This is a very nice, refreshing and light dessert for a hot summer evening. Instead of canned blueberries in syrup I used a combination of frozen blueberries and fresh strawberries and raspberries from my garden. Made for PRMR Tag.
Made this with the grape gelatin but used thawed frozen blueberries instead of the canned ones, so didn't have the berry syrup to include! Not sure what difference that made, but I do know that I had a very tasty & presentable 'jello' dessert that was a hit! And, since I've always liked jello (I know, it's like every cola drink is a coke!), this recipe is a keeper in my kitchen! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Please Review My Recipe]
We liked this... I used grape jelly (jello) and followed the directions exactly, but the result was rather too sweet for us. Even sweet tooth DD tried it, liked it but wouldn't eat more than a couple of spoonfuls. I have no idea if grape jelly comes in a sugar free version ? if so I would like to try this again with that, if not I would like to try again with a different (sugar free) flavour. I think that maybe the sweetness of the syrup that the blueberries come in and the jelly combined are what makes this so very sweet ??? I would therefore increase the amount of pineapple in this, because that was liked a LOT as the "balance" in this. Please see my Rating System: 3 stars at the moment for a very interesting combination of flavours that DO go well together, but where the over sweetness was a factor that couldn't be ignored. I would like to tweek this a little in the future to see if I can find a ratio of these that suits us better, and to see if a sugar free version of the jello could solve this. If so, I will update my review. Great to have tried this though.. Thanks!
