If you turn the daily allowance of water (flavoured) into jelly and eat it throughout the day, is that cheating? Is it acceptable? I know we can use gelatin, so am wondering as a lot of us hate drinking such a vast amount of water.
the water used in the jelly is indeed counted as ur daily required limit of fluid intake, much the same as some people add extra water to the shakes/soups to increase the fluids.
i always had the trifle each day so i knew i was getting that extra water each day.... ok yeah and i was also getting a gorgeous treat which kinda helped. lol
if u follow this link below it will show u how to make the jelly and trifle. it is pure heaven in a dish and in my opinion the jelly is much better than the sugar free jellies on the market .
also some pics of the trifle on the link below
my cdc told me yesterday that i shouldnt make the trifle as the only gelatine product we should use was the mix a mousse. i bought some and made a strawberry mousse which was lush but i ended up being sick a few hours later. im going to try the jelly now and if im sick from that then no more mix a mousse for me
to make the jelly i use 450mls cold water in a bowl, then melt one sachet of supercook gelatine in 50 mls boiling water in a cup and once thoroughly dissolved add to the cold water, add 1 teaspoon of CD orange or berry water flavouring and then add a few drops of food colouring, allow to set in the fridge for about 2 hours.
