We love gummies! Whether in the form of worms, bears, smiles, sharks, fruit, or even insects, gummies are a snack that’s fun to eat and play with. But if you’ve ever read the ingredients on your, or your kids’, favorite gummies, you’ve probably noticed that most of those brightly colored snacks or “vitamins” have some form of corn syrup or sugar as a primary ingredient, served with a side of artificial colors, and sometimes sprinkled with sugar on top.
The good news is that it’s relatively easy to make your own gummies with ingredients you trust. You can even add vitamins and electrolytes to transform this juicy treat into a health-boosting super snack.
Here’s our favorite homemade gummy recipe, complete with a scoop of Re-Lyte Immunity. The number of gummies it will make depends on the size of your molds. Feel free to double, triple, or quadruple the batch to make more.
- 1/4 cup 100% juice
- 1/2 cup water
- 2 tablespoons gelatin (about two 10-gram packets; if you prefer plant-based, use 2 tablespoons agar agar powder)
- 1/2 to 1 scoop or stick pack of Re-Lyte Immunity (Pineapple Orange or Blackberry—mix and match flavors!) or other Re-Lyte Variety (optional)
- A squeeze of lemon (optional)
Combine the juice, water, and optional squeeze of lemon into a saucepan. Bring them to a simmer. Stirring constantly, add the gelatin or agar agar and Re-Lyte Immunity. Keep stirring briskly until smooth.
Refrigerate for 20-25 minutes. Pop them out and enjoy!
Storage: You can keep them in the mold for 1-2 hours, but after that you should store them in a sealed container in a cool, dry place.
