Low Carb/Keto Friendly Creamsicle Jello: WIN

Sometimes at night I get this insane craving for something sweet. Last night was one of those nights. I battled the craving out and just went to bed grumpy and dissatisfied. So, when I woke up this morning I was on a mission to remedy my sweet cravings but to maintain my low carb lifestyle. I starting browsing some ideas online and I stumbled upon one that I was really curious about AND I already had all the ingredients in the house! It’s also a HUGE bonus that this recipe only has THREE ingredients! Operation low carb creamsicle jello was in the works before 10 o’clock this morning. I was determined to have a dessert tonight.

I’ll be honest, I really don’t like jello. It gives me flashbacks of college parties where far too many jello shots were handed to me and it gives me the shivers. The only way I can eat it now is with a dollop of whipped cream on top to mask the slimy texture. This recipe combined jello and cream so I knew I had to give it a try! Also, there is a lot of discussion right now about the positive effects of gelatin in your diet for those who are trying to lose weight. I haven’t done much reading on it yet, I just know it’s a thing. Anyone well versed on this? Drop me a line! Help a girl out because ain’t nobody got time to traverse the wilds of Internet forums debating this topic. Spoon feed me!

Now, let me spoon feed you this stupidly simple recipe!

Here’s the line-up: 1 (0.6 oz) box sugar free jello (you can use any flavor), 1 cup sour cream, and 1 cup heavy whipping cream.

You’ll need to bring 2 cups of water to a boil as directed on the jello box, I HIGHLY recommend using a hand mixer with the whisk attachment for all this mixing!

I went ahead and got my heavy whipping cream and my sour cream measured out while my water was heating up.

Add the 2 cups of hot water to the powder jello and whisk whisk whisk for at least 2-3 minutes!

Add your cup of sour cream and whisk whisk whisk again for 2-3 minutes. Looking quite pepto bismal-ish.

Next, add your cup of heavy cream and (you guessed it!) whisk whisk whisk for 2-3 minutes!

You’ll have 4 glorious cups of this amazing smelling liquid to divide into portions.

I used these Pyrex dishes and did 1 cup individual portions to make it easier to keep track of our carb counts each day!

They certainly don’t look fancy, but they sure smelled amazing at this point!

Popped a lid on them and got them in the fridge for a good 4 hours minimum.

The texture is similar to those yogurt whips you can get at the grocery store and it’s so rich and creamy! I ended up only eating half of my portion and saving the other half for later!
