Yelatin is a repost from 2008. I was hoping it get it up before Easter, but it just didn’t happen.
I remade it for this Easter so that I would have some new photos. However, I don’t have the jello mold any longer, so I just used a casserole dish, and getting it out was a little hairy, as you can tell from my photos.
It stuck a little when I flipped it, but it came out great otherwise! We had fun eating it yesterday.
Here’s the original Yelatin post and photo from March 2008…
Or as the husband likes to call it, jell-ogurt.
I came up with the idea for a St. Patty’s day treat and now I’m obsessed. Having a houseful of family for Easter weekend gave me the perfect opportunity to try the new dessert on others over the age of 2 (the toddler is already a fan). Well, it was a hit! My mom especially liked it, calling it a very refreshing dessert, great for a BBQ or summer party.
I decided to use a traditional jell-o mold and make 3 batches in 3 different flavors. The result was a very festive 3 layer refreshing dessert. Topped with fresh berries and a bit of light whip cream it’s just perfect!
The following recipe and nutritional information is for 1 batch of yelatin yielding 4 – ½ cup servings but you can, of course, get creative and festive with multiple boxes and flavors!
Well, I’m happy to say that 2-year-old still loves Yelatin even at fourteen. His little brother wasn’t a fan, but he doesn’t like plain jello either, so he’s no help.
Here’s the Yelatin recipe. I’m glad I dug this one up. It’s good, cheesy fun, and much lighter than the chocolate chip cookies I’ve been making in quarantine.
Want more protein in your yelatin try my Protein Jello where I add whey.
Yield 4 servings
Yelatin is gelatin with a twist. Only 45 calories a serving and super fun to make and eat.
- .3oz sugar free gelatin dessert (like jello) – any flavor
- 1 cup (8oz) hot water
- 1 cup (227g) fat free plain yogurt
Dissolve the gelatin mix in the boiling water. Whisk in the yogurt. Refrigerate for about 2 hours until set.
- As you can see, I like making 3 batches and stacking them. All you need to do is wait for each later to set before adding the next.
- You can use regular sugar jello as well. I'm not the biggest fan of artificial sweeteners but the goal here was a light dessert.
