For immune boosting gummies with elderberry + echinacea: 

** If you want to make your gummies sour (think sour patch kids) – you can use lemon juice powder to coat the outside of the gummies. We love doing this!


  1. In a small saucepan, add all ingredients except the gelatin or agar agar and bring to a gentle simmer over medium heat (usually takes 3 to 5 minutes). Turn off the heat and add gelatin or agar agar while stirring continuously until completely dissolved. If you do not stir, the gelatin/agar agar will clump up together.
  2. Using a dropper (the molds usually bring one), drop the mixture into the molds. These are the molds I use from Amazon.
  3. Place in the fridge for 15 to 20 minutes or until gummies are set.
  4. Optional – if you want to make the gummies sour – use lemon juice powder to coat the outside of the gummies once they are set. Enjoy!
