When I say Jello, most everyone has a memory triggered of the gelatinous, jiggly mass! When I say gummies, you might think of gummy bears!
These good for you treats are a cross between the two but NO SUGAR!! I am KETO/Low Carb for life. I have NEVER felt this good before so why stop?
You have probably seen my posts about the gazillion blackberries I have been picking lately! I have made 30+ jars of keto jam so far, but wanted something different, so fresh fruit gummies it is!
I cooked my fresh berries for 15 minutes on low untill the juice had been seeped out. Then I put a sieve over a bowl and deseeded them by pushing the berries down with a wide spoon.
The results will yield a juicy pulp that you will use to make the gummies!
You will need 1 1/4 cups of berry pulp/juice.
1/2 cup cold water to “bloom” the gelatin.
I use Great Lakes Gelatin(orange can) because it is from grass fed cows. The green can, collagen hydrosylate WILL NOT WORK because it will not gel up.
You CAN use gelatin from the store, but I don’t recommend it.
You will need 1/4 cup gelatin. Measure it out and then whisk into your cold water.
At first it will be easy to whisk, then…..
It becomes a stiffened blob looking thing! No problem, its supposed to look like that!
Put your berry juice/pulp in a medium saucepan and add in 1/4 cup of your favorite granulated sweetener. I chose to use my erithrytol/stevia blend that I make up before hand.
I keep it in a jar and use like sugar in recipes. It is 1 cup of erithrytol to 2 tsp stevia. I have it made up already and just scoop what I need!
Start to warm up the sweetened berries. Once it is warmed up add in the gelatin blob. Mine came out in a big plop!
Start working it into the berries and you will see it start to melt away and combine.
Once it is all dissolved and smooth, about 5 minutes of stirring, I then put it into a container with a pour spout to pour into my molds.
You can get some of these fancy silicone molds at your local hobby store like Micheals, or online. The heart one is from Ikea and the square one is from ebay.
If you dont have any molds, you can simply pour the finished solution into an 8×8 glass pan and cut into squares!
You will leave them in the fridge for 2 to 3 hours. This ensures it is completely set before unmolding or cutting.
These gummies are gut healing in that the gealtin helps repair holes in your gut. It also supports hair, nails and skin!
These are all admirable benefits, but don’t over do it!! If you consume too much gelatin at once it may cause bloating, nausea, and digestive upset.
Start off with one square or shape and work your way up to more. It is loaded with protien so consider this if you are watching your macros.
They keep up to 2 weeks sealed in the fridge!
