This low carb layered Jello recipe is a fun dessert that is versatile and tasty!
OK, before I launch into how refreshing and pretty this dessert is, I’m going to warn you that it isn’t a QUICK dessert to make. Lots of layers = lots of waiting for the Jello to set. But with a bit of advance planning this dessert would make the perfect end to a dinner party meal.
I chose lemon and lime flavor Jello to make this dessert, but try which ever combination of flavors you like – I particularly like raspberry and strawberry! Just make sure to get the sugar free Jello. To make this dessert I used:
- 1 pack sugar free lime Jello
- 1 pack sugar free lemon Jello
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- Lemon and lime zest, to garnish
Divide the lime Jello powder in half and mix it up with half the amount of required hot and cold water. Pour into four goblets or cups and leave in the fridge to set.
Make the lemon Jello in half quantities like the lime flavor, and leave it to cool. Then carefully pour it on top of the lime Jello. Return it to the fridge until set.
When the lemon layer has set, make the remaining lime Jello (again with half quantities of water) but reserve 1/4 teaspoon of the powder. Repeat as the lemon layer – cooling, layering, and leaving in the fridge until set. Do the same with the remaining lemon Jello, again reserving 1/4 teaspoon powder.
When the final Jello layer has set, add the cream and reserved Jello powders to a stand mixer and whip until stiff. There’s no need to add any sweetener because the Jello powder adds a little flavor and sweetness. Smooth the cream layer over the top of the Jello. Garnish with freshly grated lemon and lime zest.
Sugar free Jello is a zero carb food (yay!) and the cream works out to less than 1g net carbs per person based on four servings. A delicious dessert that is absolutely guilt free!!!
