Naturally Flavored Homemade Gummy Vitamins

Tired of the battle that ensues when you tell your kids to take their vitamins? Or maybe you’re not a fan of swallowing supplements yourself. Either way, I have two magical words for you: gummy vitamins.

But if you want to forgo the high-fructose corn syrup, artificial flavors and petroleum-based dyes often found in conventional gummy vitamins, why not try your hand at a DIY version? When you make your own gummy vitamins, you’ll know exactly what’s in them!

DIY Gummy Vitamins

Ingredients:

Directions:

  1. In a small saucepan, mix together juice, rice syrup (or honey) and gelatin powder.
  2. Heat on low and whisk until gelatin dissolves.
  3. Remove from heat and let cool before whisking in liquid supplement.
  4. Carefully pour into fun-shaped silicone molds or silicone ice cube trays.
  5. Place in freezer for 10 – 15 minutes or until set.
  6. Remove from molds; store in an airtight glass container.

Your kids will never suspect that you’re sneaking a little nutrition into these homemade treats – just be sure to keep them out of reach of little hands!
