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!
Each one cup serving was 2 net carbs!!!
- 1 (0.6 oz) box of sugar free jello (your choice of flavor)
- 1 cup full fat sour cream
- 1 cup heavy whipping cream
- 2 cups of boiling water (according to jello package)
- Pour jello powder in a large mixing bowl
- Add boiling water to bowl and whisk for 2-3 minutes
- Add sour cream and whisk for 2-3 minutes
- Add heavy whipping cream and whisk for 2-3 minutes
/// I got this recipe from Screwed On Straight blog!
