Syn Free Jelly Sweets, A healthier alternative to Haribo

Every week at slimming world people talk about syn free jelly sweet’s, now I have an admission to make; I don’t like haribo or jelly sweets.

When I tell people this they look at me at disgust, like I have two heads or something. I just don’t get what all the fuss is about, they are over sweet and sickly. I would much prefer a healthy sugar free snack. And yes there really is a thing such as low fat sweets. These syn free Jelly Sweets are so easy to make.

The boys love Haribo, this is something that Jack will always have to give an extra insulin injection for and you would not believe the carbs in them soooo high. I really am not keen on him eating them, but he’s a teenager I can’t deny him things he likes. However low fat snacks are the way forward. A this low carb Haribo Alternative is perfect.

So I decided to try the recipe for sugar free Jelly Sweets

Here is how to make jelly sweets like Haribo

If there is a chance they are a good substitute then these low sugar jelly sweets have got to better for him.

You will need;

2 sachets sugar free jelly crystals
2 sachets powdered gelatin
1 pot mullerlight yoghurt


Add both jelly and gelatin sachets to half a pint of boiling water and stir well.
Pour 2/3 s of the jelly into a flat container and put in fridge until set.
Then whisk the Muller yogurt into the rest of the jelly.
Once bottom layer set then pour on jelly/muller mix and place back in fridge to set.
Once set cut into bite size pieces.

Home Made Low Sugar Jelly Sweets

Quick and Easy Low Sugar Jelly Sweets

These slimming world jelly sweets taste great, and are a such a quick and easy home made recipe to try at home with kids.

We decided to do a batch of tangfastic, for these we just used the gelatin with orange jelly and heated diet lemonade instead of using water. The boys loved these and munched on them all day, the great thing was I wasn’t stressing as they were not full of sugar of carbs. I think next time we have friends visit I might make a batch for the kids to munch on instead of buying sweets.

    Were they not sticky at all? Planning on making them for the kid’s birthday but wouldn’t want a gang of little ones running around with sticky hands!

      They are like Jelly consistency, easy to eat with hands but not to run around with as they may get a little sticky then. I would serve them in a bowl I think or try freezing them x
