Making Your Own Gummy Worms

OK, so this is not a medically brilliant post, but I thought I would share! For a low sugar snack, you can try making your own gummy worms! Thank you to whomever developed this fun treat!

  • 2 packages sugar free Jell-O
  • 2 packages plain gelatin
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • (optional) If you like sour gummies, you can add a packet of Kool-Aid to the ingredients
  1. Stir everything together until the powders are dissolved.
  2. Pour the mixture into a shallow plate and refrigerate.
  3. After it is hard, slice into worms and enjoy!
The whole recipe only has about 50 calories and includes 12 grams of protein - so enjoy!
