Healthy Vegetarian Calming Gummy Bears



2 tablespoons of agar powder (available at natural products stores)
1 cup of cherry juice
2 teaspoons of honey (optional)
1 heaping tablespoon of Organic Cherry Natural Calm


  1. Pour the juice into a bowl and sprinkle the agar powder across the top of the juice. Let it sit without stirring it for about 5 minutes.
  2. Stir the juice—the liquid should have thickened slightly.
  3. Pour all of the juice mixture into a saucepan and turn on high heat.
  4. Add the Natural Calm powder and optional honey. Stir together.
  5. Allow the mixture to come to a boil. Stir for 1 minute, then remove from heat. The mixture should have a consistency of syrup.
  6. Continue to stir the mixture until it cools off a bit (about 2 minutes), and then pour it into the molds. Note: Do not let it cool for too long without stirring it, as it will get thick and lumpy.
  7. Place the molds into the refrigerator for about 2 hours or until all the gummies are solid.
  8. Pop the gummy bears out and enjoy!
