Making homemade Vitamin C gummies is quick and easy. All you need is a few ingredients that you probably already have in your kitchen and about 6-7 minutes!

Vitamin C is a great way to boost the immune system. When dubs is sick I encourage him to eat as many gummies as he can all day long. For preventative maintenance, I give him about 4 gummy bears a day (but he usually talks me into more). Generally, the first side effect of consuming too much Vitamin C is having loose stools. If you or your child experience loose bowel movements after consuming simply cut back on your gummies. Don’t stress out, It’s really hard to consume too much Vitamin C from these- you’d probably have to eat an entire batch and then some. Remember, my website is for educational and entertainment purposes only- I am not a doctor and I am not providing medical advice.

If you’d like to learn more about using Vitamin C to improve your health I recommend browsing the Revitalize Wellness website.

When I make gummies, I prefer to use a diluted juice mixture because I find the Vitamin C powder to be really sour when it’s combined with 100% orange juice. I recommend starting with a 50/50 mixture and increase it to your liking with subsequent batches. Are you vegan? Here’s the link to my 7-Minute Vegan Vitamin C Gummies.

Yields1 Serving
Prep Time2 minsCook Time5 minsTotal Time7 mins

 1 cup liquid of your choice- fruit juice (orange, mango, apple, etc.) I like to use 1/3c apple, 1/3c orange, 1/3c water.
 4 tbsp Powdered Gelatin (I used NOW Foods brand)
 12 tbsp Sweetner (Raw honey, birch xylitol)
 1 tbsp Vitamin C Crystals (I used NOW Foods Ascorbic Acid)

1

Place your gummy bear molds on a cutting board or other flat surface that you can easily transfer into the refrigerator when it's time to set the gummies.

2

Add 1 cup of your liquid (juice, or diluted juice mixture) to a small saucepan.

3

Sprinkle all of the gelatin over the liquid to "bloom" the gelatin. The gelatin should have folds and wrinkles when it has bloomed.

4

Once bloomed, whisk the gelatin into the liquid and place pot over medium heat.

5

Keep pot over medium heat and add Vitamin C crystals. Whisk until gelatin and Vitamin C crystals have dissolved. Do not allow liquid to boil.

6

Once all powders are dissolved, remove from heat and use a dropper to fill gelatin molds or simply pour entire mix into a glass baking dish.

7

Allow to cool slightly at room temperature and then place in the refrigerator for a few hours to firm.

8

Enjoy! Store in the refrigerator for up to 14 days.
