What Makes this Gummy Bear Recipe Healthy?

These homemade gummies prove that you can make a gummy bear recipe healthy. Most store-bought gummy bears include Corn Syrup, Sugar, Dextrose, Artificial Flavors, and Artificial Colors but when you make your own gummies, you can use better ingredients.

I tried experimenting with homemade gummies using fruit juice instead of powdered flavoring but it was really hard to keep the carb count down. If you aren’t counting carbs, feel free to use your favorite fruit juice but this sugar-free gummy candy recipe is perfect just the way it is, and I think you will agree.

Healthy Gummy Snacks Ingredients

To make healthy gummy snacks, you will need the following ingredients.

  • sugar-free flavored gelatin
  • unflavored gelatin
  • water

You will also need a mold and some cooking spray to make these healthy gummy snacks.

How to Make this Sugar-Free Gummy Recipe

In a medium pot, mix the water and the flavored gelatin. Cook on medium heat while stirring.

Once fully combined, add in the packet of unflavored gelatin. Stirring to prevent the mixture from clumping up.

Once fully combined, pour directly into molds. Store in refrigerator until fully gelled.

This usually takes about half an hour. Once the homemade gummies are done, remove them from the molds and store them in an airtight container.

Substitutions for Healthy Gummy Bears

Fruit Juice: You can use whichever fruit juices you prefer for your gummies. Choose from grape juice, cranberry, orange, pineapple, lime, or lemon juice. If you choose lime or lemon juice, be sure to add some kind of sweetener to prevent it from being too tart. You could also use raw elderberry syrup instead of juice.

Sweeteners: If your sweet tooth is craving some really sweet treats, you can add in a variety of alternative sweeteners. Some of my favorite ideas to naturally sweeten candy are maple syrup, date paste, honey, coconut sugar, and monkfruit extract.

When substituting natural sweeteners for sugar in candy recipes, you may need to adjust the ratios of other ingredients to achieve the desired consistency.

Gelatin: You can’t substitute gelatin in this recipe because it is an essential ingredient for making gummy candy!

Tips for Making the Best Healthy Gummy Snacks

Coat the Molds: Spraying the molds prevents sticking and ensures that your keo sugar-free gummies are removed from the silicone trays easily and hold their shape.

Try New Flavors: Experiment with different flavors of jello to make this keto gummy recipe with a new flavor or adjust the levels of sweetness to fit your taste.

Work Fast– Keep in mind that the gummy mixture begins to set almost immediately after combining the ingredients. To prevent the mixture from solidifying before you’ve had a chance to pour it into the molds, work quickly and efficiently. Have your molds prepared and ready to go before you start heating the mixture, and pour promptly once everything is mixed to avoid any mishaps.

Fill the Molds: When pouring your gummy mixture into molds, accuracy is crucial for achieving the perfect texture and consistency. Use a dropper or small spoon to carefully fill each mold, ensuring that you distribute the mixture evenly for uniform gummies.

Is Gelatin In Gummy Bears Good for You?

Gelatin is a protein derived from collagen and contains amino acids that may improve your hair, skin, nails, and joints. It is also known to aid in digestion and gut health, so making this sugar-free jello gummies recipe is a healthy choice for a low-carb lifestyle with many benefits.

Are Sugar-Free Gummy Bears Healthy?

These sugar-free gummies align better with a low-carb diet which makes them healthier than store-bought like Haribo gummies or Black Forst Gummy worms because they do not contain extra sugar. Plus, many brands of gummy bears or gummy worms are high in calories, unlike these healthy gummy snacks.

Healthy gummy snacks like this sugar free gummy recipe can be easy to make. These homemade gummies are the perfect zero-carb keto candy.


  • 1 packet of sugar free flavored gelatin (0.25 ounce)
  • 1 packet of unflavored gelatin (0.3 ounce)
  • 1/3 cup of Purified Water
  • Non Stick cooking spray


  1. In a medium pot, mix together the water and the flavored gelatin. Cook on medium heat while stirring.
  2. Once fully combined, add in the packet of unflavored gelatin, while stirring. Once fully combined, pour directly into molds.
  3. Store in refrigerator until fully gelled. This usually takes about half an hour.
  4. Once the homemade gummies are done, remove them from the molds and store them in an airtight container.


You can swap out the flavors and use a different variety of Jello to make this recipe without changing the measurements. Just replace one box of flavored jello with another of the same size.

Some of the best flavors of healthy homemade gummies in my opinion are orange, cherry, raspberry, strawberry, lemon, lime, and blue raspberry.

For storage, despite their gummy texture, it's best to keep these candies refrigerated in a sealed container, where they'll stay fresh for about a month.

If you prefer to freeze them, arrange the gummies in a shallow container or a ziplock bag, and store them in the freezer for up to six months.
