Ready in 5 hours

This diabetic dessert is simple to do, refreshing, and low carb. It also looks great on the plate.


1 package Sugar-free Jello; - Your favorite flavor
1 cup Water; - Boiling
2 teaspoons Splenda; - to taste
1 cup Unsweetened Applesauce; - chilled

Original recipe makes 4



Dissolve the Jello in one cup of very hot water. Stir gently for at least 2 minutes to assure it is completely dissolved. Add the Splenda during this process. When completely dissolved add the applesauce, mix well and place in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours until it's completely set.

This can be cut in cubes, spooned out, or dished up in creative ways. I used a melon baller to make small spheres which I served with a small chunk of fresh pineapple. It also goes well with low-cal yogurt in a contrasting flavor.

Each (app 1/2 cup) serving of this (without the pineapple) contains an estimated:

Cals: 42, FatCals: 0, TotFat: 0g

SatFat: 0g, PolyFat: 0g, MonoFat: 0g

Chol: 0mg, Na: 63mg, K: 46mg

TotCarbs: 7g, Fiber: 1g, Sugars: 0g

NetCarbs: 6g, Protein: 1g


I served this once with fresh pineapple (sided with a bit of blackberry brandy) and again with lo-cal raspberry yogurt. It was delicious both times.

Very sweet and an odd texture. Like jelly applesauce vs jello.... Strange

It's setting in the refrigerator right now, so I haven't tried it yet but I've had jellos made with applesauce before so I have good hopes. However, I used strawberry jello, doubled the serving, and added cut strawberries inside...so we'll see how it goes at the luncheon tomorrow and if people eat it up or not. :) I'll come back tomorrow afterward and give a follow-up review, lol.

I served this to 6 ten year old boys as an afterschool snack. Each had a condiment size dish of jello and on the center of the table I placed 6 thick slices of fresh pineapple on a plastic cutting board with one boyscout knife. All enjoyed the jello, but the carving of the pineapple took on many differrent shapes. A big and creative hit for the guys! We had stick figures, shapes, moon
