These raspberry lemonade electrolyte gummies are easy to make, are packed with protein and keto and kid friendly!
I’m a huge fan of electrolytes.
I know . . . it’s a very strange thing to be a fan of, but it’s true! We’re told to drink a TON of water each day and I learned the hard way that JUST drinking a ton of water does not mean you’re actually hydrating yourself.
You actually need ELECTROLYTES to balance out the water that stays in your body and without that, you’re really just pissing all your effort away . . . literally.
There are a lot of ways you can get electrolytes into the body, but these raspberry lemonade gummies not only use an electrolyte supplement but they also pack a high protein and collagen punch by using gelatin. Kids, adults and skeptical husbands love them and you can make them in a variety of flavors depending on which electrolyte powder you decide to use.
What are electrolytes?
Electrolytes are minerals that have an electric charge. They help keep the body’s fluid in balance. Electrolyte minerals are:
How do I make electrolyte gummies?
To make electrolyte gummies, you’ll need electrolyte powder, gelatin, water, the juice from one lemon and a silicone mold or silicone muffin tins.
First, add 1 cup of water to a small sauce pan and sprinkle 2 tablespoons of gelatin in making sure none of it clumps. This helps the gelatin to “bloom” and will seem grainy at first, but whisk it until fully combined.
Next, add gelatin liquid to a 2 cup measuring cup and whisk in the juice of one lemon and one scoop of electrolyte powder until fully combined.
Pour and portion into preferred silicone mold, and set in fridge for at least one hour before popping out of the molds and enjoying.
Store raspberry lemonade electrolyte gummies in fridge for up to 2 weeks.
What electrolyte supplement powder can I use?
There are many electrolyte powder supplements you can use, I prefer Ultima Replenisher in either raspberry or pomegranate cherry, but here are some others you could use:
- Ultima Replenisher – Raspberry
- Ultima Replenisher – Variety Flavor Pack
- Keto Vitals Electrolyte Powder – Mango
- Dr. Bergs Electrolyte Powder
- Vega Electrolyte Powder
What is gelatin and which one do I buy?
IMPORTANT: Collagen peptides are NOT the same as gelatin. Collagen peptides is processed in a way that will dissolve in hot AND cold liquid and will NOT produce the jello effect.
The best collagen gelatin to buy:
Great Lakes Gelatin (the ORANGE canister)
Vital Proteins (the GREEN canister)
You can use any silicone mold you like for making electrolyte gummies. I purchased my regluar square one at a craft store in the baking section, but they can easily be purchased online.
Before I purchased my silicone mold that I used now, I used silicone muffin tins I had laying around.
My favorite silicone molds:
Square Silicone Mold (the one I have)

- Next put the water and gelatin over low heat and keep whisking until gelatin fully dissolves into a clear liquid. It is important that the water is hot but not boiling.
- Next, add gelatin liquid to a 2 cup measuring cup and whisk in the juice of one lemon and one scoop of electrolyte powder until fully combined.
- Pour and portion into preferred silicone mold, and set in fridge for at least one hour before popping out of the molds and enjoying.

If you have another flavor of electrolyte powder, simply omit the lemon juice and continue on with the recipe!
