Gestational Diabetes Friendly Cheesecake Jelly Pots

Finding dessert that is gestational diabetes friendly can be rather difficult.  I find that I do ok with normal ice cream, but it has to be small portions. And a lot of people find that icecream in any capacity gives them spikes.  So in preparation for making a nice birthday dinner for me, I asked in a gestational diabetes group if anyone had any favorite treat recipes.  I got this amazing dessert recipe that I have permission to share.  It is seriously amazing.  It has very few carbs in it for the entire thing. Less than 10 grams of carbs for the entire dish, this means each serving is basically carb free. The main factor in the number of carbs is the cream cheese that you use.  If you want to make it into a carb snack you can add a biscuit or two with it depending on your biscuits.  


1 package of cream cheese room temperature

1/3 a cup of thickened cream (also known as heavy cream or whipping cream)

1 packet of flavored Jelly Lite (flavored Sugarfree Jello) mixed with 250 ml or 1 cup of boiling water


Mix all ingredients together in a mixer or with a whisk by hand. 

Pour into ramekins or lined muffin tins. 

Chill until firm

Serve with biscuits or cookies of choice.

It makes 12 3/4 full cupcake servings. 

If made in cupcake tins, it is the perfect size to flip out on top of a digestive biscuit.

This is such a wonderful recipe! It is very quick and easy to make.  I made it by hand and probably spent less than 5 minutes of hands-on work before chilling it.  My favorite flavor is using Mango Jelly Lite, but any flavor would work. Pick your favorite! It is a great way to get a sweet treat without having to worry about carb serves or anything.  Let me know in the comments if you have a favorite gestational diabetes dessert that you have found!
