Desserts Gluten-Free (GF) Keto Low-Iron Recipes Snacks Vegetarian
Sea Glass Jello (Keto, GF, Low-Iron, Vegetarian)
July 27, 2020

Here’s a really cool looking treat that I found not too long ago, Sea Glass Jello. It’s a fun and funky treat that was really easy to make low-carb once I found a sugar-free sweetened condensed milk substitute.

Heads up, this recipe does call for sugar-free Jell-O, which is sweetened with aspartame, which I don’t advocate eating on a regular basis. So, if you can’t handle this sweetener or choose not to include it in your diet, you can easily use plain gelatin and color it with your choice of coloring agent. You can definitely use food coloring, but you can also use fruit and veggie juices to naturally color the gelatin to get the sea glass jello effect.

Unfortunately, I haven’t figured out how to make sweetened condensed milk that is both sugar-free and dairy-free. One of these days I’ll try and make one of these dairy-free sweetened condensed milk recipes with a sugar substitute. I’m not sure if it’ll set up as it does with sugar the same way with an alternative sweetener like erythritol or stevia. So, for now, this is not a dairy-free recipe. One day, maybe I’ll experiment.

If you need a dairy-free dessert, check out my chocolate walnut fat-bomb ice cream!
