Sugar-Free Sour Jelly Worms


Step 1Place the gelatin in a bowl. Add the water and allow to bloom for 10 minutes whilst you squeeze the lemons and limes.

Step 2Juice the lemons and limes.

Step 3Place the lemon juice in one pan and the lime juice in another. Add 1/2 the bloomed gelatin and 1/2 the sweetener to each pan. Heat on a medium flame and whisk until fully melted.

Step 4Turn off the heat and add the natural food colouring.

Step 5Pour the mix into your jelly moulds. I used a pipette to make worms for Halloween but you could use any you like. Place in the fridge for 2 - 3 hours or until fully set.

Step 6When set, remove the jellies from the moulds.

Step 7To make the sour coating, mix the granulated sweetener and the powdered citric acid in a bowl. Dip the jellies in the sour mix and eat straight away. It's best to coat these just before serving. As there’s no preservatives in these, after a while the sour coating absorbs into the jellies but they still taste good!

Step 8Place on a wire wrack and enjoy. Best eating fresh with the coating and without the coating can be stored in the fridge for 3 - 4 days. If you want to add the coating, bring jellies to room temperature to soften slightly before coating them.

Step 9Apart from works you can use the mixture to make any shapes such as these cute Keto Mad Marching Gummy Bears (will make about 200 pieces)! Aren't they cute?😍
