Kre-Alkalyn gummy bears are pretty much my all-time favorite thing to make! You know why? They are candy you can actually feel GOOD about eating! Gelatin is solid protein, and both gelatin and Kre-Alkalyn are good for your joints as well—there is tons of research you can check out online about it. Kre-Alkalyn has no flavor at all and no funny aftertaste, so you don’t even know it’s there. I determined to make them taste as ‘purple’ as possible because Kre-Alkalyn purple is my favorite color and it’s my favorite supplement. So, the candy had to be purple. How did I go about making it taste ‘purple’? I couldn’t find any kind of flavorings in the baking section at my local supermarket that would ‘taste’ purple except for lavender. I tried that and…drumroll, please…I promptly threw it away.
One day while in the baking section of a large art supply store (I’m sorry, I’m beating this to death but it’s true!) I found this dark purple grape flavoring in a teeny weeny little glass bottle. Best two bucks I ever spent! It’s the perfect flavoring for this candy. It tastes ‘purple’. In fact, it tastes so ‘purple’ that it’s like eating the best jelly with NO CALORIES!!! NONE! NADDA! ZILCH! ZIP!!! It also colors the candy a stunning purple color.
To make gummy bears you will need a gummy bear mold with a dropper—I bought mine on eBay. You don’t have to limit yourself to just gummy bears—you can use other candy molds for this. I also make gummy stars, gummy fish, and even gummy revolvers! The clear plastic candy molds work well as long as the shapes are pretty shallow so you can get the candy out of the mold easily once it’s ready. You can get those in the baking section of an art supply store too. If you don’t want to bother with molding candy, you can always make gummy blocks. Just pour the gelatin in a glass baking dish and cut it into squares when it solidifies. They sell kitchen droppers at most well-stocked stores that sell kitchen utensils, or an art supply store. An art supply store may seem like an odd place to find useful things to make food with, but hey—food can be art as well. If you want a wider selection and don’t mind waiting on the mail, buying the molds and flavors online may be the way to go for you.
- 4-8 Kre-Alkalyn capsules or 4 scoops of Kre-Alkalyn Powder
- 4 packets of unflavored gelatin
- 1 cup of water
- ¼- ½ Tsp. grape flavoring
- 2 stevia sweetener packets
- 4-6 monk fruit sweetener packets
- Candy mold
- Kitchen dropper
Put all of the dry ingredients into a large glass bowl and mix with a fork. Pour the water in and whip with a fork like you are scrambling eggs to get any lumps out. Pour in the grape flavoring and microwave until it foams, usually 1 minute and thirty seconds to one minute and forty-five seconds. Taste the mixture to see if it’s sweet enough or “grape-y” enough. If it’s too sweet for you, add another gelatin pack and ¼ cup water—make it separately and mix it once it has been mixed and nuked to dilute the flavor (you will get more candy). Use the dropper to suck up the warm mixture and drop it into the molds. Once the molds are full, put them in the freezer for about 10 minutes or the fridge for an hour. Remove the candy from the molds and you have some seriously awesome candy that will make you really popular at the gym!
