Healthy Living/ Antioxidant Lego Gummies

We are on a mission like never before to have good health through nutrition and use of preventive medicine through natural and holistic approaches. 

One area we are highly concentrating on is building up the immune system so when back to school time rolls around, we may have fewer colds and shorter downtime, for all of us!
While our focus is on the children's health and well being, and we made these antioxidant Lego gummies to appeal to them, an adult will benefit from these as well.
And why not make these gummies yourself instead of buying them from the store filled with who knows what. 

Lets take control and be proactive!

 Make up a healthy cost effective batch of antioxidant gummies for the family.



                                                   Antioxidant Gummies Recipe

Ingredients:
1 cup fresh or frozen organic raspberries 
1 cup fresh or frozen organic cherries, pitted
1 cup fresh or frozen organic black berries
1/3 cup of filter water {may need more}
3-4 tablespoons local raw organic honey or organic maple syrup
4 tablespoons gelatin {we use this}. Find out more about the amazing health benefits of gelatin by visiting here.
2 tablespoons antioxidant superfriut blend. {we use this}
2 tablespoons Elderberry syrup {we use this}
Molds or rectangle baking dish



Directions:
In Vit-A-Mix or food processor/blender, place berries/fruit, water and blend until almost smooth. Add honey and antioxidant powder and blend until smooth.Add more water here if needed. Using a sauce pot, place the berry mixture and warm on low heat. While still on low heat add gelatin and stir until completely dissolved and blended well, about 2 minutes. Turn heat off and add the Elderberry syrup and mix in well.

Pour mixture into a vessel with a pour spout if filling molds and fill all your molds. Place in refrigerator to set up.

Remove from molds, or using cookie cutters or a knife, and store in glass containers, like mason jars and keep in refrigerator. Eat daily and often! Will keep up to two weeks in a glass, covered jar in the refrigerator. Check at that point for freshness and discard if necessary.


We did not strain the mixture as we want to use the entire fruit and if a few seeds are left behind all the better.You may strain yours if desired prior to adding honey and antioxidant powder.


 We used raspberries, black berries and cherries for their health benefits and their taste. You can use whatever you like.

The antioxidant powder blend is a blend of some of the most antioxidant rich fruits on earth: Goji Berries, Acai Berries, and Pomegranate.Rich in vitamins and minerals including beta-carotene, B Vitamins, Vitamins C and E, along with amino acids, potassium, germanium and iron.

Elderberries help your body fight disease.Elderberries are a rich source of vitamins A and C, which are crucial in helping the body maintain optimal health. Plus, the bioflavonoids in elderberry syrup boost the body's immune system by increasing antioxidant levels and viruses that damage cell walls. A daily dose can assist you in preventing both acute and chronic disease.

NOTE: We can not and do not make any medical claims. This is informational only.

Okay germs, we are armed and ready to fight you off....and WIN!!! So are you ready to join in?!

    1. Great question! I would say 2 Lego molds would do the trick.

  9. have there been any tests on it to see if it retains the vitamin C content? I'd be curious if it does retain its antioxidant effects when it is heated.
