I made up a recipe for Gelatin Dessert...
The reason being that I have been having
high blood sugar readings,
and so I have been trying to lower my carbs...
The sugar-free gelatin that you buy
is made with artificial sweetener.
I wanted to avoid that by using
Stevia for the sweetener.
It is a natural sweetener,
made from the Stevia plant,
and has no calories!
It is very low in carbs, too!
After some experimenting
with different proportions of ingredients,
this is what I came up with.
The recipe is pretty simple...
Lemon or Lime Gelatin Dessert
2 Cups water
1 envelope Knox Gelatine
1/3 Cup Stevia
4 Tablespoons lemon or lime juice
2 drops of yellow or green food coloring
First, pour one envelope of gelatine into 1 cup of cold water.
|Stir and let sit for a few minutes.|
|In the meantime, get your serving dishes ready. |
I put mine on a tray for easy handling.
|Pour the mixture (this is lemon) into the dishes, |
cover loosely with plastic wrap,
and refrigerate for 4-6 hours or until it is set.
|Each one is about 1/3 cup serving. |
If you have it plain, there are NO calories!
It does have maybe one half of a gram of carb
from the Stevia.
|If you add a little whipped cream, |
you do have one or two carbs,
but still very low, for a dessert.
|YUM! It is so light and refreshing!|

My little lady is blooming again...
Every year, she never fails...
She gets no special attention...
She likes that windowsill that she sits on year round...
You can see how long her roots are...
And her flowers last for months!
What a beauty!!!
I am blessed!
'Til next time,
Love ya, Jean
