Cool, clean, sometimes creamy and rich, sometimes bursting with fresh Fruit, gelatin desserts make my mouth water just thinking about them!
Parties: I like to let the gelatin cool until it's lukewarm (I learned the hard way that pouring hot gelatin into drinking glasses can crack them), then pour into beautiful wine glasses or water goblets.
Kids: pour gelatin into clean new toys like small dump trucks, little pails - use your imagination! Use small toys for individual servings or one large toy from which they can all serve themselves. They'll love it - and you!
Picnics: pour gelatin into disposable cups, cover with saran wrap and a rubber band. If you won't be eating within an hour or two of leaving home, freeze your gelatin desserts. They'll thaw out while you enjoy your picnic and won't turn into liquid mush, unless you wait too long to eat them.
Note: I don't like to use commercial sugar-free gelatins as they contain aspartame (NutraSweet) which in a majority of people affects their metabolism so they can't lose weight. (Note: It's not a permanent symptom, usually lasting only for the day that you've ingested too much aspartame.) For that reason I often use plain, flavorless gelatin and add flavoring and my choice of sweetener. Flavoring can be Fruit juice, pureed Fruit, decaf coffee, sugar & aspartame-free soda or powdered drink, or herb tea such as the Red Zinger teas which taste like weak Fruit juice.
Make up a package of sugar-free fruit-flavored gelatin according to package directions. Pour into popsicle molds and freeze. Optional: add 1 to 2 cups of sugar-free soda or fresh Fruit juice to the dissolved gelatin along with the amount of water the package calls for.
Make up a package of sugar-free fruit-flavored gelatin according to package directions. Whip up a batch of UnDiet Whipped Cream. Fold into partially set gelatin. Spoon into popsicle molds and freeze. Optional: add 1 to 2 cups of sugar-free soda or fresh Fruit juice to the dissolved gelatin along with the amount of water the package calls for.
Dissolve 1 packet unflavored gelatin by first sprinkling the gelatin over 1 tablespoon cold water, then stirring in 3 tablespoons boiling water. Use this mixture to gel 3 cups semi-firm filling such as yogurt, pureed tofu, sour cream or creme fraiche.
1/4 cup honey and 1 teaspoon vanilla will sweeten the above amount of filling.
maple syrup instead of honey
juice from one lemon, lime, or 1/2 and orange - use in place of the water and to replace 1/2 cup yogurt
1 cup strong decaf coffee in place of the water and 1 cup of the yogurt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup cocoa powder and 1/4 cup date sugar (I haven't tried this yet so taste and adjust before allowing to gel)
1 cup pureed Fruit to replace 1 cup yogurt
your choice of low GI sweeteners such as Sweet N Low, Splenda, SomerSweet or Stevia instead of honey
Puree 5 cups Fruit, fresh or frozen so that you end up with 3 cups puree and 1/4 cup honey or unrefined sugar.
Dissolve 1 packet unflavored gelatin by first sprinkling over 1 tablespoon cold water in serving or storage container, then stirring in 3 tablespoons boiling water. Stir in Fruit puree. Cover and refrigerate until firm.
Banana Cream Jello
Add 1-2 bananas to the Fruit puree so that the total amount of puree is still 3 cups.
Pour one batch of your choice of Fruit jello into serving container and refrigerate.
When first layer of jello is semi-firm make 1 batch Creamy Jello (try using just bananas for this layer) and pour into a serving container.
When creamy layer is semi-firm, pour 1 batch of Fruit jello in which you've used a different kind of Fruit than you used in the first layer. When this layer is semi-firm make 1 batch Creamy Jello and pour over 2nd layer. When this layer is firm top with UnDiet Whipped Cream.
Extra Special Creamy Jello
Stir together 1/4 cup heavy cream or creme fraiche and 2 and 3/4 cups Fruit puree. Stir into dissolved gelatin.
Pour into a saucepan. Sprinkle 1 envelope unflavored gelatin over above mixture. Stir over medium heat until gelatin is dissolved, 2-4 minutes. Pour into dishes. Chill until set.
