Dairy Free Keto Jello
Blackberry Jello July 4th Dessert
– Paleo Flourish
Ingredients: blackberries or blueberries, lemon juice, water, gelatin, coconut yogurt or coconut cream, strawberries.
This is a wonderful patriotic dessert, designed for Independence Day, but it could also be suitable for the upcoming Royal Wedding in the UK! You have the red, white and blue layers comprising fruit and yogurt and eaten all together this is a creamy and zingy fresh Paleo dessert that you can enjoy any time, celebration or not! If you use blueberries you will not need to use the honey as they are sweet enough.
Paleo Jello (with Berries)
– Paleo Flourish
Ingredients: strawberries, blueberries, gelatin powder, water.
This recipe gives you jello with a bit of a twist! It has the consistency of mousse because the jello is mixed with fruit puree, making it a lot more exciting. You can use whatever berries you prefer, and if the fruit is sweet enough you may not need to add any sweetener to it. This dessert is light and refreshing and would be a lovely paleo treat served in a fancy glass on a hot summer day. This is a great way to encourage kids to eat more fruit too!

Ingredients: gelatin, water, coconut cream, coconut stevia drops.

These lovely sweet treats have the taste of old-fashioned coconut cream sweets and can be enough to satisfy your need for something sweet but without the added refined sugar.
Stevia is new to a lot of people starting out on Keto. Wondering if it’s safe? Dr. Mark Hyman, M.D. says it is. Not a big fan of artificial sweeteners in general, he says, “Among sweeteners, I make one exception with stevia.”

Here is a basic keto recipe that shows you how to make jello, which is a healthy low carb snack or dessert. You can choose what flavor you have by changing the fruit juice, or make it all coconut by using coconut water as the base flavor. Jello is handy to have as a quick snack for after school or if you find yourself flagging mid-morning.
Homemade “Jello” Gelatin
– Whole New Mom
Ingredients: gelatin, sweetener, stevia extract, water, lemon juice.
As well as helping to strengthen your hair and nails, gelatin is great for soothing the digestive system, so jello comes into its own when you have someone who is off their food. It is easy to eat and digest and can be easily made keto-friendly. This jello is flavored with lemon juice, but you can use whatever liquid you like to dissolve the gelatin.

Dairy Free Keto Jello Gummies
Keto Coconut Tea Gummies

Gummies are a snack that can be enjoyed by the whole family and can be a useful source of gelatin which can help with joint health and strengthen hair and nails – not only that, they taste so good! These ones are simple to make and you can use whatever tea you prefer. There are several silicon molds on the market now, but it is easier to use an ice cube tray to shape these keto snacks.
Keto Cucumber Lime Gummy Snacks
– Keto Summit
Ingredients: cucumber, fresh mint leaves or mint tea leaves, lime juice, gelatin powder.
When I first saw the ingredients in these little keto gummy snacks, I just thought how refreshing these would be for a hot, summer day. With the cool cucumber, fresh mint and zingy lime, these would be so tasty and could be a good way to encourage even the smallest members of the family to increase their gelatin intake. If you don’t have silicone molds you can use an ice cube tray.
AIP Carrot Gummies
– Healing Autoimmune

With only two ingredients, this has got to be one of the simplest keto snack recipes ever!

The recipe for these gummy bears, which are so cute, uses raspberry tea as the base liquid, and this is great for the low carb lifestyle as there are zero carbs in them. However, if your family doesn’t like the raspberry or other flavored teas, you can make them with fruit juice but it will increase the carbs a bit. You can even make this vegan by using agar-agar instead of gelatin.

You don’t even need to buy fancy molds as you can pour the mixture into an oven dish then cut into cubes once it is set, but the molds can be fun for kids!
Hibiscus Homemade Gummies

Ingredients: hot water, passion tea bags, gelatin.
There is something really special about homemade sweet treats that make them even better than store-bought, and they are relatively simple to make.

Again, this is a versatile keto-friendly recipe, so try experimenting with other flavors to find your favorites.
