My Three Ingredient Low Carb Gummies will please kids and kids at heart. They are chewy, flavorful, and you can easily customize this recipe to your own preferences.
My kids gobble up gummies faster than I can make them. I've been thinking about how to cut back on the ingredients and cost and I found a great solution. True Lime and Lemon drink packets. This has the flavor and sweetener all in one. They do have one gram of sugar per packet but each packet makes more than a dozen gummies.
Low Carb Gummies for a Snack
Low carb gummies are a favorite snack in my house. They are basically free food. They are low carb, low fat, and low calorie. In Trim Healthy Mama foods that are low carb and low fat are called fuel pulls. Gummies are one of the best fuel pulls.
I also love these drink packets. My kids love them too. Our favorite is the True Lime Watermelon and True Lime Black Cherry Limeade packets. I frequently get them via subscribe and save from Amazon or from a local grocery store.
How to Avoid Foamy Gummies
As you can see in my photo using the blender method can leave a little foam on the gummies. My kids don't mind. If you do you can whisk by hand instead. Soften the gelatin by sprinkling it on cold water. Let it sit for 5 minutes. Then proceed with the recipe. You want to use 2 cups of water total. The exact ratio of cold vs hot does not really matter. Just use a few tablespoons of cold and hot for the rest of the 2 cups.
What Mold should I use for Low Carb Gummies?
We already sampled a few low carb gummies before I took a pic. This is one batch of this recipe. It makes a ton of gummies.
Three Ingredient Gummies
- Put the gelatin into a blender. Remove the center spout from the lid and grab a dish towel. Pour the hot water on top of the gelatin. Cover the open hole with a dish towel folded over a bunch of times. The hot water will spurt up. Blend for a minute or two on the lowest setting until the gelatin is dissolved. Add the drink packets and blend for another minute. Pour into silicone molds and refrigerate until firm.
- Put ¼ cup cold water in the bottom of a medium sized bowl. Sprinkle the gelatin on top. Let sit for 5 minutes. Pour 1 ¾ cup boiling water over the bloomed gelatin. Whisk until the gelatin dissolves. Add the drink packets and whisk until smooth. Pour into silicone molds and refrigerate until firm.
