Nummy Nectarine Jello: A 4 Ingredient Low Carb Dessert

Nummy Nectarine Jello. Clean, low carb and perfect for the Banting Diet. This recipe only requires 4 ingredients.

I like jello. It’s an easy dessert and is especially satisfying in the summer topped with a little homemade whipped cream.

This recipe isn’t quite as simple as my 2 Ingredient Watermelon Jello. However, it’s still straightforward and simple. It’s also a great way of making use of this bountiful fruit. Right now both nectarines and peaches are dirt cheap at both the stores and farmers markets.

As with the watermelon jello, this one doesn’t come out quite a jiggly as store bought jello. That’s fine. I like how it tastes and I enjoy the texture. I also didn’t add any sugar– fake or otherwise– because I believe the fruit is sweet enough. If you’ve just started on a low carb diet or are just starting to cut back on your sugar intake, I encourage you to try this recipe without adding any sugar. After a couple weeks without sugar of any kind, your taste buds will adjust. Be patient. Trust me. I used to constantly crave sweets and now I don’t.

Ingredients:

  • 6 nectarines
  • A pinch of salt
  • Water as needed
  • 1 gelatine packet

Directions:

  1. Place a pot over medium heat and add a small amount of water– just enough to cover the bottom. This will help keep the fruit from sticking to the bottom.
  2. Slice the nectarines and add them to the pot.
  3. Add a pinch of salt and stir. The salt will help bring out the natural sugars of the nectarine.

    Place the fruit in a pot with some water.

  4. As they cook, mash the nectarines with either a potato masher or whisk to help the fruit break down.

  5. After the fruit has broken down, strain in into a bowl. This is to get rid of the pulp and skin. Using a spoon, push on the pulp to help push out the liquid.

    This is how the fruit looks when you strain it.

  6. Return the strained liquid to the pot. Place the pot over medium heat and add the gelatine packet. Stir frequently. Do not boil.
  7. Once the liquid is hot, but not at a boil, pour it into a container and place in the fridge overnight.

    Serve with a little homemade whipped cream and enjoy.
