Make these gummy bears to boost your immunity all season…
We’re firm believers in the old saying, let food be thy medicine and medicine thy food. That’s why we aim for a majority plant-based diet. But, we’re also firm believers in the 80/20 rule: Eat clean 80% of the time, then really enjoy yourself the other 20%.
To be able to create a recipe that will not only boost your immunity (following the first rule), but also allows us to enjoy ourselves (following the second), we knew this quick, simple recipe was a winner. We use Pressed Juicery’s Elderberry Shots, but any simple elderberry syrup will work if you don’t have a Pressed Juicery near you. With just three clean ingredients and taking only about ten minutes to prepare, you can make these gummy bear alternatives that are delicious and loaded with antioxidants!
