Judy’s Jello Mousse

Posted by Solitary Dancer on May 18, 2006

Here's what Judy has to say about her Jello Invention

Judy's Jello Mousse

This must be well known, but I thought I would post my reinvention for those who haven't thought of it or found a recipe.

I wanted to doctor up simple no sugar jello. When we could eat sugar, I used to make gelatin dishes with fruit juice, gelatin, and something like whipped cream. So here's my super easy low carb version:

Strawberry Jello Mousse

1 package sugar free jello (like strawberry)
2 cups water
8 oz cream cheese

Bring 1 cup of water to boil in microwave. Pour boiling water in blender and add jello packet contents. Warm 8 oz of cream cheese in microwave and add to blender. Add 1 additional cup water and blend.
Pour into container and cool.

Serve as is or with strawberries or other berries.

I call it a mousse because it came out fairly light, almost fluffy. I searched for jello and cream cheese and found a similar recipe which called for cutting down on the water in the jello to 1 1/2 cups total,
but we found it a bit stiff. We like the lighter and fluffier texture of the mixture with the full complement of water plus 8 oz cream cheese. If this isn't sweet enough for your taste, add a couple of packets of artificial sweetener to the mixture.
