Does anyone know how much koolaid to add to how much knox gelatin to make sf jello? I stay away from aspartame ( always have, long before atkins). Thanks!

Here's what I have :)

Sugar Free "Jello"

I make my own with Splenda, gelatin, and unsweetened Kool-aid mix.
You can get those small snack size plastic bowls with lids (like Glad
or Zip-loc) and make your own snack size treats.

2 pkg any flavor koolaid, unsweetened
3 packets knox gelatin
4 cups water
1 cup Splenda

Put 2 cups water in pan and sprinkle gelatin on to soften. Add
koolaid and Splenda. Turn on heat and bring mixture to a boil. Take
off heat and put 2 cups cold water in and mix well. Put in bowl or
mold and let set.

I make it too....I use 1 packet of kool-aid, 1 packet of gelatin and 10 packets of Splenda....I use about 1 cup of cold water with this and stir until dissolved and then add about 2-3 cups of boiling water...I like mine sort of soft set so I use more water than some would use....I also like to add to this a package of cream cheese and whisk until well blended...this is really great using the black cherry kool-aid and then add about 4-6 frozen sweet cherries to each dessert bowl (for OWL)....it is also very good using the cream cheese and some sliced frozen strawberries....then add some Land O Lakes low carb whipped cream to the top and its fabulous!

Keep in mind also that 1 cup of Splenda has 24 grams of carb, so don't forget to count that in your daily carb allowance. :)

Thank You Everyone! I use liquid Splenda, so there are no carbs, I love that stuff!

2 packs knox, one koolaid, three or four envelopes of splenda--I like it tangy.

If you use ice in place of half the water, it sets up almost instantly (10-15 minutes).

The more Gelatin you use, the stiffer the Jello. You can actually make Gummies by using less Water and more Gelatin/Sweetener:

Gummies:

1-2 cups Water
1 pkg Kool Aid (Unsweetened)
8-16 pkg Knox Gelatin
2 tsp Stevia Extract Powder*

Jello:

8 cups Water
1 pkg Kool Aid (Unsweetened)
8 pkg Knox Gelatin
1 tsp Stevia Extract Powder*

*1 tsp Stevia = ~1 cup Splenda Granular
