Diet jelly is prepared simply and quickly, but calories contain very few. 100 grams of this diet dessert contains 45−55 calories. But this, of course, depends on the products used. For comparison, the calorie content of ordinary jelly from a bag is about 150 calories, but it also contains a solid dose of preservatives and sugar. Of course, adhering to proper nutrition, it is best to give preference to diet jelly, prepared with your own hands.

What to cook diet jelly desserts from?

There are many diet jelly recipes that can be included in the diet menu. All contain low-calorie ingredients. Here are the most popular examples of healthy jelly base:

Fruits and berries. Here, give preference to low-calorie fruits – apples, oranges, pears. Any berries are ideal for making this dessert – strawberries, cherries, raspberries.

Vegetables. Surprisingly, even from vegetables, you can make a real diet dessert. The leader in this group is pumpkin and beetroot! And due to the sweetness of these vegetables, you can even refuse to add sugar or a sweetener!

Kefir or ryazhenka. Surprisingly, even from these fermented milk products, you can cook real dietary jelly. The main thing is to decide which product you will use in the recipe.

Milk. Fans of delicate dairy desserts should definitely try milk-based jelly.

Cottage cheese. What is a diet dessert without adding cottage cheese? One of the most common recipes for jelly is a cottage cheese recipe. This is not only ideal for losing weight but also a great way to add more protein to your diet!

So, if you like delicious desserts, but do not want to get better, then try the jelly recipe with stevia. This natural sweetener is great for making diet desserts.

200 grams of pumpkin. 100 grams of this product contains only 30 calories but at the same time a lot of nutrients, as well as a lot of fiber. We clean the pumpkin, cut it into slices and bake. Then beat in a blender.

70 ml of milk. You can use plain skim milk or any vegetable. Oat milk goes well with pumpkin.

1 teaspoon of gelatin. As a thickener, we will use gelatin.

Stevia. According to your taste. But remember that this sweetener is really very sweet, so it’s important not to add too much.

Any spices. You can use cinnamon or ground ginger.

First, fill the gelatin with milk and let it swell a little. Then put on the stove and, not bringing to a boil, wait until it is completely dissolved. The resulting mixture is mixed with pumpkin puree, add spices to taste, sweetener, and whisk everything in a blender. Pour the jelly into the mold and send it to the refrigerator for several hours.

Curd diet jelly

This dessert can be safely included in your diet, even for dinner, because it contains very little fat and carbohydrates.

7 grams of gelatin. This is about a teaspoon with a slide!

50 ml of water. In it, we will dissolve gelatin.
