I make flavored jello by using 2 packets of unflavored gelatin desolved in 2 cups of very hot water and 1 envelope of "unsweetened" kool-aid (any flavor). I add enough splenda to make it just sweet enough (tastes very). I stir until everything is dissolved then I add 2 cups of very cold water. Let it set up for about 4 hours in fridge and you have sugar-free jello without aspartame. It is great with a dollop of whipped cream too.
Also, if you go into Linda Sue's recipes, she has a marvelous "No Bake Cheesecake Recipe" using unflavored gelatine. >^.,.^<

I usually make "jello" with it too. But on the savory side...how about an aspic? Lots of interesting recipes to be had!

YUM on the aspic idea! My mom used to make a savory one with nuts and veggies. She would make a thick cream cheese sauce to go with it. >^.,.^<

Panna Cotta is yummy and you can use just about any flavor of Da Vinci syrup in it.



PANNA COTTA VARIATION
1 envelope unflavored gelatin
3 tablespoons sugar free syrup, such as Da Vinci or Torani, any flavor
2 cups heavy cream
1/2 cup sugar free syrup, such as Da Vinci or Torani, any flavor

In a small bowl, sprinkle gelatin over 3 tablespoons syrup; let stand 5 minutes to soften. Bring cream and 1/2 cup syrup to a boil on medium heat or microwave on HIGH for about 6 minutes or so, watching closely. Remove from heat; add gelatin mixture; stir until gelatin is completely melted. Pour into 6 individual dessert cups or medium bowl. Cover surface with plastic wrap, to prevent skin from forming, if desired. Chill at least 3 hours or until set.

Makes 6 servings

Per Serving: 279 Calories; 29g Fat; 3g Protein; 2.5g Carbohydrate; 0g Dietary Fiber; 2.5g Net Carbs

Or how about this:



ORANGE FLUFF WITHOUT ASPARTAME
1 packet unflavored gelatin
1/4 cup cold water
1 package orange Kool-Aid mix
1 cup granular Splenda or equivalent liquid Splenda
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed orange juice, 1/2 a small orange
1 teaspoon orange peel
1/2 teaspoon orange extract
12 ounces low carb vanilla yogurt
1 cup heavy cream, whipped

In a large glass bowl, sprinkle gelatin evenly over cold water and let stand 5 minutes to soften. Microwave on HIGH 1 minute or until boiling. Whisk in Kool-Aid mix, Splenda and orange juice. Whisk until gelatin and Kool-aid are completely dissolved. Whisk in orange peel, extract and yogurt. Very gently fold in cream until no white streaks remain. Chill at least 2 hours until set.

Makes 8 half-cup servings

With granular Splenda:
Per Serving: 140 Calories; 11g Fat; 4g Protein; 5g Carbohydrate; trace Dietary Fiber; 5g Net Carbs

With liquid Splenda:
Per Serving: 128 Calories; 11g Fat; 4g Protein; 2g Carbohydrate; trace Dietary Fiber; 2g Net Carbs
