Default Homemade Diet Jell-O (gelatine; jelly in UK)

1 envelope (1 tablespoon) Knox Gelatine powder
1 cup boiling water
1 cup cold water; sparkling water or diet soda of choice
10 packets Splenda (or artificial sweetener of choice)
1 teaspoon unsweetened Kool-Aid powder (adjust to taste)

Sprinkle gelatine into cold water. Let stand 1 minute. Mix in Splenda and Kool-Aid powder. Stir until thoroughly dissolved. Add boiling water and stir. Taste the mixture and adjust amount of Splenda and Kool-Aid to taste. You may need a little more of each. Chill until firm.

Makes 4 servings.

Can be frozen to make popsicles, too.

Thanks, Broad. I'll try that today with Fresca which is a lime diet soda.

Default Tired of fruit flavored Jell-O? Try this...

Gelatin ala DaVinci

2/3 cup water
2 envelopes unflavored gelatin (Knox)
1 cup DaVinci Gourmet Sugarfree Splenda sweetened syrup, any flavor
1 cup water
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice

Combine in a shallow dish 2/3 cup water and gelatin. Stir to mix. Allow to sit for 5 minutes.

Combine in a large measuring cup or small bowl DaVinci Gourmet Sugarfree Splenda sweetened syrup (pick your flavor!) and 1 cup water. Microwave until almost boiling. Pour hot syrup mix into softening gelatine and stir well.

Place syrup/gelatine mixture in microwave and heat an additional 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from microwave and stir well, being careful to stir all the way to the bottom of the bowl. Repeat heating and stirring for 5 to 8 minutes (until ingredients are completely mixed.) Add lemon juice and stir again.

Allow to cool until it reaches room temperature. Refrigerate for 6 to 8 hours.

Finished gelatine will be less "clear" than commercial Jell-O Brand. Feel free to boost colors when using syrups that are not heavily colored, with plain liquid food coloring.
