Ingredients

  • 1 packet unflavored gelatin
  • 3 cups strawberries, fresh or frozen

Helpful hints

  • Reduce carbohydrate to 20 grams per serving (1-1/2 carb choice) by substituting Splenda® granular sweetener for 4 tablespoons sugar added to the berries.
  • Egg whites contribute approximately 3-1/2 grams high quality protein per serving.
