Tips on Making Sugar Free Gummies
Not only is this sugar free gummy recipe easy to prepare. It’s also more flavorful and has a better texture than off-the-rack gummy worms. So, skip the store-bought version and we’ll teach you how to make them at home with these helpful tips:
- Customize your gummy candies by picking your own flavors of Kool-Aid. As long as they’re sugar-free, you’re good to go. You can try different colors and flavors, but red and orange will make realistic gummy worms.
- Want sugar free sour gummy worms? Add citric acid into the mix. You will need to add only one teaspoon to this recipe.
- Aside from Kool-Aid, you can also use fruit tea for flavoring for your low carb candy. Brew three or four bags in 1 cup of water. Just add stevia, erythritol, Splenda, or the sweetener of your choice.
- Use gummy worms and gummy bear molds if you have them. You can also use silicone molds, mini muffin tins, and ice cube trays or cut out fun shapes of homemade gummies using cookie cutters.
- Spritz the molds with light cooking spray. This will help your gummy candy to come out easier later on.

Commonly Asked Questions
Can sugar-free gummies cause diarrhea?
One of the ingredients in making gummies is sugar alcohols, primarily maltitol. While these sugar alcohols do not affect blood sugar levels like actual sugar, depending on each individual’s tolerance, maltitol can cause one to have stomach bloating and loose bowel movement. So the best practice will always be to consume these sugar gummies in moderation.
How do you dye gummy worms?
Most Jell-O and Kool-Aid already have artificial food coloring in them. But if you are using a fruit tea base and it needs a boost in color, you can always add a few drops of food coloring.
Can I freeze gummies?
Yes, you can freeze gummies. Make sure to keep them in a tightly sealed container or heavy-duty freezer bag. If properly stored, your gummy worms will be good for about 12 months.
