Ingredients

  • 10 ounces frozen strawberries (no-sugar added, defrosted)
  • 2 teaspoon lemon juice (freshly squeezed)
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon powdered gelatin (unflavored)
  • 3 tablespoons granulated stevia erythritol blend (Pyure-2X sweeter than sugar)
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream

Instructions

  1. Add 1/4 cup cold water to a small saucepan. Sprinkle the powdered gelatin over the water and allow to "bloom" for 5 minutes.

  3. Once the gelatin has bloomed, add the sweetener to the saucepan. Heat the mixture gently while stirring frequently until gelatin and sweetener has dissolved. While blender is going at its slowest setting, stream the gelatin mixture into the strawberries through the small opening in the blender lid.

  4. Transfer strawberry mixture to a large mixing bowl. Refrigerate for a few minutes while whipping the cream.
