Gut Healing, Vitamin C Gummy Sweets Recipe
A Mila’s Meals Recipe which first appeared in my Vida Life gut-healing article “4 Steps to a healthy gut for your child.”
When it comes to gummy flavours you are only limited by your imagination! You can use any freshly pressed fruit juice – besides pineapple juice that is. The digestive enzymes in pineapple juice prevent the gelatin from setting.
These gummies have a tart flavour due to the vitamin C powder. If your little one is a fan of sour sweets, add an additional tablespoon of the powder or omit if you want sweet only gummies.
These are a great protein-rich addition to school lunch boxes! (Just make sure to include an ice-pack in the lunchbox bag as these will melt in warm weather)
