Kids Immune Gummies

Kids Immune Gummies are a sneaky way to add extra nutrition to your kids’ diets. They enjoy the taste and you know that it’s good for their bodies!

Your little ones can help with this recipe too, both my 5 year old and 4 year old have assisted me when I make these.

I’m working on a flavor that they all like, so I’ll continue to tweak it.  The current batch I have only my girls will eat.  = (

Supplies:

Silicone Molds (this recipe makes 30-50 gummies)

Stainless or Glass pitcher (for easy pouring)

Stainless or Enamel pot

3 Cups of fresh, chilled juice  (Ningxia Red, Orange Juice, Elderberry Tea, Tart Cherry, Cranberry)

1/2 Grass-fed Gelatin

1/4 cup Raw Honey

15 drops Orange Vitality Essential Oil

8-10 drops Thieves Vitality Essential Oil

Ingredients:

Grass Fed Gelatin:  I do not claim to be any sort of nutrition expert, I am just a mom who is learning as I go.  Gelatin is a derivative of skin, tendon, ligaments, bones, generally from cows or pigs.  We use bovine gelatin because we don’t consume pork.  Grass fed is important because it is generally an indicator to the health of the animal, it is able to eat it’s natural diet (versus being corn or grain fed) and is more likely to be healthier all the way through: down to the sink, tendon, ligaments and bones. Grass Fed gelatin delivers 12g of protein per tablespoon.  Depending on the size of your silicone molds you’ll get 1.6 (if you make 30) – 3.2 g (if you make 50) of protein per gummy!

Orange Vitality Essential Oil: this oil is for internal use and can be added to capsules, beverages, food and more.  It is high in the constituents limonene and provides a sweet, citrus boost to this recipe.

Thieves Vitality Essential Oil: combines Lemon, Clove, Eucalyptus Radiata, Cinnamon Bark, and Rosemary essential oils to create one of our most popular products. These ingredients synergistically combine to offer one of the key benefits of Thieves Vitality oil: overall wellness and support of a healthy immune system. Additionally, Thieves Vitality may also help support a healthy respiratory system when taken internally*.

Ningxia Red: ingredients include juices and extracts from superfruits such as aronia, plum, blueberry, and pomegranate, plus a whole-fruit puree of exotic wolfberries. This delicious supplement packs a big punch, offering NingXia Red benefits that include support for normal eye health, cellular function, and energy levels.  It’s so yummy, I have to ration it with my kids because they love it so much!

How to Make Immune Gummies for Kids

  1. Pour your chilled juice into a large glass or stainless measuring cup, or bowl.
  2. Add grass-fed gelatin and mix with a metal spoon until the gelatin dissolves fully.
  3. Pour your mixture into an enamel or stainless pot, warm over LOW-MEDIUM heat and add your raw honey (or stevia).
  4. Taste for sweetness, you want it to feel TOO sweet at this stage, once it cools the sweetness will mellow out.
  5. Pour back into your glass measuring cup and drop in your Vitality Essential Oils and stir.
  6. Pour into molds.
  7. Allow to gel slightly, then transfer to the refrigerator.
  8. Allow to cool a minimum of 30 minutes.
  9. Pop out and serve.
  10. Keep unused gummies in the refrigerator until you are ready to consume them.

Side Note:

I get nervous about things sticking in molds, so I used greased my molds with coconut oil.  I honestly don’t know if this is necessary as it is not mentioned in the original recipe my friend gave me.  However, mine do have a bit of “cool coconut oil flakes” on them.  Let me know how it goes if you skip the greasing step.
