Homemade Vitamin C Gummies

  • Author: Ursula Herrera
  • Prep Time: 20 minutes
  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: 45 1x


These Homemade Real Non-GMO Vitamin C Gummies are made from fruits that contain lots of naturally-occurring vitamin C.



  • 1 1/2 cups juiced oranges and clementines. (You can just use one fruit or both, a cup is usually 45 medium oranges)
  • 4 tablespoons plain gelatin
  • 24 tablespoons raw honey (use 4 if you like them extra sweet)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract *optional
  • 1 tablespoon Vitamin C powder *optional if you want extra vitamin c


  1. Pour juice into a small saucepan. Sprinkle the gelatin over the top and let sit for a couple of minutes. Let the gelatin “bloom” (it will get wrinkly looking on the surface ). When all the gelatin is absorbed, whisk to combine.
  2. Place the saucepan over medium heat on the stove. Let the liquid warm, but not boil. Let all the gelatin dissolve. It takes about 3-5 minutes to make the liquid really smooth and thin.
  3. Add the honey and if using, the vanilla extract and vitamin c powder. Mix well.
  4. Pour into your molds or loaf pan and refrigerate for about 2-3 hours.
  5. Remove from molds. If you used the loaf pan, cut your gelatin into small squares.
  6. Store in the refrigerator- they will last 2-3 weeks.


This recipes will make about 45 gummies using my molds.

If you are fighting a cold and need extra vitamin c, add Organic Vitamin C Powder. Each tablespoon has 500mg of vitamin C . Check the amount you need based on your age and weight. You can find a great guide for kid and adult dosages HERE.
