🎵 “Oh I’m a gummy bear, yes I’m a gummy bear, oh I’m a yummy, tummy, funny, lucky gummy bear.” -Gummibär Jingle 🎵
Greetings, jelly bellies. 👋
I’ve been making Keto gummies all morning, so I’ve had that stupid Gummibär song stuck in my head. If you have never heard it, then I envy you. It’s this insipid candy jingle for German gummy bears. It features an underpants-wearing green gummy bear who alternately shakes his bare bottom, drives a hooptee, grabs his crotch, and does the robot.
It’s just awful. 😤
But sugar-free gummy candy, let’s discuss it. 😄
These chewy treats are very popular with children and adults alike. Kids like them because they are fruity and delicious, and adults like them because they can trick their kids into eating zero-sugar candy. It’s a win-win situation.
👨👩👦 DIY time
Making sugar-free gummy candy is an entertaining rainy day activity as well. Just gather your ingredients and some rubber molds, and you’ve got an afternoon of family fun. It’s great for grandparents too, people who like nothing more than giving candy to children. At least this way, it’s sugar-free!
The wonderful thing about these Keto Gummies is that they can be naturally sweetened. That’s because they are just made from water, unflavored gelatin, and Mio Water Enhancer. I use Mio as a flavoring quite a bit because it is zero-sugar, zero-carb, and comes in tons of fruit flavors.
It's specifically made for Keto dieters.

🌈 Gummy flavors
- The standard Mio fruit flavors are Strawberry Watermelon, Fruit Punch, Lemonade, Berry Grape, Berry Pomegranate, Cranberry Raspberry, Blueberry Lemonade, Mango Peach and Cherry Blackberry.
- And the flavors with caffeine are Wicked Blue Citrus, Black Cherry, Tropical Fusion, Green Thunder, Strawberry Pineapple Smash, and Acai Berry Storm. (It should go without saying that you should avoid these flavors if you plan to feed the gummies to children.)
- But you can also buy Mio with added vitamins: Orange Tangerine, Orchard Apple, and Orange Vanilla. Those I do recommend for kids. It’s a sneaky way to slip some B vitamins into their diet.
- And last, but best for children, is the Mio flavors naturally sweetened with Stevia: Blackberry Raspberry and Tropical Cherry.
- Mix together cold water and Mio flavoring (any flavor) in a medium-sized saucepan. Add unflavored gelatin and stir to combine. It will be lumpy.
- Turn the heat to Medium and cook, stirring constantly with a rubber spatula, until fully dissolved, 1-2 minutes.
- Place your rubber candy molds on a baking sheet and make sure that there is room for it in the refrigerator. Use a pipette (the large eye droppers that come with most rubber candy molds) and fill the wells of the rubber molds to the top.
- If you want to make multi-colored gummy candy, just drop a small amount into each well or partially fill some sections of the worm molds. Then add repeat with different flavors.
- Chill the sugar-free gummy candies in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
- Un-mold the gummies by pushing on the back of the mold to pop them out.
💰 Gummy molds
You can find all sorts of fun candy molds at craft stores and on Amazon. You can make gummy bears, worms, basic shapes, monsters, animals, dinosaurs, warriors, stars, flowers, space ships, planets, hearts, and... Yoda? If you can dream it, you can make it into Keto Gummies.
⏲️ Quick tips
- Don’t dilly dally: The gummy liquid will begin to gel immediately after you cook it, so it’s a race against time to fill the molds.
- Wash the pipette as you go: The candy liquid will quickly gel inside the eyedropper, so you need to flush it with hot water between batches. That will also keep your colors from being contaminated if you make multiple flavors.
- Bubble trouble: You can get rid of bubbles by reversing the action of the pipette and suctioning them up.
- Top shelf molds: Use very hot water to clean the molds. This will dissolve the leftover bits of gelled candy. You can also place the molds on the top shelf of the dishwasher.
- Storage: These sugar-free gummy candies stay fresh for 2 weeks in the refrigerator or 1 week at room temperature. The ones stored in the fridge will be firmer, and the ones stored on the counter will be softer.
And that’s all she wrote. 😄
Soon you’ll have a batch of yummy, tummy, funny, lucky gummy bears with zero sugar and 8 calories per handful. It's the perfect fruity treat, beloved by kids and grown-ups alike. But enough chitty chat, time to get back to humming my favorite song...Print
