Keto Strawberry Jello Dessert
When cutting down on sugar and carbs, this Keto strawberry jello dessert is what goes down at our house. It’s creamy, nutty, full of fresh berries, and keeps well in the refrigerator sittin’ pretty for when the sweet tooth urge hits
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.Print
