Substitute for Knox Gelatin

I was going to make Jay Robb's Pina Colada no bake cheese cake. The recipe called for a pkg of Knox Gelatin. I don't have the gelatin but I do have no cook freezer jam which is fruit pectin. Would you substitute the pectin for gelatin? If not, what would you substitute? I already have my cream cheese at room temp. so I want to get this made.

Here's the recipe:

Ingredients:

2 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese
1 package unflavored gelatin
1 cup water
1/8 tablespoon stevia
1 teaspoon unsalted butter (to coat pan)
1 scoop Jay Robb Piña Colada Whey Protein

Directions:


Pour 1 packet unflavored gelatin into 1 cup boiling water, and stir until dissolved, approximately 5 minutes. Blend cream cheese, dissolved gelatin, stevia, and Jay Robb Piña Colada Whey Protein until creamy smooth. Pour blended ingredients into lightly buttered 9" baking dish. Cover with clear plastic wrap, and place in refrigerator for 5 hours or overnight.

Option: Can serve with 1 tablespoon Real Whipped Cream and chopped raw, unsalted walnuts.

near as I can tell, pectin is a carbohydrate and you probably don't want to be using it. I know the nutrition facts tend to show it as zero everything, but the serving size is minuscule.

Thanks. I couldn't come up with a substitute, so I just skipped it, and had a soft serve cheesecake dessert. I served it with chopped walnuts and whipped cream. I thought it was just okay, but DH said it was really good.
