(Sour!) Paleo & Keto Gummies

Just 3 Ingredients!

It’s sometimes hard to believe that you can make candies at home that are actually good for you! Cue in these keto gummy bears, which are packed
with collagen
, antioxidants (courtesy of the berry powders!) and a healthy dose of vitamin C.

And yes, these are actually chewy and not just flavored jello! But they are less chewy than your store-bought gummies. Still, a great compromise for super clean ingredients

Do note that the¬†sour gummy version is¬†absolutely everything¬†(and more!).¬†Not gonna lie, they took me right back to college and late nights at the library (I studied Econ & Finance ūüėā!!). There‚Äôs just something about that¬†sour punch¬†and¬†salivary-glands-in-action¬†that just does it for me right?

The Method

There’s not much to these keto gummies, in fact they’re shockingly easy! All you need to do is mix the ingredients, sweeten to taste, heat up until everything has dissolved and pour into silicon molds.

I (clearly!) used gummy bear molds, but you can use whatever you have around (bigger ones will be less of a hassle!).

INGREDIENTS

FOR THE KETO GUMMIES

  • 1/2¬†cup¬†water
  • 2¬†tablespoons¬†raspberry powder
  • 2-4¬†tablespoons¬†allulose¬†or xylitol, to taste*
  • 1/2¬†teaspoon¬†vitamin C powder¬†or about 1 TBSP lemon juice, to taste
  • 2 1/2¬†tablespoons¬†gelatin¬†***

FOR THE SOUR GUMMY COATING

  • 2¬†teaspoons¬†allulose
  • 1/2¬†teaspoon¬†raspberry powder¬†optional (but highly suggested!)
  • 1/8-1/4¬†teaspoon¬†vitamin C powder¬†to taste

SPECIAL EQUIPMENT

  • gummy bear silicon molds

    INSTRUCTIONS

    FOR THE KETO GUMMIES

    1. Add the water, raspberry powder (or flavor of choice), sweetener (starting with the lower amount) and vitamin C to a saucepan. Stir to combine and feel free to adjust the sweetness (or anything) to taste.

    2. Add the gelatin, stir to combine and turn on the heat to low. Continue stirring to ensure everything is well dissolved and evenly distributed, about 3 minutes (do not let it simmer though!). Remove from heat once the mixture is smooth and you begin to see some steam.

    3. Pour into a bowl right away and, using the gum drop, begin to fill up the silicon molds.

    4. Allow the molds to come to room temperature, about 15 minutes, and place in the fridge for 30 minutes or until set. Keep stored in an airtight container in the fridge for about 2 weeks.

    FOR THE SOUR GUMMY COATING

    1. Mix all the ingredients together in a small glass or bowl, adjusting sourness with the vitamin C to taste (I do 1/8 tsp, but you could definitely go to 1/4 tsp!). Mix in a serving of gummies, toss until evenly coated and enjoy right away.

    2. Keep in mind that the sour version doesn’t store well (the sour coating dissolves) and are best enjoyed right away!

      RECIPE NOTES

      • For¬†the fruit juice, I bought powdered dried fruit (unsweetened, all natural) in two flavors:¬†raspberry¬†(my favorite!) and¬†black raspberry. So while the black raspberry was good (and from what I’ve been reading, has the greatest amount of antioxidants out of all the berries by more than double!),¬†raspberry was the home run! And you¬†can also use the powders to¬†flavor¬†chia puddings, make yogurt a bit more fun, turn your¬†cheesecake-for-1¬†fruity, similarly for¬†the buttercream fat bombs, or¬†vanilla ice cream¬†(turned raspberry!), added to¬†milkshakes¬†… i.e. endless possibilities guys!
      • But if you¬†don’t want to buy powdered berries,¬†you could also¬†use a tea infusion¬†(something like¬†this raspberry tea¬†would work, for instance). Or you can¬†make your own fruit juice¬†with fresh fruit too (duh right?!).
      • For¬†the vitamin C powder¬†(i.e. citric or l-ascorbic acid) I used¬†this organic one. While its totally optional and you can use lemon juice instead, I also highly suggest it! Also¬†indispensable for the sour gummy version¬†(see below!).¬†And¬†for the home run: I also mix the pure vitamin C powder with my face and body lotions at night for¬†extra glowy skin!

      And please note that nutrition facts were estimated using the raspberry powder (25 gummy bears are 1.5g net carbs!)
