Ingredients
 

Instructions
 

  • In a small bowl, mix together the sugar-free lemon gelatin and boiling water until the gelatin is fully dissolved. This should take about 2 minutes. Let it cool down for a bit.
  • In a big bowl, use an electric mixer on medium speed to blend the fat-free sugar-free instant vanilla pudding mix, 1 cup of the lemon yogurt, skim milk, and fat-free plain yogurt until everything is mixed well.
  • Add the gelatin mixture to the big bowl and stir until everything is thoroughly combined.
  • Pour the mixture into individual dessert glasses. Cover them up and put them in the refrigerator. Let them chill until they're firm, which usually takes at least 8 hours.
  • When it's time to serve, add 2 tablespoons of the remaining lemon yogurt on top of each dessert glass.

Tips and Tricks

Ingredient Substitutions:

Yogurt: If you prefer a creamier texture, consider using Greek yogurt instead of regular yogurt. For those who want a vegan option, coconut or almond-based yogurt can be excellent substitutes.

Gelatin: Agar-agar is a plant-based gelatin substitute that works well if you’re looking for a vegetarian or vegan alternative. Use it in the same proportion as the gelatin called for in the recipe.

Milk: To make this dessert lactose-free, you can use any non-dairy milk like almond, soy, or oat milk in place of skim milk.

Process Tips:

Dissolving Gelatin: Ensure the gelatin is completely dissolved in the boiling water to avoid any lumps. A whisk can be more effective than a spoon for this task.

Mixing: For a smoother texture, mix the yogurt and pudding mixture a bit longer than usual, ensuring all ingredients are thoroughly blended without any lumps.

Enhancements:

Flavor Boost: Add a teaspoon of lemon zest to the gelatin mixture for an extra zing. If you love vanilla, a dash of pure vanilla extract can also enhance the flavor.

Sweetness: Adjust the sweetness by adding a bit of honey or a sugar substitute if the dessert isn’t sweet enough for your taste.

Presentation Tips:

Garnishing: Garnish with fresh berries, mint leaves, or a sprinkle of crushed nuts before serving to add a touch of elegance and a bit of texture.

Layering: For a fancier presentation, consider layering the dessert ingredients. Start with a layer of the yogurt mixture, then add a thin layer of lemon curd, and repeat. The visual of layered textures makes the dessert more appealing.

Storage:

Refrigeration: This dessert is best enjoyed cold. Keep it refrigerated until ready to serve. It can typically be stored in the fridge for up to 3 days.

Freezing: For a frozen treat, you can freeze the dessert for about 4 hours. This will give it a consistency similar to a frozen yogurt, perfect for hotter days.
