Fruity Creamy Gelatin?

I wanted to make a fruity creamy gelatin dessert-type thing. I wanna use SF Koolaid, Knox gelatin and HWC. What's a good recipe for this? Would I need to sweeten it more with Splenda? Also, what would you call this dish?

Thanks!

oh heavens yes, sweeten it! the koolade powder is very tart. you can also do this sort of thing with the DaVinci or Torani syrups or extracts plus sweetener. we are used to thinking of "jello" in fruit flavors, but nothing stopping it from being caramel or vanilla or white chocolate! LOL

you can just make it as you are describing, using say 1/4 of the liquid being cream, or you can whip it to make more of a mousse. you chill the gelatin mixture till it's very syrupy and then beat it. beat the cream separately and fold together, would be my suggestion.

good luck!

For a really simple "creamy jello" I prepare jello as on the package and then mix in 2 oz cream cheese with my stick blender. Pour it in little single serving cups. It's just a bit creamy, certainly better than regular jello to me with only about .5 carb per serving.

I came up with this recipe so that I wouldn't have to use sugar free Jello which has aspartame in it. I think you could sub 8 ounces of cream cheese for the yogurt.



ORANGE FLUFF WITHOUT ASPARTAME
1 packet unflavored gelatin
1/4 cup cold water
1 package unsweetened 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 the gelatin evenly over the cold water and let stand 5 minutes to soften. Microwave on HIGH 1 minute or until boiling. Whisk in the Kool-Aid mix, Splenda and orange juice. Whisk until the gelatin and Kool-aid are completely dissolved. Whisk in the orange peel, extract and yogurt. Very gently fold in the cream until no white streaks remain. Chill at least 2 hours until set.

Makes 8 half-cup servings
Do not freeze

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

I ended up combining two dessert recipes instead... I call it

Low Carb Cathedral Windows Crema de Fruta Gelatin (LOL)

To make this:
Mix 1 pouch Orange KoolAid (one that's good for 500mL water)
with 1 cup water and 1 pack Knox gelatin. Let set.

Mix 1 pouch Berry KoolAid (same size) with 1 cup water and 1 pack Knox gelatin. Let set.

When jello is set, layer thin slices of coconut flour bread on the bottom of a serving dish. Cut up both jellos and scatter on top of coconut bread.

Mix 1 1/2 c heavy cream with 1 pack of Knox gelatin and 3 T of Splenda. Pour over fruity jello. Chill for at least four hours.

This definitely hit the spot for me. It's so yummy. Perfect for snacking or dessert

Will post pics when I manage to snap a picture before devouring a slice LOL

some people like the end product of these, I have never been able to stomach the results because of the mouth feel. Just wrong to me, tried gelatin and cream and gelatin and cream cheese too many times and threw it away. Its the creamy mixed into the gelatin that never is palatable to me.
Have to admit, as a kid in the 70s I liked those jello salads with mayo and cheese in them though. Lime, pears, mayo and cheddar I think. sounds nasty typing it out now lol

I made sugar-free cherry jello today with one cup of boiling water, and one cup of unsweetened almond milk. It immediately curdled and became weird, then when poured into the dishes it sort of separated into horizontal layers. Very vivid in color!

I will taste it later and report. I hope it's not horrid, lol.

Sherry, how was the layered jello? If it tastes good, we could make layered desserts on purpose.

This would be great with coconut milk too. We have this dessert and we call it pink gulaman. The top part gets really creamy.

The jello made with almond milk was AWESOME!!!! I was just tickled by how well it turned out!

I'm a bit shy about trying new foods, and this was my first foray into the world of almond milk....it's a keeper.

I'll take a picture later, but the jello stratified into three layers, the bottom (thinnest) layer was creamy, the middle was more or less clear, and the top was creamy. The creamy layers were slightly softer with a lovely texture, and subtle creamy taste.

Adding a cup of almond milk added 40 calories, 2gr carbs, with one gram of fiber for 1 net carb for those of us who do the "net carb" thing.

Bottom line: Me and almond milk.....it's the beginning of a beautiful friendship, I think!

Very Dairy Supreme

1 envelope unflavored gelatin
1/4 cup water
1 cup cream
1/2 cup equivalent sugar substitute
1 tsp vanilla
8 oz sour cream
8 oz cream cheese cut in cubes

Dissolve gelatin in cold water then bring to a boil. Let cool a bit before putting it into the food processor with the rest of the ingredients.

I usually make two different flavors of this. I make one (like vanilla), pour it into my mold and let it set. Then I make another flavored with either cocoa or coffee granules or both and pour it on top of the first layer for a cappucchino-like dessert.

I also use Kool-aid flavors or Crystal Light flavors (but don't add the sugar substitute when using Crystal Light) for combinations of fruits like Strawberry-Lemon or Orange-Lime or Vanilla-Orange like a dreamsicle.

I just put my second batch of sugar-free jello made with almond milk into the fridge. This time I went all the way....no water, only almond milk. (I used orange jello, so I'm aiming for a creamsicle flavor. It did the slightly curdly thing, but didn't separate into layers, which makes sense since there was no water involved.
