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!|
