Sugar-Free Treat

Do you like dessert? I do and so does my Mississippi Man, but we’re sensitive to sugar. Too much of it makes his blood sugar rise, and me not feel so good. So this Keto Strawberry Dessert fills the order for something sweet.

It’s also appropriate for Keto which is a diet high in fat and protein and low in carbohydrates. See Fat Bombs for more info on this diet. We aren’t eating Keto right now, but if you are this recipe will be helpful. If you aren’t going the Keto way I suggest eating it in moderation because of the high-fat content.

It’s Berry Delicious

The first steps in making this Keto Strawberry Jello Dessert are slicing the strawberries then chopping the pecans. You can omit the nuts if you like, but we prefer leaving them in. Pecans add crunch and taste to many things. Try putting them on your salad instead of croutons for extra protein and fewer carbs.

Next, be sure you bring the water to a boil before pouring over the jello to dissolve and stir, stir, stir. After stirring, add cubed cream cheese using a mixer to incorporate it all together.

Now, it’s time to whip the heavy cream. It’s my favorite part! Be sure and stick the beaters and the bowl in the freezer to get them cold before adding the cream. This makes things all better! It will be creamier and easier to whip up. Then fold the cream into the jello mixture and enjoy the art.

The last things to add are the berries and the pecans. Stir them up before pouring it all into a lightly greased casserole dish.

All that’s left to do is refrigerate until it chills and the gelatin sets firm, about a couple of hours.

    • Oops! You’re right, it’s suppose to be a 9” x 9”. Thanks for bringing it to my attention. I have made the editing change. Have a great day!

  • Hi! Thank you for this recipe! At the time we are trying to keep sugar down and use these berries that are beautifully in season and this worked out! Looking forward to making more of yours!

    • You’re welcome! I’m glad this recipe will help you out with lowering your sugar intake. Thanks for checking out my recipes.

  • This is supposed to be KETO, but you don’t say how many carbs are in a serving. I would like to know that as I count carbs daily.

    • I have the nutrition information at the bottom of the recipe card. Sometimes the info doesn’t show if you are viewing from your phone. It shows when viewing from a laptop or desktop. I added the 9.8 carbs that are in each of the 9 servings to the recipe description. It may take a while to update for you to see it. I will continue to work on making the nutrition facts easily viewable. Thank you for bringing it to my attention and I apologize for any inconvenience. Have a nice day!
