Chocolate Raspberry Gummies (Low Carb, Keto)
Ok, I know this is definitely a different kind of recipe than you might be used to on this site, as I’m usually not using many processed foods and instead concentrating on the real ingredients. But I’m also fully transparent with my diet and if you follow my Instagram, especially my stories, you can see that there are days I don’t eat just perfectly clean. Because I totally believe in balance. And currently I’m in a stage in life where I’m pretty busy and I really enjoy being physically active and I want to make sure that I keep my muscles healthy and don’t waste them, so I either have a collagen protein or essential aminos as a part of my diet. And let’s be honest, they are pretty processed supplements. But that said I did my little research and I use only products that are made of good quality ingredients without sugar, artificial sweeteners, preservatives, fillers and other nasties.
Anyway, the whole introduction is just a little explanation for the ingredients used in this recipe. Because part of the flavour is coming from the raspberry essential aminos. However, if you’re not keen on using those I completely understand and have some other options available for you in the recipe 😉
- 2 cups water
- ¼ cup coconut cream
- ¼ cup raw cacao powder
- 2 tbsp gelatin
- 4 scoops of ATP Science raspberry vegan EAA's (you can swap this ingredient for example for raspberry stevia drops, raspberry protein powder of your choice or just raspberries) If you're using the fruit, I would recommend cooking it for a bit in the water first, then blend it and then add the other ingredients and probably some sweetener such as honey to make the gummies a bit sweeter.
- Boil the water first, then dissolve the gelatin in the 2 cups of hot water.
- Let it cool slightly, then add the coconut cream, cacao powder and raspberry aminos and blend everything together.
- Pour the mixture into silicone mould and put it in the fridge for about 2-3 hours to set.
