Summer Treats with #GayLeaFoods #Contest


I love indulging on cravings in the summertime. While I'm usually a "salty" gal, this pregnancy has definitely played with my sweet tooth. Of course, it's really important not to overindulge, pregnant or otherwise, so I'm always looking for sweet treats that won't send my sugar levels spiking. 

I don't know many people who don't like Jell-O. And, I don't know many people who don't like Whipped Cream. Why not take the best of both worlds and put them together?

I give you my Super Simple Summer Jell-O Treat, with Gay Lea Whipped Cream


There's not much to this "recipe"; in fact, it's hardly a recipe at all. Follow the instructions on the Jell-O box, allow the Jell-O to cool and top with Gay Lea Whipped Cream. Here's where you can have some fun: play with the vessel. I used paper cups for Isabelle, large plastic margarita glasses, and even mini wine glasses! (I cooled the Jell-O on an angle in the mini-wine glasses to add a little bit of pizazz!) Of course, you can DEFINITELY add some vodka to the adult Jell-O drinks, but I can't partake in that fun. Not this year.

Here's the thing: when you add the whipped cream to the Jell-O, it adds this delicious creaminess and actually tastes like a low-fat panna cotta! It's so yummy and addictive.

We had never given Isabelle Jell-O, until today, and let me tell you -- she ate the entire cup, whipped cream and all. Flavour is up to you, but I do recommend the strawberry Jell-O; after all, who can fight Strawberries and Cream?

We have two AWESOME giveaways this month, courtesy of Simply Suppa and Gay Lea Foods! First, who wants to win 12 free Gay Lea coupons? Enter my rafflecopter below.
