These sugar-free lemon & lime Sour Jelly Worms are the most awesome keto Halloween recipe! So much fun to make with the kids and super easy.
These low-carb jellies are also made with grass-fed gelatin, so good for your gut health and you can leave off the sour coating if you prefer. They’re super delicious with or without it.
I chose to keep the lemon and lime separate for different tastes and colour but you can totally mix together if you prefer. I also used two natural food colourings to make the colours pop but again you don’t have to use this. They still turn out nice, just paler. The yellow was a turmeric based food colouring and the green was spirulina with a touch of turmeric (see below).
The sour coating is made from granulated low-carb sweetener (I used Erythritol but you could use monk fruit or Swerve too) and organic Vitamin C powder. Since the sour coating for these low-carb jellies doesn’t contain any preservatives, they need to be eaten pretty much straight away or the coating absorbs into the jellies. It still tastes delicious though, it just doesn’t last too long.
Without the coating these healthy sugar-free gummies store well in the fridge for 3 - 4 days so you could always just make up a speedy batch of coating (takes about 30 seconds) and coat them in it when ready to eat.
Of course, these low-carb jellies don’t need to be made into worms. How about Mad Marching Gummy Bears (see below)? I may have got totally carried away in the Halloween spirit and made these too! Or enjoy at any time of the year and use a silicone mould of your choice. Just have fun with them. Make sure you tag us @ketodiet_app if you make them so we can see all your awesome creations!
Happy Halloween guys!
