So why make your own homemade vitamin gummy bears? I will tell you why! Store-bought vitamins are loaded with sugar! They may have corn syrup, fructose, and more. I don’t know about you but my boys don’t need any more energy, and that is what their little bodies will turn that sugar into.

The store-bought vitamins also have other undesirable ingredients. Some of them are loaded with GMOs, dyes, preservatives, and “natural flavors” which usually turns out to be MSG.

Companies, unfortunately, can label some ingredients in a sly way. They say it is so that competition won’t get their exact recipes but most of the time it is their way to hide some disgusting ingredients.

More Pros On Making Homemade Vitamin Gummy Bears

By making your own vitamin gummies, you will know exactly what is in them! No guessing about it. They don’t take much time and are fairly cheap to make. Save money by making your own vitamins. Your kids are sure to love them.

The best part is that you can use the powdered vitamin mix that you love. This can be customized for your kids. Do you kids need extra vitamin c? Or perhaps you’re like me, and have that kid that hates veggies!

That’s where the Amazing Grass Greens come in! I love that company. I’ve worked with them when I had a job outside the home. They source their ingredients and fully believe in their product. A huge plus, it’s packed full of greens but it taste like a delicious treat!

Speaking of taste, another great reason to make your own gummies is so you can cater to you and your kids taste buds!

Total Time: 4 hours 7 minutes

Make your own customizable gummy bears with vitamins! Moms approve and kids will love them!

Ingredients

  • non-stick spray oil – I like coconut oil.
  • 1 1/2 cups fruit or vegetable juice. (Fresh or bottled. Not concentrate.)
  • 4 tbsp beef gelatin
  • 2 tbsp honey (more or less depending on how sweet the juice is that you use.)
  • 1 tablespoon vitamins (see notes)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • Pour juice in a saucepan.

Instructions

  1. Add the gelatin into a medium saucepan, and stir well for 2 minutes.
  2. Cook over medium heat. Don’t let it get to a boiling point. The gelatin will be very thin. This just means that it is very well dissolved.
  3. Remove from heat.
  4. Add all the other ingredients, and mix them in well.
  5. Place the mold on a sheet pan to provide stability.
  6. Now get a dropper and pour the mixture into your mold.
  7. Chill until firm. Usually 2-4 hours.
  8. Take them out of the molds, and store in the refrigerator in an airtight container.

Notes

 For vitamins, you can add a little bit of vitamin C powder or water kefir soda or greens powder (my favorite), or kid's natural calm or any other healthy boost you can find! I've linked several vitamin choices to this recipe to make it a little easier on you.
