The Ketogenic Diet
The ketogenic diet is a high-fat, low-carbohydrate diet that is intended to induce ketosis, a state in which the body burns fat for energy rather than glucose. When the body enters a ketosis state, it produces molecules known as ketones, which the brain and other organs can use for energy. This diet can result in weight loss, better blood sugar control, and a variety of other health benefits.
The Importance of Electrolytes
However, because the ketogenic diet is low in carbohydrates, it can cause insulin levels to drop, causing the body to excrete more electrolytes such as sodium, potassium, and magnesium. Electrolytes are minerals that help the body maintain proper fluid balance, regulate nerve and muscle function, and support a variety of other vital processes.
When electrolyte levels become imbalanced as a result of the ketogenic diet, it can result in symptoms such as fatigue, headaches, muscle cramps, and constipation, which is commonly referred to as the "keto flu."
The Solution? Keto Electrolyte Gummies!
To avoid these symptoms and maintain proper electrolyte balance while on the ketogenic diet, it is critical to consume adequate amounts of electrolytes through food or supplements and to stay hydrated.
Consuming keto electrolyte gummies, which are both tasty and convenient, is a great way to boost electrolyte levels. These keto gummies contain essential minerals like sodium, potassium, and magnesium.

These homemade keto gummies are straightforward to make with only three ingredients. Make several different flavors by multiplying the ingredients and using different jello flavors.
- Jello mix (sugar-free) - Make a combination using your favorite flavors. I used raspberry and lemon for this recipe.
- Gelatin (unflavored) - This helps to thicken up the keto gummies so that they stay firm.
- Electrolyte powder - Adds much-needed electrolytes that can be depleted on a low-carb or keto diet. Use unflavored or flavored for added sweetness. Just make sure it's sugar-free.
- Water - Cold water and boiling water.
How To Make Keto Gummies
- Prepare the gelatin mixture. Combine the jello mix, gelatin, electrolyte powder, and ⅓ cup of cold water in a small bowl.
- Whisk the mixture. Whisk all the ingredients together until well combined. Let the mixture sit at room temperature while the gelatin soaks up all the water.
- Add boiling water. Once the gelatin has soaked up the water, add another cup of boiling water to the mixture and whisk very well.
- Transfer to molds. Transfer the electrolyte gummy mixture into the gummy bear mold using a liquid dropper. Using different silicone candy molds, you can make gummy worms, dinosaurs, animals, and many other shapes.
- Refrigerate to set. Carefully transfer the electrolyte gummies into the fridge to set for a minimum of 30 minutes. Once set, remove the keto gummies from the fridge and remove them from the candy mold.
Keep these keto electrolyte gummies in an airtight container or sealable bag at room temperature or in the fridge.
Keep them in a cool, dry place out of sunlight, and they'll keep well for 2 weeks. In the refrigerator, they'll keep well for up to 1 month.
Can You Freeze Keto Gummies?
Yes, for longer-term storage, you can freeze your keto gummies. Freeze them on a baking tray to stop them from sticking together, and then transfer them to a freezer-proof bag or container. They'll keep well for at least 6 months.
