Homemade Gummy Bears with Chlorella

     
     

    Store-bought fruit snacks and gummy candies are staples of childhood but aren’t always the healthiest of options. That can change!

    By simply using a superfood like a chlorella in a homemade recipe, these tasty treats of youth are transformed into plant-powered powerhouses of nutrition and flavor.

    Jason Wrobel takes us through this easy recipe for homemade gummy bears that includes Sun Chlorella Absolute™, a fine chlorella powder that is rich in protein, iron, zinc, antioxidants, chlorophyll, and manganese. Think of it as a super yummy vitamin that mixes and dissolves easily into almost any recipe.

    Make these with your kiddos, and they’ll never ask for pre-packaged gummies again.
