KETO JELLO PRETZEL SALAD 

I really wanted to call this Keto Jello Pretzel Salad with a salty crust but reality is that there are no pretzels in this dessert.

If you’ve had the classic dessert I’m describing the taste will be familiar to you. A crunchy crust with a layer of cream cheese and topped with a layer of sugar-free Jello.

My hubby has a way of seeing whatever I’m making and developing a Keto version of it. This dessert honestly tastes the most non-Keto of all the things I’ve eaten. He made it for our annual Appetizer Wednesday and it was gone quickly!

Keto Jello Pretzel Salad

Keto Jello Pretzel Salad - a low-carb version of the sweet dessert jello pretzel salad with a salty crunchy crust. With a sweet cream cheese layer and sugar-free jello, this is delicious!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups Keto cereal (we use Catalina Crunch honey graham)
  • 6 tablespoons salted butter, melted
  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup no-carb sweetener (we use Monkfruit)
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 (.6 ounce) package sugar-free strawberry jello
  • 1 1/2 cups frozen strawberries, chopped

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

    In a food processor, pulse the cereal and butter into coarsely ground crumbs. Press into a 9x9 pan. Bake for 10 minutes. Let cool.

  2. In a medium bowl, beat the cream cheese and sugar together. In a separate bowl, whip the cream at a high speed for 2-4 minutes or until soft peaks form. Fold cream into the cream cheese mixture. Spread on top of the crust making sure to go to the edges to create a seal.

  3. In a medium bowl, add the Jello. Add two cups of boiling hot water to the Jello stirring to dissolve. Add 1 1/2 cups cold water, 1 cup ice, and frozen strawberries Stir until combined and let set up in the fridge for just a few minutes (3-5 minutes). Let it set up enough so it's not super liquidy but the final setting up stage will be on top of the cream cheese layer. Pour the Jello over the cream cheese layer and chill in the fridge until serving.
