These lemon, ginger and honey IMMUNE-BOOSTING Gummies are one of my most popular recipes EVER!

“My immune system has always been overly welcoming of germs. It’s far too polite, the biological equivalent of a southern hostess inviting y’all nice microbes to stay awhile and have some artichoke dip.”- A.J. Jacobs

This is a wee insight into how my brain works:

Lemon, Ginger and Honey Gummies

Yep. Truly. That’s genuinely how it works. Deep thinker, me!

And on this particular occasion, the gummies my brain came up with are really good. Like, really, REALLY, especially good. A little bit sweet and a little bit sour.

…and even a smidge like ginger beer

And, they are a doddle to make. Such a doddle in fact, that I even made them kiddo-licious, too. Just by popping some of the mixture into hollowed-out lemon halves…

Lemon Ginger and Honey Gummies

I feel like I say that a lot… That my recipes are a doddle to make.

They kind of are, though. Because I don’t really have the time or the inclination to pfaff around with fiddly stuff in the kitchen. I’d rather read a book. Or catch up with a girlfriend. Or something.

I want to have lots of two things in my food:

  • flavour
  • nutrient density

These babies have both

They also feel a teeny bit naughty. Like they are a special treat. Because that’s what gummies do. Especially if you’ve been down this AIP rabbit hole for a while.

Here’s the recipe:

Yummy! I love this flavor combination.

Me too, Eileen. I’m limiting myself to 2 per day… (sigh)

I made these today and they are great! Thanks.
Why do you limit yourself to 2 per day?

Mae West said, “Too much of a good thing can be wonderful”. Pretty sure she wasn’t referring to my gummy recipe, but…

For some of us with a dysregulated gut, overdoing the gelatin can sometimes cause digestive issues. But, really the only reason I limit myself to 2 a day is so they last longer!

I’m glad you’re enjoying them, Susan!

Any specific recommendations for the gelatin?

Sarah – I recommend Vital Proteins or Great Lakes. Neither are cheap, but they last a long time.

Where do you get your gelatin from? I can’t find any that are worthy. Thanks!

Maryellen – are you in Australia? You can order through iherb or Kitsa’s Kitchen. I use Vital Proteins, but Great Lakes is also good. I believe Sarah Wilson has also brought out her own label (but I have not tried it)

How long do these last for? Are they kept in the fridge?

Up to 5 days in the fridge, Heather ?

I love those flavors together. Could I make them in the blender like your other gummies? I find that method so much easier…

Sure could, Nina. Whatever works best for you! 🙂

can you freeze also?

Kristy – I’ve never tried to freeze gummies (to be honest, mine never last that long)

I’m guessing freezing gummies may alter the consistency. Only one way to find out!

Can u use powdered ginger spice instead of freshly grated?

Hi Karen – while you could give powdered a go, it definitely won’t have the same taste, nor possibly texture. If at all possible, fresh would be best in this recipe
