Fresh Blueberry Mini-Pies (FP)

This is an historic recipe... one of the first THM recipes I created; I just tracked it down for a gal on Facebook. As you know I don't use Truvia anymore, but blueberries and hibiscus tea are both naturally sweet so it I made it again, I'd simply leave it out and perhaps reduce the amount of lemon juice. I labelled it "E" last year but it is "FP" in moderation. Enjoy!

What to do with fresh blueberries (E)! Yum yum yum! This totally takes me back to my mom's pie but has under 10 carbs as far as I can tell, and is in cute little individual servings. Boil 2 T dried hibiscus flowers (I got mine at our neighborhood Mexican market for $8 a pound) in 1 quart of water, then let sit with the lid on so it gets nice and strong. Meanwhile, wash and sort 1 1/2 to 2 c fresh blueberries, and divide among 12 cups of a muffin tin. Strain off the flowers from the still-hot tea, and add 2 T each of gelatin, lemon juice and truvia (I used homemade recipe from, plus 1 t of salt. Pour over berries to fill each cup. Put leftover jello mixture in a loaf pan-- this can be a FP treat! Let it all firm up overnight in the fridge (sorry, a couple of hours doesn't cut it). To remove from muffin tin, invert tin over a cutting board and run warm water over it. Bon appetit!!
