Ready in 5 hours
This diabetic dessert is simple to do, refreshing, and low carb. It also looks great on the plate.
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.
tinnyc2000 8m agoVery sweet and an odd texture. Like jelly applesauce vs jello.... Strange
kristajamison 2y agoIt'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.

Buddercup 5y agoMy diabetic dinner guest absolutely loved this. He said, "Now this recipe is a keeper!"
hanan@home 9y agoI 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
