Keto Creamsicle Jello
- 1 box sugar free Jell-O Gelatin (in whichever flavor you fancy)
- 2 cups boiling water (in whichever flavor you fancy)
- 1 cup sour cream ,
- 1 cup heavy cream
- If you have a small box of jello (.3 oz box), halve the rest of the ingredients and continue on! 7-21-14-creamsicle2 Bring 2 cups of water to a boil and add it to the jello powder. Follow the directions on the box, which say something like “whisk briskly for 2 minutes.” I pay very close attention to that rule, because I read that some people who mixed their jello with cream saw separation of layers later on. I have not had that issue, and I think it is because I whisk dramatically for an extended period of time. Why the hell haven’t I put this in my KitchenAid yet? I need to do that. Add in 1 cup of sour cream. Whisk as if your life depended on it, until fully incorporated. Then whisk some more. Add in 1 cup of heavy cream. You got it, whisk whisk whisk all day long, whisk whisk whisk while you sing that song. I’m definitely putting this shit in the KitchenAid next time. Edited 2/19/18 – I put this in my KitchenAid, and it was glorious. I just dumped everything in all at once and whisked at a medium speed! This left both of my hands free, so I could eat cheese while I watched it whisk. 10/10 would recommend this method. Distribute equally amongst 4 containers. To be perfectly honest, sometimes I only eat half of a container at a time. So you could probably even be happy with a half-cup serving, if you have that size container and that suits your fancy. Or make ginormous portions. I don’t care! Chill for x amount of time until set. I don’t even know how long that is, people. I make these on Sunday and eat them throughout the work week. I’d let them set for at least 12 hours, if I were to hazard a guess. 7-21-14-creamsicle3 So far I’ve tried Strawberry, Orange, Strawberry-Banana, and Raspberry. My favorite is definitely the orange – dreamsicle flavored. Be aware that the cream will alter the color of the finished product… so your brilliant red strawberry jello will look like a solidified blob of Pepto Bismal. It’s not pretty, folks. The orange is definitely the most attractive in my opinion. But that’s not what matters, right? It’s the nutrition that’s important. And while I can’t say that these have helped me lose weight faster, I did finally break my stall, and they are quite tasty little snacks. I’ve gotten into the habit of eating one on my first break at work, and deeming it my breakfast. Maybe when it gets cold outside I’ll switch back to bulletproof tea and start mixing gelatin into that. Until then, these are a nice little cold dish. You may even enjoy them as a dessert. At 330 calories, 30 grams of fat, 3 grams of protein, and 2 net carbs each (4 if you consider that there is <1 carb in each serving of heavy cream), they’ve got enough heft to them to stick to your ribs rather than jiggle all the way down
