Safe slime recipe

In this recipe, we use psyllium fiber. This is actually a dietary supplement to support bowel function. You can buy it for a few euros online or at the chemist (I bought it at Holland & Barrett ).


  • 250 ml of water
  • A few drops of food dye of your choice (optional)
  • 2 hefty tablespoons of psyllium fibers

This is my fist batch, without food colouring. Once cooled I was able to handle it and it was slimy. The day after it did feel more like play-doh.


  • Mixing & stirring ingredients
  • 3 to 5 minutes in the microwave
  • Stir, cool down, ready!

Some thoughts

The recipe I found online calls for 3-5 minutes, with our first try we did 5 minutes, it spilled over (as you can see in the video) but it was slimy and easy to clean up. The second time we put it in less long and it was not as slimy. I’m thinking that it really needs to get hot hot hot! So don’t worry if it runs over a bit, once cooled you can manage it.

The kids decided to add glitter last minute, was not my idea, but it did look way better than my brown slime šŸ™‚

It does not smell great, so even though you could technically eat it (without glitter)…they won’t want to. šŸ¤£ You’re welcome.

Who knew that fiber could give this kind of result.
