These are my favorite Mother’s Day treat, in case anyone in my house is reading this!

Jello is one of my favorite ingredients for keto desserts.

Its low in carbs, calories, and sugar.

Regular Jell-O contains only about 1 gram of carbs per serving, and there are also sugar-free versions available that contain zero carbs. We use sugar-free of course!

This makes it a great option for satisfying a sweet craving without consuming too many carbs or calories. Another delicious option is this keto strawberry pretzel salad recipe! OMG!!

Keto Cheesecake Recipes:

Jello is versatile and can be combined with other low-carb ingredients to create a variety of delicious keto-friendly desserts.

I loved mixing jello with cream cheese long before I knew what the keto diet was because the two ingredients together taste a-freaking-mazing!

Keto Strawberry Jello Cheesecake Recipe Notes:

You can use other flavors of jello if you want to get creative. In the sugar-free variety you can use Strawberry, Black Cherry, Lime, Lemon, Cherry, Peach, Raspberry & Orange.

If you don’t want to pair this recipe with strawberries you can also use blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, or other higher carb fruits (use sparingly).

Tips For Using Jell-O In Recipes:

Follow the instructions: Always follow the instructions on the Jell-O package to ensure that the recipe sets correctly.

Use the right amount of liquid: Be sure to use the right amount of liquid called for in the recipe, as too much or too little liquid can affect the texture and consistency of the Jell-O.

Chill before adding mix-ins: If you plan to add fruit or other mix-ins to your Jell-O, chill the Jell-O until it is partially set before adding them. This will help the mix-ins to stay suspended in the Jell-O instead of sinking to the bottom.

Add mix-ins evenly: When adding mix-ins, distribute them evenly throughout the Jell-O to ensure that each bite has a similar amount of flavor and texture.

Use sugar-free Jell-O: If you are following a low-carb or keto diet, consider using sugar-free Jell-O to keep the carb count low.

Experiment with flavors: Jell-O comes in a variety of flavors, so don’t be afraid to experiment with different combinations and mix-ins to create your own unique recipes.

Notes

Tips:

  1. Use high-quality ingredients: When making a cheesecake, the quality of the ingredients can make a big difference in the final product. Use high-quality cream cheese, sour cream, and heavy cream for the best results.
  2. Use almond flour for the crust: Almond flour is a great low-carb alternative to traditional flour and makes a delicious crust for these bars.
  3. Don't skip the gelatin: Gelatin helps to set the cheesecake filling and gives it a firmer texture. Make sure to dissolve the gelatin completely in hot water before adding it to the filling.
  4. Use fresh strawberries: Fresh strawberries will give your cheesecake bars the best flavor and texture. If you don't have fresh strawberries, you can use frozen ones, but be sure to thaw them thoroughly and pat them dry before using them.
  5. Chill the bars before serving: After the cheesecake bars have been set, chill them in the refrigerator for at least 2-3 hours (or overnight) before serving. This will help the bars firm up and make them easier to slice.
  6. Add toppings: Keto-friendly toppings such as whipped cream, sliced almonds, or more strawberries can add flavor and texture to your cheesecake bars.
  7. Store the bars properly: Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. You can also freeze the bars for up to 3 months.
