  • ~ 1 1/2 tbsps gelatin powder 14g
  • 1/2 cup cold water 120g
  • 2/3 cup boiling water 160g
  • ~1 tsp Sugar Free Mio or Crystal Light or any other sugar free liquid or powdered flavoured drink mix , taste it, you want the mixture slightly sweeter than how you'd make it to drink.
  • 1/2 cup granulated xylitol sweetener 96g for coating *Note you can use another granulated sweetener but most dissolve almost immediately on contact. I find xylitol stays solid longer - read my tips above about xylitol.*
  • 1/2 tsp citric acid for coating optional, adds the sour flavour, without it they will just be sweet!


  • Line a loaf pan with Saran Wrap, making sure there are no holes and then spray the Saran Wrap with oil.
  • In a bowl, add your 1/2 cup cold water and sprinkle the gelatin on top, mix once, then set aside.
  • Heat your next 2/3 cup of water in the microwave until very hot/boiling or in a kettle. Pour the hot water into the cold gelatin mixture and mix.
  • Add your flavoured drink mix and stir until dissolved or combined, taste and add a touch more if needed. You want them sweet like candies but remember they will also have a sugar coating!
  • Pour this warm mixture into the lined loaf pan and then carefully place the pan flat in the fridge to set overnight or ~6 hours.
  • Place a large piece of parchment or wax paper on your counter and flip the jell-o onto it.
  • Slice the sugar free gummy into long rectangles, then squares using a pizza cutter or sharp knife.
  • In a small bowl, mix together your sweetener and citric acid.
  • Sprinkle this over the gummies and toss them together just before serving, enjoy your Keto Sugar Free Sour Gummies!


  • You can store these in your fridge in an airtight container for up to 5 days!
  • Make sure to give them enough time to set before flipping them out of the pan or you'll end up with a big mess!
  • Feel free to switch up your flavourings and try new combinations.
  • The sweetener WILL dissolve into the keto gummies along with the citric acid so I recommend tossing them just before serving for best results. 
  • I use granular xylitol sweetener to coat them because it takes longer to dissolve on contact. You can use this yourself just be cautious if you have pets as it can be harmful to animals, especially dogs if consumed.
