Do these healthy protein gummies taste like the store bought candy version you can buy at the store? Well, no. They are a bit different.  So don’t be expecting a store bought gummy bear. 🙂

These healthy gummies are free of ingredients like processed sugar, corn syrup, citric acid, and artificial fruit flavorings, which greatly impact the flavor and texture of store bought gummies.

These healthy lemonade protein gummies are made with grass fed gelatin (not to be confused with collagen). You’ll need this ingredient to help give this paleo snack it’s gummy texture.

Collagen is a great protein packed food too. It’s great to add to baked goods, soups and stews, or your drinking water. It just won’t set up liquid into a gummy consistency.

So make sure to double check you have the right product before making these healthy lemonade protein gummies as they’re easy to get mixed up. 🙂

Protein Gummies – How Much Protein Is There?

1 tablespoon of gelatin has 10 grams of protein.  These healthy gummies contain 4 tablespoons of gelatin, which is equivalent to 40 grams of protein!  Depending on the size of your gummies, that’s about 1 gram of protein per gummy.

Healthy Lemonade Protein Gummies – How To Make

First, place the lemon juice, maple syrup, and water into a medium sized sauce pan. SLOWLY add the gelatin a little at a time while whisking vigorously to avoid any clumping.

Next, turn the heat up to medium low. Continue whisking while the mixture heats up. Once the mixture is hot, but not boiling, you’re ready to transfer the liquid to your silicone gummy molds.

Next, place the molds onto a sheet pan for easy moving. Carefully pour the lemon juice mixture into the molds, and place them into the fridge for about 1 to 2 hours while they set up.

Once firm, pop them out of the silicone gummy mold and enjoy!

INGREDIENTS

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Pour the lemon juice, maple syrup, and water into a medium sized sauce pan.
  • SLOWLY add the gelatin a little at a time while whisking vigorously to avoid any clumping.
  • Turn the heat up to medium low. Continue whisking while the mixture heats up.
  • Once the mixture is hot, but not boiling, you're ready to transfer the liquid to your silicone gummy molds.
  • Place the molds onto a sheet pan for easy moving. If there's bubbly foam on the top of your lemon mixture, scrape it off with a spoon and discard it.
  • Carefully pour the lemon juice mixture into the molds using the dropper it came with or a liquid measuring cup, and place them into the fridge for about 1 to 2 hours, or until they set up. The time it takes will depend on the size and shape of your mold.
  • Once firm, pop the gummies out of their mold and enjoy!
  • Store in the fridge in an airtight container for up to a week.

NOTES

If you're sensitive to the flavor of gelatin, you can add just 3 tablespoons instead of 4, but it will have a more jello-like consistency.  Still delicious though!
To make these protein gummies keto, sub the maple syrup for lakanto maple flavored syrup
If you don't want to purchase silicone molds, you can pour the mixture into a loaf pan or 8x8 pan and cute into squares once set up. 
If your mold didn't come with a dropper (or you lost it like me), pour the heated lemon juice mixture into liquid measuring cup, use a spoon to scrape out and discard the foam on top, then carefully fill up each cavity in the silicone mold.
