A light and lovely layered gelatin dessert that's so good even those who aren't lo-carbing it love it... it's easy, has eye appeal, and and it's versatile since you can use as many flavors as you'd like as it works just as well with 1 box as it does with many! You can even alternate between 2 flavors or make 6 layers of one flavor, etc. Jell-O has no carbs, so your carbs come purely from the sour cream--less than 1 gram of carb per serving!
Assorted flavors of Sugar-free Jell-O gelatin, i.e., strawberry, black cherry, orange, lemon, lime (I've used anywhere from 5 to 7 boxes)
16 oz. sour cream
(you'll need 1/2 cup per box of Jell-O used so you'll need to gauge the size of the container based on this. For 5 boxes of Jell-O and a 16 oz container of sour cream, for example, the ENTIRE PAN has about 15g carbs!)
How To Prepare:
Dissolve 1 box Jell-O in 1 cup hot water (as the box says).
From this, remove 1/2 cup of the Jell-O and mix with 1/2 cup sour cream.
In a 9x13 glass pan (or your favorite mould), start your first layer by pouring in the sour cream & Jell-O mixture. Place in refrigerator to set (about 20 min).
Once the sour cream layer is set, add 1/2 cup cold water to the remaining plain jello; then carefully pour this over the sour cream layer. Allow to set, then continue alternating layers of sour cream mixed and plain Jell-O as described above. While the layers set, you can move on to preparing your next flavor.
The more layers, the longer it takes to make since you have to wait for each layer to set; but it's the best dessert you'll have while lo-carbing and well worth the time!
