LOW - Carbohydrate gummy snacks



Yes, I know, too good to be true!

My type 1 diabetic daughter is delighted.

Before we get started on the recipe let me introduce you to the Sweet Drops liquid stevia collection.  I haven't tried them all, but the many I have tried are GREAT!
 As you can see the Stevia liquid drops come in many flavors.  CLICK HERE to get some more information.

      INGREDIENTS:

*1 cup lemon juice
*1 cup water
* a hand full of raspberries (fresh or frozen)
* liquid lemon stevia (2 droppers full)
* 3 T honey
* 6 tablespoons beef gelatin powder

Add your lemon juice (I have frozen lemon juice on hand ) and raspberries into a small sauce pan and boil over low heat.  Mix and mash until the berries are dispersed into the liquid.

Now you are going to strain out the seeds.

The raspberries give the mixture a nice natural food coloring and add the sweet to the tangy lemon flavor.  Next you are going to slowly stir in the beef gelatin to the hot liquid.  Then add the room temperature water and other ingredients to the gelatin liquid mixture. Stir, stir, stir......
  
 All you have to do now is pour the mixture into a small glass pan or silicon candy mold. Put the pan or mold into the refrigerator for at least an hour so the gummies can set nicely. 
 Cut your gummies up into bite sized pieces.  I got about 70 pieces.

These gummies need to stay in a cool environment.  They will melt if left out on the counter too long.  I would say that they are good at room temperature for about thirty minutes.

I made some gummies for my kids this Halloween.  The way I packaged them created a lot of excitement.
Carb count = less than 1g of carbohydrates per gummy.
