Jello shots are a fun way to serve your friends drinks at a party, but they’re often loaded with as much sugar as liquor.
These take it easy on both, so you can enjoy a few slices without getting tipsy. Since these have the natural sweetness of green apples paired with caramel flavors, it’s probably a good thing that one apple equals less than a shot of butterscotch Schnapps.

1 Tbsp. unflavored gelatin
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup unsweetened coconut milk
2 drops yellow food coloring (optional)
1 envelope hot chocolate
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup butterscotch Schnapps
Lemon juice as neededGet the Recipe
Who knew fresh strawberries could be nature’s shot glass? Cut off the stem, make space in the middle, and a large strawberry is the perfect size for Jello shots.

It’s almost as easy to make single-serving snacks as it is to buy the prepackaged kind. These make-your-own Jello cups only require a few minutes in the kitchen.
If you want to take these snacks on-the-go, pour the mixture into individual containers, or use a silicone ice cube tray for bite-sized Jello jigglers.
If you’re looking for an easy cheesecake recipe, try one that has gelatin. The best part is there’s no baking required. The crust is a simple blend of oats and almond butter.

Protein-packed desserts don’t have to be boring. This one only takes three ingredients, and yet when you pour it into a Jello mold (or any silicone mold), it’s fancy enough to serve to guests.
What if I told you that just about everything magazines and trainers “teach” you about dieting is wrong?
What if you could build muscle and lose fat eating “naughty” foods every week?
What if you didn’t have to suffer through low-carb dieting to get lean? In fact, what if you could eat all the carbs you wanted?
And what if you didn’t have to gorge yourself just to gain muscle and didn’t have to put on pounds and pounds of ugly fat, either?
In short, what if I told you that proper dieting--whether you want to maximize fat loss or muscle growth--is much simpler and more enjoyable than you’ve been led to believe?
Imagine eating delicious, filling meals every day...never feeling starved or stuffed...having great energy levels and workouts...and watching your body respond exactly as you desire, dropping fat or adding muscle each and every week.
And imagine finally understanding how proper dieting really works, never again falling for the BS, tricks, and gimmicks pushed by “gurus” and other shysters.
Well, I have good news.
All these “fantasies” can be a reality...if you know how to do a handful of “little” things correctly.
You see, when you know how to diet properly--and this doesn’t mean learning to eat boiled chicken and raw broccoli six times per day--getting lean and muscular becomes simple, convenient, and dare I say...enjoyable.
