Keto Homemade Strawberry Jello


Did you know that gelatin, the main ingredient in jello, is actually good for you?   Take away all the sugar and preservatives in store bought-jello and you have yourself a pretty healthy dessert. 

Gelatin in its purest form is rich in protein and a great source of collagen which is known to improve the skin, nail and hair growth.  It has also been shown to help with joint health and brain function by improving memory and attention.

If losing weight is your goal, then it is also important to mention that gelatin may aid in weight loss because it is basically carb-free and has been shown to reduce appetite and increase feelings of fullness.

Now for all the reasons above, I mean why not eat more Jello? Am I right? This is why I decided to make a keto strawberry jello using real strawberries that are cooked down and infused into the gelatin for that real strawberry flavor.  None of that artificial stuff!

I make a batch every few days and store it in my fridge.  When I feel like having something sweet I will cut a block and eat it straight. To take it to the next level, you could add some whipped cream on top and you have yourself a delicious healthy low-carb/keto dessert!  Enjoy!
