"Broken Glass Jello" Goes Sugarfree

This is one of those classic Jello recipes from the 60s. While I do admit it has a ton of eye appeal, the recipe needed some fixing. It was not too hard to adapt to low carb. My main problem was finding blue Jello. My stores only seemed to have that in the sugary version. I ended up with raspberry, lime and peach. Unfortunately, most of the choices were red, and that would not have been as pretty. Even without the blue, this makes a tasty light dessert that is sure to please company or guests at a potluck. It is not hard, just a bit time consuming waiting for gelatin to set.

Broken Glass Jello

3 packages sugarfree gelatin
1 package unflavored gelatin
3/4 cup cream or half and half
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup vanilla DaVinci syrup

Prepare flavored gelatin as directed on package. Chill for several hours. Cut into squares. Place Jello cubes into an 11 3/4 x 7 1/2" casserole dish.(or the equivalent) Be sure to mix the colored cubes for the best effect. Keep cold. Soften unflavored gelatin by sprinkling it lightly over 1/4 cup water. Let sit for 5 minutes while you bring the cream and syrup mixture to a light boil. Combine gelatin and cream. Stir until dissolved. Chill this mixture until it is cool to the touch, but not gelled. Pour the creamy gelatin over the cubes. Chill several hours or overnight. Cut into squares to serve.
Serves 12-16
