    I poured 1 pint of hot water in a jug, sprinkled on the gelatine, whizzed it, added the flavouring, whizzed it, added the red colouring, whizzed it again and split it between 2 tumblers.

    Now in the fridge, i hope they turn out ok, i guess this may be trial and error!

    Does it sound like i done it right?

    sounds pretty good unreal.
    for future reference though, it sets quicker if u use 450 mls very cold water in a bowl, then a half a cup (50mls) boiling water with the gelatine sprinkled in. stir til dissolved then pour into the cold water, add the flavouring and food colouring ( no need to whizz at all, just stir with a spoon) and it will set within 1-2 hours.

    So its totally ok to eat - I feel like its too good to be true - here's a picture of the final thing!

    I used a teaspoon of the flavouring, a sachet of the gelatine, water and also red food colouring and its just like real jelly.

    Surely this is wrong!!!!!!

    Thats what I want to know.

    I guess we shouldnt have it every day as it may effect weight loss a teeny bit but at the weekends this will be a godsend! Saturday night with jelly! Wicked!!!!

    told ya it is yummy unreal :D.
    ive been having a jelly everyday for the last 8 weeks or so (i usually turn it into a chocolate tetra trifle with a choc tetra mousse on top.
    the jelly has a grand total of 42 calories for the whole thing (12 cals for the flavouring and 30 cals for gelatine) and contains 0.6g carbs (flavouring only)
    SO ENJOY. :D

    Not sure if i am too happy with this though as extra calories could surely mean less weight loss? I know its only 42 but surely these make a difference?

    it doesnt make any difference to my weight loss and the fact that ur adding an extra half a litre of water having it is a good thing.
    considering it takes 3500 calories to affect ur weightloss by a pound of fat u would have to eat 84 jellies in a week to affect ur weightloss by 1lb.
    seriously, dont worry, its not worth even considering hun, just enjoy it

    correct kitteh, thats the biggest benefit, and u dont have to blitz it with a blender either, just dissolve in half cup of boiling water and stir into 450 mls cold water, hey presto, ' normal nonfrothy' jelly. lol
