Since starting Chemo I've fell off the Low Carb Wagon. I ate what I felt like eating and enjoyed it very much. But it's time to get back into shape. With each day I feel a bit stronger, the naps are a bit shorter and energy lasts a bit longer. So I began my journey back to low carb living, with dessert because Cancer has taught me to enjoy everything!
I found the recipe for low carb cheese cake at www.genaw.com. It does have a different texture but as desserts go, it's good! At only 2 net carbs a slice, I can dig in and enjoy it often.
It doesn't have a crust which is where most of the carbs are. By changing out the flavor of Jello, I can have different flavors of cheese cake.
No-Bake Jello Cheesecake
1 small box sugar free Jello, any flavor
1/2 cup boiling water
1/2 cup sour cream
16 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 Tablespoon Vanilla
In a small bowl, dissolve the Jello in the boiling water, stirring for 2-3 minutes. Chill until no longer warm. In a medium mixing bowl mix the sour cream, cream cheese and vanilla slowly to avoid getting a curdled mess. Add in the Jello and mix very well
Pour into a greased 10 inch glass pie plate and chill.
It's a nice dessert and by changing out the flavor of jello you can have strawberry cheesecake, or Orange. I made this one with lemon jello so I enjoyed lemon cheesecake.
So I'm back on the low carb wagon and working towards getting back into shape.
