the stove and add the honey and elderberry extract. Then add the gelatine and whisk until it’s lump-free.
Add the rest of the cherry juice and mix once more. The mixture will become thicker. Pour the gelatine mixture into the molds.
Keep the molds in the fridge for 5 hours. Remove them out from the molds-they will come out quite easy.
If they don’t, put them back into the freezer for several more minutes.
Children can take up to 4 gummies per day; if your child is younger than 1, consult your doctor first.
This is a recipe suitable for children older than 1.
