The Magic of Elderberry Syrup:

Before we jump into the kitchen, let's take a quick look at why elderberry syrup is stealing the spotlight in the wellness world. Packed with antioxidants and vitamins, elderberry syrup has been a traditional remedy for centuries. It's renowned for its potential to boost the immune system, alleviate cold and flu symptoms, and even help with inflammation. Plus, it adds a delightful sweetness to our gummies!

Benefits of Beef Collagen:

Collagen is a key player in promoting healthy skin, hair, nails, and joints. So, not only are you giving your immune system a boost with elderberry, but you're also supporting your body's overall well-being.


- 1 cup elderberry syrup (store-bought or homemade - We like to get ours here)

- 1/4 cup beef collagen powder (We like this one)

- 1/3 cup water

- 3 tablespoons gelatin powder (We like this one)

- 1 tablespoon honey or pure maple syrup (optional, for extra sweetness)

- Gummy molds (Kids love these)


1. Mix the Magic Potion:

In a bowl, combine the elderberry syrup and beef collagen powder. Give it a good stir to create a magical elixir that combines the immune-boosting power of elderberries with the collagen goodness.

2. Bloom the Gelatin:

In a separate bowl, bloom the gelatin powder (let sit till the water is absorbed) in 1/4 cup filtered water. Let it sit for a few minutes until it thickens. This step ensures that our gummies have that perfect chewy texture.

3. Combine and Stir:

Gradually add the gelatin mixture to the elderberry and collagen mixture, stirring continuously. If you're looking for a touch of sweetness, feel free to incorporate the desired amount of honey at this stage.

4. Heat Things Up:

Pour the combined mixture into a saucepan and heat it on low, stirring consistently. We want to make sure everything is well-mingled and smooth. Just be cautious not to overheat – we're aiming for warmth, not boiling!

5. Mold the Magic:

Once everything is well-mixed, carefully pour the liquid into your gummy molds. This is where the fun begins! Choose molds in playful shapes to make your elderberry gummies extra enticing. (Our favorites here)

6. Chill and Set:

Pop those molds into the refrigerator and let the magic happen. Allow the gummies to set for at least two hours, or until they're firm and ready to pop out.

7. Enjoy the Fruity Goodness:

Once set, remove the gummies from the molds, store them in an airtight container in the fridge for freshness. We like to put them in a fun container that makes them even more appealing to everyone!

Now, isn't that a simple, tasty way to take care of your health? Say goodbye to boring supplements and hello to the joy of homemade elderberry gummies! Happy munching, and here's to a healthier, happier you!
