SF Lemon jello, dissolved into 1/4 cup boiling water. Whip up 16 oz cream cheese, slowly add in jello. Then add in 1 cup sour cream and *maybe* add sweetener if desired, whip up light and fluffy. Let set for a little bit and it will taste yum yum delish!

I have made this with 2 jellos and is just as good but more solid. but also could half the cream cheese and sour cream with one package of jello or half a package of jello. can do any flavour of jello.

Are you just trying to satisfy a sweet tooth or did you want a real dessert you can serve at the table?

When I am craving sweets I just mix cream cheese with SF vanilla davinci and cinnamon.
Then I either eat it plain....add nuts.....nut butters....or fruit (usually berries)

Quick and easy. Single serving.

I make cream cheese clouds, but varied the recipe from Linda Sue's website to this:

CREAM CHEESE CLOUDS
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup heavy weight cream (she uses unsalted butter instead, but I prefer it with cream)
1/2-3/4 cup granular Splenda or equivalent liquid Splenda *
1/2 teaspoon vanilla or other flavoring

Beat everything with an electric mixer until fluffy. Drop by bite-size spoonfuls onto a wax paper-lined baking sheet. Freeze until firm, at least 1 hour. Store in the freezer and eat frozen.

Makes 24 clouds

One of my all-time favorites:

2 oz cream cheese
3-4 oz canned pumpkin
1 T flax
Shake of cinnamon, nutmeg & cloves
Splenda

Stir and nuke. It's like a quick/easy mini pumpkin pie, LC style.

You don't do things by halves do you Kerry LoL!!

I make one min muffins, and use SF syrup mixed in with cream cheese as topping. Yum, and hits the spot!

Some very good ideas here...gonna have to try some of these myself.

A variation of this recipe: 1 Lemon Jello disolved in 1 C. boiling water. Cool.
8 oz. cream chreese, softened.
Splenda to taste (about 1/4 - 1/3 C.)

Whip 1 C. whipping cream.

Mix jello and cream cheese until smooth.
Fold in whipped cream.

Pour into springform pan. Refrigerate until firm. Yum!

Thanks so much. Those all sound good. I think I'll try one of them tonight. Last night I had the 3 minute chocolate cake (from Linda Sues Recipes) with cream cheese frosting mixed with Rasberry Torani.

<---- PMoon - That is my baby. He is so sweet. Shih Tzu's are the best. He never leaves my side.

From my blog--my husband loves this and you don't have to whip cream or wait for gelatin to set.

Toffee Cheesecake Pudding

8 ounces softened cream cheese
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 cup DaVinci English Toffee flavored Syrup
1/4 cup toasted chopped pecans

Blend the cream cheese, sour cream and syrup. I use an immersion blender. Chop nuts and toast them lightly. Spoon the pudding into dessert glasses and sprinkle nuts on top. Chill. Serves 3-4.


Beautiful and so good.

Mix 2 ounces cream cheese with 1 packet of Splenda and a packet of True Lemon or True Lime. That's just one serving.

There's also my very favorite: Mock Danish!

Soften 2 oz cream cheese, whip in one egg, add 1 splenda, and cinnamon if desired.

Microwave for approx 1/12 minutes.

I really like the Cream Cheese Cupcakes, so good and easy to make as well.

Jenna: Just make sure you get them used to grooming early. Daily brushings and combing around their eyes. Start brushing their teeth early too. The hair gets matted so quickly.

I like to shave mine in the summer, but I leave his tail, beard and ears. Plus the top nots can be uncomfortable for him, so I give him a little buz cut up top so he can have a break from all the brushing.

I attached a picture of his summer cut. He looks like a little old man. Oh, I also decided to add a picture of his best friend our other dog.

I am brand new to this forum and wanted to thank everyone on this thread for getting me here! I had some extra cream cheese and wanted a low carb dessert and this thread popped up in my Google search. I've come back here several times over the past month to try out different recipes, and finally decided to join today! I'm so excited about really getting going on my low carb diet again. This time I definitely want to push past my comfort zone and stop being overweight for good! Thank you, again, for being here!!!

Just cut the block up into tiny cubes, roll into balls and roll in dry sf jello mix. Cheesecake balls and they turn out gorgeous colors!
