red, white, and blue jello

Approximate Ratio 3:1

Makes 12 mini jello (Calories per jello 30, carbs per jello 0.28)

I found some pictures of fun jello ideas for fourth of july online.  Here’s the keto version i tried…

Ingredients

For blue jello

2T boiling water

2T ice cold water

1/4 envelope (1.8g) gelatin

1 drop of blue food coloring

few drops of preferred flavor (i used Bickford blueberry flavor)

1t (2.2g) Truvia

For red jello

2T boiling water

2T ice cold water

2.5g red sugar-free jello mix (i used strawberry banana)

For white

3T (45g) cream, heated

3T (45g) cold cream

3/8 envelope (2.7g) gelatin

1/2t (2.2g) Truvia

1/4t (2g) vanilla flavor, alcohol-free

I have used silicon mini cupcake pan so it will be easier to pop out the jello.

Directions

For each color, prepare by dissolving all the ingredients in hot water (cold cream), then add the cold water (cold cream).

spray mini muffin pan lightly with cooking spray and wipe it clean with a paper towel.  this will allow the jello to pop out easier.

spoon in 1/2 teaspoon of blue gelatin mixture into the cavities of prepared muffin pan.  refrigerate until set but still sticky on top.  repeat with other colors in the order of white, red, white, blue, white, red.  it is important to pour the next color when it is sticky to prevent the layers from separating.  each layer takes 2-4 minutes.  check frequently.

when the last layer is done, wait until the top is firm (maybe another 30 minutes), pop out each jello and store them in air tight container in refrigerator.  i find it easier to remove without damaging the shape when i remove it at this time than to wait until everything is completely set.

Notes

Another way to enjoy this is to set it in a small glass cup.  Don’t forget to use the cooking spray and wipe it off…

Tiffany started making keto meals for her daughter Clara in 2010, after Clara’s diagnosis with Infantile Spasm. While tough at times, managing between the strict requirements of the diet, Clara’s very sophisticated sense of taste, an older daughter whose overwhelming enthusiasm to help is only rivaled by her ability to make a much bigger mess in the process, and a dog who is determined to eat Clara’s leftovers to the detriment of her own waistline, Tiffany is grateful that her hands are being used to heal Clara. Tiffany hopes this website would be especially helpful to those working or single moms who do not have the time to design and try out new meals. Bon appetit to all the keto kids in the world!
