Can you Buy Sugar Free Gummies?
There are certainly a few companies out there that provide some decent options for sugar free candies. However, most of them use sweeteners that will often cause digestive distress or issues.
One of the only companies out there that I have tried with some measure of success is Smart Sweets. I use these for my boys when I need a quick sweet treat and don't have something on hand.
The sweetener fiber that Smart Sweets uses is known to possibly impact blood sugar levels, so if you are a THM lady or Keto, use it with caution.
Stevia Gummy Bear Recipe
A much better option to buy gummy candy is to make your own. This sugar-free gummy bear recipe can serve you for years to come and will end up being cheaper (and more delicious) than other store-bought options with questionable ingredients.
With a fairly cheap mold and some quality products, you can make absolutely delicious gummy bears and use them for you or your children!
For this sugar-free gummy bear recipe, I use Trim Healthy Mama's Blue Skies Colada hydrates. These hydrates have only 1 net carb in each package and
How many can you eat at a time?
Your serving size will vary a little depending on the molds that you use. If you use the molds that I used, you will have extra liquid at the end. To use all the liquid, you would need about six of these and the pack only comes with 4. I like to take extra liquid and pour it into a 9x9 glass dish and cut it into squares after it films.
The true serving size of these little bears would be about 25 bears.
Sugar Free Gummies for a Snack
These are basically 'free food'. They are low in carbs, fat, and calories. They have just a tiny bit of protein. In the Trim Healthy Mama world these would be called a fuel pull.
Personally, these would not sustain me for a snack, so if you live the Trim Healthy Mama lifestyle, I recommend having another side with a more substantial amount of protein. Having a few of these (remember about 20-25 of these tiny bears is a serving size)
