Alright, here we go. I’ve mentioned these electrolyte gummies on Instagram a couple of times, and every time, someone asks for the recipe. I’ve been trying different measurements and I think I finally got them just right. When you use too much gelatin, the texture gets weird. If you don’t use enough gelatin and the texture isn’t right.
The first time I tried making these electrolyte gummies, I didn’t use enough of my electrolyte powder and didn’t use the lemon juice, and the flavor wasn’t strong enough. There was SO much trial & error over here. SO. MANY. GUMMIES.
Ok, so why electrolyte gummies? Well, mostly because they’re fun. In the most basic terms, electrolytes help you stay hydrated. In general, I have a terrible habit of not drinking enough water throughout the day…but lots of coffee. So, I usually drink some type of electrolyte drink every day (this is my go-to brand). And these little gummies are a fun way to get those electrolytes in a different way. Plus, I just really like gummies.
When it comes to actually making these, you’ll definitely want some kind of silicone mold. I grabbed a gemstone-shaped one at a local craft store that has 12 wells. This recipe fills two 12-well molds, and 4 pieces make up “one serving.” If you want to order something quick, this little pixel heart mold looks like a fun one!
Now, when it comes to making these, you can use any flavor of electrolyte powder that you choose. You can even mix two flavors if you want to! For these photos, I made grape, pink lemonade, lemonade, and orange. (Side note, the orange ones taste just like orange popsicles.)
Sugar Free Electrolyte Powders
Easy Electrolyte Gummies
- Silicone Candy Mold
- 2 scoops Electrolyte Powder
- 2 Tbsp Unflavored Gelatin (for vegetarian/vegan, use Agar powder or flakes)
- 2 Tbsp Lemon Juice
- 1 cup Water
- Heat up 3/4 cup of water (I usually just heat mine with my kettle).
- In a bowl or large measuring cup, mix together the electrolyte powder, gelatin or agar, lemon juice, and 1/4 cup of water. Stir constantly, the gelatin will thicken really quickly!
- Add the remaining 3/4 cup of hot water, mixing well.
- Keep stirring for about 2 minutes to dissolve all the powder as much as possible.
- Pour into silicone candy molds and refrigerate for at least an hour.
- Store in an airtight container in the fridge!
