As you've probably noticed, I'm REALLY enjoying the jel desserts and puddings from Simply Delish right now. So when they challenged a group of us to create and share our unique recipes with the two products they had selected – I was all over it! I was given two boxes of the vanilla pudding mix and two of the strawberry jel dessert. Game on!

Oh and a quick note about these products – they're sugar free, aspartame free, keto friendly, and suitable for vegans! They also doesn't contain any artificial colors or flavors – and are very reasonably priced: $2.99 each or they are available in variety packs of four for $11.96. PLUS you can get 10% off Simply Delish when you use coupon code SAFTC – bargain!

With Valentine's Day approaching I couldn't resist working the theme into my dessert – but you could absolutely make this cake at any time of year with any of the jel dessert flavors – try peach, raspberry, black cherry, or orange!

How to Make a Keto Strawberry Jel Cake

To make the base, combine melted butter and almond flour together in a bowl.

Press the mixture into the base of a greased 9″ springform pan.

Bake in a preheated oven for 8-10 minutes or until the edges darken, then let cool.

To make the pudding layer, make up one pack of Simply Delish strawberry jel dessert according to the pack instructions.

Working quickly, next combine two packs of Simply Delish vanilla pudding with two cups of unsweetened almond milk in a stand mixer.

When smooth, and with the speed on low, add the strawberry jel mixture.

Spread the pudding mixture over the base. Hull and halve some fresh strawberries (I love my hulling tool!), and place them around the edge of the pudding layer, and two in the middle (if making for Valentine's Day make sure they are heart shaped!).

Place in the fridge for at least an hour, or until thoroughly set.

For the final layer, make up a second box of Simply Delish strawberry jel dessert, again according to the pack instructions. Leave to cool for 10 minutes, then carefully pour it over the pudding layer and strawberries.

Isn't the color fantastic – and knowing that it is ALL NATURAL is even better!

When you have a slice, you get the cool refreshing strawberry jel on top, then the creamy strawberry-vanilla center, finished with the nutty and buttery base. It's SO good!
