Instead of Plain Gelatin and splenda, I used a box of diet Lime Jello. I dont know if thats what gave it the yucky flavor but I really don't like it very much!

I won't even try this recipe. At 22+grams of carbs per serving, I can think of many other foods I would rather eat to blow my Atkins diet. Not sure how this showed up on a low carb dessert search.
Use unsweetened almond milk instead of the milk to lower the carb count.
I am going to attempt this recipe with Sweetzfree (no carb sweetener) Heavy cream, and full fat cream cheese... that should help the carb count and taste tremendously. I think someone should have put this recipe in the low fat, instead.
