Blackberry & Coconut Sweetener-Free Keto JelliesPin recipeFollow us 56.4k

I recently returned from the Keto Ladies Low Carb Universe conference, a great event for women following the ketogenic diet, and I was surprised to see just how many ladies, like me, enjoy sweetener-free keto treats.

I thought maybe you might like to see some sweetener free recipes too. Kickstarting with these Coconut and Blackberry Jellies - or gummies, whatever you prefer to call them. They are not the same as gummy bears but will do the trick for sweet cravings - without all the sugar found in processed foods!

Not only are they healthy, they’re positively good for you too. Made with grass fed beef gelatin which is healing for the gut lining. Just like fermented foods, it’s great for the digestive system and helps the good bacteria. Medicine never tasted so good!

Just make sure you don’t confuse gelatin with collagen hydrolysate which is the type of gelatin that will not set. Although both of them are equally beneficial for gut health and will boost your immune system, only gelatin will work in this recipe.

Best of all, there are no sweeteners! If you are like me and don’t want to use even stevia or erythritol, this is the ideal keto recipe for you. These gummies can be enjoyed even if you keep your carb intake is below 20 grams of carbs. And let’s face it, we all need a little treat, even on a keto diet!

I used just coconut milk and blackberries in these but you can add vanilla to the coconut too, this makes them extra tasty. Feel free to make all of one flavour or the other or play about with layers like I did. Enjoy!

Ingredients (makes 24 jellies)

  • 1 cup coconut milk such as Aroy-D (240 ml/ 8 fl oz)
  • 1 1/4 cup fresh blackberries (180 g/ 6.4 oz)
  • 1/2 cup grass-fed gelatin (55 g/ 1.9 oz)
  • 1 cup cold water (240 ml/ 8 fl oz)

  6. Place your mould on a flat surface (I used a silicone jelly mould but you can use an ice cube tray or chocolate mould too.)
  7. Pour your mixture into two separate jugs. If making striped layers, half fill the mould with one mixture (about 1 tablespoon per each).
  8. Place in the fridge for 30 minutes. (To keep the mixtures from setting whilst you wait, place the jugs in pans of hot water.)

  9. Remove the jellies from the fridge and top with the other flavour (about 1 tablespoon per each). Place back in the fridge for 2 hours 30 minutes to fully set. If making all one flavour simply fill the whole mould and chill for 3 hours.

Mine turned out a bit jiggly. How can I firm them up? Are they suppose to be able to withstand room temperature w/o melting? Taste great!

Hi Sherry, I'm not sure to be honest - did you use real gelatine (did you try to weigh it just in case?) The amount should be sufficient for firm jellies.

Thank you for this recipe!
1) I love jellies. It's the one thing I really miss eating LCHF/Keto
2) I just don't like sweeteners (they leave a metallic taste in my mouth, and I've tried them all)
These look great 😄

Thank you Mandy, I hope you enjoy these jellies! 😊

Hi, this sounds delicious and I am so happy to find a recipe without any sweeteners (I don't use them). My question is whether you use powdered gelatin or sheets of gelatin? Does it matter which?

Reply

You can use either but we used gelatin powder in this recipe 😊

I'm excited to try out this recipe. I actually have most of the ingredients and equipment from your instructions already. With one exception. I keep coconut cream at home instead of coconut milk. Can I substitute it without negatively affecting the jellies?

Reply

Yes, you can use coconut cream instead - the fat content will just be slightly higher 😊
