    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.

    oh got you ... silly me!!! It was your question about calories that threw me. Sounds like you have nothing to worry about re. calories then.

    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
