    I normally use the sugar free jelly and make it up with half boiling water and then my milk allowance. I think it is alot nicer. I don't think is so nice with the raspberry flavour but like it with everything else. I sometimes have it with frozen vanilla mullerlight.

    I like to make up a SF lime jelly with enough water so it dissolves and then top the rest up with diet cola. It makes a change from having fruity jellies all the time and tastes like the citrus coke flavour!

    I freeze my muller light... and find when I want something sweet in the evening I get one out and start digging... Takes me ages to eat it...kills time.. makes me think I have been eating for ages .... and kills the sweet craving!

    Make your own jelly...

    1 pkt Gelatine
    any fruit
    fromage frais or fromage blanc (Quark) or anything that is 0%
    Water
    colouring
    Canderel


    Mix gelatin with boiled water say 1/4 pint to dissolve.
    Add FF or FB to make up to 1 pint.
    Chop fruit... don't liquidise.....I sometimes now put some in and leave some to dress the top.
    Add some flavouring and colouring... Lemon juice is wonderful
    Some canderel
    Mix it all well and pour into glasses and leave in fridge to set.

    For a topping....

    Add some canderel to FF or FB and mix add to the top of your jelly and sprinkle with some more fruit!

    Looks and tastes wonderful... free on all days...Just don't use avacado or any fruit that has syns lol.

    I've found it can go frothy sometimes depending on the brand of cola...the froth should settle down though. If you still have trouble it helps to pour your cola into a separate jug first then slowly add it to the jelly mix rather than pour it straight from the bottle. It's better if the cola has already been open for a day or two aswell although I can and do make it with a newly opened bottle...hope this helps!
