Homemade Vitamin C Gummies
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Recipe type: Dessert
  • 1/2 cup really hot but not boiling water
  • 1 cup cold, fresh squeezed orange juice
  • 1/4 cup raw honey, optional, but do not add sugar in its place
  • 1/4 cup high quality animal gelatin (like this one or this one)
Tools Needed
  • silicone molds (Amazon has a ton of small silicone mold options)
  1. Have your molds clean, dry and on a flat plate or tray that easily fits into the refrigerator. If using a glass dish instead of molds, carefully coat the bottom and sides with a thin layer of coconut oil.
  2. Mix the fresh juice and honey together. Stir well to totally dissolve the honey.
  3. Using a medium sized liquid measuring cup, quickly combine 1/2 cup of the cold fresh juice and honey with the gelatin. Then very quickly mix in the hot water. Add in the rest of the cold juice, completely mix and then pour into the molds.
  4. Chill for at least 20 minutes before trying to remove from the molds.
Special note from Respectably Recipe Contributor: This type of super healthy gelatin is very different from what is found in the fruit snacks at the store. Some people and children might experience an increase in bowel movements when first starting to consume the gelatin. We consume these daily, our 3 year old son easily has about between 5 – 10, but he’s also had up to about 20 for multiple days in a row and not experienced any shift. Start a little slow with your kiddos and increase from there just to make sure though.

You will want to move through these steps really quickly to ensure you’re able to pour all of mixture into the molds before it starts to set. If it does, simply reheat the entire mixture until hot, but not boiling, then pour the rest. This also applies if you make the gummies but they come out with a mealy texture and don’t just pop out of the molds.
