Low Carb Strawberry Cream Pie Dessert in a Jar
Just because a dessert is sugar free and low carb doesn't mean it can't be a feast for the eyes! This Valentine's Day, have a special treat without all of the extra sugar. This Low Carb Strawberry Cream Pie recipe is such a treat and who doesn't love a dessert in a jar?
I love a pretty dessert bar, so I pulled this one together with a ceramic white tray, red wood garland beads, a pink bowl, my favorite hobnail milk glass vase, and all the pretty camellias from my yard.
Bonus: I dipped the strawberries in Lily's White Chocolate Baking Chips. Lily's is a stevia sweetened, no sugar added baking alternative and tastes wonderful!
Sugar-Free Strawberry Cream Pie Dessert in a Jar
8 oz. cream cheese
1/2 cup water
one small pack of sugar free strawberry gelatin
1/2 cup Swerve Confectioners
Voortman's sugar-free Almonette cookies
3 Tbsp butter
sugar free whipped cream
Combine water with strawberry gelatin and Swerve Confectioners in a sauce pan and stir to dissolve. Bring to a boil over medium heat.
Pour gelatin over softened cream cheese and mix to combine. You may have to let it set up in the refrigerator for a few minutes first. Use a mixer.
Fold in half of the container of sugar free whipped cream.
For the crust: Put the softened butter in a food processer with about 3/4 of the package of Almonette cookies and combine.
Assemble your mason jars by adding a layer of the cookie mixture on the bottom, a layer of the gelatin mixture, then top with whipped cream and garnish with a strawberry. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
Makes 8-10 servings in half pint jars.
***To further cut carbs, you can do an almond flour crust instead of the cookie crust, or make it crustless.
