Everyone loves gummy snacks!

Whether it’s gummy bears, gummy worms, sour patch kids, or even Swedish fish, gummy snacks seem to be universally loved. But unlike the store-bought versions that are loaded up with sugar and strange and unnecessary additives, these keto gummies are sugar free and come with some added health benefits. From vitamin gummies to probiotic gummies, I’ve included modifications in this post for a wide variety of different low carb gummy recipes.

Health benefits of  gelatin

Not only are these keto gummy bears super quick and easy to make, but they also pack a great health punch beyond the benefits of individual fruit flavors. Grass-fed gelatin is amazing for healthy hair, skin, and nails. It helps improve joint health, reduce inflammation, and improve gut health and overall digestive strength.  You’ve got to love any snack that is delicious and enhances your wellness. Check out my Ningxia Red Gummy Bear post for even more health benefits of gelatin and for another delicious gummy recipe.

How to make keto gummy snacks

Whether you want to make gummy worms, gummy bears, or even gummy legos, it is incredibly easy and takes only a few minutes. While most of my recipes do not require any special equipment, to make these sugar free gummies, you will need a gummy mold. They come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, it’s all a matter of personal preference. I get mine here.

Making your own gummies is as simple as combining gelatin, the fruit juice of your choice, any added vitamins or supplements you might want to add, and the sweetener of your choice to a sauce pan and combining them over low heat until you have a smooth, but pourable mixture. From there, you just transfer it to gummy molds, chill, and enjoy! The basic proportions in the recipe below stay the same, while still making this recipe completely customizable for all tastes.

Fun ways to change up these Sour Lemon Gummy Snacks:

  • Make a tart cherry version by subbing all of the liquid in the recipe for tart cherry juice.
  • Make an orange vitamin gummy by subbing all of the liquid in the recipe for fresh orange juice.  Then, add pure orange extract, to taste, for a more intense orange flavor. To make it sour and to add some extra vitamin C, add pure absorbic acid, to taste.
  • Make pineapple gummies by subbing all of the liquid in the recipe for pineapple juice and adding pineapple extract, to taste for a more intense pineapple flavor.
  • For an antioxidant rich, berry flavored version, try my Ningxia Red gummies.
  • Make a mojito version by subbing the lemon juice in the recipe for lime juice and adding some pure spearmint extract, to taste.
  • Make a paleo version simply by using coconut sugar as the sweetener.
  • Make probiotic gummies simply by adding one capsule of your favorite probiotic per serving. Just be careful not to heat the mixture any more than you need to in order to mix it, or you will kill the probiotics.

 

How about an adult version of these Low Carb Gummy Snacks?

Gummies aren’t just for kids. A little bit of tequila takes these Low Carb Strawberry Margarita Gummy Worms to the next level. Of course, you could omit the alcohol so everyone can enjoy the strawberry margarita flavor. Even better: make 2 batches, one boozy, one non-alcoholic. Not a fan of tequila, sub in rum to make Strawberry Daiquiri Gummies. You could even make them with rum, lime juice, and some fresh mint (or mint extract) to make mojito gummy bears.

Sour Lemon Gummy Snacks

Want to see a video of these Sour Lemon Gummy Snacks being made? Be sure to check out my IGTV.  There are a lot of fun and delicious cooking demos there.

  • Author: Kyndra Holley
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes + 1 hours to set
  • Cook Time: 5 minutes
  • Total Time: 1 hour 15 minutes
  • Yield: 110 keto gummy bears

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons grass-fed gelatin (I use this brand)
  • 2 tablespoons powdered monkfruit (I use this brand)
  • 1⁄4 cup plus 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1⁄4 cup water

Special equipment:

Instructions

  1. Combine the gelatin, monkfruit, lemon juice, and water in a small saucepan over low heat. Heat, while whisking, to dissolve the gelatin and combine the ingredients. They will form a thick paste. Heat until the mixture is warm and pourable.
  2. Transfer the mixture to a measuring cup or bowl with a pour spout, then quickly pour it into the silicone gummy molds.
  3. Transfer the molds to the refrigerator to cool and solidify the gummy snacks, about 1 hour. Pop the gummy snacks out of the molds and enjoy!
  4. Store leftovers in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks. I like to store mine in the fridge because I enjoy eating them cold.
