Luscious Low Carb Creamy Lemon Jello Jigglers!

My youngest son is on a strict low carb/high fat diet treatment for his Seizure Disorder, so lately my time in the kitchen is focused on making sure he has plenty to eat without becoming discouraged.  This can be particularly hard when it comes to snacks (you can only be excited about so many cheese sticks!)  Today I found a recipe just too good not to share.  Even if you are not on a low carb diet this snack will melt in your mouth and make you feel wonderfully indulgent!  It tastes just like my Grandmother's Lemon Meringue Pie (minus the meringue and flaky crust, of course)! I just can't wait to try out other Jello flavors in this recipe. I bet the lime will taste a lot like a yummy summer lime pie! 

My little man was so happy to have something sweet that works perfectly in his diet and who doesn't love jigglers, especially when they are in fun Easter shapes?

Luscious Low Carb Creamy Lemon Jello Jigglers

2- 3 ounce packs of sugar free lemon Jello
1 cup boiling water
5 ounces heaving whipping cream

Spray a pan* or Jiggler mold with non stick baking spray. Dissolve Jello in boiling water and then add heavy whipping cream and mix well.  Pour into prepared mold/pan and place in refrigerate for approximately 3 hours until set.  Pop out on a plate and enjoy!

Store in fridge.

*If you don't have a mold pour into a small baking or cake pan and when set cut into squares for Jello bites!  These are good in a zippy bag for snacks.

This is not a Jello ad (although, I wouldn't feel bad at all if Jello decided to pay me....uhm...) but I just happen to use Jello and my new Spring Jello Mold Kit to make this.  I am sure any brand of sugar free would work just as well.
