This recipe for Gluten Free Keto Strawberry Jello Cream Pie is the perfect summertime dessert. And each slice has just 4g net carbs.
"Give in! Give in! Give in to the taste!" Sugar-Free Jello commercial
Today I'm going to share a recipe for Keto Strawberry Jello Cream Pie, but first I want to show you something funny. It's a commercial for Sugar-Free Jello from back in the day. This was back when Sugar Free Jello started using this brand new sweetener called NutraSweet.
This lead to a renewed interest in Jello, and some extremely happy aerobic dancers.
But you have to admit, the old Jello commercials make some good points.
Jello really is one of the easiest desserts you can make. And luckily for us, Sugar-Free Jello has just 5 calories and zero carbs per serving, so it's low carb and Keto compliant to boot. And did I mention that it's Gluten-Free?
Yep, Sugar-Free Jello is gluten-free as well.
This recipe is based on a classic easy Jello Pie that uses a pre-made graham cracker crust and a mixture of Jello and Cool Whip.
But when you are doing low carb, almost nothing is this simple. Both Cool Whip and ready-made crusts are full of sugar and therefore off limits. So for this low carb Jello cream pie, I used a great faux graham cracker crust from the gnom-gnom blog.
And I used Jello because it's a quick way to get a robust Strawberry flavored filling.
First, you make the low carb graham cracker crust.
Then you fill it with a mixture of Jello, cream cheese, heavy whipping cream and erythritol and top it with whipped cream.
And soon you'll have a slice of Keto Strawberry Cream Pie with only 4g net carbs.
So just give in, give in, give in to the taste!Print

½ cup water

Sounds great although I would use grass-fed bovine gelatin with a few extra strawberries for flavor instead of using the boxed Jello mixture.
Emily Krill says
Sure, that would definitely be healthier. Although there is a brand of Jello called Gram Zero that's sweetened with stevia. https://amzn.to/3oWEi1R
Just made this and it was awesome! Used raspberry Jello and I can't wait to try it with other Jello flavors! The only question I have, when I poured the dissolved gelatin and water into the whipped cream, it hardened and there were little rubbery pieces of gelatin throughout the finished pie. Maybe I should have added it while the mixer was running? Any thoughts? It really is a very yummy pie!! Thank you!!
Glad you like the pie. Try straining the Jello liquid through a sieve before mixing it with the cream cheese.
This looks amazing! But I’m confused about the carb count. The intro says 4g per slice but the nutritional info says 6g. Which is it?
Thanks! The difference you see is the difference between "carbs" and "net carbs". (The intro says "net carbs".) You get the net carb amount by subtracting the fiber from the total carb amount. That's because the body doesn't digest it and convert the fiber into glucose. It's standard practice to go by net carbs when you are calculating the amount of carbs you want to eat each day on a low carb or Keto diet.
Here's some more info on calculating net carbs from the Kitchn: https://www.thekitchn.com/this-is-the-most-important-detail-about-carbs-for-the-keto-diet-253955

You came up with a keto graham cracker pie crust? I think I love you!!! This recipe sounds perfect - and I guess nobody would know it's secretly good for you!
I wish I could claim credit, but the graham cracker crust came from Paola at gnom-gnom. She is quite a good recipe maker.
