This is probably one of my most favorite low carb desserts. Even better, it is so easy to make.
1 Small Box of Orange Sugar Free Jello
1 Cup Boiling Water
1 Package of Neufchâtel Cheese*
Whipped Cream (optional)
Allow the Neufchâtel cheese to soften.
In a mixing bowl, combine the boiling water and the jello packet - stir well, you want to make sure you dissolve all of the gelatin. Once it is thoroughly dissolved, add the softened cheese and blend with a hand mixer until well incorporated. I like to leave mine a tiny bit lumpy because I like little pockets of cheese in my mousse.
Refrigerate until set - about 3 or 4 hours
Just before serving, top with whipped cream!
If you serve them in stemware this makes a lovely dessert for company!
* Philadelphia brand Neufchâtel Cheese has slightly less carbohydrates than Cream Cheese but this can also be made with cream cheese for a slightly higher carb count
Carb Count: 8g of Net Carbs for the entire recipe (not including the optional whipped cream)
Servings: I got four of those small stemware glasses from one batch so I would say about 2g/serving
