Since I shared my Thai Chicken Skewers the other day I thought I'd share my other current obsession... this absolutely yummy, fluffy, fruity dessert. I love it. It's a perfect ending after a BBQ. Refreshing, light. I actually slipped this past a bunch of non-ops the other night. They were completely surprised it was a no sugar added, weight loss surgery friendly dessert. I'm definitely making it for Memorial Day.
This would be great for early post-ops too. If you aren't able to have fruit yet just leave it out. What I love especially is most of these types of Jello & fruit desserts are made with tubs of cool whip and mini marshmallows. My version is made with protein packed Greek Yogurt, so you can feel good about eating it. Though it's soooo good you'll think you are being bad ;)
Shelly's Fluff Stuff
1 cup Boiling Water
1 box (4-serving size - the small one) Sugar Free Strawberry Jello Mix
3 1/2 oz. (half a small container) Fage Greek Yogurt
1 Tablespoon Sugar Free Torani Syrup (I used SF Strawberry but any fruity flavor would work)
1 1/2 cups Fresh Strawberries, sliced
Pour boiling water slowly over jello mix. Stir till dissolved. Set aside.
Mix yogurt & syrup together till well combined. Add to Jello mixture. Beat with an electric mixer till well combined. I use this gadget.
Place in fridge for 1 hour. Remove from fridge and beat again for 5 minutes till fluffy. Fold in berries.
Put back in fridge and allow to set fully (about 2 hours)
I served a scoop with a squirt SF Whipped Cream. You can use any fruit (fresh, frozen defrosted or canned drained), any Jello flavor, any Torani Syrup flavor.
My other favorite is SF Black Cherry with cherries...
Jello brand Sugar Free Gelatin comes in oodles of flavors so the possibilities and combos are endless... Black Cherry, Cherry, Cranberry, Lemon, Lime, Mixed Fruit, Orange, Peach, Raspberry, Strawberry, Strawberry Banana, and Strawberry Kiwi. It also comes in 2 box sizes I use the small one for this but if you have the large just use half the box (so 1 Tablespoon of dry mix.)
I'm looking forward to a fresh summer peaches from the Farmer's Market & SF Peach Jello combo.
