This simple dessert not just healthy but it is sugar free and delicious, it takes few minutes to prepare and I love it.

Perfect dessert when you are on a diet or a healthy alternative when wanting something sweet, but if you are feeling more than just apples, this would be a delicious treat with vanilla ice cream.

Few weeks ago, I bought two gallons of ice cream, one was cookies and cream, and the other one was sugar free Vanilla ice cream.

The cookies and cream was gone in few days, few days you ask! Yes, as my son puts it, “it’s his duty to finish it in few days otherwise why did I buy it?!

The sugar free vanilla was setting in the freezer because gods forbid he eats a healthier version or sugar free ice cream!!

I had a box of cream filled cookies so I chopped them and made my own version of the cookies and cream ice cream in no time at all.

I gave him a taste and all of the sudden the ice cream is delicious and no one to touch it…

It is really easy to dress up a simple ice cream with any flavors or fruits you have on hand.

Who does not love Jello, little kids and big kids loves it.

I created this recipe for the fact we could not eat store bought Jello, because it contained pork gelatin, and for a long time I searched the internet for the alternative Halal / Kosher key ingredient to create it.

When I found beef gelatin few years back I was in haven and I been making homemade Jello ever since.

Fruit could be added to the Jello before refrigerating(I use sugar free caned fruit)and top with homemade whip cream before serving.

I always use plastic cups when I am serving this delicious treat to the little kiddos. Easy to handle and no one breaks my nice glassware.

.8 cups boiling water

.3 packets Kool-Aid any flavor, I used Cherry

.2 1/2 cups of Sugar Substitutes

.1/2 cups beef gelatin

Line up baking sheet with 12, 20oz plastic cups, set aside.

In a large heatproof bowl, add Kool-aid, sugar substitutes and beef gelatin.

Carefully pour the boiling water while whisking, keep whisking until everything dissolved and no lumps.

By using a small gravy ladle, carefully fill the plastic cups all the way.
Refrigerate overnight.Enjoy!
