    Hello

    Silly question time again...

    Do I make jelly with mix a mousse? or do I need to buy different glycerine? Sorry just got my water flavours from my CDC and want to make trifle!!!!!

    Can someone give me a good jelly recipe - proportion wise I mean :)

    I use...

    100 mls boiling water
    1 sachet Supercook Glycerine
    1 tsp water flavouring
    Few drops colouring
    400 mls cold water


    Pour the boiling water into a bowl which will hold 500ml, then pour in the glycerine a bit at a time - wait til the first bit dissolves til you put the second bit in, etc.
    Add the flavouring and colouring and mix well.
    Add the cold water and leave in the fridge to set.


    I'm addicted to Summer Berry jelly at the moment :p

    Is it supposed to look like an explosion at a foam making factory, or have I even managed to cock Jelly up?

    Heh.

    If you use gelatine instead, it takes about 2 hours-ish to set.

    Is this eaten instead of a shake pack? Also is it "safe" to eat and wont kick you out of ketosis??

    Do you only use the water flavourings for flavour??

    Thanks

    No this is eaten as well as your shake packs, as long as you dont use more than 2 scoops of Mix a mouse a day you should stay in Ketosis.

    Yeah your use the water flavourings from your CDC

    Does gelatine have any calorific value or carbs? I.e. if on LL I bought some gelatine and made that jelly as above, will it kick me out of ketosis or affect weight loss at all? We don't have that mix-a-mousse stuff that you have. And I know they're similar diets but I just want to be sure.

    Wouldn't it be easier just to buy some sugar-free Jello?
