Keto Recipe: Sugar-Free Jell-O

Keto Recipe: Sugar-Free Jell-O

July 22, 2019 49 By William Morgan


Hi, I’m Aaron. Welcome to A.D. Keto! This is the
place where every week, I talk to you
about the ketogenic diet, and today we’re
starting a recipe series that I’m going
to call #ILIKETOEAT. Today we’re
keeping it as simple as humanly possible,
starting from the very, very, most basic
recipe I could think of: sugar-free
Jell-o. What you’re going to need are a
few very simple things: a saucepan (one
that’s capable of holding two cups of
water), you’re going to need a liquid
measuring cup, a bowl in which the Jell-O
will eventually rest, a fork (yes, a fork) and
a packet of your favorite flavor of
sugar-free Jell-o. Today we’re doing
LEMON. First things first: We’re going to
take your liquid measuring cup, fill it
up to the one cup mark and start it to
boil. Then immediately take your liquid
measuring cup again, fill it up to the
one cup mark, and set it aside. Then
we stare at the boiling water until it
boils. So once your water’s done boiling,
you’re going to dump it in your serving
bowl. Then we’re going to take our box of
Jell-o, open it up. Inside is a little
packet. We’re going to rip it open (with
our fork ready) and dump the mixture into
our bowl. And the reason I use a fork is
that when you stir the stuff into the
hot water, it just… I think there’s less
surface area on the tines. I’ve used a
spoon before, and there’s a lot of Jell-o
looking stuff all over the spoon when I
take it out, so I just use a fork. I find
it easier to mix it up that way.
Dump that in, and then start stirring.
We’re going to stir this for about 30 to
45 seconds, until all the powder is
completely dissolved in the hot water.
Then we’re going to take our cup of cold
water (which we set aside), and dump it
into our bowl, mixing again.
Wo we stir this for about another 30 to
45 seconds, until it’s all mixed together
and it’s all combined, and all the stuff
is dissolved. We just put it in the
fridge for about 4 hours. I know it’s
kind of dumb to make a cooking video
about Jell-O, probably the easiest thing
in the world to make, but this has really
become a staple of my diet. I used to
have, at night after work, two, three, four
bowls of cereal after… after dinner as a
snack, just watching TV. That’s out. That’s
gone. And now, I have one of these, at
least one of these every night instead.
And usually, I’m making a double batch of
these — so two cups of water to boil, put
in two packets, two cups of cold water,
and I usually eat the whole thing.
I made a double batch this morning. This
flavor – it’s ready to go – this would be
delicious and perfect by itself, but I
wanted to talk a little bit about the
magic of this stuff heavy whipping cream.
I am probably super-dumb for not knowing
this, but if you whip up heavy whipping
cream, you get…whipped cream! So about
a third of a cup of heavy whipping
cream into the mixer. This mixer actually,
was given to my wife and me as a wedding
gift in 1998, and it stayed inside its
box for almost 20 years. I
dug it out of the attic this past spring,
when I discovered all the things I could
do with it. It had been 19 years, and it
was in perfect condition.
So I crawled around up in the attic, and
found that mixer. I was very pleased
because it worked. It’s awesome. I use it
almost every night. So you put about a
third of a cup of heavy whipping cream
into the mixer — and I’ve kind of got it eyeballed — I know that when I dump it in, as
soon as the little bottom part kind of
disappears, and it’s covered completely
by heavy whipping cream, that’s when I
stop pouring, and then I take a handful — a
handful? No. A few drops of vanilla
extract. Drip that in there, and
I usually take about a teaspoon of
Truvia. You can use whatever sweetener
you like. I happen to be a fan of Truvia.
I did use Splenda for a little while,
but changed over to Truvia I really like it soyou take about a teaspoon of that, and
dump this in, and just start it. Okay, slow at first, so it doesn’t splatter all over the place, and
then high speed! So as soon as soft peaks form in the heavy whipping cream,
turn it off. The unwrapped stuff tends to climb up the sides here, so just give it a
once-over, get this kind of all mixed
together. That should do it. And this is
my favorite part – taking this off and
giving it the old [oum!] You know, take that,
and I’ll just kind of plop it right on
there. Spread it around. I like — it’s kind of
weird, but I like to kind of put a nice
coating of heavy whipping cream –heavy
WHIPPED cream I should say — around the top of this thing. So that’s Jell-o!
Perfectly keto-friendly. I’ll flash up
the macros, even though there’s almost
nothing to Jell-o, it’ll flash the macros
up on the screen here, and hopefully
Jell-o does it for you in the evenings
like it does for me.
Should I dig into it? Yeah. I should dig
into it? Okay, here I go.
Oh man, that’s good.
So that’s it for now! I hope you enjoyed
this weird video about me making Jell-o.
