Super Jello

Do you need to add some fat to your diet? Are you looking for a very low carb snack to keep you from going on a carb binge? I tinkered around with sugar free Jello until I came up with a creamy sensation. A little Super Jello goes a long way to satiating hunger.

1- 0.30 OZ box of sugar free Jello (any flavor of the smaller box)
1/2 package Philadelphia Cream Cheese (4 carbs)
1 cup of boiling water
1/2 cup of heavy whipping cream

(1) Boil one cup of water.
(2) Cut the cream cheese into chunks and place in a microwave safe glass bowl. Place the cream cheese into the microwave for about one minute. Stir the cream cheese until all of the lumps are removed and the cream cheese is smooth.
(3) Pour the Jello into a bowl (I used a plastic bowl with a lid, so that I could put it straight into the fridge). Pour the hot water into the Jello and stir quickly until all of the gelatin is dissolved.
(4) Pour heavy whipping cream into the bowl and use a hand whip to stir until well blended.
(5) Use a spatula to pour the cream cheese into the Jello mixture. Use the hand whip to stir the mixture until well blended. Put the lid on the bowl and place it in the fridge until it's completely gelled.

1/2 cup per serving, 4 servings, 1 carb per serving

Kick It Up a Notch:
You will quickly find that this rich and creamy treat is very satisfying. You probably won't be able to eat an entire half cup serving at once. I spoon out two to three spoonfuls and I'm a happy girl. But perhaps you want to kick it up a notch on the nutrition ladder? Add a couple of tablespoons of chia gel to your Super Jello to make it super nutritious!
