Elderberry Syrup Gummies Vitamin Recipe for Cold and Flu Relief

Use delicious and nutritious elderberry syrup gummies recipe to help you and your children power through colds and the flu.


  • 1 cup Elderberry Syrup
  • 1/4 cup gelatin – grass-fed from cows or from fish (if vegetarian or pescatarian)
  • 2/3 cup hot water (not boiling)
  • Coconut oil or other kind of oil to grease the gummy molds
  • Silicone gummy mold or a 9×13-inch baking dish
  • Optional – instead of water, replace it with NingXia Red which adds a ton of antioxidants and nutrition. It also adds sweetness, which helps with the bold flavor of the elderberries that can be strong for some kids.


  • Grease molds or dish with oil to prevent sticking. Place the silicone molds on a baking pan, plate or other small, flat surface so that they are supported. Otherwise the syrup will spill as you transfer it.
  • Place ¼ cup of cooled elderberry syrup into a bowl and quickly whisk in the gelatin powder. A whisk does work much better for this than a fork.
  • Add the ½ cup of hot (but not boiling) water and stir quickly until smooth.
  • Add the rest of the elderberry syrup and stir or whisk until completely smooth.
  • Pour into molds and refrigerate for 1-2 hours or until completely firm. If you don’t have enough room in your fridge, they do also harden at room temperature, it just might take the full two hours.
  • Pop out of molds and store in airtight container with parchment paper between layers.


Yield – 60 gummies. Dosage – children take 1 tsp. a day, adults take 1 tbsp. a day. If you have the flu or a cold, triple the dosage per day. For most gummy molds, each gummy is about 1 tsp.
