Low Carbohydrate Recipe
For Coffee Jelly, flavor plain gelatin with liquid sweetener, espresso and whipping cream. Garnish with more whipped cream if you like and a coffee bean or two.
2 tablespoons water
2-1/2 teaspoons gelatin
1-1/2 cups water
1-1/2 teaspoons liquid sweetener
1 tablespoon Splenda
1/2 cup brewed espresso
1/2 cup whipping cream
Optional Garnish: Whipped cream/Coffee beans
Place the 2 tablespoons water in a small bowl and sprinkle the gelatin over the surface. Let stand until the gelatin softens.
Heat 1/2 cup of the 1-1/2 cups water in a small saucepan. Do not let it boil. Add the gelatin and stir until it dissolves. Add the sweetener, Splenda, remaining water and espresso. Stir well.
Measure out 3/4 cup of the espresso mixture into a small bowl. Add the cream to the remaining mixture. Stir well and pour into 4 small dessert dishes. Place both mixtures into the fridge to chill for at least 4 hours.
Remove the plain jelly from the bowl and cut into 1/2-inch cubes and pile onto the jelly in the dishes. Garnish with more whipped cream if you like and a coffee bean or two.
