In a mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese until smooth. In separate bowl, beat the whipping cream to soft peaks.


In a saucepan on the stove, sprinkle the gelatin over the water–let rest for about 1 minute. Then stir in the Swerve, lime juice, Lime Vitality Essential Oil, and Stevia drops. Turn the heat on low and stir until the sugar dissolves.
