Cold and flu busting gummy bears- simple homemade recipe that kids love

Flu Busting Gummy Bears Recipe




Yield 60 gummies

Homemade gummy bears with a base of elderberry syrup help boost the immune system and are fun for kids (or adults) to take!



  1. Grease molds or glass pan with coconut oil to prevent sticking.
  2. Place ¼ cup of cooled elderberry syrup in a 2 cup measuring cup and quickly whisk in the gelatin powder.
  3. Add the ½ cup of hot (not boiling) water and stir quickly until smooth.
  4. Add the rest of the elderberry syrup and stir or whisk until completely smooth.
  5. Pour into molds and refirgerate for 2 hours or until completely firm.
  6. Pop out of molds and store in airtight container with parchment paper between layers.


Take daily as needed to avoid flu or take every few hours to help beat the flu faster.

Will last up to a week in the fridge in an airtight container (could last longer, but I haven't tried it since they never last that long at my house!).
