Low Carb Black Cherry Jello Parfait Pushups


I made these cute Low Carb Black Cherry Jello Parfait Pushups for dessert for The Oscars.  They looked so cute and were absolutely delisious and sugar free to top it off.  All things that I love in a dessert.

Here is this super easy recipe for

Low Carb Black Cherry Jello Parfait Pushups

Ingredients:

1 box Jello Sugar Free Black Cherry Jello
2 cups water
1 pint cup heavy whipping cream
1/4 cup Stevia in the raw or splenda
1 tsp vanilla
6 Wilton plastic pushup containers
1 mini muffin pan 36 holes

Directions

Boil 1 cup water.

Put the Jello in a bowl and add the 1 cup boiling water.  Stir well, until the Jello has dissolved.

Then add 1 cup cold water and stir well.

Pour the Jello in a measuring cup and fill each muffin cup with Jello.

Put the muffin pan in the refrigerator for several hours, until the Jello is set.

In the mean time, make the Fresh Whipped Cream.
You can follow the link to the post, but I also copied and pasted it below for your convenience.

Now once the Jello has set remove it from the muffin cups.  I slid a knife around the edges and was able to slide them out onto a try.


Put your whipped cream in a ziploc bag or a pastry bag and cut the tip.

Set your pushups on their lids (I bought Wilton Push Up holders) and put I Jello cup into each pushup container.


Next, squeeze some of your whipped cream on top of each Jello cup.

Layer this way with Jello and whipped cream ending with whipped cream on the top.


Put the lids on and serve when you are ready.

Makes 6 Jello Pushup Parfaits  (you will have 6 jello cups left over unless you buy additional pushup holders.)

I hope that you love these Low Carb Black Cherry Jello Parfaits as much as we did.  They were so good.  I always love hearing from you.  The whipped cream recipe will follow this.

Enjoy!!!

Fresh Whipped Cream

Ingredients:

1 pt. whipping cream
1/4 cup powdered sugar (confectioners) or Splenda or Stevia in the Raw
1 tsp vanilla

Directions:

Pour whipping cream into a medium to large sized bowl.

Beat the cream with an electric mixer, about 3 to 4 minutes, until it starts to become firm.

Then add the powdered sugar and continue beating.



Once the powdered sugar is mixed in add the vanilla. 


Continue beating with electric mixer until your whipped cream is firm, but smooth.  About another minute or two.


You don't want to over beat it because it will turn to butter.
